Love Thyself First

As the month of love come to an end I want to remind you to love yourself like you have or been shown all month long. We put so much pressure on love in the month of February. It’s actually kind of overwhelming.


Yes we all want to receive true love from a partner. But true love should first come from

above and then from self. I got the word “agape” tatted after a break up to remind myself of the order of love. Like most women I fell into the fairly tale of love and was beyond heartbroken when that fairy tale didn’t happen. From that moment on I made it my mission to love God first and then myself so that I can be the best me for my future partner and children.


The gag is self love isn’t rainbows and butterflies either. Sometimes it look like work, therapy, tears, prayer, bubble bath, candles, trips to Targert, quiet time alone. It can be uncomfortable, messy and it doesn’t always feel good. But those growing pains are so worth it.

I’m an expert on Tamra. I’ve learned how to love myself and still learning. Especially with so much change in my life over the last few years. Regardless of what happens in my life I want to keep loving on me so that I can be good for everyone around me. It’s a journey.
