Valentine's Day is probably one of my least favorite holidays. Partially because I'm bitter and partially because I just think it's flat out dumb. All the stress that surrounds Valentine's Day, for both those in a relationship and those who are single, just isn't worth it. So instead of being a negative Nancy about the whole thing, I realized I don't have to celebrate someone else on Valentine's Day, I can just celebrate me.
In Episode 18 (Valentine's Day Woes) I challenged you to do something for yourself on Valentine's Day. It's amazing to see people giving to others and reaching out to those who need a "pick me up," but those same people often forget to do something for their own sanity. Let's face it, we're all about a centimeter away from a full blown 2007 Britney Spears breakdown. Life can get hectic and though it may be hard to take time away for you, it's necessary.
So I took my own challenge and now I'm about to share with you what I decided to do for my Self Love Valentine's Day. I decided to chill the f*ck out. I'm the kind of person who is constantly on the go. I got a lot of sh*t to do and not nearly enough time to do it all, which is a recipe for disaster if I don't remind myself to just chill every once in a while. I worked from home that day and vowed to re-f*cking-lax when I got off the clock. I watched "Titanic" twice (what can I say... I'm a sucker for young Leonardo DiCaprio-- don't judge me). Then I took a GLORIOUS nap. I don't think there are the proper words to describe how amazing that nap was. I ate some sushi and did a face peel. I have never tried a face peel before and it changed my whole life. Seriously... how have I not done that before? And to finish the night off, I filled an online shopping cart with new clothes... even though that probably wasn't the best idea for my already depressing bank account. #BrokeBitchProblems But f*ck it, it's Self Love Valentine's Day! I deserve a little somethin' somethin'. I even got to read some of my new book, "Get Your Sh*t Together" by Sarah Knight. It's taken me over a month to get halfway through because well... I don't have my sh*t together and I'm a busy motherf*cker.
Now, I know that may not sound like the "best" Valentine's Day, but it was 100 percent what I needed. I don't regret a second of it.
I hope you all got the chance to do something for you this year. You deserve it ya hot mess!
