With all the fuzzy bears, candy hearts, and coconut-cherry filled chocolates, Valentine’s Day can seem pretentious, rather than about appreciating the people you love. Although, I may not receive a fuzzy bear of my own, this is no reason to not like what the day stands for.
Instead, maybe cupid’s arrow is meant for just one heart, rather than two. The one heart that holds and protects ones desires, hopes, and dreams.
I think the most important love is self-love. No one is going to love you, if you don’t love yourself first.
I realize Valentine’s Day is seven days away, but I don’t plan on waiting for one day to love myself. This type of love should occur everyday.
So, write on your own paper heart a sweet something. Keep it safe and remind yourself everyday how special you really are.
Until next time,
