Self Love: TREAT YO’SELF!

“Treat Yo Self!” 

Sometimes we get so busy with life and taking care of others that we forget about ourselves and doing things that make us happy. Make yourself a priority every once in a while. It’s not selfish, it’s NECESSARY!! 

“EAT THE CUPCAKE & DONUTS BOO!” 

So many people are hard on themselves about body image and following strict diets. Quick Reminder Though: Sexy is not a size, every calorie is not a war & your body is not a battleground. Your value is not measured in pounds. You are just as beautiful as any other person! So with that being said.. Relax & just eat the damn cupcake. It won’t hurt to have one every now and then!

“Be Kind To Yourself” 

Like seriously, you will never speak to anyone else as much as you speak to yourself in your own head. Self Encouragement is so important and sometimes very critical. This is both a form of self love & self care! I’ve learned that you can’t always depend on other people to be there & encourage you when you’re at your lowest. Most times, people don’t know all that you really go through or what daily battles you’re fighting.

Sometimes, you just have to encourage yourself! Sometimes you have to speak victory over yourself and your circumstances. There’s power in the words you speak. Keep good thoughts and a good spirit. The things you say and believe manifest quicker than you think! Pep talks are a great way to encourage yourself by the way.  Sometimes, I do it in front of a mirror and sometimes I do it while I’m driving.

“Girl, you’re beautiful. You’ve been through so much and because of it, you’re a stronger person! Thank God you don’t look like what you’ve been through!! You’re a great mommy and even though you don’t think you’re doing a good job today, your kids still think the world of you! To them, baby you hung the moon and because of that you have to keep pushing! You have a big heart and you’re real hustler with great ambitions & etc..”

I talk to myself all the time about everything and keep myself lifted as much as possible! Call me crazy if you want but it works and if you’ve never done this before you should definitely give it a try!!

“PROTECT YOUR PEACE!!” 

Protect your peace and I mean that! People will drive you crazy and literally stress you out if you let them. You can’t function properly when you’re stressed. You can’t be the parent, spouse, child, sibling, employee or friend you need to be when you’re under a lot of stress. You just can’t. Always remember to take care of yourself. It’s impossible to pour from an empty cup!

“STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS”

Listen, God didn’t ask you to be them. He asked you to be YOU! Stop comparing yourself to other people and what they have. What God has for you, will always be for you! Instead, learn how to cheer and be happy for other people in their winning season and have faith in the fact that when it’s your time to shine.. God got you!! 

If you show yourself love daily, then today just added a bonus baby!! Love on you til you’re filled. Don’t forget to like, share or subscribe if you enjoy this post or any of the other posts on my site!!

  1. I love it, love it, love it! You are so right. It was so on target and on point. I just shared this with someone else earlier and I’ll share it and speak the same over you: Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
    Philippians 2:3 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/php.2.3.KJV as my blog switches over today from happiness to self love, may we be reminded that this world always has us in a position of comparison. Let us be humble and focus on impressing the Most High. Have a blessed, accomplished day. I hope you enjoyed your snow day…i kind of missed at least seeing it. Blessings and peace!

      Thank you so much for dropping by to read !! XOXO!!

  2. Great word!! Usually we put ourselves on the back burner… totally guilty here. But it’s hard to take care of anyone else when we haven’t taken care of ourselves. ♥️

    1. Amen to that sister !! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I’ve done that before too .. actually just a month or two ago and I was instantly reminded of how important boundaries are!!
      Thanks for reading and commenting!! ♥️

  3. Eat the cupcake and donuts boo 🤣🤣🤣 Amen!! I’m a fitness instructor whose battled eating disorders for years and I’m constantly trying to teach people balance. Cupcakes are a part of balance. The comparison game is sick. Preach! 🙌

    1. YESSS!! 😂😂😂😂 EAT THE DAMN SNACKS! (every now and then) Hahaha! I agree with you though! Balance is everything and makes a difference. Thanks for stopping by to read !! 💕 I hope you’ve had a great Valentines Day!!

  4. This is such a great post! Thank you for suggesting it. I try to practice positive self banter as often as I remember to. It’s only then that I feel truly at ease with life.

  5. Great post. I definitely relate. It’s unfortunate that we can be so many mindlessly cruel to ourselves with negative self talk. Self love is definitely a better alternative. Thanks for sharing your positivity.

  6. Thank you Jessica for another fabulous post with SO much great information. I am working on treating myself as it will probably change my state of mind. I hope you are having a great day and that your Valentine’s Day was wonderful!

  7. This is such an important post written so beautifully even💕. Having a relationship with yourself is crucial – self-love. This protects us from all the people who have impure intentions with us and those who don’t see our worth✨

  8. This is such a great inspiring post. I’ve always struggled with self encouragement and feel guilty about treating myself. But I’m working on both and I’m a lot easier on myself than I have been in recent months.

  9. I love how you started this post with snacks lol. Self love is so important and its OK to have a little treat now and again, as humans we’re always hardest on ourselves and that’s something I personally need to work on. Great post.

  10. I struggle with this even though I work on it daily. Self love is so important and I’m trying to practice this more often. Great read and thanks for sharing!
