Since I'm dedicating this V-day to encouraging connection and nourishment of SELF, I've created my V-day wish list! Of course, Max is my Valentine and he has a great gift heading his way, but my ultimate Valentine - the one that has been most consistent in my life - is myself.
It's important to honor that we come into this life alone and we will leave alone. Therefore, whomever comes and goes along the journey will be cherished, but the basic connection with self cannot take a backseat.
If you find yourself alone this holiday, in partnership, married to work, a parent, or on a journey of discovering autonomy, don't forget to give yourself something special. It's the most important relationship you will ever have in this lifetime.
