So St Valentines’ Day rolls round again. I’ve never been much of a fan. All that forced romance and vast expense.

I tend to think that when you love someone you should say it and show it often, not just on 14th February.

We can show love in many different ways to those around us. Spending time with those we love, listening to them. Making sure they eat well and get enough sleep. Doing something they enjoy with them.

We do that because we love them for who they are.

And that applies to us too. You’re not perfect but do you love yourself for who you are? Do you show that by giving yourself space to relax? By thinking about what you eat? By getting enough rest? By allowing yourself the time to do something you really enjoy? By talking to someone about what really matters to you?

How about this year you start to show yourself some love?

In the words of the great George Benson (and Whitney, but I’ve always preferred George’s version) “learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all”.
