Love Yourself!

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Happy Valentine's Day, guys! C and I never do anything much for this holiday, mostly because he's not much of a "holiday" person in the first place, and Christmas + my birthday all being within a month really taps him out as far as ideas on what to do with/for me or things to get me.

Honestly, my birthday was 2 weeks ago and I got everything I needed/wanted except my HRM. I might go out and buy that for myself tonight - we have the money now that our income tax returns are back, and C was looking for something to do tonight anyway. Maybe we'll go buy Colonial Marines for him and the HRM for me.

And that, my loves, is the point of today's blog. Don't wait for someone else to show you their love today. While that's beautiful and important, it's not everything. The most important thing you can do today is love yourself. Whether you're married, coupled, divorced, widowed, single or dating the field - love yourself.

Do something today to remind yourself how AWESOME you are. Do something to remind yourself how AMAZING you look. Do something to remind yourself how IMPORTANT you are. Because, no matter who you are, that's the truth.

There's only one you.
Appreciate that!

    I am with Erin, giving flowers "just because" is much more fun than having to do it for a day. But Emma has an excellent point in the blog, we should love ourselves! Thanks for saying it! Love the T-Rex!

    We're with you -- Valentine's Day on the day itself. Sometimes we go out to dinner a week later, but since we hardly ever go out to eat, it's a minor splurge! I'm definitely not of the gimme-chocolates-and-flowers variety. Flowers are nice, but as I've told Andy, I'd much rather he give me flowers on a random day "just because" than to feel like he needs to give them to me on Valentine's Day!

    Happy Valentine's Day!! We don't really do much either, we did a cheap date night on Tuesday and I made pastries with heart shaped strawberries on them, that about sums it up for us over here!

    Fantastic T-Rex emoticon
