A one week journey to self love

  


I feel that we as women sometimes rely too much on the acceptance of other people in our lives; especially from the opposite sex. We make ourselves look and smell fabulous hoping they’ll notice. Then when they don’t notice we parted our hair differently or how sexy our silhouette looks in the new dress we bought our feelings get hurt. We feel dejected and drown our sorrows in a carton of ice cream while having a pity party thrown for us by us.

   We have to stop doing this to ourselves. We need to learn how to love ourselves and do wonderful things for just us. Who says we can’t get all dolled up for our own benefit? While it’s great to get recognition from other people specifically from the opposite sex… it feels pretty good to do it for us too.

   This week I’m going to be focusing on self-love. I’m sure I’m not the only one that forgets to do nice things for myself. So maybe this will help you too. For the next week I’ll be doing something nice for myself everyday. We were all born with a nurturing instinct but we have to stop putting ourselves last on the list all of the time.


After searching online I kept coming across step by step lists for how to love yourself. Apparently this is a big thing! One main thing that was on each list was to write 5 things you like about yourself. So that's what I'm doing for day one. You should try it too.

Good Luck!

  1. This is fab-u-lous! I love that you touched upon this topic. This is something I talk about all the time. I love to empower women and I always try to teach this. I always say you have to love yourself before you can expect anyone else to. I truly live by that and I talk from experience. When I was younger I my life was a roller coaster, I had so much confidence at one point and then stupid boys broke me down. After I figured out that no one can make you feel any way without your consent then I also learned how to start loving myself. And that the only person I should ever try to please or seek approval from is ME. After I figured this out everything else just fell into place. So I am so happy you got dolled up for yourself and just to feel good. Remember you are beautiful!

    1. Thank you so much! I know how you feel. When we're younger we don''t realize just how much we allow other people especially the opposite sex control how we feel. Once we learn to love ourselves we then can control how we feel.
