My 19th year around the sun held a Valentines day filled with love for myself. A day to make ME feel good and tell myself 'You deserve all the love in the world as much as anyone else'. I've never shared a Valentines because lil Lucy Jane has never found what love really is,  but I don't see that as a bad thing. I don't wallow in a pit of self-pity as I emanate all my singleness, I get up and make the day about me because I have found love for myself. I pristinely paint on my make up because I want to look in mirror and adore my reflection. I slip on my prettiest red dress because I want to dance around aimlessly to my favourite songs and feel a million dollars. I wear a smile on my face because I want to continuously emit all the love I hold inside to everyone around me! 

2018 is the year of me. 
Regardless of sounding selfish, I want to put myself first because I should be the most important person in my life. I want to grow and develop into a version of me I cannot fault, one I will forever feel happy in and feel 100% proud of.  I want to be my own best friend, my own life coach, my own cheerleader and pour love into myself because I deserve it! Of course I care for everyone in my life and am so grateful to be surrounded by amazing people, but I think everyone needs to put themselves first sometimes. 

In the wise words of RuPaul...
'If you don't love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?'
