Valentine’s day does tend to polarise – either you cynically sneer at commercialised romance or you’ve got the pink champagne on ice! Oh wait, perhaps there’s another Valentine’s type – outwardly proclaiming romance is dead whilst secretly wishing for a gazillion red roses to land at the door. Which one is you?
If I’m honest, I’ve always been a flowers, cards and romantic gestures kinda’ gal (although I’m practical and realise I simply haven’t got enough vases for a gazillion roses!). However, time has shown me that romance really can go nowhere if you don’t nourish the most enduring relationship you’ll ever have – you know this right? But it can be so tricky to get this one right and many of us worry about being selfish or feel guilty to take time and resources to care for ourselves. It’s definitely not selfish though, it is simply about “fitting your own oxygen mask before helping others”.
And, the naked truth is, that it’s really a tragic love story if we wait until we’re broken and spent, with nothing more to give. Instead be your own valentine; rekindle your heart fire and renew your commitment to living your most enlivened life so you can give love most generously.
