A day of love
Love, my definition: to accept as is.
Chances are you belong to the majority of people who think that they must earn love. Like you may have when you were a child and felt that mom or dad only loved you if ...
Change the ritual. Use today, the Love Day of the year, to give yourself all the love in the world. Love everything about you, even the parts you want to change. Even the things you did you would rather forget.
To end the day on a love note, try writing yourself a love letter. I say try because I know how emotional you will be to do this exercise. Write it like you would write it to your best friend. Give yourself understanding and compassion. Share your dreams. How do I know this? Because I did it. At the end of my training as a Fearless Living coach, we went through this exercise. It's a way to learn intimacy. How can you accept someone else's words of love if you won't give it to yourself. Keep that letter and read it often.
Have a great Valentine's day.
