Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I know many are trying to figure out if they have what they need for that special person. Then there are those who don’t have to worry about that kind of stuff, because there is no special person to celebrate V-day with anyway. So why do we let such holidays get us down as it pertains to our personal life? Maybe it’s because the certainty in who we are as people can be in question, or maybe the fact is, it does take someone else to validate who we really are.
I want to challenge you to go beyond the thought pattern of needing someone to validate you. I think it’s important to rock your life your way with you in mind – not someone else. Now you may think that sounds selfish – and I would agree. But you can’t do for others what you haven’t done for yourself. So, yes, sometimes it’s OK to be selfish, evaluate what is going on in your life, and what you need to do to make yourself a better person. A better you will attract a better people in your life.
