It probably would never work.
My idea for a new holiday.
It would be like Valentine’s Day, but the focus wouldn’t be on expressing our love towards a significant other.
It would be on expressing our love towards our significant self.
It often feels so much easier to extend love outward than it does inward, doesn’t it? To shower others with the cards and the candy and the flowers and the fancy dinners. But to shower our self with such objects of affection?
It’s too bad. Because we are equally worthy to receive from ourself the same love we are far more comfortable giving to others.
Perhaps when asking others to be your Valentine, maybe you could ask yourself as well?
Self love is never optional.
