Madly in Love with Me Day

textgram_1486958591.pngIt seems like the whole month of February is filled with hearts and chocolates and flowers… or at least the ads for them. While I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, I do like the idea of celebrating love. Celebrating our love of others is fine as long as we don’t get attached to the idea that we have to have someone outside ourselves to love or that we are only worthy of love if we have a significant other in our lives.

Madly in Love with Me Day is celebrated annually on February 13 and was established by self-help guru Christine Arylo, author of “Madly In Love With ME, The Daring Adventure To Becoming Your Own Best Friend”. The philosophy behind her message, which is targeted to women but can apply more broadly to anyone in society, is that we cannot truly love others without loving ourselves fully. This is true, too, of compassion, gratitude, and joy — the sources of all of these is within each of us and resides in the true Self. Yoga can help us tune in to the true Self.

Remind yourself whenever you need to today that you can love yourself.

xoxo,

Debra
