Valentine’s Day may be stereotypically about your significant other and showing your love and appreciation for them, but throughout the years, your friends and family have shown you that it’s about a lot more than that. Valentine’s Day is about showing your love for everyone in your life – new friends, old friends, family… All of those people that you love in lots of different ways.
This year, I want you to make Valentine’s Day about all of those people, but I also want you to make Valentine’s Day about loving yourself and your life.
Loving yourself/ taking care of yourself doesn’t make you a selfish person. It makes you healthy and happy; remember that. You’ve been working hard lately, and I’m so proud of your dedication and focus. You have matured and grown so much in such a short amount of time. The “this year” you and the “last year” you don’t even compare. You have proven to yourself and all of those people around you that you’re going places, and you haven’t lost sight of what’s important.
You haven’t really had a chance to take a break. Okay, except for Thursday when all you did was watch Melissa and Joey for hours. So watch sappy romance movies with your boyfriend. Call your loved ones, and let them know how much you appreciate them; you have been blessed to have them in your life. And indulge in that chocolate heart. You deserve it, girl.
It’s easy to get caught up in the rigors of everyday life, so today, take some time to love yourself and enjoy the small things in life.
Your happy, content, grateful self
