It's an amazing and powerful feeling to love and be loved. Our hearts fill with gratitude and we are able to do more, be more and reciprocate that awesome feeling.
True love can also challenge us endlessly and force us to be better versions of ourselves. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but to understand true love, we must be willing to unmask our pain and sorrow. To receive love, we must be willing to give it first, and to ourselves first. That is in itself is quite confronting, because it requires us to love the parts of ourselves we might want to hide.
Valentine’s Day (or any day for that matter!) is a special time where we get to celebrate LOVE. And if you’re on your own for the time being, it’s a great time to remember self-love and do something special just for you!
“When love beckons to you follow him, though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings unfold you, yield to him, though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you, so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth, so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, so shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.”
