Today is both Valentine's Day and Ash Wednesday, funny to have two special days fall on the same day. Many find that they may connect to one more than the other, for some, neither may be important. For me, both stir very different emotions within me.
Valentine's Day is a time to remember the ones you love, and I am grateful to have many in my life. However, for those who may have lost someone or never have had the right one, today may be a painful reminder of an empty or broken heart.
Ash Wednesday is a Holy Day that is recognized by Christians as the first day of Lent. This special day marks a season of fasting and spiritual discipline to represent the sacrifice of Jesus.
Regardless of your perspective today, make a commitment to love yourself, recognizing that life is full of many amazing and awful realities but we all have a choice to choose life and love. May your day be a blessing as you take the first step to improve your well-being and love yourself.
