It is almost Valentine’s Day again – the day we send our sweethearts love letters, bonbons, flowers and other gifts. I like to think of Valentine’s Day as a good moment to be conscious of love in general. I believe that love is what life is all about. For the past while, I’ve been focusing more on opening my heart, so around this time, I will be devoting even more attention to this (both consciously and unconsciously). In the past, I built a wall around myself that has slowly started to disappear over the last few years. This has allowed me to accept love more easily. I’m kind to myself now and that’s what drives me. And, oh my! How good it is. Love helps me grow and blossom and brings out the best in me. I’m able to allow people and situations in and, in doing so, I open myself up to so many wonderful things.
So, this is why I like to think that this time of year isn’t only about giving each other gifts, but also about taking a moment to recognize what love means to you and how big your heart is. Follow your heart and be open to what comes your way without any fear at all. Help people. It opens your heart even more. And, it’s also true what they say – one of the ways to a person’s heart is through their stomach (haha!) so have a look below at my 3 very favorite Valentine’s Day recipes. ; )
Happy Valentine’s day!
