Will I Be My Valentine?

As I’m sure you know, Tuesday, February 14 is Valentine’s Day. Jewelry stores, candy makers and florists have suggestions for gifts we can buy for our Valentine.

But how would our lives look if we decided to be our own Valentine? If our best friend came to us and described a challenging situation in their life, we would most likely counsel them in compassion and unconditional love. Do we treat ourselves with the same love and compassion?

We know that, as Alan Cohen says, “there is no future in the past.” We must stay out of resentment and regret, recognizing that every experience in our past was there to bring us a blessing and quite possibility give us the opportunity for a lesson. But when something comes up, do we also feel that?
