The Love Month
Updated: Mar 2
February is known as the “love” month. It is the month when individuals share romantic
and relationship love on a higher level. Often even familial relationships get extra
attention. Statistics show an extreme increase in gift buying, vacation, and dinner
reservations. All these things are amazing and appreciated, yet are not absolute,
definitive proof of love. Far too many people go home from these outings feeling empty,
unloved, and having little to no sense of being loved.
February’s birthstone is Amethyst. Not only is the Amethyst crystal one of the most
enticing to look at in its purest form, but it is a symbol of love, pureness, and harmony.
Its spiritual (not religious) meaning is groundedness; tranquility and calm.
This month I want you to see yourself this way. As you learn and unlearn; release and
connect, you will begin to find yourself walking out your life Journey in harmony with
yourself and others, being a visible symbol of love. Exhale and relax.
One of the things that intrigue me about the Amethyst crystal is that it will never sparkle
like a diamond because it was not designed to. Yet, in its way and with its
divine purpose, it manifests a unique beauty. Just like you! You were not created and designed to be like anyone else. No matter how beautiful and impressive you see them as. BE YOURSELF. Show us YOUR shine.
REAL SELF LOVE
Millions of people suffer mental health crises this month as they feel
alone and isolated during this “love” month, due to the lack of a “significant other” in their
life. This month, I want to remind each of you to focus on the greatest expression of love
an individual can have and that is “self-love.” I’m not referring to manicures, pedicures,
massages, taking yourself out to dinner and a movie, etc. I’m referring to the strong
level of affection that you have for yourself. The intensely focused purpose that drives
you to accept the awesome person that you are and pursue your happiness,
foremost. Girlfriend, one of the most important gifts that you can give yourself is a foundation upon which you ascend to the highest and healthiest version of yourself. It is a necessity for each of us. We cannot lead a productive and successful life if we do not accept
ourselves, value ourselves, and demand and expect the same from others. Standing firm on
the foundation of self-love, we grow forward. Commit to love and love yourself more. Make yourself your #1 priority. Set aside “me time” and follow through with it. Refresh that dream and start living it. Revisit that vision and manifest it. We are waiting for YOU to reveal the lovely version of yourself.
Let’s go, Girlfriend!
