“You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first.” Am I the only one that relates the term “self-care” to a face mask, bubble bath, and dimmed lights? Either way… Your first act of self-care is going to be actually sticking with me, and reading this until the very end… I know […]

Your first act of self-care is going to be actually sticking with me, and reading this until the very end… I know very difficult. But, you got this.
You can do it.
The month of new beginnings has finally ended, and now it is February. We all know what that means… Target is exploding with everything made in red and pink, teddy bears are bigger than ever, and soon all social media platforms will flood with couple pictures galore.
Valentine’s Day is approaching and love is in the air…
A day specifically set aside to celebrate our loved ones, but it now seems to have a few nicknames. Have you heard of “Single’s Awareness Day” or “Galen-tine’s Day”
No matter the name, the meaning remains the same.
Now, do not get me wrong. I love, love, so I definitely am all for a good Valentine’s day celebration.
By celebration I am referring to my Valentine’s Day for the past three years…which includes but is not limited too….
Now, that might seem a little “extra” and perhaps taking self-care to a whole different extreme.
However, every year I have celebrated this way I always think to myself. “Why do I not do this more often?” I mean truthfully I am not a “certified adult” yet, so the treat-yo-self fund is at an all time low. But, there are plenty of ways that I have learned how to care for myself without all of the hype and money spending.
I have also heard a lot of anti-valentine’s day people suggest that “You should treat your significant other like it is Valentine’s Day everyday.”
Could this mean… “You should treat yourself like it is Valentine’s Day everyday.”
Yes, yes it does. You deserve it.
Love comes in all different shapes, sizes, and forms. Through practicing self-care and self-love, I have learned what truly makes me happy and helps me get through the week.
Self-care and self-love has always been important to me because with these two actions you can find what makes you happy… by yourself, for yourself.
No one can ever take that away from you!
Share with someone you know that needs a little self-love!
