Love yo-beautiful-self! Yep, you need to love yourself too. Fact. In fact self-love should be your number one priority. You need to love yourself in order to except love from others. You can’t blame yourself every time something goes wrong, you can’t cringe every time you look in the mirror because YOU’RE HUMAN and humans makes mistakes, humans are flawed and guess what, that’s OK! It’s ok to make mistakes because mistakes either redirect us to a better path or teach us something! It’s COMPLETELY and UTTERLY ok to have flaws because they are what make you be-YOU-tiful – plus who’d like to look like Barbie and Ken all the time! Not me! Because they may be fantastic but their also plastic and lifeless and that’s boring and unflattering!

This blog post is reminder to myself first and foremost because loving yourself isn’t easy – but that’s what makes it so valuable and crucial. It takes time, patience and reminding yourself everyday how awesome you are and that you are here to gift the world your awesomeness! Yes you read that right! The world NEEDS you and LOVES you, so go on a love yoself!

Here are three ways to love yourself – of course self love can be in any shape or form but here are three things I do:

  1. Positive Comebacks

Whenever you say something negative about yourself combat self-hate by saying at least two positive things about yourself (emphasis on the words ‘at least’ because…come on! We all have more than two positive things about ourselves!).

  1. Surround Yourself with People who Appreciate You

Be around people who understand how precious you are to the world. People who understand you are going to make the world a better place. Who understand that the world desperately needs you! Those who undervalue you have no place in your life. Believe me toxic people are the death of happiness, THE DEATH!

  1. Daily Affirmations

Everyday write positive affirmations in your journal. Or say them out aloud on you way to university/work, whilst you’re running errands – make time to love yourself, you deserve it.

…and remember this is gonna be a good life! 😀
