“How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you”- Rupi Kaur
Tomorrow is February 14th aka the only day in the year that is dedicated solely to love. Because holy forbid that love is shown any other day of the year right? I kid!
I don’t hate Valentine’s Day in fact I think it’s cute! Not my preference but it’s cute to see loved up couples all over the place!
To be honest though I miss the times in elementary school where people would pass out those cute V-Day cards. I remember putting so much thought to the ones I would give to certain people; only giving the best ones to my close friends. Those were the days!
But fast forward years later and I have yet to celebrate a Valentine’s with anyone. So over the years I have done things to celebrate Earth’s dedicated love day by myself.
Because self love is the BEST love!
The most important meal of the day serving it up Gary’s way! (That’s a scene from Spongebob if you didn’t catch that.) But no seriously making yourself or buying your favorite breakfast can literally change up your whole mood for the day! Especially if you don’t have the luxury of doing that any other day.
Spa yourself baby
Treat yourself to a at home spa day or actually go to a spa! I mean if you have the funds to do so. I’m cheap so I love at home spa days! I love to put on a face mask my favorite is India Clay Mask in case you need a recommendation. Draw yourself a bath and put in a bath bomb. Listen to your favorite calming music and just relax.
More food dudes and dudettes
Personally I feel like you should treat your self any day with your favorite foods but why not do it especially on love day? Eat your favorite foods and desserts! Make it a cheat day if you do that sort of thing!
Journal your thoughts and dreams
I LOVE journaling. Seriously any chance I can I love to write! Take the time on this beautiful day to do so! Light up your favorite candle and just write your dreams down! Your affirmations! In fact I want you to go to the mirror right now and just tell yourself that you are a badass human being! That you are loved and cherished. Anything you want! Do it!
Gather up the squad
If possible gather up your friends and don’t spend that day alone if you don’t want to that is! Share the love!
Show me the movies
It doesn’t need to be romcoms! Seriously it doesn’t! Just because it’s love day doesn’t mean you have to binge cheesy romcoms! Personally on this day I will probably binge some John Hughes movies because I love them so much.
What are some ways you celebrate Valentine’s Day? That is if you do celebrate; if not what do you do?
Until next time!
