Melania's Healing Edge
Love Yourself First!
As Valentine's day approaches, it has me reminiscing on the Valentines of the past. When I was growing up, my Mom became a widow and refrained from dating to grieve. And she would lament every Valentine's Day. The women in her life encouraged her to move on and to date. She remained alone many years but did eventually find a really good man. They dated for 10 years. From an early age, I noticed, everyone didn't have a valentine on Valentine's day. Most of the women I knew in my community were single Mothers. They took care of each other. I would often notice the sadness in each Woman's eyes as my Mother received flowers at work on Valentine's day. They would hide their true emotions behind a natural appreciation for flowers, but i noticed. My Mom would leave the flowers at work so the women could all enjoy. But, after my Mother's break up, she went back to feeling lonely on Valentine's Day. At the age of 25~ I vowed to be her forever Valentine. Now, it matters none whether she is single or in a relationship, I send her a card, flowers, or phone her just to say Happy Valentine's Day Mom; because I know it makes her happy. In her single widowed years, I saw my mom become her own valentine and she showed me how to love myself without the assistance of a man. I am forever grateful. I am single by choice so February is self love month for me. I'm my own valentine. Should I receive a valentine, I wouldn't mind, but not having one isn't gonna make nor break me. In my journey into self empowerment, I have learned a few things or two about self love that I have shared with my mom. Combined with the ways she taught me, I came up with a list of 11 powerful acts of self love that we live by. I share them with you today in the hopes it will resonate. Happy Self Love month!
