Lessons from a Recovering Doormat

Heart 2.jpgFlowers are known to cheer people up. People bring them to loved ones who are sick. Men give them to their romantic partner to show their love. Some women, me included, have brought flowers to a guy too. Flowers brighten up a room and can put a smile on your face each time you see them. Roses are considered the strongest flower symbol of love.

So, as a loving gesture to YOU, stop and really smell the roses by buying some, or another kind of flowers you like!

You don’t have to get a lot. I often buy myself one rose so I can see it and smell it and feel some self-love in the process. If roses aren’t your thing, buy whatever flowers make you happy. I buy myself flowers regularly, just because I love me. I love having fresh flowers at home. Most people do! Every time I walk by my vase of flowers I’m reminded of how much I love
me.

You don’t need to wait for a special occasion. Loving yourself every day is special!

You can do that for yourself by getting flowers regularly for your home or your workspace–consciously as a loving gesture to YOU. Buy one lovely rose or a sweet bouquet of whatever you’d enjoy. I love daisies and buy them often. Sometimes I splurge on get sweet smelling lilies, which are more expensive but I love them! It all depends on my mood.

The most important thing is to get something that you see every day that shows you’re making an effort to be self-loving.

When something makes you smile, like seeing pretty flowers when you walk into your apartment or bedroom, the more it makes you feel good. The more you feel good from things you do for you, the more opportunity for self-love to grow. Go buy yourself a rose, or a whole bouquet of cheerful flowers. Think of it as a gift of love, to you, from you. The more you show yourself love, the more self-love you’ll feel.
