Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. I subscribe to the philosophy that we love the ones we love EVERY DAY. While I think it’s lovely that people go a bit crazy, it’s not something I feel I need to do. Or to receive. So if you are like me, and find yourself minus flowers and chocolate and ‘fluff and fuss’ on Valentine’s Day – think of the people you love and who love you and how you can show them that tomorrow, or next week, or some random Tuesday in June.
One thought I DO subscribe to is making sure you are on your own list of ‘loved ones’. Loving yourself is more important than I can ever stress. We spend so much time thinking of the things we don’t have, can’t do, are not being – that we forget to really love who we are. Do something today that is special FOR YOU. Have the glass of wine, use the nice shower gel, light the nice candle when you eat dinner etc. Because a big part of being committed to a healthier life is VALUING yourself.
