This day is also about heart and the true sense of having one. You take and make time for your family members and friends, yet do you create a space in the day just for you? If yes, then you may be in the minority.
Perhaps you feel there isn’t enough time to languish upon yourself or that it’s folly to be self-indulging. But for a moment, just for a moment, imagine how you would feel or what it would be like to take a few minutes—or longer—to be alone with just you and your thoughts. What came up for you? What immediately came to my mind was the image of me luxuriating in a tub of suds and bubbles, surrounded by lit candles and music playing softly in the background.
Do I take the time for myself in this way? No, not in the tub; however, in other ways, yes, I do.
On this day of love, take time out for yourself first before all others. I promise that if you do, your Valentine’s Day will be like no other.
From my heart to yours,
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
