Valentine’s Day!! The day of champagne, chocolate, and good food!! Today is the day that we celebrate our significant others but there’s no denying that there are a TON of incredible people out there who may be single or who have loved and lost. So, today I wanted to reach out to you and give you a little reminder … just in case you need it!
Many of you know that I recently went on a cruise with my mom and we had the surreal opportunity to sit and listen to Oprah speak one evening … and in the words of the wise one herself, “Your life is a journey of learning to love yourself first and then extending that love to others in every encounter”,
She couldn’t be more right. Sometimes we go through life longing for that “soulmate” (trust me, I didn’t find Justin until I was 34 … thankfully he was young and fell in love!! lol!) and we tend to beat ourselves up when we don’t find “the one” as quickly as we would like. However, the one thing to keep in mind is the ONLY person we need is OURSELVES!!
So, this Valentine’s Day … treat your damn self. Do something that YOU love. Treat yourself to takeout, crawl into your romper, turn on Netflix, eat all the chocolate and drink the damn wine. If that’s not your thing then do whatever it is that calms your mind and makes your soul happy because the ONLY person who can make you happy right now … is you.
Don’t forget to embrace this part of your life as well … sometimes we rush through the parts of our lives that we “think” we are unhappy in until we look back and realize just how good we had it. Cherish the nights that you can pig out on junk food in your underwear and fall asleep sprawled out across the bed because one day you’ll wake up shivering at the foot of your bed because your fiance, two dogs, toddler, and baby have completely taken over.
Last but not least … just remember that I LOVE YOU and so do so many other people and this world wouldn’t be quite the same without you.
Now, go grab your favourite snack and take off your bra … unless you’re at work … then maybe wait until you get home.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!
