100 Ways Of Delicious Dani
First of all Happy Love Day to all my beautiful & amazing blog readers! I hope that all of you had a wonderful day celebrating all the LOVE that is in the world, whether it be love for a person, an animal, or just the world in general. This practice should be done EVERY DAY and not just on February 14th.
I am a firm believer in radical self love. What does this mean? Basically, it means that you should be 100% in love with yourself. Sometime last year for some strange reason I stopped doing this. I became bitchy, self loathing, started petty arguments when I should have just relaxed and let things BE. Now, I am back to taking a bit of time out to love myself. This blog post may be a bit self indulgent, but I'm not backing down. Loving yourself is important. How can I love the world, my friends, my phenomenal David, and my family if I can not ove myself? How can I make the world a happier place if I'm not happy with myself? Change starts with yourself, then your family, then your community, then the world. So make the wise decision to LOVE yourself!
RADICAL SELF LOVE IN THE HOUSE!
Also, if any of you want to write lists of reasons why you love yourself- even if just on Twitter, on Facebook, or your own blogs, please send me a link- I would love to read them! My Twitter just in case you are not on here is http://www.twitter.com/joiseydani and my Facebook is www.facebook.com/joiseydani
