The ‘Month of Love’ has officially started. Stores luring young lovers with discounts, special spa services, restaurant menus, attractive travel packages and so much more! Perfect date, perfect dress, perfect makeup, perfect gifts – everything perfect. Like really? One needs a day to ‘prove’ his or her love? Sometimes I wonder if Valentine’s day is more about celebrating love or about perfection.
For me love is something that does not need a special day or dress or gift to be celebrated. Infact, why even refer the word ‘valentine’ to a romantic partner? If you really want to celebrate love, why not celebrate yourself? Or the food you love, the smiles you love, the places you love. More than anything, loving yourself is important. The real self – not the fancy you. Just like the pictures below – a bare you, stripped of all things fancy, loving one’s own scars and troubles and life and ultimately finding peace within oneself.
