This is a day that for some is pure joy, for some grief, and for others simply disappointment.
Wherever you stand today, keep it in perspective.
Some of you are well loved, but don’t appreciate it because you don’t love yourselves.
Some of you are grieving lost loves, and not celebrating the days these loves brought you great happiness. Yes, even if they proved to be fool’s gold, you get to celebrate the beauty that was shiny.
If you lost the authentic, you are still rich beyond measure. It’s still in your heart.
If love has eluded you, never underestimate the wonders of life. You still may stumble into it. If you don’t, I wonder what other special gifts you will receive instead?
If you are disappointed, ahhhhh – you failed to remember that you can’t control others. Meet your own expectations and don’t hand off your joy to others.
Valentine’s Day is a rather silly day, but truly it is what we make it. Love yourself, love others, and grab all the love that is sent your way and hold it in your heart.
You are a precious gift. You are unique and special. You are light to the world.
Throw candy hearts wherever you go. Metaphorically, not actually. Actually would be too messy. Every day is a good day to cover the world in love. Why not today?
One of my favorite quotes I have seen lately.
“Come live in my heart, and pay no rent.” – Samuel Lover
Celebrate the day! Here’s an imperfect rose just for you. We’ll call it special and without equal. Like you.
