Although some people can’t stand February 14th…. I LOVE Valentine’s Day!!
In full disclosure… it’s one of my favorite holidays. I think I just love to celebrate Love in whatever form that may take. And for some reason I LOVE all the pink and red stuff that’s everywhere.
Anyway, there’s no reason not to have FUN today….go out with your best friend, or significant other. Go to one of those anti- Valentines party. Heck go to the shooting range and do target practice on a picture of cupid! Whatever will light you up … have fun with this day full of LOVE.
You don’t’ have to buy into the idea of needing chocolates and flowers and fancy dinners (although they can be very nice to receive!)… switch your perspective and see it as a day to celebrate all the LOVE that’s already in your Life. What if that was what Valentines Day turned into… a day to look for all the ways LOVE is already here for you! Or maybe it totally turned into a day of Self-Love.
Every week I do distance Reiki sessions for a women’s group called “Beauty, Balance and Badassery” and last Sunday we came up with a huge list of ways you can show Self-Love…which was perfect for this week! The list included; taking an Epsom salt bath, doing some restorative yoga, going to get your nails done, or going to a get a massage. Which those are wonderfully straightforward. But then the amazing Ladies in the group came up with some ideas of Self-Love that were pretty creative; buy yourself the more expensive coffee or tea, take the time to listen to your favorite podcast, invest in some nice new makeup or skincare (which I LOVE that idea!), up the amount on your monthly savings or investments, clean out your wallet or purse, sleep until you wake up on your own without an alarm clock or invest in some nice sheets or pillows. It was an awesome list of ideas to show your self some Love.
So whatever you plan on doing today….see if you can look for the ways Love is already here in your Life or take few of the ideas listed above and make this a day for you!
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day this year..however you’re going to celebrate it!
