So this will be the first time I am writing an actual love note to you on Valentine’s day. I think what a lot people get caught up in the idea that if you are single you can’t enjoy this day. I made a pledge a couple of years ago that the years going forward it is about self-love… 

I truly believe that to wholeheartedly love others you need to love yourself. It is possible to start loving yourself through the eyes of those that love you but there is no true love than the one you have for God and yourself. It might sound a bit conceited but have you ever taken the time to really think about this?

This valentine’s day, if you are single take the time to think about love differently. I really love Valentines Day and I always will, single or taken - I believe it is a great reminder of the love we give and receive. This year, I wanted to really talk about self-love and the power that lies within it. Stop being afraid of loving you, you have so much to discover about yourself that no person or man will ever see other God and you, so discover you and learn to love you.

This year, really take the time, to love you! And I do not mean this on a superficial level but I mean this on a spiritual, emotional and mental level. Really take the time, to take care of your mind, body and soul. There is no better reward than a human being that takes care of themselves. I have loved people who did not know how to accept love because they were incapable of loving themselves. I’ve also once, a few years ago have been the person who could never really accept true love because I did not know what it meant to be loved, but once you take the power of loving yourself, you are able to make better decisions not only for you but others. You will also begin to recognise a beautiful being, soul like you is worth being loved in every single inch and corner, from your strengths to weaknesses - you will be begin to see that you are beautiful! 

I learnt and practised this and I have never been happier.

 Someone who loves themselves cannot be half loved because they have so much love to give than to receive love wholeheartedly. So learn this, learn to love yourself and reap the benefits that come with it. Be the person you’ve always dreamt of being now!

Happy Valentine’s Day my loves! 
Sending the warmest love, hugs and kisses all around the world just to you
