In case you haven’t noticed, it’s Valentine’s Day today. And instead of brandishing my love for my man, I’ve decided that today I’m making more of an effort for a little more self- love.
So often I get trapped in a whirlwind of thoughts and wrapped up in daily tasks that I forget to be a bit kinder to myself. This is compounded by ticking off tasks on a list and forgetting to take note of what I’ve actually done, rather choosing to focus on what’s still to do. So I’ve decided to clear out the internal clutter of negative thinking and make an effort to be my own cheerleader. And, to take stock of all the good little things I achieve day-to-day. The plan is to make this a daily occurrence and like real love, the challenge is to feel and nurture it everyday, not just on February 14th.
So (starting) today, I’m celebrating loving me, by using kinder words, thoughts and internal reminders to myself, that I’m doing ok..
I’ll let you know how it goes.
