I’m part of that group, but I’m not complaining
much. I choose to use this week to celebrate my very best Valentine of all: Me!
Sure, it would be nice to have someone buy me flowers (though I’d rather have him till up my flower beds–that’s romantic, in my book!), or someone to take me out to a nice romantic dinner (or wash my car), but those are surface-dwellers. Most of the actions that say I love you are things we can and should do for ourselves regularly.
It’s not that hard, really. Here’s my short list:
♥ I’m doing nice things for myself, every single day.
♥ I’m speaking lovingly to myself. That was one awesome plank! was today’s whispered sweet nothing. My heart is still going pitter-patter over that one.
♥ I’m taking myself for long walks and listening to “my songs”, the ones that make me smile at memories past.
♥ I might even write myself a love note or two.
Simple actions that serve to remind me of the importance of treating myself kindly and respectfully, so that I can, in turn, treat others in the same way. It’s a nice celebration of Valentine’s Day.
There will be a bit of chocolate in there too, but you’ll have to wait until my next post for that.
What are you doing this week to celebrate Valentine’s Day and be you own best Valentine?
