True Confession:: I’m not a great gift giver. 🎁 My love languages are quality time and small acts of kindness. . However, God has blessed my life with the VERY BEST gift giving friends and family. My mother, for instance, makes birthdays and Christmas pure magic. . . This Monday morning was a pretty rough one: the dog 🐶 ate ant poison, I dropped and broke a new potted plant and the #boytwin was not a happy camper...then a dear friend stopped by with a big ol’ #starbucks cinnamon dolce latte and these pretty ear rings wrapped up in the perfect pink package ... For Me! ☺️. . For no other reason than to say she loves me and believes in me. Thank you, @3lilcrox for sharing your love language of gift giving with me 💕. ......... ......... .......... #katespade #momtruth #momlife #workingmom #momsofIG #virginiamom #rvapodcasts #podcasts #courageworks #liveboldly #mompodcasts #bethechange #courage #bettertogether #womenriseup #motherhood #friends #5lovelanguages #gift

|| WORDS OF AFFIRMATION {1/5 love languages} 💚⤵️ · If you know someone who's main love language is words of affirmation (🙋🏼‍♀️hey🙋🏼‍♀️hi) here's a few things you can do to really let them know you love them: ➡️ ACTIONS: - speak the words of affirmation directly to them or to their friends and family about them. - physically show your words of affirmation on a card, text, or hand written letter (😍letters are the way to my heart. Once I got a bunch of hand written letters before I backpacked Europe and I cried. A lot) ➡️COMMUNICATION: - express your words of affirmation through encouraging words, compliments, and having an affirming spirit. - tell them often you love them, a thank you, tell them what you appreciate about them, or just give a simple "you look nice today" ➡️🙅🏼‍♀️ DONT: - don't give emotionally harsh criticism - don't talk down to them - don't forget to affirm them · Remainder of the 4 love languages (quality time, gifts, acts of service, & physical touch) coming this week💓 In the mean time, this is me telling you "☝🏼 YOU ARE GREAT. Don't stop being great. And keep that beautiful smile on your face 🌞||

You are the books you read, the movies you watch, the people you surround yourself with and the conversations you engage in. 📖❤️ - With that thought, I had a resolution to read one book a month, listen to more podcasts & @ted talks and watch more documentaries rather than mindlessly watching Netflix and it’s going really well. - Girl, Wash Your face is my current read and I am LOVING it!! You are a Badass is my all time favorite and I’ve read it 3 times this year. It’s the only book I’m taking with me to my Masters program so it’s pretty significant! I can’t recommend these 2 enough!! - What are your favorite books & podcasts right now? 💭 • • • • • #mindfulmonday #meditationmonday #mentalhealth #motivation #inspiration #yearofyou #goodvibesonly #girlwashyourface #health #healthiswealth #plantbased #yoga #oils #mood #colorfulthrive #monday #youareabadass #presentoverperfect #subtleartofnotgivingaf #5lovelanguages

People talk a lot about love languages. Your love language is the way you experience love: through acts of service, gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, or physical touch. They can be an important component of a healthy relationship. But how do you communicate love with yourself? If your love language is acts of service, then all the positive affirmations in the world aren’t going to feel like love for you. So how can you communicate the different love languages for yourself? #ActsOfService: do something kind for yourself. Make your lunch the night before. Clean your apartment before you go on vacation. #Gifts: get yourself that shirt you’ve been eyeing, pick out a new book at the second hand store. #QualityTime: take yourself out for a meal, sit down and read a good book #WordsofAffirmation: remind yourself of all the things you love about yourself, write a nice message on the mirror #PhysicalTouch: get a massage, rub your feet, put on some lotion. This is by no means an exhaustive list, nor are any of the ideas mandatory, but should get you started thinking about how you can best communicate self love. What’s your love language? If you’re not sure, there are quizzes you can take online. Or, better still, try out a few and see what feels best. You can never have too much self love. • [Image text: What is your love language with yourself?] • #lovelanguage #selflove #lovelanguages #5lovelanguages #bekindtoyourself #mentalhealth

Yes it is ❤ Honestly my husband and I took a #5lovelanguages workshop a few years ago and I was #wordsofaffirmation he was physical touch. I'm a believer that as we grow and move through different seasons of life our love language can change. Thinking of taking a workshop again to see where we fall this time. Have any of you taken a course or read the book? #marriagetakeswork to build a #strongfoundation

I’m hoping one day I can be as good of a child to my own parents. —————————————————— My dad is spoon feeding dinner to his mom/my ailing grandmother. This is what love is. #5lovelanguages #actofservice #family

Every day I find little love notes around my house, affirmations, positive quotes and words.⠀ ⠀ So many different little surprises that daily remind me how much my beautiful girl loves me.⠀ ⠀ Her love language is gifts and words, mine is service and quality time. ⠀ ⠀ I am so grateful to have read #5lovelanguages to have this insight so I can meet her needs.⠀ ⠀ If you have not read this book I have to recommend it as a first next read.⠀ ⠀ Whether for your marriage, parenting or friendship this simple read can really open your heart for greater understanding and closer relationships. ⠀ ⠀ I only wish I discovered it in my teens. ⠀ ⠀ 6 years after my good friend shared this with me I am still reaping the benefits. Thanks @allison_roser 💖

Ever taken the 5 Love Languages test? #5lovelanguages #fivelovelanguages I am lucky that both hubs and myself score very low on the #giftsgiven part. Because it’s a #weeklate for our #13thanniversary and yet we still haven’t exchanged cards. 🤣 We bought them! We even brought them on our vacation. We just kept forgetting to #exchangecards Glad to know he loves me still! ❤️ I try to work on sending cards and give gifts to those close to me but it is not something that I remember easily without a system to remind me. And even then, I often fail. Still, I chuckle that hubby and I both forget these things. #ilovehim #madeforeachother #truelove #giftgivers #hubbyandme #anniversary #anniversarygift #cardsoflove #forgetfulspouses #giftsarenteverything #gladihavehim #thankfulgratefulblessed #gracecovers #intentionalmarriage #madeforeachother #marriagematters #marriagewoes #maritialbliss #maritialissues #lovelanguages #lovelanguagegifts #cardsforalloccasions #intentionalliving

I’ve been thinking about love a lot lately. This is how I see it, not a flash and fizzle, but a long, slow, steady build that creates a lifetime of together. Now to find it. #love #thoughtsfortoday #5lovelanguages #soshy
