The Person You Really Need To Marry

Hello, lovely people !

Happy Valentine Day! I know some people are cynical of valentines day but I think a day specifically dedicated to have nice it is to show love to everyone is a lovely idea. However I wanted to share something a little different this Valentines day, for those in relationships or single or anything in between.

Now, if you've been around for a while then you'll know how important I think self-love is. Looking after yourself and creating a healthy, happy you is the best thing you can do for both yourself and everybody else because to love somebody in the way that they need, you first need to love yourself.
I learnt everything I know about self-love on the wonderful blog Rainbow-Rose Blossom
So if self love is something that you'd like to apply to your life ( and I really recommend you do ) then please have a little read over at Rainbow's blog. You won't regret it, I promise !

A few months a go, I watched a video and it really affected my life in a positive way. This video was  a Ted Talk discussing "The Person You Really Need To Marry" and I urge you to watch this video because I just don't want any of you to miss out of the change this could make to your life.

Let me know in the comments what you think of the video! I'd also love to hear if there are any inspirational or interesting ted talks that you recommend because I'd love to see them !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  2. Awesome. I'm actually a Valentine's day fan. Lol. So happy valentine's!


  3. This is such a great Ted Talk! I actually watched it not too long ago and think that it was such an eye opener (without going into too much detail to ruin it!) I hope you had a wonderful valentine's day, Marianne :)

  4. I've never seen a Ted Talk before, this was my first one, I like how she can kind of make light of such a hard time but I like her Marry Yourself idea.

  5. I watched this video a while back and I could agree more with her point. Same as you said love has to start with you. I think you can not give something you don't have so if you lack self love you won;t be able to share it with others. Great share Marianne. I hope your girlfriend and you had a lovely valentines. Have a great weekend :)

  6. Happy {late!} Valentine's Day, Marianne!! I think we should all practise self-love, especially on Valentine's Day! Whether you're flying solo or not, the most important relationship you have is with yourself...so I appreciate this post so much :) Thanks for spreading the continued love we all need and deserve!
