BEING YOUR OWN VALENTINE


Happy Valentines Day! In the past I have been that person that tries to forget that this day even exists and I'm not going to lie, I've been pretty bitter about the whole day being a huge fat reminder that I am 1000% single! This year I'm taking a new approach and have decided that this year I'm going to be my own Valentine!

The past few weeks have not been easy and I've realised just how important it is that I take some time to just truly appreciate my body and myself. I am the kind of person that is pretty critical about myself and if something goes wrong or there's a problem within my life, I am so quick to place all the blame on myself. I've been focusing on being a little kinder to myself and I am in a much better place than I was a few weeks ago. I feel like we spend so much of our time focusing on other people - how they are feeling, what we can do to help them, how we can support them when they are feeling down that we tend to neglect the most important person in our life, ourselves.

Self care and self love is so important and I feel like so few of us truly take part in this act that is truly looking after and caring for ourselves. It's so easy to neglect our bodies, our feelings, our minds! But take it from someone who recently found out the hard way, the consequences of not doing so can be so damaging. So, taking all of this into consideration I decided that for this day of love and showing love I have decided to love myself and make a promise to myself that I will try much harder to show myself the self love I deserve! I always get down at this time of year because I have no one to love and no one who loves me so why not be my own Valentine and treat myself to a few Valentines treats because why the hell not! I have been loving all the anti-valentines vibes and this top is just incredible! I haven't worn pink in over 5 years and I am willing to break this streak because this t-shirt just speaks to me on a spiritual level! I also treated myself to some new underwear from Monki because nothing says I love myself than feeling hella confident in a pair of matching cute underwear!



So, some of you may have noticed I have a lil something on my arm. I got a new tattoo and it honestly couldn't have come at a more perfect time in my life and journey to self love and acceptance. I don't want to talk about this too much because I really want to dedicate a whole post to the process once it's healed. But the meaning behind this one is exactly the whole point of this post - self-love. I kinda have this joke where I've always said that if a man brought me a black rose I would love them forever. So, I decided to buy myself a permanent black rose as a constant reminder that the only person I need to love me, is me. I've been so focused on wanting someone to love me that I completely neglected that I don't need someone to do that for me, I'm the only love I need. I am so completely in love with this tattoo and every time I look at it, it's my lil constant reminder to be kind to myself and love myself for who I am! 


So this Valentines day - be your own Valentine! Appreciate just how amazing and incredible you are. Say it aloud - I love myself and I am a badass that is worth so much and can achieve anything! We all deserve to love ourselves this Valentines!

  1. Love this idea! I'm single too, but even when I've been in relationships I've had pretty crappy Valentine's days 😂 I usually just treat it like any other day now.
