Every year my daughter, Jillena, creates a new Valentine, from an annual photo shoot with her daughter.
Each year she chooses a picture from the photo shoot to create a unique Valentine's card.
The picture above is my daughter Jillena and her daughter, Starlee, from their 2017 Valentine.
Jillena sends her Valentines to over 200 friends, both male, and female.
Along with the card, she sends a message, which goes something like this:
"You're getting this card because you're special to me. I love you! When I was young my mother (Angeline) would give me a Valentine's card every year and tell me that she loved me. She explained that I didn't need a boyfriend to give me a card, because she loved me. Now, I'm passing that same love along to you. You don't need a lover to give you a card, or candy or flowers, to show that you are lovable. If you want candy or flowers to celebrate this day, I encourage you to give them to yourself. But, please know that you are loved, just as you are!"
"You are lovable, just as you are!
I've heard it said that before you can love someone else, you must first love yourself.
I'm not sure if that's true, but I do believe it's hard to allow someone else to love you if you don't believe you're lovable.
With my whole heart, I want you to know you ARE valuable, worthy of love and respect, and deserve to be loved and supported.
Even if you're not perfect...because none of us are perfect... and we don't need to be perfect to be loved!
We just need to be a human being.
So let me be the first to tell you, this Valentine's Day...I love you!
What steps can you take to let yourself know you have value and that you're lovable?
Do you say nice things to yourself, or are you self-critical?
Do you treat yourself better or worse than you treat your friends and family?
Do you show yourself respect and do regular self-care?
Do you set boundaries about how you allow others to treat you?
