Learning How to Love Yourself

Hey y’all and welcome back! So today i want to talk about loving yourself. I feel like it’s so easy to say but how many of us actually show love to ourselves? Or actually feel love for ourselves?

With me it took awhile to get to that point of “loving” myself for who i actually am. I remember looking at other women and thinking, “Dang she seems to have it all together and she looks great”. I wasn’t even thinking about what it took for her to get to that feeling she has now.

It took me years to figure out that I’m this bomb ass chick! I was searching in other people to find what makes me great when all it really took was for me to actually get to know myself. By getting to know myself, I’ve learned that I really like crafting. I like making shirts using my Cricut. I even made all 6 of my bridesmaids proposal boxes by myself. I’ve learned I love fashion and I’m really good and putting together outfits for myself and others.

I didn’t even know I could do these things until one day I realized I don’t have any hobbies! I kept thinking to myself “what do I like doing besides watching Netflix?”. I couldn’t even answer the question so that’s when I went on a hunt and found out my love for crafting, fashion, and beauty. I’m so glad I took time out to figure these things out.

I also took time to pamper myself which is something I slowly stopped doing. I would tell myself that I don’t have time to do pampering things because I had to go to bed to wake up for work the next morning. Then I realized that I stopped wearing makeup as often as I used to and I stopped dressing like myself and then eventually I stopped going out of the house. It didn’t even dawn on me that I was doing this until one day I looked at myself in the mirror and noticed a change. I mean don’t get me wrong I still felt confident in my “no make up” look but I wore the makeup (when I say makeup I mean lash extensions, lipstick, highlighter and maybe concealer) for me! I wore it because I liked the way I looked wearing it. So I went into my makeup bag and tried a lipstick color I don’t normally wear…red. I was a little skeptical at first but it grew on me and now I love it. I’m back to trying different face masks every week or so just to pamper myself. I’m slowly getting my groove back and I love it.

I started making more time for me and doing the things that I love to do. I feel more confident than ever. I try to maintain positivity and peace in everything I do. I hope this post inspires you to love yourself and stay true to you..
