It is a day of Love. . . Happy Valentine’s Day. Today, we can celebrate love; whether we’re in a relationship with someone or not. This day is about the love and relationship we have with ourselves, as much as it is about the one’s we love.
Today, do something for yourself. In “The Artist’s Way,” Julia Cameron suggests taking yourself out on a date, or an “excursion.” All friends, family & lovers ~ sorry! This is a time you set aside, just for you. To nurture, inspire and replenish yourself. This might include: (but not limited to) a walk on the beach, going to a movie, writing in your journal in a park, visiting an art gallery, taking a hike in nature, browsing an antique store you’ve been wanting to go to. . . etc.
So many wonderful things are revealed to us in solitude. During that quality time we spend with ourselves; we learn what’s going on in our lives, what we’re avoiding and what we’re really feeling. We get to listen, receive clarity, and feel our soul being fed. And, although your inner voice might try n’ talk you out of it (“I’m broke”. . . “I don’t have time”, etc.), recognize these invasions and the resistance. But here’s the thing: “what we resist, persists.” If we don’t allow for this time of self-intimacy, whatever we’re feeling/avoiding persists. So, think of it as a double whammy ~ you get to take yourself on a fun date and simultaneously, release some of that brain energy/stress!!

Commit to this date and treat yourself! You deserve it.

Much love,
