Being Valentine’s Day wanted to focus on the relationships and bonds of people in love. Nowadays everyone loves to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is fun and a loving day for many people who are in a wonderful and happy relationship. I am stressing on ‘happy’ rather than ‘perfect’. No matter what stage you are in, single and having fun, a happy couple, or recovering from a broken heart. May you find happiness in yourself and in your relationship. Let’s take a small journey on love and relationships.
What is the real meaning of Valentine’s Day?
It’s a celebration of love and is an opportunity for us to reconnect with the real meaning of this day. It’s about love, sharing and giving.
What is Love?
Love is the most amazing thing in our lives that is what makes us human and it makes life worth living. Love is much greater than romance.
There are so many things that we can do to bring more love into our lives. We can make this world even better and more beautiful. Love is not a single positivity. It is encompassed by joy, gratitude, serenity, interest, hope, pride, amusement, inspiration, and awe. In the early stages of a relationship, you tend to get deeply interested in anything and everything a person says and does. Amusements and laughter are shared together. As the relationship builds and surpasses your expectations. It gives great joy. Dreams and hopes for the future begin to get shared. As the relationship becomes solid. You sink back into the serenity that comes from the security of mutual love. You are grateful for the joys your loved ones bring into your life.
The first sign of love is interest. You get interested in everything about the person. The next is amusement we start feeling comfortable with the person. And we have the desire to see the silly and look for the good amusing aspects in life. When you love someone who makes you happy. And when you spend time with that person it uplifts your spirits like never before. Love gives hope to a person and they always believe that there is goodness in the world. You tend to hope that your relationship will stand the test of time. Hope can be fragile, but it’s very important when it comes to love.
There are a few things in life that can make us feel at peace. Serenity happens when you are with the person you are in love with. Even if it is chaos everywhere, you feel a sense of calm when you are with the person you are in love with. We should not take anything for granted instead we must be grateful. Pride is thought to be a vice but in love, it’s positive to an extent. Because it helps you express yourself and in a way is a sign of self-confidence. The best kind of love always brings the best in you. Love is one of the amazing things because it always inspires when you are in love, you are in awe with that person. Love is complex, fascinating and very important when it comes to positivity.
Valentine is a fun time where couples do something special. Single people do seek out a Valentine date. Now love has become more commercialized. We have almost forgotten the true meaning of love. Valentine for me means a celebration of love and an opportunity for us to reconnect with the real meaning. It’s about love, sharing and giving. I don’t think we must focus on fancy gifts we give our loved ones. We must focus on what we can give each other. Even if we are single. We need to give ourself time which none of us do. If we are in a fulfilling, loving and happy relationship. I am sure every day will be a valentines day.
This part of the year all over the world almost everyone tries to spend on commercial stuff or spend a fortune to show their merit of love. It should be a day to give selflessly. The key to having a great relationship and a great life is to have a self healthy image and love yourself in a healthy way. Love thy neighbor as thyself. It’s not only a command to be nice to all people around you. It means you should love everything including yourself.
Is there a condition in love? if there is, then love isn’t there anymore. It becomes a business deal. If you love yourself you can love others. If you don’t love others you can never love yourself. Its a circle, love wants to flow freely and fill every aspect of you and your life. If you are trying to please others that’s not love, its false love. In love, there shouldn’t be superiority or inferiority because one sees their soul in the person they love. There is no difference in importance or power. Building love is like building a muscle it should be built and rebuilt on a daily basis.
Life offers you the best because you come across a lot of crossroads every day. Love your life because it offers you to choose the best path. The relationship you have with yourself has a great influence on your life. We have to be special to find the special one. A person’s uniqueness makes them special. Each person has their own style and approach to life. Their personality traits and the way they carry themselves. Self Confidence is one of the most important traits that make you special.
Life is an adventure and so are relationships. We must stop seeking love, approval, or appreciation from anyone. Only then one can live a happy life. There is no need to hide your faults or pretend that they don’t exist. Embrace your true qualities as no expects you to be perfect. Those who are true to themselves will be more attractive. Being real means accepting who you are. And loving yourself as a result only when you love yourself you can begin to love others
On this occasion of Valentine’s Day let’s become more human. And manifest more love in our already magnificent world. Always remember the positive aspects of love. One of the foundations of all successful and happy relationships is communication and listening skill. All relationships have their ups and downs. Romantic love can bring you and your partner together. But at the end of the day, it’s the tiny day to day acts of kindness that helps a relationship to flourish and grow.
Let’s focus form this Valentine on creating a better relationship. Not only with ourselves but also with your partner.”Love does not leave you, but you leave love.”
I wind up with this quote from Lori Gottlieb –
“Dating is about -grand romantic gestures that mean little over the long term
Marriage is about small acts of kindness that bond you over a lifetime”
