You may have seen my daughter and me working on our V Day projects. I was working on this jewelry armoire that, of course, I had to paint pink. Valentine’s day isn’t only about romantic love, but also all the other types of love we should be sharing daily: friendship, pets, self-love, family love, platonic love, joyful love, love that is unconditional, love that has no strings attached, only for the well being of that person. I wish the world had more love. There would be less violence, pain, suffering, and evil. Once you cannot love, your life is empty, without meaning.
I work nonstop. Every day there is something that must be done. It prevents me from feeling the love I have from so many of you. I seldom stop to enjoy what I have. Slow down, breathe, be in the moment. I am trying to be different this year. It started rocky, but I am trying to be the best I can be. There will always be those who do not love me. Trying to prove myself to them is futile. Who I should be. I should be validated and caring about what they think, is ME. Self-love. The most elusive of them all. Why do we feel guilty for loving ourselves? We are embarrassed to say, I love my eyes. I love my hair. I love my accomplishments. I love my heart. I love everything about myself. Happy Valentine’s Day. I challenge you today to say what you love about yourself. I challenge you to tell someone what it is. You are all amazing with unique aspects that make you irreplaceable. Remember, loving yourself allows the love of others enters your heart. Don’t close off your heart. You are loved.
I used Rustoleum’s Champagne Pink, Chrome Pink, Sunlit Brass, and Chrome Red for the blended finish. It is embellished with Woodubend’s Mouldings. I love how they do anything special. I used Hokus Pokus transfers Cage a Oiseaux, Spring Blossoms, and Roses Merveilleuses. She is sweet as candy.
