This is a term that I have been throwing around for about 2 years now. I have been relentless in my journey for it, not just for myself, but for other women too.
I know that self-love can seem like a unicorn, you’ve heard about it, it sounds so pretty and fun, but it’s probably not a real thing.
It’s real babe. You can love and appreciate and cherish all the parts of yourself.
Two years ago I wanted to take my babies to the mall to go shopping just for me. As I was getting ready I was paralyzed with fear that I couldn’t take both kids out by myself. I ALMOST didn’t go. You can watch more here. Have you been here too? You had this idea to do something that was just for you, maybe get your nails done, maybe take a lonnnnng, hot bath, and then you were held back my fear or guilt.
Tell me if these sounds familiar:
“I would but I need to get feed the kids, give them a bath, AND put them to bed.”
“I’d love to but I have no one to watch the kids.”
“That would be so awesome, but our car’s check engine light just came on so I’ve got to save my money for that.”
“I wish I could, but I just don’t think I’ll have the time in my schedule between work and home.”
I was tired of the critic in my head, I was tired of telling myself I wasn’t doing enough, I was tired of putting myself last on the list every day. I wanted to be more kind to myself, I wanted to cut myself some slack, I wanted to give myself the same love that I gave to my family.
We did it, I bought things just for myself, it wasn’t an easy day by any means, but it helped to change my thinking. That day I made the decision to try to do more things that were just for me, my self-love journey was born. I became a liiiiittle obsessed with treating myself better and then helping other women do the same!
