Happy Valentine’s Day, lovelies! While I like the romantic idea of today, I don’t buy into all the commercial crap that surrounds Valentine’s Day. Therefore, I started participating in Snackiepoo‘s Self-Love Day last year.
Four years ago, she declared that Valentine’s Day should officially be also known as Self-Love Day and I digg it. I think it’s a good time to remind ourselves about what we’re worth to… yes, ourselves. Today is the day that we post a little something that we like about ourselves and ask others to reply with the same!
No more “how much do I love thees”… but rather ask yourself the question, “how much do I love ME?” Even if you have a special someone, take the time to think about yourself today. List your good qualities, have some positive perspective on who you are and treat yourself better than you ever have.
Here’s how the whole thing works:
1.) You’re gonna grab yourself a banner. If you don’t like the one I’ve used in this post, you can find another one here.
2.) You’re gonna post that banner and then tell us all something that you really like
love about yourself (thus, the “self-love” portion of our program).
3.) Ask or beg your readers to post one thing that they too love about you!!! If your blog friends are nice, you shouldn’t have to beg…much.
4.) Enjoy yourself and spread the love by doing this on your blog!
So, here’s one thing I like about myself right now… I (would like to think of myself that I) am a thoughtful person. I try to do little things to brighten your day – write you notes/emails, buy you a special little gift, give you a call, ask how things are going in your life. I make it a point to not forget your birthday (even if you have forgotten mine in the past). I send out little note-cards, just because. I’ll give out a compliment, not because I’d like to get one in return, but because I genuinely mean it. I’ll listen, if you need to vent. Whatever I can do to make your day a little better, I am here to do it.
Now it’s your turn: tell me what you like about me (this is the one time per year I can ask this without feeling too desperate, so comment away!). And also let me know what you like about yourself, either in your comment or by posting this on your own blog! I’d love to come over and let you know what I like about you!
Spread the love!
