We have become so accustomed to the idea that, Valentine’s day is and should be about being in a relationship and that leaves us feeling unloved and hating the day. Valentine’s day is about celebrating love and that love does not necessarily have to be within a relationship. So if you are not part of a couple enjoy the day celebrating the things that you love, your family, friends, your pets or just the everyday things in life that puts a smile on your face.
Love is about many things but I believe that the most important element of love is to love ourselves because if we do not love ourselves first how can we be open to receive the love of others.
We can celebrate our love by spending time with our girlfriends, spoiling ourselves with that special item we have been saving up for, buying our favourite flowers, lipstick or perfume.
So this valentine’s day lets love ourselves by feeling gorgeous and taking care of ourselves first.
Gift yourself with your favourite flowers there is nothing like fresh flowers to brighten up a space and put a smile on our face.
Pamper your self
We all lead such busy lives and our mind is constantly racing with what not to do and ticking of the things on our daily “to do” list that taking time out for ourselves is usually not on our list. So make this valentine’s day a pamper day.
