She Follows Her Heart Shrine

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I know that for some of us this day is very romantic, exciting, hot, loving…. I also know that for many more of us, it is depressing, disappointing, lonely, & vulnerable-feeling.

What I would like to propose for everyone is that it simply be a day for LOVE. And, no, you don’t have to fall into the media’s stereotypical image of love, which usually involves lots of candlelight, diamonds, sexy lingerie, kissing….et al, which is actually very beautiful & fabulous if you have it!!! It’s wonderful. However, life is not always in that spot for us on Feb. 14 & I’m here to say that that’s OK.

What I would like to offer to you is that the idea of LOVE can be more than just romantic love. There are all kinds of love available. There’s Mother-Love (& Father-Love,too.) There’s friendship love, animal love, volunteering love, family love, children’s love, spiritual love & so many, many more types of  love, the most important one, in my opinion, being SELF-LOVE. Because once you have that, no one can take that away from you!  And, yes, I know that that is not always the easiest of things to do. “I feel guilty; I don’t have time, that’s selfish, there’s too much to do, I’m too fat, I’m not worth it”, and on and on and on. But again, once we learn to accept ourselves, exactly as we are today, in this body, this skin-type, this neighborhood, this LIFE, we can begin, if only just begin ,to truly love ourselves. You know, Our Divine Creator made us one-of-a-kind–there’s no one else in the world exactly like us? One of my favorite quotes, by Oscar Wilde, is: “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

And so today, on this Valentine’s Day of love, if you have someone, anyone, to love & to be loved by, take it….appreciate it. And if you don’t, (and you probably do if you really think about it,) just give out a little bit extra….. first to yourself, & then to somebody else. I guarantee you’ll feel better after you’ve done it! Love makes the world go ’round……..so don’t save it all up, there’s plenty more where that came from! Just do it!!! Show up for your beautiful life, & sprinkle glitter as you’re doing it (no one can resist glitter–trust me; I know! After all, I AM the GLITTER GYPSY!)

Love & Peace to all of my followers!

Luv,

Glitter Gypsy
