Day 14/14 of Self Love :: Buy Yourself Flowers

Flowers are a symbol of love and appreciation. You may have been gifted a beautiful bouquet when you graduated, or had a baby, or moved into a new house. They might have been anniversary flowers, apology flowers, or it-was-nice-to-meet-you flowers.

The key to the power of flowers is what they celebrate and how they make you feel. You know you were beaming when your hubby had flowers delivered to your desk at work, and you know the joy you feel when you smell peonies. Flowers are associated with being loved, cherished and celebrated.

The biggest misconception about flowers is thinking they have to come from someone else. Thinking that you need a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day to buy you two dozen long-stem roses, or you that need your friends to bring flowers to celebrate your housewarming or new addition to the family.

If you’re looking for permission, here it is: buy flowers just to celebrate you. Praise yourself, reward yourself, and give yourself a damn break, girl.

Allow your appreciation to bloom – because you are loved. By others, and, most importantly, by yourself. It’s okay, no, it’s necessary to treat yourself sometimes. If you need a reminder that you are awesome, that you are loved, and you are worth celebrating, buy yourself some flowers, put them somewhere you’ll see them every day, and remember that those good vibes were sent to you from you xx
