Love Brings You Joy

Happy Valentine’s Day,

Some of us may be Boo’d up, Single Ladies, or in a Whatchamacallit that’s all fine.This is a judgment free zone. However, I am learning that the most important relationship is one that you have with You.

If you can’t love you how are you going love someone else

Today is the day of love. Each day I’m most grateful for the people and things that spark love and joy.

Love brings joy and joy is love.

During this month I really got back to the “basics” and doing the things that I love i.e thrifting, dancing, writing, and cooking. All things that I feel are part of my #selflove. They spark love and joy.

Yes, #selflove has become a big craze all over social media. However, the beauty of self love is you get to define it. You own what self love is. For some people it may be bi-weekly trips to the nail salon or weekly therapy sessions. Others may say no to obligations to enjoy time alone. Again, self love is what you make it.

Here are a few things I do to show self love

Sweater: Goodwill | Faux Moto Jacket: GoodWill|Skirt: Target|Boots: Target
  • Dance it out (create a playlist with your favorite songs and have a party for one)
  • Put on something you find sexy and strut around your house like it’s a runaway.
  • Write love letters/notes to yourself
  • Take yourself on a date
  • Have a Spa day/night at home (DIY facial, mani, and pedi)
  • Take a bath
  • Watch your favorite shows/read a book
  • Unplug from social media and phone

Choose you. You should be your first choice.

Even if you spent today with those you love or alone remember that loving you should be your first priority. Learning to love all parts of you will allow you to loving others.

Life’s a journey. Show up. Be Bold. Stand out.
