So much love is expressed on Valentines Day, right!! Just scrolling through your social media feeds, you see pictures of flowers, candy, date night outfit selfies, fine wine, and kids valentine cards, #bestboyfriendever #luckiestgirlever all so sweet. It feels good right? But then its the day after, and the next, and the next. The over saturated sweetness subsides, BUT can we allow love in, everyday, always?
Can we dust off our hearts, and start to open the space of our body that sometimes feels so closed down? Can we start by slowly erasing, the “I’m not good enough” record that runs our lives, our jobs and work and our relationships? Can we make this a habit to do more often, kinda like a little self-check in. Heart maintenance?
That feeling that we are all searching for at work, in our relationships, and in our life, however is self-love. Unfortunately, people spend most of their time thinking someone or something else can give them what only they can give themselves. To be truly fulfilled in life and relationships, you have to find the love within you and give it to yourself. No other person, material possession or accomplishment can do it. It’s up to you.
Especially when it comes to relationships, self-love is essential. One of the best gifts you can give to the people around you is to love yourself in a genuine way. You know the saying “You can’t love anyone else until you love yourself.
