So tomorrow is Valentine’s day, and as a blogger I’m probably socially obliged to do a V-day outfit and whatnot, but ain’t nobody got time for that! Okay, most people do, but I’m going to be superbusy tomorrow so that’s not happening :(.
Anyway, it got me thinking about love… I have an amazing boyfriend who I love very much, but I think it’s also really important to take the time to say: I love me. Somehow (and I doubt I’m the only one in this) it can be easier to love someone else than to love yourself, but that’s so wrong on so many levels. It’s also weird how compiling this list made me feel arrogant: as if it’s somehow completely inappropriate to say nice things about yourself. Weird. Here’s the perfect way to deal with that feeling:
repeat it until you believe it :)
Okay, so 10 things I love about myself:
I see beauty in things others find ugly, or scary, orunimportant
I have the craziest, most awesome imagination ever
My ass. Yup. I can completely lose myself in a book. And afterwards, the world is never ever the same again, but that’s okay I sing to myself, in public, out loud, because it makes me happy, and I’m not ashamed.
I may not be really great at one thing, but I do well in a lot of different things
I’m strong and bendy
I am passionate and loyal and forgiving and kind and some people don’t deserve that, but I won’t let them change me
I like to pretend my owl from Hogwarts simply got lost
I’ve never had any dance training, but secretly I think I’m an amazing dancer
I know most of you are going to be really busy snuggling with your loved one (or binge-eating on chocolate), but if you have some minutes ( okay, or an hour… coming up with a list is surprisingly hard! all the more reason to do it!) to spare: why not take the time to make a little list like this? I’d love to hear yours!
