By now it’s probably no surprise that I love any excuse to celebrate… That means birthdays, achievements, holidays, and yes, even Valentine’s Day, regardless of relationship status. I know a lot of people have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day, but I urge you to at the very least do something nice for yourself. It could be as simple as writing a list of all the things you love about YOU! Cheesy, I know, but sometimes we really need to just take a second to appreciate all of the things we have achieved and all of the things we do like about ourselves; too often we get sucked into a whirlpool of disappointment and negativity. So, to inspire you, today I rounded up some of my favorite and nontraditional self-love related quotes to help you start brainstorming! Oh, and of course, I’m sharing a glitzy+girly outfit as well.
“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.”
“I will not be another flower, picked for my beauty and left to die. I will be wild, difficult to find, and impossible to forget.”
-Erin Van Vuren
“I know what I bring to the table… So trust me when I say I’m not afraid to eat alone.”
“I am thankful to all those who said No. Because of them, I did it myself.”
“We get so worried about being ‘pretty’. Let’s be pretty kind, pretty funny, pretty smart, pretty strong.”
“We can be so desperate for love that we forget where we can always find it; within.”
“I’m not weird. I’m limited edition.”
“You are not fat. You have fat. You also have fingernails but you are not fingernails.”
“Talk to yourself like someone you love.”
“You have to be odd to be number one.”
“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”
I hope you found at least one quote here that spoke to you in some way. And to check out even more of my favorite words to live by, you can follow me on Pinterest! I know some of these quotes have definitely hit home for me, as I haven’t been the most loving or forgiving to myself lately. Let’s channel all the positive vibes as we approach Valentine’s Day and be sure to take a little time to celebrate ourselves. We deserve it!
Also, how fun is this rose gold themed, shimmery outfit?! I love that the flamingo shaped sequins on my cardigan match the sequins of my blouse almost perfectly. Would be so cute for V-Day – dinner with the girls OR a date night OR a personal night. ‘Cause after all, we shouldn’t be afraid to eat alone (wink wink).
