Today is Valentine’s Day the 14th February. The day when we are all supposed to share our love for our partner or the person we secretly admire. But do you love and commit to the most important person in your life?
I remember at school this being quite a stressful day – who has got one, who hasn’t, who you’ve sent one too, which one you don’t want, who sent it if you did get one – is it reciprocated, will they know it was you who sent the card?
As we grow up we learn that its more of a commercial event – or perhaps we tell ourselves that so it doesn’t affect us if we are not in a relationship.
There is one relationship which is absolutely key to us, One relationship which we have complete control over. One relationship which we should prioritise above all others. One relationship which is usually ignored, left to starve, be empty, run down, uncared for. You’ve guessed it – its the relationship we have with ourselves – self love – self care.
It’s so important for us to look after ourselves, but so many of us neglect ourselves – low priority, low self worth, not worth the time, no time to do anything, can’t do anything, not as good as others, everyone else is better…..
So today on St Valentine’s Day I invite you to find five minutes and refill your jug, meditate, have a hot drink and biscuit, massage your hands, polish your nails…. whatever it is that means you are spending time on just you.
You may like to do the meditation I’ve recorded for you. Or you may want to invest more time in yourself (because you are worth it) and buy the “I love my life” mini-course (half price!)
If you don’t look after yourself, care for your body, mind and emotions – then how can you support the people you love around you? How can you do the things you love to do? Quite simply, you must find time to look after yourself.
Today is the perfect day to make that commitment to yourself – to love yourself – to care for yourself
“I love myself completely, just as I am at this moment”
Don’t put it off until you’ve lost weight, done exercise, found a partner, had a hair cut, got new glasses….. there is only one moment in time that you can effect and that is RIGHT NOW! Tomorrow never comes and yesterday is gone. Today is a present – a gift to be the best you can be – to simply be you x
