“If you don’t love yourself how the hell you gonna love somebody else!” — RuPaul
I don’t know about you but I do quite enjoy building relationship with myself, sooner or later you will realise that you don’t need someone else to fulfil every single need or expectation you have in life because
YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF!
In no way I am saying you don’t need the Mr Right, I am very happy in my romantic relationship, but it did took me a while to figure out the relationship I have to work on first is the one with myself and then you can really love the person you are with!
Loving yourself comes in many forms, a cheeky little bar of chocolate, signing up a personal trainer, pampering yourself for a spa day or rolling out that yoga mat. Whatever it is that pleases you. The moment you start loving and fully accept yourself, comes beauty from in and within. Trust me people can smell it! Much like beauty, self love is a life long pursuit and there isn’t a simple quick fix.
We all know the saying ‘You are what you eat’, eating well doesn’t only mean having a straight homogeneous diet, but it is also about knowing how to enjoy food, its flavour, texture and fragrant. Next time try something you haven’t try before, spice it up a little out of your comfort zone! Appreciating food is almost like treating your body with nutrition. Did you know saffron keep balance of dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin which will surely put a smile on your face next time you use it to spice up your dish!
Being zen and balance is also important to stay beautiful! I try to stay mindful while I practice yoga and meditate, it helps organise train of thought organically, especially in a busy and heartache city like Hong Kong. While disappearing in galleries and museum listening to meditating music works the magic for me too! Not only art is that activity which manifests beauty, it is also a discovery and development of elementary principles of nature into beautiful forms. With that being said, aren’t we all just trying to turn things and ourselves into beautiful forms in some way, inside and outside?
The true beauty has to be coming from in and within, so love yourself first so you know what you deserve!
