Self love is not going on a SPA day, a shopping spree day, nor that getaway weekend.
The word “self love” is getting thrown around a lot that it lost its meaning.
Here’s a quick psychology take: self love means fully accepting ourselves, even the embarrassing parts, and taking steps to make ourselves grow and happy.
It’s doing our jobs not to get things done. We’re doing it because we know it’s good for our being.
Self love is saying no when we don’t want to. Self love is getting up and doing the things we love. Self love takes us to places.
When a bad day comes, self love means asking ourselves what we need and actually do it, instead of going through the part where we screw up over and over again. It’s learning to forgive ourselves for something we did and didn’t did.
These are the small things we do for ourselves this month.
It’s sweet and it’s guilt-free. If you know us, you know we like things to be fuss-free. We don’t even go to grocery store and wait in line. We order our fresh fruits online via sayurbox.com.
We love great night outs, but there are some days when we don’t feel like it. Usually, we just wing it, but now, we say no and wear these cute sleepwears instead.
Watching To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 2
Nowadays, it’s rare to find non-cheesy romcoms. Well, we could predict the plot but the way they deliver it is pretty fresh. It’s adopted from a novel with the same title and the first movie is a hit, so you know it’s legit. This is the second sequel.
Btw, are you team Peter or team Josh?
