Three year’s ago, I spent this day crying in a place of despair, emptiness and loneliness. I was living in the fear that I will be alone for the rest of my life.
Two year’s ago, life was tad different after that crying spell. I made the conscious commitment of finding what I wanted, tapping into my desires, really exploring who I am. At that point, I risked spending 10k in my own personal development by going back to school. Over that year I faced fears such as doing burlesque, establishing loving relationships. I started to love myself silly. Laughter and acceptance were now part of my everyday life.
A year ago, things got real! I grew up. My relationships with others shifted. Most importantly my relationship with myself became a priority in my life.
On this day, I find myself in a place of loving kindness with my soul. Accepting that I am right at the place where I need to be.
Here are my top 3 things to do for this V-Day!
1. Can you love yourself silly?
Perhaps go for a funny movie or have a dance break. Allow yourself to play and be silly for a change.
2. Speak up your mind!Sometimes we hold on anger, guilt and other feelings because we are afraid to speak up. For today I choose to practice being honest despite feeling discomfort.
3. Watch Self-Love Tour!!! My friends Ali Leipzig and Natalie Berthold have put together an amazing series that is all about Self-Love!
