Today is the day we celebrate the heart! It comes at an interesting time for me this year, since my heart is currently broken. I can feel how I want to slip into resignation about this day and just get it over with and try to ignore everyone's love messages...and my own breaking heart. To do so would be to disown my own heart. Instead, I'm choosing to go deeper in. To stay with myself and with what's in my heart: loss, fear, loneliness, and - the favorite thing I find there - deep and abiding self love.
It's that self love that will guide how I do Valentine's Day this year. I will stay with myself, even if it's hard. I will cook myself a favorite meal. Hold my own hand. Feel it all and invite it to the table. I will dance my *ass* off. I will see clients that I love and bring my heart to them fully. And I will set aside special time to review and honor my past loves and what I've learned with them.
Today is my chance to be on a most loving date with myself. And if I can't do that for myself, how could anyone else do it for me?
Leave me a comment and let me know how you're celebrating your own heart this year.
