Inspiration for Moms - Learn to Self Love on Valentine's Day

February 13, 2020 1 Comment

It's Valentine's Day this week. Every year when this week rolls by, I tend to think about this holiday a lot. Why? Because I used to hate Valentine's Day.

Growing up, I didn't like the way I looked when I wasn't smiling in photos. I also didn't like how my face looked when my head wasn't tilted the right way for a photo.

But hey, here is it.

My face. Not smiling and not tilted.

Just straight on.

My first two decades of life, I had people tell me I'm not pretty. Adults and peers. I even had a constant reminder by an adult who would tell me I'd never be beautiful or have boyfriends because I was flat chested and would always be boobless. Did it affect the way I saw myself? Yes. Did it crush me? Almost.

It took my third decade of life to realize - I don't care what other people think about what I look like. Because guess what? This is me. My face. And all that matters is when I look in the mirror - that my opinion of what I look like ... my face ... it's what I think that matters. No one else's opinion matters. Because ultimately, I'm the one who needs to love me. If I don't, no natter how many people tell me they love me, if I don't love me, my mind, heart and soul won't believe any of it until I feel the love for myself.

So here I am. Not smiling. Not tilting my face in a photo. Living my fourth decade of life.

Loving myself. All of me. And this Valentine's Day, I encourage you to wrap yourself with love.

Do something for yourself this week. Pamper yourself how ever you want. Go out for a hike. Read a book. Go on a trip. Buy yourself flowers, candy, a gift - or don't.

But don't wait for someone else to show their love for you to realize, you are beautiful my friend. Inside and out.

Oh my word I’m sorry that happened to you! But im so happy to hear that you realize that your value and worth are not a result of other people’s opinions.
