SelfHug Let me let you in on a little secret. I’m a hopeless romantic.

Okay, maybe it’s not really a secret, and I just like to think that I have this tough exterior and no one knows how mushy I am inside. Today, I’m telling the truth, romance is core value of mine.

That being said, I want to put a spin on VD that I hope will be contagious (puns intended). I feel so much love from my gladiators and those that cherish my heart, and I want to show myself some of that same energy. One of my relationships “must haves” is to be in love with someone who is in love with their own life. So today, I’m going to celebrate Valentine’s Day by espousing the ways that I’m in love (okay, developing it) with myself.

1-      I am resilient beyond measure.

2-      I am an eternal optimist.

3-      I am spiritually centered and attuned.

4-      I don’t see glass ceilings or odds (for the most part).

5-      I believe in miracles.

6-      I am committed to growth.

7-      I strongly believe in service and sisterhood.

8-      I am incredibly funny and witty.

9-      I am forgiving and see the best in people.

10-   I have a shape like Beyonce and am pretty, too. (Yeah, I said it!)

11-   I am loyal.

12-   I prefer silver linings.

13-   I can supply useless facts, etymologies, and ancient references like no other.

14-   I am well-read and highly educated.

15-   I can fry chicken and make slap-ya-mama gumbo.

16-   I appreciate wine and sweet tea.

17-   I can talk to you about Botticelli and Lil Boosie.

18-   I am comfortable to be around.

19-   I’m a good person.

What traits and qualities do you have that you’re in love with? I bet you can come up with a list. Go!!
