My thoughts on love, relationships, and the 14th of February.
Happy belated Valentine’s Day everyone!
I spent the day in the company of my favourite German in the most gorgeous of places– the Paradisus resort in Los Cabos, Mexico (yes, Mexico!)
I’m here doing some promotional social media work for them, and you’ll hear more about it soon.
Here’s what I said:
While I’m blessed to have a built-in travel partner and best friend, it’s important to remember that self-love is the best love to have on this Valentine’s Day.
My husband doesn’t “complete” me, he complements me– we were “whole” people long before we knew the other existed.
We want each other, we don’t need each other. There’s a difference.
So keep on living your best, fullest life, regardless of your relationship status. If you’re looking for a partner to give you purpose in life, you’re likely not ready for a serious, lasting union.
Work on yourself. Engage in activities that bring you joy. Recognize that true fulfillment is not measured in long-stemmed roses or boxes of chocolates gifted on the 14th of February. Treasure your platonic relationships, for your friends and family will be around long after the romance fades.
Stop thinking of marriage as an accomplishment and the mark of a life worth living; understand you need to love yourself first before you can love (or truly be loved) by anyone else.
And realize that your prince or princess may never come and make peace with that knowledge.
Because you are good, smart enough, and strong enough on your own.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours y’all.
