Whether you think of a candlelight dinner and chocolates or you think of Valentine’s Day with disdain, there’s no doubt that it’s all about LOVE.  But do you celebrate the perfect Valentine? The one who you should be loving each and every day?  (Stay with me on this because as it’s also my BIRTHDAY, I have a special request from you. 😉 )

You might have guessed but that every day Valentine is YOU.

It’s so easy to love other people – family, children, friends… But that self-love that is oh-so-popular to talk about on blogs and on Instagram is such a foreign concept to way too many people.

The fact is that we put ourselves last & on the backburner.  We can say the kindest things to other people and yet we use such negative self-talk with ourselves – words we’d never speak to another human.  Crazy right?!

We sacrifice day after day because we tell ourselves it’s “selfish” if we don’t.

I disagree.  And on THIS Valentine’s Day, I sincerely ask you to do something different.

I want you to celebrate YOU.

Whether it’s buying yourself a rose, going for a glass of wine solo, or perhaps taking quiet time to read that you usually give up for family.  Or, better yet, maybe it’s even standing in front of the mirror and speaking aloud kind, loving words to yourself about yourself.  Might take some courage and you might feel a little funny at first….yet I can literally guarantee you that this positive self talk and affirmations will CHANGE the way you feel, in a good way. 🙂

Because the truth is, when we love ourselves more we’re happier and everyone around us benefits from that happiness.

We are better spouses, parents, friends, and siblings.  We perform better at work, we sleep better and more.

Everything changes when you create more happiness via self-love and appreciation.

I would be SO HAPPY if you would COMMENT below and tell me what you’re going to do to show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day so I can celebrate that with you. <3  Consider it a b-day gift to me…and the best V-day gift to YOU that you can give yourself this year.

Much love!!
