How to love yourself!

Alright, as we all know Valentines Day is upon us! With that said, I’m sure I invoked one of three emotions in you: excitement, dread, or you are pointedly ignoring me. No matter what reaction you have to the impending holiday I want you to keep one thing in mind: Love yourself first. Let repeat that: LOVE YOURSELF FIRST.     No matter what your plans are on Valentines day, make sure to give yourself some love, too. I don’t see Valentine’s day with the gray tinted lenses so many people do – and I never have. I see it…
