Hey there, it's Kathryn and happy Valentine's Day!

Today's Q & A is an answer to what I did when I had my lonely Valentine's Days, and I hope it will help you, too


Have a great one!

love,
Kathryn

Q:  Kathryn, you mentioned that you suffered through many lonely Valentine's Days, but right before your husband came, you made it into a day of hope. Can you tell me how you did that?

A: It was a process of gaining more faith. I accepted that for the time being, I was single, but affirmed that I would soon have Valentine's Day with my One. (And what I'd add for you is the reminder that once you're with your soulmate, it will make up for every lonely Valentine's Day you've had.)

Next, I would make sure to send some love to my guy on February 14th, wherever he was in the world (In hindsight, I now know he was not far away & looking for me, too).

Finally, I bought him a card that I knew I would one day give him. (Sure enough, I did give it to him: on our wedding day. And he shed a tear over it!) 

I suggest you do the same: send some love and buy your One a card or gift for future delivery. It's a great act of faith, and I"ll bet it'll make you feel good, as it did for me.

I bless you for using this day to hasten your journey into the arms of love.

Are you single and kind of dreading Valentine's Day? You are not alone. I have tons of emails every year from people in your same boat so take comfort from that. I'd like to help by reminding you of the following:

1. Valentine's Day was created by a chocolate company! It is a manufactured holiday and while, yes, it's fun to send love reminders to people, it is JUST ANOTHER DAY. When you are in love, you celebrate regularly and don't need a special day to remind you. And when you're single, you may think, "bah, humbug!" and that's just fine.

2. The majority of Valentines and even flowers go out to non-sweethearts. More flowers and remembrances are sent and received by students, teachers and family members than by romantic partners. So claim this holiday for YOU whether you've met a romantic soulmate or not. And remember that there are non-romantic soulmates such as pets, parents, friends, children and even siblings so tap into that love energy which connects you to the same unconditional love that you will feel when you come together with your One.

3. Make a point to send out love to the soulmate you haven't met yet. Buy them a card to give them later or spend a few moments thinking of them and sending a message to them on the inner.

4. Every one of us has been the only office worker NOT to receive flowers on an occasion. This day is in NO way a competition to see if you're loved or not. Of COURSE you are! So remove your ego from being in such a competition and if anyone wants to rub it in, feel bad for them that they would need to resort to such a low vibe.

5. When you are with your One, it will make up for EVERY bad Valentine's day you ever had. If this one isn't that great, it will get healed in the future, I promise!

Have a good one, and I bless you for love beyond your wildest dreams!


love,
Kathryn
