Valentines day, a day where Scandinavians buy roses for over 10EUR a piece, cultivated in Africa, shipped to the very North pole and sold for a fortune, in one of the coldest month of the year – speaking of awareness and seasonal shopping 😉
The day of love should not only be a day where you set focus out of yourself, but rather a day to spend time on focusing on one of the persons you should love the most in life : yourself.
Have you set off a little time today to celebrate you and just you? Take a long bath, listen to good music, take a power walk – or a power nap, hug your loved ones, cuddle with a pet, listen to a child laughing, read a good book, watch your favourite serie or movie, eat a big amount of quality chocolate, exercise, sit on the sun for a minute, listen to a podcast you like, work on a personal project you dream of finalizing, paint, sing, or just lay down on your bed and look at the roof and feel alive for a while?
Take that time today, to do something you really appreciate. Not something useful, something productive, something you just enjoy doing or feeling.
As for me, I have started a journey towards a minimalistic life, so shopping or getting presents is not on my wish list at all today. I just want to go for a sledge ride with my Mini, and spend time with my family that I love so much. Being back here in Sweden, I feel so grateful for the smart, warm and simply fantastic family I have, it is really everything isn’t it? <3
Happy Valentines beautiful people, hope you get to spend it well! <3
