Show Yourself Some Love!
It’s that time of year again when we become surrounded by hearts and cupid angels. Although Valentine’s Day typically is a celebration of romance, I prefer to think of it as an extra special day to celebrate love. And while it’s always wonderful to show our love for others, there’s nothing wrong with showing yourself some love!
Let’s think about “Valen-tine” equaling “Value-time.”. A time to value a very important person – YOU! Take a moment this week to acknowledge how very special you are.
A few years ago, a friend shared a wonderful poem with me that perfectly frames the beauty of loving who you are. I hope that you enjoy it, and share it with the other “VIP’s” in your life.
You’re more than your age
Or an hourly wage,
You’re more than your e-mail address.
You’re not just some size
Or the shape of your thighs
Or the make of the car you possess.
You’re more than your PIN
Or the shade of your skin
Or the place you were born or the date.
You’re not your IQ
Or the width of your shoe,
Your zip code, your height, or your weight.
You can’t be defined
By your Zodiac sign
Or the lines in the palm of your hand.
It’s not who you know
Or the money you owe,
Your blood type or cereal brand.
You’re much too complex
For just race, creed, or sex,
You’re wonderfully multidimensional.
With a fabulous mind
And a spirit that’s quite unconventional.
That makes you a treasure
Which cannot be measured
With numbers and checks on a chart.
You’re truly tremendous,
Believe it with all of your heart!
