Valentine’s day: celebrating self-love as the ultimate romance

Have you ever thought about how special Valentine’s Day is? Most times, we think it’s all about sharing love with someone else, like family, friends, or a crush. But guess what? There’s someone in your life that you usually skip and deserves all the love and attention- you! We’re talking about celebrating self-love, which, between you and me, is like the ultimate kind of romance.

When we talk about love, we often forget to mention the person who deserves our love the most – ourselves. You see, loving ourselves is where all the magic starts. It’s like when you’re on an airplane, and they tell you to put your oxygen mask on first before helping others. We need to fill our own hearts with love first before we can truly share it with other people. So, this Valentine’s Day, why don’t we all try something a little different? Let’s make it all about celebrating how amazing we are on our own.

Self-love is really the best love. The better we are at loving ourselves, the better we get at loving everyone around us. It’s like practicing a superpower. But here’s the secret: it all starts with accepting who we are, flaws and all, and giving ourselves the kindness and care we need to heal and grow.

Now, you deserve to celebrate Valentine’s Day just as much as anyone else. And you can do that by doing things that will spark joy for you! Let’s start by doing something we think is important – telling ourselves just how much we love us. You can stand in front of a mirror, look into your eyes, and say all the things you love above yourself, you know the things you wish to hear from other people. As funny as it sounds. Trust me, it feels good.

And you can also get yourself a cute little gift? You deserve it. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Maybe it’s that book you’ve been wanting to read, or maybe a treat or meal you’ve been craving. Whatever it is, it’s a little way to say, “Hey, I appreciate you” to yourself.

Now, how would you describe your perfect date? Next, think about all the amazing people you’d want to go on this date with. Trash the list because the perfect person to take on your perfect date is you! Think about what would make you the happiest. Is it a cozy night in, watching your favorite movies? Or maybe a little adventure outside, exploring a place you love or have never been to before. The day is yours to enjoy, in whatever way feels right to you.

Valentine’s Day is a lovely reminder to show love and appreciation, not just to others, but to ourselves too. Let’s make it a day where we celebrate the love we have for ourselves because, honestly, it’s the most special kind of love there is. Remember, there’s no one else in the whole world quite like you, and that’s something truly worth celebrating.

You make this Valentine’s Day a memorable one- a day filled with self-love, acceptance, and a whole lot of fun. After all, the most important person in your life to love and cherish, now and always, is you.
