Red love hearts are never far. Love songs are being played every time you turn on the radio. Cupid is seemingly everywhere drawing back his bow. The day of love is fast approaching and love it or hate it valentine's day is unavoidable. I am big fan of spreading the love and positive vibes, and if you've been around these parts before, you'll know that I am a big promoter of self love.
This Valentine's Day I will be loving myself, and you should too. You yourself as much as anybody else in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
Self love is so important. Self love is having regard for your own well-being and happiness. It is respecting yourself, being open to personal growth. It is choosing ourselves, trusting ourselves, giving ourselves quality me time and not feeling guilty for doing so. Self love is whatever you make of it. It is a practise rather than a destination and it is the most positive thing you can do for yourself.
You can be the most beautiful, warm, loving person in the world and everybody sees lights and rainbows when they are around you, when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, or believe it, all of that doesn't matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticise yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.
So love yourself this valentine's day, and everyday after that. Treat yourself to something nice, and whatever you end up doing with your significant other, I hope it's lovely. If you do not have a significant other, you enjoy being able to starfish in your bed.
All the love.
