“Love Yourself First” – It’s The Greatest Gift You Can Give.

 

“When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits – anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.”

Kim McMillen

 

When it comes to love… and holidays and especially Valentine’s Day, we sometimes feel lonely if we don’t have a man in our lives to celebrate these special holidays. Have you ever felt like something was missing? I did… The feeling of loneliness comes from the absence of the person who you felt completed you. Or you may even decide to give an old flame a call (who clearly wasn’t the right man for you), only to fill that empty space.

Here’s 8 Steps to “Love Yourself First” – avoid those old flame calls (the regrettable “booty call”):

  1. Start a Journal. Write about your day: (1) something that you struggled with or (2) a wonderful experience you had. Let your mind wander. You may discover hidden answers to your questions.
  2. Set time aside each week for self-care. Treat yourself to a Spa Day and a box of Godiva chocolates (yum….my favorite).
  3. Buy some lavender and tuck it under your pillow at night. You’ll be amazed how relaxed you’ll feel.
  4. Remind yourself breathe! Just one cleansing, mindful breath, each day, can transform your present space of being.
  5. Practice positive thinking. Fake it ’till you make it. Seeing the glass half-full can be contagious.
  6. Reach out to a friend. This includes a friend you’ve yet to meet. Try to find one new person to say hello to every day – in person. Save the e-mails for after you’ve made an authentic connection. It will make your heart happy.
  7. Create a morning ritual. Whether it’s a cup of tea or a morning walk, find one simple thing you can do every morning that centers you for the day.
  8. Cook a Nourishing Meal and Taste your food. Slow yourself down and engage in your meal. We often choose to eat a food because it tastes good yet, we are rarely thoughtful enough to experience and savor each bite.  PS: 1-2 pieces of Godiva Dark Chocolates can make a world of a difference… 😊
