Be Your Own Valentine

“When we fall in love with someone, we are also falling in love with aspects of ourselves that we see reflected in that person.

We may feel that our loved one has qualities that we don’t have, but those qualities exist in us too and are as yet undiscovered or undeveloped.

Shakti Gawain, Reflections in the Light, New World Library, 2003

Today, think of each person you love and imagine him or her as a mirror, reflecting your own beauty and lovability.

The more you can love yourself through these reflections, the more you can truly love and appreciate others.”
Shakti Gawain
