…not in the way JBiebs meant it, but in the way our OG favorite blogger Carrie Bradshaw meant it (and if you don’t get this reference reevaluate your life).
CB once told us “don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first,” and she’s right.
We spend so much time working to impress others with what we wear, how we act, or how we look in a bikini, but we forget to impress ourselves, forget to make ourselves happy. And why? Why do we take the backseat to ourselves? We shouldn’t have to keep reminding ourselves that someone would be lucky to date us, or that we are pretty enough, or smart enough. We are more than all that. We are more than good enough. We are intelligent, beautiful, and kind, and we need to remember to treat ourselves that way.
So here is a friendly reminder from me: go and love yourself.
You deserve it. Go for the whipped cream on the frap if you’re craving it; it won’t ruin your life. Drag yourself to the gym FOR YOU- not for anyone else. Eliminate the toxic (not the Britney Spears kind of Toxic) people from your life; you don’t need them, and that’s okay. Keep people around who bring you up. Trust your instincts, stay confident, and remember that you are enough just as you are.
