Happy Valentines Day ❤ beautiful people.
Today has passed me by this year, I really haven’t stopped to give Valentines much thought or appreciation, and this has got me reflecting…
Having failed to stay in a deep and loving relationship over the years, I’ve become clear that love will develop best for me when I’ve made my own happiness the top priority. This means fully becoming the person I want to be.
I’m in a transitional stage in my life right now, I’ve come a long way emotionally, living much more consciously and I’m far more connected to the path I want to follow in life, a path centred on real values that make me proud. However, there are also aspects of my life that aren’t where I want them to be and are demanding a lot of my internal attention and energy right now:
Physically there are scars from my past that I still haven’t overcome and I am still working hard on, (I will share this with you, but it’s a topic for another time). I want to keep investing in myself to help bury this issue but having not taken a pay cheque for some time, I am not where I want to be financially.
These things weigh on my mind and in focusing hard on them, I’ve unconsciously become very selfish with my time. It’s clear that right now my priority has to be on me and enhancing the aspects of my life that are weighing me down. While I am still working on my own self love and giving so much of my energy elsewhere, I won’t be giving a partner all of who I am and what they truly deserve.
I read the following quote today which sums it up beautifully: “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, loving someone deeply gives you courage. Loving the person you have become gives you everything”. So there we have it, this year Valentine’s Day is my own day, but in deepening the connection and love I have for myself, I’m already excited about what the 2019 Valentines Day has in store!
I hope you all have a great day and that you share the love you have within for the special person in your life.
