Love, relationships and romance are all around us during the weeks that lead up to Valentine’s Day. Traditionally celebrated by couples as an occasion to express their love for one another, this holiday can be observed in a more modern, empowering light as well. Whether in a relationship or single, one of the best ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day is by practicing self-love.
Girlfriends and wives: Showing your passion for someone you love is a wonderful thing, but don’t lose sight of the most important person in your life – you.
Single ladies: It may be easy to feel down or lonely during this romantic holiday, but Valentine’s Day can truly be an exciting time to celebrate yourself above all. It’s all about perspective.
Loving yourself is something that you should focus on every day, but Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to dedicate some time to yourself. Here are 3 simple ways that you can strengthen your self-love this holiday:
Write yourself a love letter. That’s right. Address yourself about why you love you. Write down all of your amazing qualities and all of the accomplishments that you are proud of. Remind yourself of all the good things you have done for others and any positive changes that you have made. Reflecting on positive life events and personal attributes is a simple way to build confidence and self-love.
Pamper yourself. Eat breakfast in bed or take yourself out for the day. Get a massage, get a manicure or just start off the day with some exercise. Wear your favorite outfit and buy yourself something special and that makes you feel good. You deserve to be happy!
Spend quality time with yourself. We are all guilty of being too busy to take a second for ourselves. Use V-Day as a time to sit down, relax and be present. You might enjoy practicing meditation, picking up an inspirational book or taking a nice walk. Clear your mind and forget about any stress for the day.
Spend some time loving yourself, and you will find it easier to fit these small routines into your daily schedule. Besides, as Lucille Ball once said, “you really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
Happy Valentine’s Day!
As 2015 quickly approaches, women everywhere are coming up with their New Year’s Resolutions. Some of the most popular goals, such as losing weight and eating healthy, are definitely amazing for the body and can help build self-esteem. While these are essential life decisions, it is also necessary to make an effort in loving and empowering yourself.
You may be familiar with the phrase beauty comes from within. When we put more emphasis on who we are as women, we can truly connect with that saying. Loving ourselves allows us to be empowered, stable and grounded. We are less likely to self-sabotage and search for validation from others when we recognize the beauty and strength that lives inside of us. Once we are happy and secure with ourselves internally, all external experiences often follow suit.
When you truly feel self-love, you believe that you are more deserving of the things you want in life. This empowered outlook is often the stepping-stone in chasing your dreams. You will find that you are more motivated and more focused to accomplish whatever it is that you want, and you will end up getting exactly what you’ve worked hard for.
Being an empowered, successful, confident woman all starts from the inside. Once this power is recognized and tapped into, life becomes beautiful and everything falls into place. Keep this idea of empowerment with you as you continue your journey into 2015, and we will try our best to continue inspiring you!
