To love yourself means to respect and appreciate yourself as you are and to come to
terms with those aspects of yourself that you can’t change - the aspects that make
you unique. It means allowing yourself to drop the conditions that you have created
to love yourself like, “I will love myself once I…” and simply choose to embrace the
good and the bad, the mistakes and the triumphs.
Loving yourself isn’t a one-time thing, but an endless, ongoing process that starts
with realizing that it’s not about discovering self-love; it’s about tearing down the
walls you’ve built against it. Below are 6 ways to learn to love yourself more:
1. Focus on the things you like about yourself
2. Make time to do the things you enjoy
3. Let go of mistakes and embrace the past
4. Appreciate your life
5. Get out of your comfort zone
6. Take care of your body!

Gardening Tips For January
• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of water
than from lack of food.
• Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering.
• Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms.
• Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and
old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into
heavy soils: repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate
and quantities of organic matter into soil. Allow time for settling before
• Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete
fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six
inches away from plant. Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal.
• Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze
damage to crown.
• House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off
leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce
water for poinsettias.
• Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen mixture.
• Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as
flowers open. Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature
will be above 35˚ and below 85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed
manufacturer’s directions before spraying.
• Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings
of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semishaded
• Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape.
Do not remove too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs
before spring buds swell, but do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape
myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting
unwanted canes out at base of plant.
• Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the
spring buds break. To prevent later appearance of disease in the old beds,
keep garden clean of debris and weeds. Complete preparation of new
beds for roses.
• Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody
plants, both evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be
expended on roots instead of foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural
needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid
crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do not work wet
soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist.
• Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about
50% humus, including rotted manure.
• Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender
plants. Water. Remove coverings, particularly plastic, when temperature
rises. Protect low plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but
remove when weather warms.
