Valentine's Day is almost here and I have some special things planned to celebrate the holiday with my family. But this year I am also going to take some time in the day to be my own Valentine. The joys and the challenges of caring for others consumes the majority of my time and energy. In the past I have used that as my main excuse for not being able to take better care of myself. So this Thursday I am planning something healthy, a yoga class after work and something really frivolous, painting my toenails. Because our days can get really hectic I know that flexibility is key. So even if the day is one crisis after another and I have to go to my back up plan of a short workout video at home and a few dollops of scented body lotion after my shower, I have vowed that I am going to do this. Deep down I do believe that I am just as deserving of some of the love and attention I so willingly give to others, so why have I been so stingy up until now?
