” … plant your own garden and decorate  your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” – Veronica A. Shoffstall

A little over a month ago, the fabulous blog editor at Bella Grace Magazine warmed my heart by asking me to write a specific post for them this Valentine’s Day! She asked if I would write a “How to,” piece entitled, “How to Write a Love Letter to Yourself.” Instantly, I said YES!

It is quite amazing how expendable we think we are … how we’ve been cultured and desensitized to the point that we’ve decided we are replaceable. Well darling … this piece is a slow down and think, a breathe in and out, a stop and remember just how unrepeatable you are.

I hope you will take a moment to click on the link and remember how to love yourself. Leave a comment and please share the love this Valentine’s Day with your faith, with your friends, with your family, and always – with yourself.

Be loved,

  1. Oh Elle, reading your beautiful words reminded me of how much I enjoy writing love notes and how long it’s been since I have sat down to write a letter to a loved one. I think it’s time to bring that practice back to life. I just might start with myself. 🙂

  2. I read Your “love letter to a single friend” in Bella Grace … it took me longer than usual to read it because I read it through teary eyes! OHMYGOSH I LOVED IT!!! I am 41 (and a 1/2) and single… never married and not willing to settle. I keep Wondering if my Mr Right got hit by a bus or something 🤪 I feel Like you wrote this about ME! Beautifully written! Super insightful and inspiring and i thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing it 💗 -Shannon O’Malley

    • Shannon! You are absolutely the reason! I’m so blessed to know this piece touched your heart. You continue to not settle dearest. Know that God has placed you in this time for a reason beyond your comprehension, but I’m confident that the lives you touch will have been sweeter for not having had to share you.
