Happy Valentine’s Day to my followers 🙂 Today is the traditional day for celebrating love, but I believe love is something that should be celebrated all year around, with everyone in our lives. Even if you’re single today, take time to appreciate how much love is in your life right now. Look for all the ways the people in your life show you they love you, from the friend who has always supported and believed in you no matter what, to the cup of coffee your sister brought you as a peace-offering that time you had a spat.
The reality is that even if we’re not in the right relationship yet, our lives are filled with love. All of us have people in our lives who would do anything for us, but we’re so focused on the form it should take, that it only counts if it comes from a romantic partner, that we miss the love that’s right in front of us and all around us.
How can you show more love and appreciation to your loved ones today? Call up an old friend and tell them you’ve been thinking of them. Invite some of your single friends around for a home cooked dinner. Tell someone how much they mean to you, and how lucky you are to have them in your life. Do all this with the pure intention of giving love, without expecting anything in return.
And of course, also spend today giving love to yourself. Fill yourself up with love, do something you’ve been wanting to do for ages. Take the afternoon off and indulge in a favourite book. Think of ways you can commit even more deeply to yourself by visioning the big dream you have for your life and the great purpose you were born to share with the world, and take the first steps today to make that a reality.
Happy Valentine’s Day again, and no matter what your relationship status, allow today to be as love filled as you can make it. You are pure love at your core, so share the gift of your authentic self, everywhere you go. xoxoxo
