It’s Valentine’s Day! For some it sparks joy, for others it may bring dread.
Some of you may feel like avoiding social media so you don’t have to see all the Valentine’s Day posts.
On Valentine’s day I reckon you’ll see as many pro posts as you will con posts.
For those that are thinking of posting a negative valentines day post think of this……
What is Valentine’s Day
Let me start by saying, I’m not a big believer in Valentine’s Day because I think it’s just another ‘hallmark holiday’ that has been overcome by consumerism. Why is the mark of our society or of our Love the gifts we buy for each others? It is more about the time we spend, the things we say and our actions. Neglecting these aspects cannot be solved with gifts. They may be in the short term but in the long term they can’t.
Now back to my early thought, that if you are considering posting on social media a negative comment or a woe is me for being alone on Valentine’s Day, consider this….
What you put out to the universe you receive back. By focussing on what you don’t want that is what continues to perpetuate.
Focus on you!
So focus on yourself today. Say I love myself, I love my life, wouldn’t it be nice to have a wonderful partner to share this with.
And treat yourself. Receiving love starts with giving love. I know you may say ‘but I need someone to give love to.’
No you don’t. You have yourself. Love yourself, truly for who you are at whatever point you may be at on your life’s path. Continue that and soon someone will come into your life that will love you more than you ever imagined possible.
Don’t be cynical and say ‘oh that’s alright for you, you’re in a relationship’
For it wasn’t always that way. I was single for many years. I had my heart closed off to love for a while but as I slowly started to talk to my self better around love, that I was worthy and deserving of it that’s when things really changed.
So happy Valentine’s Day to everyone out there. Whatever your relationship status.
P.s. use this as a reminder to show your partner more often how much you care not just today but everyday, express it, it doesn’t always have to be a gift, flowers, things etc. Love is our actions, maybe washing that cup when your finished, not leaving clothes around, maybe closing that door that bugs your other half when you leave it open all the time, whatever it may be.
Namaste. Love to all
