Love, that four letter word that means different things to different people. For me, love is a verb; Valentine’s Day is not just for couples it may have been marketed and commercialized as such and some may find themselves more lonely than ever if they’re no significant other to send you roses and or chocolate.
Get your own roses and chocolate. No it’s not pathetic or conceited. Before you can love anyone else you have to first love you. It’s perfectly fine to treat yourself how you want to be treated eventually if Mr or Mrs Right were to come along.
Virtual Party: Call the girlfriends and have that kareoke party sing your hearts out and just have fun. It’s better than sitting at home feeling lonely and or sorry for yourself.
Send Gifts : If you have a favorite charity why not send a love token. You can also send a love gift to a children’s home or the Cancer ward at St. Jude’s. Whatever you can put a smile on someone’s face it will make you feel better.
Self Care: A quiet evening at home,music ,wine and or your favorite movie snuggle up and relax. Give yourself a Mani and pedi self care is the best form of I love you. Gents don’t feel left out get yourself that PS5 , golf clubs that Car whatever it is that you want and able to afford. Spoil yourself. You are your first priority.
Don’t let coupled up social media make you feel less than. I’ve been doing the buying myself a gift from I was single.
A few years ago, I went to a woman’s conference.This was my first time attending and it was hosting its second staging. A very good friend of mine went to the first and told me how awesome, it was and no matter what I just couldn’t miss the second.
I was excited I wanted to experience this conference my friend made it seem as if it transformed her life. There were speakers from various backgrounds, judges, entrepreneurs, bankers very powerful and esteemed women of society. I thought to myself how could these women relate to me? I listened to them took notes until this Marketing executive came on the stage. Her topic “I AM”.
Two words, that I’ve never thought so much about resonated with me and the audience who was moved by her story.
Your I AM is very powerful, those two words can either make you or break you. 2020 was rough, many people did not make it thankfully you’re here. I AM two words that can shape your reality, based on what words you place after it. If you want to achieve anything in life you have to affirm yourself. You are the most important factor in the equation. For you to get up out of bed, you first have to decide whether or not you want to get out of bed. So too, with anything else that you want to achieve this year. You have to decide.
When you get up in the morning, after you’ve had your devotions if you’re a religious person, yoga whatever you do to relax and be at peace with yourself you need to affirm yourself. Record yourself if that’s easier for you to work with and play it while you’re preparing breakfast. What’s your I AM?
I AM strong
I Am loved
I Am Important
I Am Handsome
I Am Beautiful
I Am an overcomer
