For lovers in love, for broken hearts and those seeking love, Valentine’s day can be a anything between joyful, inconsequential or trying.
Has anyone noticed that merely being in a romantic relationship is not the recipe for happiness and fulfillment?
On this Valentine’s day I invite you to consider being first a Valentine for yourself, relating to yourself in a special way with tenderness and deep caring. Perhaps you’ve been a stranger to yourself or to parts of yourself. Perhaps you are starting a friendship or already have a deep connection.
Would you take a moment today to PAUSE and be silent?
-Tune in, allowing your breath to center you and draw your attention to yourself through your body
– Say a real sincere inwardly ‘Hello’. How are you in this moment? Take your time. See what arises.
-Check inside: am I happy? Is something bothering me? Am I truly okay just being me? Am I first in my life? Do I take enough for me so that I have enough to offer others?
Notice what arises. Just be with it.
Here’s a song to play and sing along to yourself this Valentines’ Day before you reach outward to wish anyone else a happy Valentine’s Day.
(It’s about 3 minutes long and kind of indicates the era I was raised in!)
A Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you, my readers!
