Now I know Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about feeling the love with that special someone in your life, but why can’t that special someone be yourself???  We spend so many of our days caring for and loving other people, isn’t it only fair we take some time to care for and love ourselves?

While I have never been much of a fan of the overly commercialized holiday we call Valentine’s Day, I can use it as an excuse to show myself some love, whether that’s treating myself to a spa day or squeezing in that extra workout to ward off any holiday binge eating 😉  So my message is short and simple….If you’re not feeling the love today, don’t feel bad, in fact, feel great, and use it as an excuse to love yourself more and do more to put yourself at the center of your life…when you do, it can pay bigger dividends than showing love to anyone else can.

I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying, “If you can’t love yourself, how can you love another person?”  This has always rung really true for me.  When I am happy and content with myself I am much more capable of sharing that love with others.  So this Valentine’s day, make a pact to love yourself more, after all, you deserve it!

Happy Valentine’s Day to All the Strong and Beautiful Women in my life!!! (you know who you are!)
