“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” — Buddha
I just LOVE Sundays! Every Sunday I try and spend the day to myself - doing what I want to do! I think its so important to have a day to yourself, to rest your mind ready for the week ahead.
Self love is so important and its taken me a while to get there, but now that I have i'm so happy in my self in my body and in my mind! Loving yourself takes time its a process and it begins when you realise that you are worth SO MUCHmore and you deserve all the happiness in the world!
I will be real with you, this time last year I was in a toxic relationship, getting out of that relationship was honestly the best thing that could have happened to me. Don't get me wrong it was so hard at first, you know that feeling of being on your own again after getting out of a relationship? feeling lost etc... It took time but i got there! Now I know my worth, I know what I want and i'm not going to settle for anything less. Its ok to be selfish, i've learnt that, its ok to put yourself and your dreams first.
I decided to share my tips on improving self-love:
Create a ritual
On Sundays I get up gym, food, nap and then relax in the night; do my hair, face etc and i love it! it might not be everyones idea of relaxing but its perfect for me.
Lounge about all day, watch that Netflix season, take a candlelit bubble bath, read a book - the possibilities are endless!
Find what works for you and what relaxes you, then do it every sunday!
STOP COMPARING yourself to others
We have all been there, scrolling through Social media seeing these beautiful girls and social media influencers and thinking I will never look like that! Which is true you wont, you look like you! & you are beautiful, unique and you need to remember that.
Take yourself out
Sounds silly right? but learning to enjoy you're own company is so important.
So many people can't go for food on their own, to the cinema etc
Once you learn to enjoy your own company nothing is off limits!!
Make a list
Make yourself a list - a goals list or a dreams list, whatever you want to call it. but make it all about you and what you want to achieve. Then work on that list and chase your dreams! Allow yourself to dream big.
