Yay! It’s February – the month of love 😉 When you read that, what pops into your mind? images of chocolate hearts? Champagne? Lingerie? Over-priced cards and dinners out?
Sure all of those things are what February and Valentine’s day can be about, but let me take a minute to propose to you a new idea:
Let’s make February the month of SELF love.
When I read through twitter and even the Mamavation Monday posts I see consistent themes:
- exercise as punishment for eating a cookie
- lack of confidence
I’m not seeing very much self-love.
So this month, I’d like you to stop and think about your internal, and even external dialogue. I want you to try and make this the month of SELF love.
To start the month off I want you to either write on your blog, or share in the comments, one thing you love about yourself.
Come on – you can do it! I’ll even go first – I love myself because….
I have a strong healthy body that has given me THREE beautiful daughters. My stretch marks and muffin-top are there to tell everyone that I’m strong and have endured over 2 years of pregnancy!
Before you can love others, you need to unconditionally love and accept yourself. By accepting yourself, your simple presence can make others happy. Making others happy is the greatest way to show your friends, family and even complete strangers that you love them.
Because this month is the month of SELF love, I’m going to kick start it with a series of guest posts from several wonderful, confident women who will share with you how they’ve journeyed from self-loathing to self-love. I’ll start off the series tomorrow with m story. We will share with you how we show ourselves love everyday
