During the many seasons of my self love journey, I spent numerous days meandering the New Jersey coastline. While combing the beach in Bay Head, New Jersey during the spring of 2018, I came across these sea shells arranged in a heart. My meditation spots are chosen randomly, yet that evening I was guided towards this specific area. While trying to find a quote to tie into the photo above, the first one I stumbled upon was this: "the best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our mind." Apparently it's from The Notebook, which yes, I've reluctantly seen. What if we stripped away the romantic/hollywood aspect of it and applied it to ourselves? Has a much different tone to it now if you ask me.

We tend to focus on Valentines Day as this holiday that celebrates couples and relationships. Meanwhile there’s a whole society of single people out there, mustering through their own shit and inner emotions. The day can be triggering for some people. For me personally, I’ve worked through a lot of the hidden meaning behind it and now look at valentines day as just another day. A day to celebrate if you’re in a happy, loving, healing, evolving relationship and also a day to celebrate if you're happy being with your bad assery single self. 

This love yourself poem is my dedication for all the people living life as single.

valentines day

who’s to say

that being single is so bad

and having no-one is so sad

the relationships you see

aren’t always full of glee

be happy that you’re single

and not stuck with some dingle

draw yourself a bath

or take the netflix path

and celebrate this day

by living life your way

eat a warm baked cookie

or find yourself a wookie

spend some time in nature

or climb an ancient glacier

be mine

you’re so fine

damn little candy heart

just makes me want to fart

buy yourself a card

and mail it to your yard

buy yourself a flower

and reclaim your fucking power

why do you want to kiss

a prince who’s just a miss

why do you want a queen

who’s fixed on being mean

valentines day

who’s to say

that being single is so bad

and having no-one is so sad

so cry if you may

but remember on this day

that everything you need

are in these words for you to heed

happy valentines day love ...
