……So what is your definition of Valentines Day?
Valentines Day to me is a beautiful day about people going the extra mile to show love to one another, and not just loving others but making sure we love ourselves as well!
-You have to love yourself before you love others.-
Here are some things you can do to love yourself this Valentines Day, you can also do these things anytime during the year!
- Keep a success journal; list everything you accomplish every day, list nice things you have done for people
- Do something nice for yourself on a regular basis; buy yourself gifts, go to the spa, take a vacation, plan a girls/guys day
- Treat yourself with respect; treat yourself as if you were your own best friend, be yourself as your idea of a perfect person
