Today is Valentine’s Day and all around me I can see hearts and flowers and gifts and promotions to celebrate love. Pictures of happy couples and lovers everywhere.
If you’re in a relationship the pressure is high and if you’re single and happy, I guess you hate all that stuff. The time where you can find chocolate truffles and lots of bubbly and wine on offer for good prices. Stay away from flowers, they are really expensive now. Okay, just kidding. this whole marketing ploy and all these happy couples are so annoying.
And it does not happen like this in real life anyway.
First and most important (does not matter if you are in a relation ship or single) : love yourself.
Take good care of your body, nurture yourself and be creative. Before you take care of your partner, your children, maybe your elderly parents – make sure you have taken care of your own needs. Yes, I know, with a baby this is not possible, but later in life it is.
Show yourself this love by treating yourself well and be kind to yourself.
Women are still struggling to do this, they still feel guilty. We all have been taught to put ourselves last. Today and on many other days hopefully – love yourself first. Enjoy. Happy Valentine!
