It seems like everywhere I go people are putting up the Valentine’s Day decorations. It’s a beautiful holiday and I’ve loved it ever since I was a little kid. I really enjoyed sending those simple little valentines to everyone in my class when I was in grammar school. It was a lot of fun deciding who got which card. I enjoyed being able to give something to everyone. It felt like a big project and I just loved all those hearts! I still do!
One thing that’s not fun about Valentine’s Day is when people get really attached to how it should be celebrated or how it shouldn’t be celebrated. Those shoulds can create a lot of distress.
Sometimes it seems like people feel that either they should idolize their sweetheart or their sweetheart should idolize them – and then if they don’t have a sweetheart there’s something missing. It can feel like a lose-lose proposition.
I appreciate this quote from A Course in Miracles:
Worshipping false idols is a road of suffering. Been there, done that, many, many times and I really would like to believe that I’m complete with it!
How about you??
I choose the Truth that sets me free!
Stop Playing Small
