The month of February marks the start of the season of love. It seems as though every store has a section devoted to showing affection to the one that you love by gifting them a teddy bear, chocolate, jewelry, and roses. During this season as a single woman, you may be struggling to cope and find the “right” relationship. Whether this person is a romantic partner, or a best friend and companion, don’t settle when it comes to love. Often times, we focus on commercial holidays as a sign to tell us when we need to get into a relationship. We, as women, also focus on what society believes is the best age or time to get married and have kids. Do not fear this notion of the ticking biological clock.
Instead of searching for the right person, put yourself first. Relationships need to first begin after each person has become comfortable with himself or herself. There is no person in the world that will be able to complete you if you are already whole. However, when you are whole, you can find someone who complements you well. This year, put the focus back onto yourself and be your own Valentine.
Love yourself instead of putting yourself into a relationship. Now is the time to focus on pure self-love and putting yourself first. This year, 2016, is perfect for you to begin finding ways to be generous with yourself. 2016 is the year of 9. This means that 2016 is the year of completion and generosity. Take a different approach to generosity and focus on being generous with yourself. As women, we tend to focus on being generous with others. We are natural givers which stems from our maternal instincts. Often, we don’t make times for ourselves and begin to feel depleted and go on a journey to find someone to give us love instead of loving ourselves. It is time to give back to yourself, love yourself, and focus on what brings you joy.
It is very appropriate, during the month of love, to focus on loving and being generous with yourself. Switch the focus of this Valentine’s Day to pampering yourself. Celebrate Valentine’s Day and buy yourself champagne, chocolate, and flowers. Spend the day reconnecting with yourself and clearing your mind at the spa. Take this time to do the activities that you want to do. Take a trip anywhere your heart desires or even go on a staycation. Rekindle that love that you have for yourself and focus on you!
And that’s how you live a #SASSYlife!
