Love thine self before others can love you

              Upon having a rough day the other day, I was thinking about how true it really is that you can't rely on others to provide your happiness you have to go out and find it yourselves. This being said you also can't expect others to love you until you love yourself, and if you aren't happy you aren't truly in love with your self (in a non big headed cocky way). This being said I took the time to sit down and think of ways to make oneself happy on your own. I thought up 103 ways!!
