Welcome to the Messy Middle Road Trip podcast. As we approach Valentine’s Day, Sandra and I wanted to sit down and have a conversation about why we think self-love, especially in midlife, is the most important kind of love we can give. On today’s show, we discuss body image, affirmations, mirror work and small ways you can remind yourself how important it is to love yourself so that you can show up fully to love those around you.

What are some ways that you show yourself some love? Is it making a cup of tea in your favorite mug? Is it taking a brisk winter walk and turning your face toward the sun? Is it smiling at yourself in the mirror and telling yourself that you look cute? Is it buying yourself a piece of art that makes you smile every time you look at it? Every gesture counts when “courting” yourself. Plant those seeds with your kiddos and young family members so they can grow into adults that love themselves.
We hope you enjoyed this episode of The Messy Middle Road Trip Podcast and feel inspired to show yourself some love. Remember, it’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself and make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.
