It’s the Hallmark holiday time of year again and you know what that means.
Well, any number of different things for different people.
Some of us love Valentine’s Day, perhaps if we have someone to celebrate it with, or maybe even those who don’t and just enjoy the idea of it and perhaps a Hallmark movie or two.
And some of us hate it, dread it, only feeling reminded of poor relationship outcomes, or the lack of romantic relationships at all.
But, at the end of the day, as with any other day, Valentine’s Day presents us with another golden opportunity to use the power of gratitude affirmations to take our lives up a notch, so let’s do that together, whether we are celebrating it or not.
It doesn’t matter how you feel about Valentine’s Day to use these to your benefit, which is part of the beauty of these gratitude affirmations. There are so many good applications for them that it doesn’t entirely matter what your perspective is when you practice them. There is a positive outcome available to you if you want it.
So, without further adieu, let’s get started.
Valentine’s Day Gratitude Affirmation #1
I am so grateful for love.
This may seem a little on the nose, but there is a reason it is the #1 gratitude affirmation for Valentine’s Day, regardless of your relationship status.
By practicing a gratitude affirmation for love, you will hopefully feel a feeling of love instilled within you. This primes you to see love in your life in your existing relationships where the trials of life may have clouded your vision before.
It also focuses you on loving others, which is likely one of the best ways to bring love into your life. You are in control of that and reap the rewards on a number of different levels.
It may even prime you to have more love for yourself, which we’ll get into in a bit. Keep reading and stay tuned…
Valentine’s Day Gratitude Affirmation #2
I am so grateful for togetherness.
This may seem like one that wouldn’t apply to those not in relationships on Valentine’s Day, but that is not the case. We are using Valentine’s Day as an excuse to take our lives up a notch, and this gratitude affirmation helps us do that.
Much like how the affirmation for love extends way beyond romantic love, the same is true for togetherness.
You may feel primed for living a life of togetherness with your loved ones, be they family, friends, or romantic, as you practice this affirmation.
As you prime your mind for togetherness, you may find yourself valuing those relationships more and putting the more superficial aspects of life to the side in favor of quality relationships and the things that truly matter.
In any case, more togetherness and love is often a good thing, so you could be well on your way to using Valentine’s Day as a springboard to improve your life and relationships already with just these two affirmations under your belt.
Valentine’s Day Gratitude Affirmation #3
I am so grateful for joy.
When you picture people enjoying Valentine’s Day, whether it be at a nice dinner or ballroom dancing (I know, something most of us have never done, but Hallmark and the commercials tell me people do this so it must be true) what you are seeing is joy. Happiness.
Well, joy is not reserved for Valentine’s Day only. Let’s take it for ourselves every day of the year and practice this affirmation so we will be primed to see more of it, enjoy more of it, and create more of it as we go forward now that our minds are primed for more of it.
And last but certainly not least:
Valentine’s Day Gratitude Affirmation #4
I am so grateful for me.
Here’s a little arrogance affirmation for you!
Not really, though. In seriousness, we need to be grateful for ourselves every day.
Without love and gratitude for ourselves, gratitude that we get to be here for those who love us and make our contribution to life, it is very hard to love and be there for others.
Without gratitude for yourself and the person God created you to be, not only are you largely unable to be your best self for those who need you, but you are also disrespecting one of God’s great creations.
Gratitude for yourself does not equate to arrogance nor does it equate to putting yourself before others. It simply recognizes your value, that you are a creation of God made in His image with the right to enjoy your life, feel good about who you were made to be, knowing that you were created to have great impact and be a light in this world (your impact does not have to be large-scale to fit this definition), and be a blessing to those whom you have been given.
If God found you special enough to create you and put you here, then there must be something special about you.
And once you see that, it becomes very hard to not see it in others as well, which can greatly impact the way you love and treat other people.
You are of great value, and there is never a bad day to remember that.
I hope these four gratitude affirmations have been helpful to you. As always, these four are just meant to jump start your creative flow. As more come to you, add them in! It’s sometimes surprising all the things we can be grateful for that we don’t always think about.
