Treat Yourself Like a Lover

If you had a lover in your life how would you dress? How would you take care of yourself? Where would you go? What would you do? Paint a picture of what life would be like and envision it!
Self-Care has got to be by far the most secret of weapons when starting a wellness journey.
When we become unhealthy or out of shape usually we are not feeling very well about ourselves or sometimes even life in general. It can show through our food choices, our appearance and our attitude. We may tend to over eat, slack on our appearances or even become depressed subconsciously.
When we find love in our life all of that seems to change. We may start working out or maybe dressing a bit cuter taking a little more time with makeup. We can become a joy to be around and seem to have a smile permanently glued to our vibrant faces!
Then what happens when that lover is gone… however it may be? Some of us go back to our old ways of self – loathing. #notagoodlookforadiva!
I know I have almost gotten my diva card pulled a couple of times in this vicious cycle and un-diva like behavior. Health is for yourself. We have to be selfish about it. If we do not have our health we have nothing to offer ourselves or anyone else for that matter. When we do not have our health we do not have our life, not in a physical sense but the quality of our life.
Out of frustration, I started to think about this cycle and learned I don’t need anyone to validate me. I didn’t need anyone to feel good about myself and I certainly did not need anyone to dress cute for. What I have learned when I find myself in these slumps the best way to pull out of it is self-care.
When I take better care of myself, I go back to doing the things that I love, I take pride in my appearance, and change my approach to life situations….. magic seems to happen.
Treat yourself like a lover. How are you going to dress, where are you going to go, who will you go see, what things will you do? What foods will you eat, where will you go work out at? How will life look for you treating yourself? Vision it.
When we truly love ourselves is when we discover our value and attract what we deserve in our lives and have the ability to share our gifts with the world!
Be Healthy! Be Fabulous!
