Happy Valentine's Day 2013



 
Happy Valentine's Day!


On this day of losing heads and bursting hearts, remember this...

"What goes unexplored / unknown, manifests as fate." 
(To paraphrase Carl Jung.)

Part of loving yourself is knowing yourself.  Really knowing who you are requires recognizing your internal conflicts, your unexplored talents, your unhealed traumas, your negative as well as your positive life experiences; requires recognizing your own wounds and seeking healing.

The parts of you that go unexplored, that remain unknown will come up again and again as life experiences until you deal with them, bring them to light, acknowledge them and let them fly away.

Part of loving yourself is knowing yourself, all parts of yourself, the piercing beak and razor claws as well as the rosy feathers. 

Know yourself as you really are and love yourself, all of yourself.

Happy Valentine's Day!
