To love yourself means to embrace your unique beauty and to celebrate the person you are working to become. Self-love is not a one-size-fits-all formula that fixes self-doubt overnight; rather, it is a tradition of recognizing your value.
International Women’s Day is March 8, and it is a great opportunity to celebrate your achievements on your self-love journey and to improve your self-image through small habits. By adopting these practices, we can learn to accept who we are as we continue to grow.
- Take time to care for yourself. Choose a self-care activity that brings you joy and take a few minutes a day to do something nice for yourself. Your choice doesn’t have to be indulgent but should serve as a simple reminder that you deserve to love yourself. Whether it’s physical (like taking a bubble bath or going for a jog) or mental (like mediating or writing in a journal), there are many things you can make a regular routine that will improve your well-being.
Practice self-affirmations. Shift the way you treat yourself and focus on using positive words and phrases. Remind yourself of your beauty by saying or thinking mantras like “I am worthy of love,” “I radiate happiness,” or “I carry strength and courage in me.” Be kind to yourself and allow yourself room to evolve while acknowledging your talents. Our line of
Affirmation Totes are a perfect way to visualize your new optimistic thinking.
- Understand that you are both a masterpiece and a work in progress. Making mistakes is an important part of life, and we must remember that our worth is not in being perfect. Oprah Winfrey once said, “A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.” Be proud that you have a willingness to learn from your failure and the strength to try again.
- Gift yourself with experiences. Fill the space you’ve given yourself to make improvements with opportunities that will challenge you. You can start by volunteering for a cause close to your heart or by teaching yourself a new skill; one day at a women’s shelter or an hour at a knitting class can boost your self-confidence and give you perspective.
- Form relationships in which you are appreciated and loved. You are not walking the path to self-love alone! Your friends and family often share the similar feelings and would love to be a support system on your journey. In our digital age, we can always find a helping hand online. At Cosmic Cherries, we are here for women from all walks of life to find a loving community.
Self-love is a journey that requires dedication, passion, and practice. Decide to find ways to love who you are each day and watch as your greatest self blossoms in your positivity. Always remember that you deserve your own vibrant love as much as anyone else.
