Happy Valentines day!
I am not big on this holiday. I have always associated it with candy and flowers - things that do not last. I personally believe everyday should be about showing the people you love how much you love them - not just one day a year.
This year I am going to try something different...I am going to tell myself how much I love me....
We start out learning to love ourselves, and somewhere along the line - for some of us - that stops. It stopped for me in junior high when I got called "chunky" by one of my teachers. Not a good day.
It has pretty much continued off and on since then...I get in shape and I love myself....I let myself go and I hate my body and my weakness.
Well....today I say no more....I love my body - my legs for carrying me around everywhere, my arms for their ability to hug and pick up my grandchildren, my butt for the extra cushion it gives me on that hard bench in the park, my mind for the way it can motivate me. I will learn to love myself.
Have a Sparktastic Valentine's Day Friends!!!!!
