Today is Valentine’s Day, a day for love. I do not have a significant other but I am surrounded by love and I am grateful for that. I hope next February I will be celebrating with my True Love but this year it is more about me.
I read a post on facebook about lving yourself, something I have I really opened up to in the past few years. This post said that it would be great if you wrote a Love Letter to yourself. One that says all the things you would love to hear from someone else, or one that simply goes over what you love about yourself.
I think that is a brilliant idea even if you do have a significant other. To truly opne your heart up to love you have for yourself and put it down on paper would be, I think, a fantastic experience. That is why I am doing it this year.
I think my letter will cover what I love about myself as well as what I would love to hear someone else say about me. This is the first time in my life that I have really ever felt loney because I do not have that special someone.
I used to never want that special someone and then I had my husband but the marriage did not work out, which I can see know was for the best. After my divorce I really closed off my heart but then I met Giselle and she broke right through the walls and opened me up to love again. And this time I was opened to pure love.
Now that I have felt the pure love I am ready for passionate romantic love so I can get all mushy and romantic on Valentine’s Day as well as all the other days of the year. This is a weird feeling for me and wanting that love has me now dealing with lonliness.
I know I do not need the love of that special someone to be happy, but I do want it. I am ready for it, I think. Of course the Universe may have other thoughts about that. I know I am meant to have it, I just have to have the patience to wait for it to arrive.
I am filled with so much love and not afraid to share it anymore so I am looking forward to being with my True Love and showering all my love onto her. Until then I have no issues sharing it all with my friends and family. There is plenty to go around.
I hope you are surrounded by love and freely give and receive love. Happy Valentine’s Day.
