Self-Love; The Importance Of Putting Yourself First

I sit on the floor of me bedroom as I write this 3 days before Valentines Day. I can already feel the looming social pressure of this Hallmark holiday.

It’s hard to ignore Valentine’s Day when it feels like everyone you know is suddenly in a relationship professing their love on Instagram.

Listen, I am not hating on the lover’s out there, but I just took a different approach to Valentine’s Day this year. And it was ALL about me for once.

“I choose to love myself fully” and “I accept where I am today”. These are my 2 mantras for Valentines Day 2018.

This year I am focusing on being okay with who I am and where I stand on my self-growth journey. This is the year I will remind myself that loving who I am is more important than anything or anyone else in the world. If I am able to be made of love, I will have the capacity to give some of that love out to others in it’s purist form.

That being said..

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY. May you love yourself fully.

 

The First Time Away Felt Like Home

Have you ever fallen in love? Did you realize it was love before it took over your entire body, mind and spirit? It’s hard to put that sort of feeling into words, to share it with another and convey the magnitude of the feeling.

The first time I met New Zealand, I fell in love.

It was during my trip when I realized there was no going back; I was inspired by every “being” I met.

Two years later, I sit at my computer writing about inspired beings in inspiring places.
