FALL in Love Again

It’s Time to FALL In Love Again

The thought of being in love has the ability to create an inner peace and joy that can be indescribable. The butterflies, the anticipation of seeing that person’s face, holding their hands and the contentment of being in their embrace, it is like being inside a Hallmark card. Love is so powerful that many women search all their lives to find true love. Being in love is an amazing feeling, but in the process of finding or being in love, women often forget to love one of the most valuable people in their lives. They forget to love themselves!

Therefore this fall, it is my desire to help you fall in love with yourself again. In order to accomplish this, allow me to provide you with five tips. Are you ready? Here we go!

Five Tips to FALL In Love With Yourself Again

1). Reconnect with What You Enjoy: Women spend a lot of time and energy devoted to loving and taking care of others that we forget to do things we love for ourselves. To change this, make a list of things you love and haven’t done in a while. Once you’ve completed your list, set a plan of action and dates to go back to what you love. For instance, if you love salsa dancing and haven’t salsa danced in a while, grab a few of your friends and sign up for some salsa lessons.

2). Say Something Nice: Women are amazing cheerleaders for their family and friends, but seldom do they cheer for themselves. Therefore every morning you awake, look in the mirror and say something nice about yourself. You’re so worth it!

3). Make Time for Yourself: Exercise is a great way to relieve stress and connect with your body. If you look at exercise as a chore, change your mindset and begin to look at exercise as a love language. Use exercise to benefit yourself not to punish yourself or to lose weight.  Schedule at least 3 days per week for at least 30 minutes. If you can’t do 30 minutes of exercise in one setting, split your day into two fifteen minute workout sessions. 

4). Laugh Out Loud: Life is a precious gift and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Cut yourself some slack and the next time something doesn’t go your way and don’t be too hard on yourself.  Love yourself enough to laugh about the situation and keep living life!

5). Stop Comparing Yourself: On a daily basis women are bombarded with subliminal messages that taunt a fictional image of bodily perfection and beauty. As a result, it is easy to compare yourself to other women. This can be very damaging to a woman’s self-esteem. Therefore the next time you find yourself comparing yourself to another woman, be mindful and remind yourself of how amazing you are. Another woman’s beauty doesn’t dismiss your beauty. Every woman is amazing. She just has to realize it!

As the leaves are changing and the weather is getting colder, it is my hope this fall season you will fall in love with yourself again. By doing this, you will feel re-energized, refocused and rejuvenated with life. At all times remember, one must first love themselves before they ever truly love someone else.
