Hi from the sky friends! Brian and I have ended our Italian adventure and we are headed back to the states. Although the honeymoon is over and we are headed back to reality, I have another fabulous guest for you! Jessie, from Jessie Loves to Run, has been a blogging buddy of mine for quite some time now. Remember when she sent me a box of Weetabix?! What a sweet girl! Jessie is great at looking at things in a positive light, staying strong when times get tough, and being true to herself. She is also a fellow smoothie lover 🙂 I love it! So, without further ado….
Hi Guys! It’s Jessie @ Jessie Loves To Run.
Today I’m filling in for Mrs. Tara Rochford while she & her new husband, Brian are enjoying their romantic honeymoon in Italy.
I started reading Tara’s blog quite some time ago. Come to think of it, her blog was one of the firsts I had ever read. To be able to follow along her engagement journey, to read about the planning, and heart those two love birds put into each part of their wedding & relationship has been beautiful. They are the couple that you just know will have ever lasting love. So Tara & Brian, enjoy every second of everyday with one another <3
Speaking of love, that’s part of today’s post. If you’ve seen my last two guest posts I’ve done within the past month, one on Beauty and the other on Comparison, I figured it’d only make sense to add on.
We can sit here & come up with ideas on how to feel beautiful, or how to steer clear of comparison, but in the end do we?
Our first and last love is… Self-Love
I know there have been moments in my life where I’ve felt lost and uncertain when it comes to Self-Love. Self-Love is more than just being able to call yourself beautiful; it’s finding ways in life to bring out the best in you. So, I thought I’d share ways you can show yourself Self-Love.
Don’t define yourself by what you’ve done. Celebrate your accomplishments
… Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Love yourself, trust your choices, and everything is possible
So tell me, what are some Self Love ideas that have helped you?
Based on this post, here are a few similar ones you should check out.

I absolutely love this! I practice self love every single day. I have a journal that I write my affirmations in, and take the time to give myself rest and love. 🙂
Good job Keri!! What a great idea to make writing down affirmations a DAILY habit!!!

[…] Good morning and happy Wednesday!! For someone who said they weren’t going to post too often, I sure am sounding like a liar, huh?! Ha Ha! You see, I had totally forgot the guest post I wrote for Tara was scheduled for yesterday. Whoops! I hope y’all enjoyed reading my tips on Self-Love though <3. If you missed it, you can read it HERE.

Wonderful post & so many things we as females need to remember! I think my toughest one is “Say NO”. I’m a people pleaser by nature & always worried I’m “doing enough”. I need to find inner-peace that I am doing “enough” for me!
She did provide some great tips!! Things I need to remember too 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Love your post Jessie! I am so glad I found Tara’s blog! 🙂 Your posts always inspire me in some way Jessie and just make my day!
Thanks for stopping by Heather!! 🙂 Jessie is a pretty awesome girl!!! She definitely has great advice.
Love this! I definitely need to do a better job of forgiving myself, especially lately, since we have so much to do with our house. I have a tendency to focus on the negative, but I have to remember the positive things and just take one day at a time. Everything will get done eventually, and I don’t need to beat myself up about it!
That’s a great way to look at it, Melissa! Thanks for stopping by!
Thanks for introducing me to another wonderful blog, Jessie! I clicked over from yours and I just love making new blog friends 🙂 Such an awesome reminder, too!
Thanks for stopping by, Sami! It’s great to “meet” you!
I like that you brought up the concept of trusting ourselves. That can sometimes be even harder than trusting others. But our bodies have been with us through thick and thin and if we can’t rely on them then we literally will never make it through anything. That’s something I try to remember when going to the doctor. No one knows your body better than you.
I also like the idea of forgiving ourselves even more! It’s easier (not easy, just easier) to forgive others I think because we in general as people just want to get along. Everyone makes mistakes and I think most realize that. However I know personally I don’t always apply this to myself. It’s a lot harder to forgive myself and I definitely hold myself to a higher standard. I don’t forget easily.
Great post Jessie. You certainly gave us a lot to think about! 🙂
Welcome to the blog! Jessie did bring up some good points…so much to think about but at the end of the day we just need to be kind to OURSELVES!
Great points Jessie – it’s all so true. Self love is such an important thing.
She certainly hit the nail on the head!
It’s so important! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
even though these all may seem some simple things but because of stress and occupied lifestyle we forget it..i try to go for a walk and paint my nails to give me some love 🙂
Love this post and these wonderful ideas! My biggest one is taking time for myself and the way I do that is through exercise. It helps clear my mind and brings balance to my life.
I LOVE taking time for myself through exercise…it helps keep me balanced and happy 🙂
This made my day 🙂 love this post and ways to show yourself self-love. Sometimes you just need a reminder. Thanks Jessie
It really is a great reminder, Amy! Thank you for checking out the blog!
