There’s enough love to go around. You know it, I know it. And, if we’re lucky, we feel it often. We find love in our: partners, children, family, and friends. We get warm ‘hellos’ and genuine compassion from other people in our lives, too. Maybe even from our favourite baristas or librarians!

And we give love back to those people, too. We show them we care with our actions, words, thoughts. In little ways and big ways, we work hard to make others feel loved and cared for.

But are you saving some of that love for someone really special?

Are you saving some of that love for YOU?

I have written a lot about self-love, and that’s because it was one of the driving forces behind starting this blog. I was ready to love myself again. To be who I am and not apologize for it. To say, “My happiness is worthy of time spent on my passions. I am worthy.”

In the 3 1/2 years since Let ME Out!! began so much has happened. This concept of self-love has returned time and time again when I was least expecting it. In times of frustration, exasperation, and exhaustion I have had to remember to treat myself well. Incorporating ‘something’ into my day just for me was enough to feel like I was doing that.

Sometimes that ‘something’ is spiritual: sitting in silence, getting to a yoga class, or listening to devotional music. Sometimes that ‘something’ is physical: dancing around the kitchen, taking a little extra time in the shower, or getting an extra hour of sleep.

And sometimes…that ‘something’ is just plain adding some beauty into my life! I’m drawn to things that exude a natural beauty. I don’t like flashy and showy, but simple and elegant just lights up my heart.

In the spirit of self-love and beautiful things, I want to share with you something I have a growing collection of – little treats I give myself just because I work hard, love hard and give hard. Just because I am ME.
