Hey Beautiful People!
How are you feeling? You know, every time I say the word feeling I think about the song Happy Feelin’s by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly!
Hold on let me play that while I write to you (Siri play Happy Feelin’s). This song is all the feels today…seriously, read the lyrics below. It’s a message for somebody reading this! Especially since it’s the day after Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day is hard for some people, I used to be some people. No shame! I just had to do the work, work through it and now, I’m constantly doing the work.
What’s the work you ask? Well for me, it is filling the week before, the day of and a few days after Valentine’s Day with activities that make me feel good about myself…self-care! This year I flew out to my hometown of Houston, TX and spent the week before Valentine’s Day with my Mom. Sometimes just being in the presence of loved ones can lift your spirit.
I also worked on and launched this project, Self-Care is… which brought me so many “happy feelings”. Also, talking to you and sharing today is the work...okurrr
Listen, you have to find the joy around you, sometimes in the simplest things! For example, on Valentine’s Day I loved on ME, mind, body and soul. One of my favorite things that I did yesterday was cleanse my face...sounds simple right?
It was therapeutic and self care at its finest. I’m in a meditative state when I’m doing it. When I cleanse my face, I practice the 10 step Korean skin care routine. Do you know what that is? Well, you will today, check out the link.
The oil cleansing, the serums...yes, Yes, YES! Then the moisturizer and oil, it’s so good! Who knew that shea butter, rose hip oil and hyaluronic acid serum could be so magical?!
The point is, we have to stop looking for love and validation outside of ourselves. Like the lyrics of song say “I’ve got myself to remind me of love”. Meaning, you are love and when you’re feeling down, do something in your control that will raise your vibration to remind yourself of love.
Get to a point where you never hold another person responsible for your happiness, whether it’s family, friends or a significant other. Remember, you have yourself and your self care practices to remind you of love!
So… what do you plan to do for yourself this week? How can you love on you like no one else can? Leave a note in the comment section, I look forward to reading your replies.
If it’s any consolation, know that you are beautiful, amazing and highly gifted, celebrate yourself! And I love you, thank you for reading this! (and no, it’s not too late - Drake 😂 )
Go love on yourself and we’ll talk soon.
Happy Feelin’s by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly
Happy feelin's in the air touching people everywhere
Plenty love and everything listen to the people sing
I got myself to remind me of love
My mind and my heart I believe in above
These happy feelin's I'll spread them all over the world
From deep in my soul I wish you
Happy Feelin's Happy Feelin's
Happy Feelin's Happy Feelin's
I I've seen the light watch them shine down on me
I'm gonna spread my wings I'm gonna tell all I see
These happy feelin's I spread them all over the world
From deep in my soul
