I like to call V-day and as may days as possible a self-love day because we spend so much time/money/energy on gifts, food, etc for others yet we don't show ourselves enough love day to day. I know I'm preaching to some mother's, wives, lovers, friends out there. I am one too and certainly not perfect at this but how about choosing a day where you pamper the heck out of yourself and truly show you how much you can <3!
So here's the thing...
You can't give that which you don't have. If you show yourself how much you can express to yourself and give to yourself then inevitably you will FILL yourself with all you need so that then your cup spills over and now you can give that to others. These quotes from Iyanla Vanzant resonated with me so much and changed me forever because she is so right! Here's a link to the the full segment with Oprah where she discusses it: Iyanla Vanzant on Oprah's LifeClass
It's self-full to be first, to be as good as possible to you, to take care of you, to keep you whole and healthy. That doesn't mean you disregard everything and everyone, but you want to come with your cup full. My cup runneth over. What comes out of the cup is for you all, what's in the cup is mine. - Iyanla Vanzant
When you start sacrificing yourself for other people, you make them a thief because they are stealing from you what you need and they don't even know it. - Iyanla Vanzant
So the questions now are:
Are you? Yes! Now is the time to truly and completely love yourself and be your most authentic self and live your most authentic life.
