Healing Lesson of the Day

<previous> 02/14 <next>
Happy Valentine's Day! Love is in the air. Valentine's Day is a holiday filled with romance, candy hearts, candlelit dinners, sweet talk, and other gushy stuff. Sadly, Valentine's Day can also be a sad day. Lonely hearts often dread Valentine Day celebrations. The day can be especially difficult for anyone grieving a loss. But, today does not have to be a couple's holiday to celebrate love. Love comes in many different types of packages, one of which is "self-love."

You can choose to take advantage of Valentine's Day. Use today as an excuse (although you shouldn't need an excuse) to love and pamper yourself. You absolutely deserve love. Everyone does. Capture some of those love-filled helium balloons floating overhead and go out on a date with yourself. Return to a happy place you remember from your past. Visit a special location you've always hoped to go to, but have yet to take the leap. You may simply wish to revisit a memory tucked away deep inside of you rather than going anywhere. Be sure to dress up for the occasion. Even if you are not leaving the house, get cute for yourself! Have some fun. Love yourself first and always.
