I Heart Me Day

I HEART Me DayFrom the archives…Feeling pissed about Cupid this year?  It’s difficult after separation to feel inspired about a day dedicated to love when you feel your heart is broken.  But in order to mend your heart, you have to start loving yourself.

In our marriages we often put ourselves last.  We even learn to stop loving ourselves.  How do we undo this?  We begin by treating ourselves right.  Turn Valentine’s Day into I HEART Me Day.  How do we celebrate I HEART Me day?  Make a list of your favorite things to do, eat, see, music and people.  Make a plan to include in your day as many of those things as possible.  Do you love to watch movies, go to the spa, have coffee with a friend, enjoy a special bottle of wine, have lunch with your kids, watch a sunset?

Don’t forget to include your favorite foods too.  Go to the best bakery in town and get your favorite dessert and have it all to yourself.  You will feel cheered after spending a day doing exactly what YOU want.

Be selfish, self centered, spoiled and indulgent.  All those things we’re taught are ‘bad’.  In fact, that’s an even better word.  Be bad today.  Really, really bad and enjoy every minute of it.  I’d like to leave you with this thought; LOVE isn’t always found in the traditional “couples” sense of the word.

Look for love in other places in your life and you will be surprised at what you find.  Here are some visuals to start celebrating I HEART me day right now:

If this tree grew in your yard you’d probably smile everyday.

Just like you, there is beauty and mystery in nature

Okay, so I added a little historical romance.

I Heart Me

Do you love the beach?  You don’t need the big scarf and black dress to enjoy a walk.

Too bad it doesn’t stay this sweet and innocent.

I HEART Me Day

Is there any greater love?

Just enjoying a drink with a friend will pick up your mood.

Whatever you decide to do for Valentine’s, enjoy it to the max.  Turn Cupid on his head and make it an ” I HEART me” day!

Do you have some new ideas to make Valentine’s into “I HEART me” Day?  I would love to hear from you.

Leave a comment, I LOVE ’em!

  1. This was so awesome and I think a husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend should treat EVERY day as Valentine’s Day. That picture of the girl on the beach is amazing. But, you know which one was my fav (the doggie/kitty)! Happy V-Day to you and your honey today, Lisa! 🙂

  2. Hi Lisa,

    That was lovely indeed 🙂

    Yes, you need to start loving yourself before you love others, and your post is a perfect reminder of that. Little things matter, and if you can spend time doing them for yourself for a change, rather than for others, you’d fall in love with yourself all over again.

    Well, I spent a quiet little time with my hubby because we needed that time together – those moments matter too 🙂

    Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend 🙂
