"Party of 1 Please"

Today is February 14th and I guess I should start out by saying HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!  
For some reason instead of V day reminding me about the typical story of a person receiving flowers, chocolates and going to a fancy dinner with a pre-fix menu, I am reminded of another type of love. A love that should be the easiest to have but yet most of us never have it. A love that holds the key to giving us everything we want and yet we look for it elsewhere. I am referring to the love of oneself. As a life coach I see a recurring theme in my clients. The lack of knowing who you really are, the courage to claim it to the world, and the act of loving yourself.
"As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health: food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism.
Today I know it is "LOVE OF ONESELF" -Charlie Chaplin
A big part of self love is understanding and acceptance. Get to know yourself . Date yourself, alone time is necessary to hear what you are really thinking and feeling.  Disclaimer: You will learn things about yourself you may not like. BUT LOVE THEM ANYWAY! 
Once you learn about yourself and find your voice do not be afraid to share it with the world. You will see the universe has a funny way, as when you are truly aligned with your true self,
 the positivity and what you are seeking will magically find you.
So today if you find yourself as a "party of 1" rejoice in it! Celebrate it, own it, adore it. 
Radiate all the self-love today and everyday,
