Mantra of the week: Love YOU
This weekend there was a plethora of love for significant others, lovers, partners, and family, which is always a beautiful thing. Whatever feeling you may have about Valentine’s Day, it is a time to appreciate and acknowledge your love for those in your life. Yes, it can be dominated by consumerist messaging and filled with expectations from others if you let it, BUT it also has the ability to be another moment to tell those in your life how special they are. There is a caveat to that thought… to truly appreciate those in your life, it has to start with self-love.
This week, when you come to the mat make sure you love yourself! That allows you to truly appreciate and love those in your life. It doesn’t mean you are perfect and that you never make mistakes when it comes to relationships. What is does mean is that you acknowledge your attributes and how they contribute to meaningful and loving connections. There is a great image going around right now that defines the word FLAWSOME- (adj.) an individual who embraces their “flaws” and knows they’re awesome regardless. So go out and exude your flawsomeness!
Run. Yoga. Be.
