Valentine’s day is a day to rejoice in the beauty of love. Love is all around us, all the time. Learning to open the heart and mind to allow the beauty of this world to be appreciated is key to a life of happiness and bliss. Here are three tools to practice embracing love in your life.
Love Yourself More.
It sounds simple, but is not always easy. The relationship we have with ourselves is the foundation of how available we will be to loving others and allow others to love us. How you see yourself is quite often how you will see the world. Take time each day to take action in loving yourself. Take a walk with yourself in nature, a hot bath, spend time making a special meal for yourself, take a trip to the salon, whatever sounds good to YOU. The important thing is to spend time cultivating a relationship with you. Make a date and stay committed, just as you would if you made a commitment to another person.
