Happy Valentine’s Day! It is probably the most often shared greeting today.
As many people celebrate V-Day, there are equally many who dislike it. “I don’t celebrate V-Day, what a ridiculous idea!” I heard someone saying.
There are probably hundreds of reasons why some people do not want to join the V-Day party. Singles – because they feel awkward celebrating the ‘people in love’ day. Some couples – because they don’t like the idea of celebrating love on one specific day, once a year. Others – just contest the commercial side of it.
But…why don’t we make it a SELF-LOVE celebration day?
Osho, a great philosopher and spiritual leader, said: “A man who loves himself takes
the first step to real love. A man who loves himself finds that there is no ego in him.
It is by loving others without loving yourself, trying to love others, that the ego arises.“
Self-love means we are truly connected with ourselves. We know who we are, we know we’re worthy.
It gives us strength and self-confidence. It encourages us to make choices that are best for us.
Self-love helps us to open up to the world, to not afraid of connecting with others on a deeper level.
And we do it to share experience, emotions, thoughts, not to seek approval.
Self-love is sexy. It makes you glow. It makes you attractive, interesting and appealing.
The self-love I’m talking about is not egocentric. On the contrary – the more you love yourself, the more you can
share your compassion and love with others. True self-love is contagious.
When you love yourself, you know you are enough.
Happy SELF-LOVE Day 🙂
