Valentine’s day wish list

3 Feb

Every year I devote February to my loved ones.

Is not that what we are taught from grade school? We have whole lectures devoted to writing letters to our parents and then our class fellows and friends, telling them in every one of them as to how much we love them. And then whole evenings spent wrapping little gifts for the same people. Whole days spent making lists for what to get for whom and more days spent in buying them.

So for me, February has always been about expressing my love to everyone around me.

But one very important person our school forgot to tell us to write letters to, a person that maybe should have been close to the top of all our lists, if not that at the very top, a person we should all have been buying gifts for every year too. A person as important as the rest of them.

Who is that person you ask? You!

Growing up, although we were always told to respect ourselves and even love ourselves we were never shown how to practice that, how to reinforce that. And over the time I have realized that to love oneself is not just to say it on a daily basis, but to practice it. To take care of yourself before anything else, to look after your own needs and requirements-it is not selfish, I realized, but essential. And it is almost as important to reward ourselves for little accomplishments as to shower ourselves with love on special occasions.

Hence, I decided that this year I will celebrate my love for myself right along with celebrating that which I had for those around me.

So when people began sharing ideas for what to get for your loved ones, I began to make a list of what I would like to buy for myself this year. A wish list for Valentine’s day that is, and today I want to share it with you to hopefully inspire you to go and get something for yourself. And if not that, you can use this as a guide for valentine’s day gift ideas for your best girlfriends. Or your singular, very much loved, girlfriend! 😉

So, here it is-my wishlist/ a Valentine’s day gift guide for her.

What are you planning to get for yourself? And for your loved ones? Do let me know, I would love to hear your ideas!

Love,
Gull

        Wow … nearing the end of many chapters … You must be ready for the next! Congrats and good luck.

        Ohio? It’s been a colder than normal winter … and that trend started in November … so Ohioans are tired of it!

        I’m touched that you remembered that February is my birthday month. My blog celebration is ready (In two weekends from this past weekend).

        Hahaha of course I remembered. I was planning a few events hence couldn’t reply earlier. I’ll definitely be looking forward to the blog celebrations!

        And I get you. Winters are fun. But only when they don’t drag. And mind their temperatures 🙈😂 😛

        Yes. Old chapters ending. Hopefully new ones starting. I’m right now in a weird phase caught between nostalgia and excitement. Thank you for your good wishes!! Will need a lot of them for the future!

        Enjoy the in-between period because once life gets cranked up again, the crazy pace returns.
