LOVE SELF-LOVE: Its all well and good this self-love malarkey, but I don’t know about you, self-love can feel like a slippery concept to get my head around. So here’s five tangible ways I’m going to show love towards number one today. Who else is with me?:
🖤1. Me time 🖤
We are all so busy being busy, doing and being for others, that time to set aside for ourselves feels impossible. The problem with this is, without time to be alone and to reflect, we are literally being pulled in a thousand different directions, like some sort of tear 'n' share. Maybe I’ll attempt a hot cuppa and a biccy. Start small!
🖤2. Be gentle on my imperfections🖤
Right I’m putting it out there, so hopefully I can do it; today I’m going to try and give myself a break from the ever present critical voice in my head continually telling me I’m crap.
🖤3. Have a gratitude attitude 🖤
I’m really bad at doing this, but today I will try and acknowledge the things/people I am grateful for. Showing gratitude is like being your own best mate; when the chips are down you'll be there, holding your own hand and softly pointing out the silver lining.
🖤4. Let it go 🖤
It is time to leave the past to the past and move on. I’m fairly terrible at overthinking things, but I must stop. Stop it right now. Stop analysing it. Stop trying to figure it out or justify it. Let. It. Go.
🖤5. Nourish the body and mind 🖤
Yoga and a bath. Not at the same time mind, that’s a little weird and probably quite dangerous. I’m not sure quite when I’ll fit these in today but both make me feel amazing. Maybe I’ll have to settle for five extra minutes in the shower and a long stretch! 🤣
So, this Valentine's Day, let's live the true meaning of love by embracing our wonderfully imperfect selves. Now, if that isn't the gift of love, then I don't know what is.
