    I love the idea of writing a letter – almost a love letter – to yourself on Valentine’s Day. It’s always worth reminding ourselves that we’re capable and worthy of self love and care – whether you’re in a relationship or not! Great post <3

    Oh what a lovely letter it is always good to remind ourselves that we should take care of ourselves and this is a great way to do it. It would be interesting to revisit this in a years time.

    Aww this is fab, such a great idea! I think it a good idea to give ourselves that kind of motivation and remind ourselves to take a time out and not do too much for others without looking out for ourselves! 😍 Thanks for sharing 🌹

    This is a great idea – and so positive! You can do a follow up post this time next year where you write yourself and reply and reflect on how your life has changed in 12 months.

    “Free to choose, free to love and be loved, free to make mistakes” – Lena, I love this. I’ve never thought of writing to myself but this is something I’d definitely write down for Flora. I know this wasn’t the aim of your letter but this is something your future child would absolutely love to read and be lucky to do so. You rock, girl, you are amazing! x

    This is such a lovely idea! Caring and loving yourself are always great reminders (especially when you’re in a slump of some sorts). The way you’ve expressed yourself is very touching. You’ve got me sniffing! 🙂

    You have no idea how happy I am that self-love is really catching on. We’ve spent so much time trying to give others the love that we deserve ourselves and I am so happy that more and more people (myself included!) are learning that you have to love yourself first.

    Thanks for sharing! x

Life is not always sunshine and rainbows but we can remember those beautiful things when it storms and rains, and maybe it gives us the inner calm and strength that is needed to continue.

    This was so beautiful! I think I should write myself a letter like this to read at a time when I need it most because, like you said, we’re our biggest critic. I also need to remember that everything can’t get done at once, even though I like to think it can, and it’s completely okay to take a break when needed. Loved reading this!
