“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
US choreographer & dancer (1894 – 1991)
Today is Valentine’s Day, often considered a day for lovers. For those of us newly single on this day we may feel like it is not a day for us, but on this Valentine’s Day I encourage you to challenge that thought and create a new mindset that blesses you and the treasures in your life.
Step 1: Release those who are not blessing your life. My last honey blessed me this Valentine’s with a break up text (a series of them), I blessed myself back with a new phone number. The last thing I needed today was more heartbreaking texts. Today let go of those who behave in ways that break you. You deserve better and will only get better when you create space for that upgrade.
Step 2: Bless Yourself. Today be your own Valentine. Buy yourself your favorite flowers, chocolate, and that piece of jewelry you really want. Or pamper yourself with a pedicure, massage, or a glorious soak in a bubble bath. You are a treasure, do something wonderful for you. Yesterday, after those lovely texts, I left lunch with my best friend and hit the garden center. I filled all the pots on my porches with a beautiful array of spring flowers.
Step 3: Bless Others. There are other people in your life who need to hear that you love them, appreciate them, and/or are grateful for them. Today is the perfect day to release that expression as only you can. So on your way into the office stop by the bakery and pick up treats for you co-workers, take a friend to lunch, make a special dinner for your family. Put your love, appreciation and gratitude into action today and bless the life of others as only you can do. I’ll be stopping by the bakery on my way into the office and I have a special dinner planned for my daughter and I.
Today release those who bring you down, bless yourself, and express your love, gratitude and appreciation of others. You’re expression is unique and blesses those in your life as only you can. Embrace Valentine’s Day with a healthy mindset, use today as a reminder to bless yourself and the treasures in your life.
