Love yourself first this Valentine’s Day

on February 13, 2014

Made-up or not, Valentine’s Day is a day meant to be spent smothering each other with love (including yourself).

Whether you’re single or happily taken, take this V-Day to treat yourself to the best kind of love – self-love.

If you’re taken:

To truly accept someone’s love, you must accept yours first. If you don’t, you run the risk of dividing your attention between your own insecurities and your significant other.  Loving who you are will allow you to focus on your relationship, and what you and your partner need. It wouldn’t be fair to either of you otherwise.

If you’re spending Valentine’s Day with your boyfriend or girlfriend, take some time beforehand for yourself. Transform your pre-date-getting-ready-ritual into a lavish, relaxing pampering session.  Spend a day trying on new outfits and find the perfect one for your date.  Buy some new lip gloss, spend extra time on your hair, or splurge on some fancy body soap for a luxuriously long bubble bath.  Look good, feel good.

Whatever you do, do it for yourself.

If you’re single:

Gather your fellow single friends and all your favorite things. Spend the night at home enjoying each other’s company, laughing, and loving each other. Celebrate being single, and the fact that you don’t have to share a side of your bed with anyone else tonight.

If staying in isn’t your thing, dress up and go out anyways. You don’t need be in a relationship to celebrate Valentine’s Day and have a good time.

Celebrate love instead.
