Be Your Own Valentine (Every Damn Day!) on The Terri Cole Show

Be Your Own Valentine (Every Damn Day!) on The Terri Cole ShowWith Valentine’s Day around the corner, today’s podcast is all about self love. When I talk about love, I am not talking about the capitalist idea of Valentine’s Day. For those who know me, I do not really subscribe to the idea of Valentine’s Day, a day where your love should come in a heart-shaped box once a year.

I think we need a holiday that is specifically meant for us to take care of ourselves because I believe self love is the only path to any other love that is worth having. You should treat yourself with kindness and consideration, that’s why I came up with a self love ritual. I’ve been doing this ritual for a bunch of years, but this year is going to be a little different whether you are in a relationship or not, join me in this process of self-discovery.

You have the power to make yourself feel loved! I think this ritual will help you and make your Valentine’s Day great.

  1. Dear Terri!
    I have shared this with several other women. I really did this. First of all, I have begun to feel self-love. I did give myself a gift this year for Valentine’s Day. Trying to keep this brief, because I could write so much. My ex-bf (we are still friends) bought me jewelry before, but somehow I couldn’t accept it (“he only bought it because he knew I wanted it”). This particular Valentines, I wanted to buy some reasonably priced, gorgeous cubic zirconium and ruby-tones earrings. Sure enough, I found a pair I loved and bought them. I felt that if I overspent, this would be self-abusive since I recently bought my home and new car. This fit my budget and lifestyle, and they really look gorgeous. On top of that all, I was able to forgive both him and myself for not allowing myself to feel loved and cared for in the past. Other ways I practice self-love – I keep listening to podcasts (like yours), go outdoors for walks with loved ones since coffee shops are no longer an option. Self-love to my body, lungs, and so on. I eat the foods I really love – that means berries, artichokes, fresh fish, and whatever else suits me. I don’t beat myself up about my five-or-so extra kilos, I’ll deal with that eventually, but instead, choose to feel good in the body I’ve got! I actually enjoy each day, in a grounded kind of way, I laugh and smile a lot, and see the humor and grace in things around me. Not for anyone else, but for me. As a result, I’ve just naturally gotten better about setting boundaries, without fear or guilt. (Yippee!). On the other hand, I’ve become a bit ambivalent about finding love again, I’m 59 btw, but yet, I think the time will come because I do truly (and finally) love myself. It’s about freaking time. 😀

    1. Hi Anastasia,
      WOOHOO! I love this! Thank you so much for sharing! I’m so glad this resonated with you – it is truly never too late to practice self-love and to find a partner to share all that love with. ?❤️
