What if I just loved myself this Valentine’s?
Hustle girl. You’re almost there I tell myself. I’m going to make it! Yeah, I think this time for sure. Although it’s never happened. I have a good chance of making it. This time for sure. Everyone will be cheering for me. There will be a standing ovation. I will finally get to breathe. This must be what marathon runners feel like when they cross the finish line. Will I be able to cross the finish line? Will I be able to cross everything off that never ending to do list that is a part of my and every other woman’s life?
No matter how many things are on it. No matter how many things you knock off your list. There never seems to be complete satisfaction from fulfilling the demands of others. It always seems like their focus is on what they need next from you or what you haven’t done yet. Whether it be family members, associates or your employer. It makes me wonder, will they ever be happy?
Then I realize. I don’t give a f@&k! I’m going to make myself happy. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner after all. I’m going to do things that make me feel appreciated. Things that make me feel loved. Things that make me feel wanted.
My go to solution to get a self-love fix is to focus on things that I love to pamper myself with. Here is my list. And please feel free to add what you love in the comments below. Your feedback is certainly one of the things I love most J
Things that I LOOOVE that love me right back
Late night impromptu conversations with friends
Gazing at the stars and wondering what the meaning of life is
Riding my bike into the forest being chased by the rays of the sun
Hot guys reading books
Hot mamas power lifting in the gym
An unexpected day off from work
Finding a new series on Netflix to binge watch with a fridge full of food
Buying an expensive grocery item and using it as a face mask
Listening to an Adele record on a record player manufactured in 2015
Women in the Senate telling it like it is
Paying off a credit card
Making more money than what I needed
Smiling at babies
Watching Ellen giveaways
Flights of Mezcal
Cheap red wine
Expensive white wine
A clean and organized house
Taking day trips into the Shenandoah Valley
Watching Reality TV with an entire Boston Crème pie, bottle of wine and a bouquet of wild flowers (Not apologizing).
Going to the movies by myself (Highly underrated)
Waking up productive
Cutting my own hair and having it come out pretty freaking cute
And one more thing that I love. How the focus of things that I love only expands the more I focus on things that I…love.
Life is stressful. Sometimes stopping you dead in your tracks. I don’t think you should just ignore life’s challenges and just focus on things that you love. I’m saying in the spirit of Valentine’s Day karate chop those challenges in the ass and dwell on what you…looove.
