Valentines Day–A perfect time to love yourself
February 14th, marks the annual celebration of the St. Valentines Holiday. Apparently he was some martyr back during the Roman Empire. I really dont care and its not pertinent to the subject of this post I just felt like throwing it in there. As millions of America spend time with their significant others tomorrow, many others will be all alone curled up in their snuggies, watchhing the Notebook, chogging down ice cream, while crying their little hearts away. Other Americans will be trying to find love in a bar, and instead finding a painful yet curable venereal disease. However I digress, again.
If you find yourself all alone this Valentines Day, it is a perfect opportunity to love yourself, and get into the best physical condition that you can. I truly believe that if you love yourself you will take care of your body and stay in shape. When you take the time to invest in your well-being others will be more likely to take the time to invest in you. None of this Oprah Winfrey loving your curves and rolls nonsense. Love yourself for who you are but strive to be better.
Loving yourself starts with admitting you have a problem. No you don’t have a thyroid, problem and no you’re not big boned, you just lack discipline and focus. Learn to take the weight loss journey one day at a time, Rome wasnt built in a day and neither is a perfectly sculpted body. Start by planning out your meals, counting calories, becoming dedicated to working out frequently, and see if the pounds don’t fly off. So I encourage all of you looking to find love on Valentines Day to look inside and love yourself first, because only then will you be able to love yourself. Or at least that’s what I heard on an after school special.
As for me I will be spending my Valentines day with my boos Kerry Washington and Charlize Theron…
