Good Morning loves, Happy Friday!!!
Today is 1st of December . This is the beginning of new month,new things.. I would like to tell you the lessons I’ve learned last month (November 2017) November has been a great month to me in terms of my business and personal life . It gave me some clear picture of certain things which troubled me for quite sometime now . I’ve learned a very important life lesson in November . I thought lot of young mothers with toddlers need to know it. I would share it with you so that it will be of use to someone .
I’ve learned to be good to myself (learnt to celebrate myself ) . I’ve got some time off from my routine work . I used my thanksgiving holidays to pamper myself. Ha Ha Yes self – pampering is good . Treating yourself good should be the first mantra to all women/mother . I felt so relaxed and recharged .
Self-love is self-care , Caring yourself well when you get time . Create time for yourself . I have learned to enjoy treating myself . Life is too short to not to treat yourself ! Celebrate all small win . Remember , You are worth it and deserve it !
Love your curves! Embrace your body, your spirit and all that you are! I celebrate myself…💟💟💟 Learn to embrace your natural self
Nothing makes a woman more BEAUTIFUL than the BELIEF that she already is BEAUTIFUL .
Self respect, Self-worth and self-love all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value. – Rob Liano
As most of the Women thinks, Self-Love is not only exercising and working out and maintaining figure . A small act which keeps you relaxed and happy is self-care.Get a massage , Get a facial , Go to the local ice cream parlor and indulge in the an ice cream , Go for a new fabulous hair style , Go for a long walk, Meditate, Practice yoga , Eat your favorite food, Watch your favorite movie of your choice , Visit friends and family members , Dress up well and take a selfie , Play with your dog, Enjoy your ‘ME -Time’,Go shopping ( who would say no to shopping 🙂 ) buy your favorite nail polish or lipstick , Buy handbags, Buy the new pair of shoes you have been wanting, Read your favorite book , sleep and rest well and lot more .. Do more of things makes you happy and makes your soul shine .
There is nothing wrong with a constant need to do better- to grow, try new things, to learn and wanting to become a better person. But as you grow and learn, remember to stop once in a while and tell yourself that you’ve done a good job so far. Look at how far you’ve come, don’t be too hard on yourself. Loving yourself isn’t selfish. It’s not about conceit. It’s not about thinking you’re better than someone else. It is, however, a lot more than just “accepting” yourself.
This is what I did to pamper myself .(See pictures below)
1 . I made my hair red .. New-hairdo
See below , I had fun sharing pictures of my new hair style with my Facebook friends (their comments made me laugh Lol )
2. I cooked my favorite food .
I made my favorite, simple and easy onion garlic gray for lunch.
It’s so easy to prepare and tastes yummy with white rice.My Mom used to prepare it . (Feeling Nostalgic ) This is a Indian menu .
(Pictures from my Facebook post)
3 . I had my favorite dishes in Plantain leaf . It’s a nostalgic feeling having food in plantain leaf . ( lot of childhood memories , those days during festive season we used to have festive food (feasting ) in plantain leaf .
I’ve learned to love me more and more now.
It’s time to close one door to open the next… Continuously moving forward with confidence and pride in who you are and where you are in your journey! …
Wishing you a new month and beautiful day filled with laughter and abundant love!!!
When was the last time you treated yourself ? What did you do? Would love to see your comments .
Love Always , Devi Venkatesan
