Be Your Own Girl Crush

love your life Feb 10, 2021

"I don't need roses from a Valentine if I can sip rosé with my Galentines"


We're approaching Galentine's Day. I'm not making that up. It's a real fake holiday. It found its roots on Parks and Recreation as Amy Poehler's character Leslie Knope declared it as a day to ditch husbands and boyfriends. Over 10 years later it's still going strong.

It's marked on February 13 every year and it's a time to celebrate your gal pals and the special bonds you have built with each other as you navigate the quirks, absurdities and wonders of life. It's a day to smother your female friends with more love that you usually do.

Sometimes we neglect to give that kind of love to ourselves. I know. Being in a relationship with myself and being true to myself hasn't always been easy for me. I didn't always believe that I deserved to be love. I thought I wasn't good enough or perfect enough. 

Finally, I got it.

I realized that no amount of self-improvement could replace self-acceptance and that lead to self-confidence.

I've been friends with myself for a long time now. 

What if you simply devoted this month to loving yourself more? How would your life be better?

However your spend Galentines, Valentines or both, I hope all your days are filled with love.

Now give yourself a squeeze (no, really do it).
