I think there is too much focus on Valentines Day on loving someone else, and not enough on loving you.
I have a tendency to give myself a hard time about the smallest things. This week I have been struggling with negative self-talk, and had myself convinced that I would be a failure at the venture I am planning. I even convinced myself that my sewing skills aren't good enough for me to have this blog and the associated facebook page.
Why do we do this to ourselves?
I know I'm not the only one who struggles with this kind of thing, I'm willing to bet that most of you also have a problem loving yourselves. I have a saying stuck to my computer screen, and I try and stick by this:
Stop hating yourself for everything you aren't.
Start loving yourself for everything that you are.
I think this Valentines Day we should concentrate on loving ourselves, and being kind to ourselves.
But enough of the serious stuff - lets get to the giveaway!
To show my love an appreciation for all of you, for your kind words and support, I want to giveaway a dress kit. Yes, everything you need to make this dress:
You will get:
- the pattern
-the red polka dot fabric for the dress
- white fabric to make the trim on the bodice
- red fabric for the jacket
- zipper, thread, and bias tape
And I'm not going to make you jump through hoops to get it! All I want you to do is comment on this post and tell me one thing you love about yourself. Miss Stella will draw the winner next Thursday the 20th of February after 5pm (thats Australian time by the way), and I'll announce the winner here on Friday the 21st.
I love the way that I love a challenge and I won't quit. Doesn't matter if its sewing, or at the gym, or whatever. Give me a task and I will fight through all kinds of obstacles until its done. I love my determination.
So comment away! What do you love about you?
