I think the journey of learning to love ourselves is one of the most important journeys we can take in our lifetime, yet it is a journey that I am just starting now. During my 26 years, I’ve always focused on the negative, the things I’d rather change about myself. I’ve never felt truly happy in my body and genuinely loved myself. It is time for that to change though! It is time to put myself first and learn to appreciate myself more!
Self care is such a vital part to self love. My only version of self care is pampering myself to regular nail appointments and the occasional massage. If we don’t regularly show up for ourselves and make sure we are complete on our own, we can’t expect others to show up for us either. Like the saying goes, you have to take care of yourself before you can take care of other people.
My purpose for this blog is to help keep myself accountable, to share the journey of a young woman learning to love herself and make herself a priority for the first time. On my journey, I plan to do my digging and find ways to practice better self care, learn to love myself and make myself a priority. I’ll be sharing all of this information here! I truly do believe that when women stand together and support each other, that magical things can happen. I hope for this blog to be a place you can come to feel supported, loved and feel like others understand what you’re going through.
Let’s start our journey of learning to love ourselves together. What is one of your main goals when it comes to learning to love yourself? What are you hoping to achieve?
My goal is to feel proud of my body and all the things it can do, while also learning to take care of it better and be easier on myself. I want to focus on giving it the nutrients it deserves and getting in more activity. I want to spend more time doing things that make me feel good and bring me joy in my life. It is not selfish to put yourself first sometimes and to make time for the things you love. It is absolutely necessary on the journey to self love!
Thank you for being a part of my own journey to self love and for the support. I look forward to sharing this life long journey with all of you.
