Yes, Valentine’s Day may be over and done with and you’re probably sick of the word ‘love’, but back up for a sec now. It’s time to really focus on you and only you. It’s time to learn to love the person that you are. Don’t get me wrong, having that special someone in your life to love is an awesome thing, but it’s important that you’re 100% confident with yourself and oozing with positive vibes!
So you’re ready to love yourself? It’s simple and so amazing for your well-being. After you read this, hopefully you’ll feel inspired to go out there and do great things because why the hell not?
1. Stop comparing yourself to other people. You’re your own original person and that’s what makes you, you. That persons’ Instagram you keep lurking because you think they have a ‘perfect’ life – they’re entire life isn’t revealed through a few little square photos, so it’s no use putting yourself down because you think you’re not living life to the fullest because everyone their has ups and downs (yes, even the Kardashian’s and the Jenner’s).
2. Learn to have a laugh at yourself every once in a while and have fun while doing it. Don’t you want to look back at your life when you’re 90 and think ‘That was such a laugh’?
3. It’s 2015 and unfortunately, there are still judgmental pricks that exist. But, a legend by the name of Rihanna once said “Don’t let the bastards get you down.” Take that advice and realize the beauty of your body – from the spots on your face to the stretchmarks on your thighs, they’re imperfections that should be embraced and loved. They’re a sign that you are an imperfect human and that you’re totally okay with that.
4. Take a moment to appreciate life. Yours in particular. Think about how much you’ve already accomplished so far and think to yourself “Damn, I’m a bad ass bitch”. Having the right attitude is key to fully understanding how to love yourself, so be inspired and do more awesome shit that you can be proud of.
So, now it’s your turn to take action. Have you told yourself how beautiful you are today?
