February Love

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” -Buddha

During this time of year, people experience a whirlwind of emotions regarding relationships and being in love. Not only did we just end a long holiday season spanning from Thanksgiving to New Years, but now we are in the month of love. During this time, we feel compelled to yearn for validated love or have the expectancy that our mate should profess their love for us beyond normal affections. In these fleeting moments, we forget to love ourselves as deeply as we want to be loved by someone else.

This message is just a gentle reminder to not forget to love yourself. It’s okay to share your love with someone else but remember that you are the most deserving of your love. During this season and all year long, continue to practice self-love and self-compassion. Be well and be loved…
