I hope everyone is having a Happy Valentine’s Day, even if you are single or your love is not around. February 14th is not just a day to buy flowers, candy, and/or cards it is also a day you can celebrate yourself. Lately, I have not been celebrating my inner and outer beauty. I would look around at other women who seemed to have it together, hair and nails done, great outfit, and I barely have time to put on lip gloss. As women, we are not taught to appreciate another’s beauty because we feel it will take away from ours. This is why we need a day to celebrate ourselves.
That is why Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity for that. Celebrate your achievements, analyze your failures, reflect on your goals. Take a day to treat yourself to a great meal, spa, Netflix, or whatever makes your heart content. Today is also a day to practice gratitude. Let us all be grateful for our inner and outer beauty, that uniqueness that makes each one of us special.
