Why? Because you’re hella cute and totally charming, and you give THE BEST hugs. Seriously.
This post is going to chat about something that I’ve been working on for a few weeks now.
Let me preface this by saying that I’m in a committed relationship. I’ve been with my wife, Meg, for almost a full year of marriage. (Our 1 year is on January 13th! EeEEEEP!) In total our relationship has spanned almost 9 years. When the HELL did that happen??!
Uh, what was the point of that? Oh, yeah! I love Meg. I adore her!
However, I needed…something more. Something that she just couldn’t provide for me. Not another person, no, what I needed was to love myself and be happy with spending time with myself and just liking who I was as a person.
Most of my time is taken up trying to be a million different things for other people. A friend, a lover and wife, a sister, a daughter, a student, a coach…the list goes on and on.
I was getting so bogged down with being there for other people that I wasn’t there for myself and I was starting to dislike myself…a lot.
And I don’t know about you, but I HATE feeling like I hate myself. It’s a shitty-ass way to feel.
So, I started to date myself. You know all those cute little things you do for your significant other when you start dating? The cute texts throughout the day, the love notes, the little gifts to show you’re thinking about them, the planning out dates and getting all excited when thinking of spending time with them?
Yeah, all that, aimed right at this chick right here. I leave myself sticky notes telling me how cute I am, how brilliant I am, how my booty is AMAZZZING. I make sure to take myself out on a date once a week – just doing something by myself, for myself.
If I weren’t trying to declutter my home I’d be buying myself small little trinkets here and there because I’m worth it!
So, my plums, try dating yourself. Write yourself love notes in your journal, take yourself out on a date, buy the cute thing in the store. You’re worth it.
Let me know what nice things you’re going to do for yourself down below!
