On Valentine’s Day and always...

Think about what is right for you - You may choose to keep traditions the same, change them, or not partake. All these choices are okay! Well-meaning loved ones may invite you to be with them. You can try it out, stay as long as you wish, and/or take a raincheck. It is okay to have some time in your own head or even in silence. Going to nature might be a wonderful spot to be with yourself and reflect. Even on a cold day, it can feel other-worldly to experience the sun on your face. And, in nature humans can experience something bigger than them.

Your loved ones are a part of everything you do as they are a part of you. As you go through life, taking one breath at a time and putting one foot in front of the other, it is normal and natural to think of your loved ones. Tell stories about them. People who care about you may be afraid that if they talk about your loved one, they will make you sad. Elicit stories from your family and friends and reassure them that you are thinking of your loved one all the time anyway. Maybe you will also want to look at and show pictures from the past. These pictures have captured some beautiful moments in time.

Love yourself. You are worthy of love. Think about how much your dear loved one loved you! Try not to be harder on yourself than you would another person. It is okay to treat yourself to something healthy that feels good to you. Some ideas are a massage, bath, special coffee or food treat, yoga/exercise, meditation, journaling, reading, movie watching, etc. You know yourself best. Pick something special just for you!

Remember, love is eternal. The love you have for your loved one and the love he/she has for you transcends time. The tie and bond you have with your loved one can never be broken. Your loved one will always be a part of you. Together you are pieces of a greater whole.
