My favourite Valentine's post this year! 'Table for one' is an invincible attitude.
Wonderfully wise words.
i find your little message bemusing. that'll do me, for this year around. bon appétit, or am i just repeating myself? ♥
You're back, how lovely! Happy Valentine's day, Denise.
"You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." ~ Attributed to Gautama Siddharta. Every day is a good day to remember. Thanks, Denise. Happy Day to you.
So refreshing after all this commercial cheesiness. It's true we should all be a little kinder to ourselves.
i totally agree, who can love someone that hates themselves - it is a recipe for faiolure.
love your blog...and i love this advice so very much.
A lovely thought, Denise. Have a happy day.
Yep, wise words. That's where it all begins...Oh, and happened to have a blood orange and sparkling water yesterday and thought of you - xHappy rainy week :^)
Happy Valentine's Day Denise
As soon as I get out of this shop I'm going to love myself into a hot bath with a steaming cup of tea.Then tomorrow I'll take myself on a date to get a pedicure and massage.I KNOW I'll be more lovable.xo Jane
Thank you for the reminder, Denise. Have you read Sarah Ban Breathnach's book Simple Abundance? "Love thyself" is the mantra of her book. I'm sure you'd love it, too.
Agreed. And we have those juice glasses too. Your breakfast looks peaceful and carefully prepared. I need to sit down and eat breakfast more often.
Thanks, everyone. I hope you all treated yourselves well yesterday and continue today. I could have done better, but I'm looking forward. Yes, Shae. Exactly.Janis, Have you dipped into the Cara Cara oranges yet? I had some last night that were exceptional. I'm returning to the source today. Jane, You've got the idea, exactly.the Lady, Yes, I have read it, but it has been a long while. Someone was kind enough to give me a copy, years ago.mosey, Those tasteful juice glasses belong to my apartment in Paris, and when I say "my apartment" I mean mine for a mere week. I think I treated myself better in Paris. No, I know I did. I want to change that, starting today. I want life to feel more peaceful and carefully prepared here at home. I'm beginning with an early walk -- right now.
such a good reminder. happy post valentine's day to you.
Happy Valentine's Day, Denise. Cheers to a year of personal kindness.
This posts reminds me of how rather fond I am of myself :)
This is incredibly hard for me, on any day. But, I'll try.
Here's to that! (several days later)
it's the truth!love the light in this photograph, too.
beautifully put, denise.
Tracy, Definitely worth saying twice.Julia, Really? Why? There's so much to love.
you can't love others if you don't love yourself first. Some people dive into relationships to fill a gap they have with themselves and its a big mistake.
how true - thank you denise!
I wish I had read this last week...Then again, I need it this week as well. I appreciate the reminder.
Rachel, Use it every week. You deserve it.
Timely and timeless. For I am here late, but it is still relevant.xoox,-maria
