You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy.
So, the good news this Valentine’s Day is that even if you don’t feel you have someone special to love… you actually do. You’ve got the most important person in your life… you’ve got you!
You can be your own Valentine simply by taking better care of yourself and starting a new habit of asking yourself a simple question every day… “What would make me truly happy today?”
Whether or not you are in a romantic relationship, ask yourself, “What would make me truly happy today?” and imagine what you can do to brighten your day. Many of the same acts of kindness we like to do for others are every bit as wonderful when we do them for ourselves… such as thoughtfully making a favorite beverage, finding a favorite book, or going to a special place at sunset. You can even get yourself something whimsical and fun as a special token and reminder of love.
Let this Valentine’s Day be extra special for yourself this year, and know that when you feel loved by yourself, you are truly brightening the world.
