This beautiful card and others like it are on sale just in time for Valentines Day, in an effort to promote more genuine self appreciation.
How about a self-love Valentine this year?
While it may be true that there are certain, say, presidential candidates who don’t need encouragement in this area, most of the people I know could benefit from more sincere self-appreciation.
What if we didn’t just wait, hoping that others might notice we need love and appreciation? What if we had a day to honor the best in ourselves? Well, Terri St. Cloud of Bone Sigh Arts posted this on her blog: “Let’s put the Heart in Valentine’s Day”.
You’ll find some heartfelt examples there. And I bet you can think of people in your own life who deserve more love and credit for goodness than they give themselves.
Let’s give it a try. First, spend a little time considering what you need, and see how you can give yourself more. More peace, more time, more love, more patience; more compassion. And look for ways to share this gift with others who need a little, or a lot, of encouragement to honor themselves.
It just might make the world a better place.

patrise! thank you so much for helping me spread this idea! you are absolutely beautiful! clapping over here!
Lovely, inspiring. Thank you friend.
Most of her cards are lovely, some are cute. But there’s room for more than one “Bone Sigh”! Why don’t you go back to making your cards…adding your words along with pictures? xxxxJoan I would like to go see the new version of Macbeth, the film, when it gets a bit closer than the far N.W. burbs. Interested?

ABSOLUTELY want to see the Fassbinder Macbeth. let’s talk. also, Lady in the Van!
Are you familiar with “Tis you who are are the music, not the song
The song is but a door which, opening wide
Let’s forth the pent up melody inside
Your spirit’s harmony, which clear and strong
Sings but of you. Throughout your whole life long………………………………………” Amy Lowell
I came across this poem a little while ago and it is so beautiful it gives me goosebumps. It has been put to music by Dan Forrest (I believe).
