Whoever said Valentine’s Day is for lovers? Why not make it a day to celebrate you? After all, you can’t be the best partner, mother or friend you can possibly be until you love yourself first. Here is a list of 5 ways you can show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day.
Forget Past Mistakes
Forget the bad decisions you made last year and embrace the current moment. Mistakes happen so that you can learn from it but you must not let it hold you back from moving forward. Forgive yourself darling, dust yourself off and move on.
Learn to Smile at Yourself
This may seem awkward at first but look into the mirror and smile at your reflection. We admire and appreciate the beauty of others but rarely take the time to appreciate ourselves. No one knows the struggles of that girl in the mirror more than you do so smile and learn to admire her.
Invest in Yourself
Save some money to upgrade a skill you’ve always wanted to learn or buy that vintage bag you’ve been working hard for. Because, why not? Don’t feel guilty spending money on yourself especially when it’ll enrich you and can benefit your future. There is also nothing wrong about indulging yourself whether it is spending a day in the spa or doing some much needed retail theraphy because a calm and happy mindset is an investment too!
Celebrate Small Victories
Learned to cook something you saw on your Facebook feed today? Celebrate! Found a new hobby? Celebrate! In fact, share them with the people who would celebrate it with you! After all, these are the little things in life that will inspire and create dreams.
Visualize Yourself Achieving
It’s perfectly fine to dream and dream BIG. In fact, if your dreams don’t scare you then they’re not big enough! Make a mental image of yourself achieving those dreams whether it’s travelling around the world or publishing your own book. The more often you have that vision in your mind, it will turn from dreams into goals and will eventually become your reality. Believe in yourself and you’ll be surprise at how high you can reach.
