Oh sweet Valentine. On this day of love, how will you celebrate? Will you celebrate loudly, or not at all? Do you have a happy heart, or not so much? Wherever you fall on the spectrum it comes down to this, the day is what you make of it.
Having a significant other does not define that you are worthy of love. Valentine’s Day very often sets many single people up for disappointment. Don’t feel down if you don’t have a romantic partner in your life. A partner does not complete you, but rather complements all that you are. You must learn to love yourself first before you give your heart to someone else. Crush your insecurities and don’t ever feel that you need to change to make yourself more lovable, likeable, pretty, etc. to attract love. And, don’t you dare seek or wait for someone else to validate your worth. The person meant for you will love you as you are, even in your rawest ugliest moments. As long as you are sending out love, good thoughts and authentically be who you are, the person meant for you will enter your life at the right time. The universe may seriously be testing your patience, but the wait will be well worth it one day.
So today, promote love. Promote all that is optimistic. Revel in things that make you happy. Live by doing what awakens you and persist to live with happiness in your heart. Take time to treat yourself kindly and see the beauty and value in your own soul. Meditate on healing old wounds so you can freely move forward with fresh eyes that see endless possibilities. Celebrate the love that does surround you in all its various forms.
Do not wallow. Do not be sad. Focus on what you have in your life and not the love you think is missing. Put all positive vibes into the universe and see what comes back to you. Be love; give love; and radiate all that is good. Embrace your beautiful, unique, bad ass, loving self and face the world with a generous smile.
