Why I Want You to Write a Love Letter this Valentine’s Day

I want you to write a love letter to yourself this Valentine’s Day. Why? Because you deserve it.

How often do you acknowledge yourself and how wonderful you are? How often do you demonstrate self-love?

If you’re anything like me, I’m sure it’s easy to forget.

This morning, I sat down and wrote myself a love letter. I was surprised because it was partially a list of character traits I was grateful for and a list of changes I want for myself- to be more present, to be less future focused, to enjoy the moment. I was surprised how much I appreciate myself for my wisdom, intuition, and big heart. As I wrote all of these things down, I felt my heart grow bigger and felt a lot of self-compassion.

If you can give any gift to yourself this Valentine’s Day, write yourself a love letter. Sit down, and put your heart, your mind, and your soul into it and see what comes up.

And if it’s hard to write yourself a love letter, do it for someone else. It’s easy to buy chocolates or flowers on this holiday, but it’s much harder to open up and be vulnerable.

So give this a try. Let me know how it goes.

Happy Valentines Day!

Love (because I have a ton of it to give),
