| Love yourself first |

Dear Noteblair,

Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope your day is full of LOVE & HAPPINESS ♥

Not only today but everyday should be a celebration of love. Not only loving your other half or your family & friends but to love yourself. Self care & self love is such an importation topic that gets lost in our life. I myself struggled with it for years and years. Well I’m here to tell you, you are loved!

“To be beautiful means to be yourself.You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. .”
 -Thich Nhat Hanh, The Art of Power

In today’s society it is so easy to forget who we are and what qualities do we have. We try so hard to fit in and to be accepted by others that we forget to even love or accept ourselves. we all have been there!
I wanted to write this post to share few small yet effective steps that helped me to love myself more & accept me no mater of other approval! Selfcare is not selfish & we all deserve to the same love that we try so hard to give others.

Start your day with love not technology
We are all guilty of this. For years and years as soon as I opened my eyes I check my social, emails &… It is such a beautiful thing to wake up not check your phone and start on your morning routine. Social media can wait!
start your morning right, drink your coffee in peace, read a book, write in your journal, do your skincare, listen to a motivation podcast. Do whatever that makes you feel GOOD!

Talk to yourself like you would talk to others
I recently heard this sentence listening to a podcast. Imagine a friend making a mistake in their life, how would you talk to them? talk the same way with yourself. Just because it is you, you don’t have to be harsh. you will sit there an listen to your friend and try to help them solve it. why not help yourself? Treat yourself how you would treat others, with love, respect and attention.

You do you
Your first responsibility as a human is to take care of yourself first. If your are not happy how are you going to make someone else happy? We all have been there, not everyone will see your vision, not everyone will understand or support you! But you do you & stay in your own lane.

Practice gratitude
Appreciate all that you have, be thankful of your beauty, your talent, your heart & the live you have. never forget there are always people that wish to have something that you have.

Think positive
What you think you become! It is that simple. A positive mind will always have a positive outcome.

Take responsibility
It is one of the hardest things to do…It is hard to admit you made a mistake, it is hard to take responsibility & it is hard to deal with the truth! But you know what is harder? making the same mistake over and over again. We are all scared because we don’t want to deal with the circumstances of our mistakes. But the sooner you accept it, the sooner you can help yourself to solve it and move on! being in dark area for long is not going to solve anything.

Be honest with yourself
Emotions, We all have them! Don’t try to cover up the unpleasant feelings with something that will never fix it. Be honest with yourself, you are allowed to feel sad or unhappy! it happens to the best of us! Life is not this picture perfect scenario! allow yourself to feel the pain & then decide you want to do better to not feel that. Lear from your pains.

Patient Patinet Patient!
You need a lot of this! With a project that you are working on, for the goal that you have, for the dreams you are building! Be patient. nothing will happen overnight. hustle takes time. Focus on your goal and try to see the end result! the process is always bumpy but giving up is not an option!

Forgive yourself
We all make mistakes. Big or small….accept your mistakes, learn from them & move on! Staying in a misery will never reflect positively in your life! Learning from it will.

Learn to have FUN
You deserve to have the best time of your life! We all have a different explanation of what fun is! a night in with a good movie and wine sounds perfection to me! but it might not be your cup of tea! Find what is fun for you and do more and more of it! Always make time on DAILY to do things that you enjoy.Either that’s taking a walk or reading or listening to music…

I really hope this helps you in one way or another to love yourself & value yourself more!
I LOVE YOU! For all your support & for continuously motivating me to do more of what I love!

Love
-Blair
