Preparing ourselves for the Valentine period is as much about self-love as it is about choosing and selecting from the variety of beautiful winter, spring and all year round flowers out there.

Daffodils, carnations, tulips, lilies, roses and more!

What is self-love? what is it? how does it link to romantic love?

In the dictionary we found that love is about regard.

synonyms: likingweaknesspartialitybentleaningproclivityinclination,disposition;

deep affection, fondnesstendernesswarmthintimacyattachment,endearment;

So it follows that self- love makes a difference when you regard yourself positively. This is great in the good times. And especially powerful in the face of a challenge. So what loving words might you use to describe yourself, which you can use in good and bad times?

How about writing it down?

Yes self-love is the path to true love shared with another. True love is about coming from your true identity and using that as your compass, especially in situations that are challenging.Yes really.

How you speak about yourself matters. Speaking about yourself in a loving way matters. We have mentioned it already, but maybe write down what you say to yourself in challenging situations and how you sound to yourself. It’s a useful enquiry because that voice that you are hearing inside of you is actually what is guiding you. It’s ok. You might realise on reflection that it’s actually someone else voice that sounds like your own because you have been repeating what they had said to yourself. Hence some lie, some misunderstanding of what is possible for you gets repeated by yourself to yourself.

This is the point of self forgiveness. For repeating those lies to yourself about yourself, as well as forgiving others.

Oh yes, yes, yes, it’s ok to re-examine and re-evaluate that voice because you will be shifting it, reversing it and sending it away and replacing it with your most valued thoughts.

Hey in romance, we get hurt, we feel pain, we get messed up. So yes we do hurt ourselves but do not use that to hurt yourself again. Give yourself time to be kind to yourself with self- compassion.  Reverbalise that in your own voice because yes as we mentioned  life can take a major turn, and can punch you in the face. So you may like to also prepare to be kind to yourself when it does. As florists, that is self love we reckon. It’s OK


This is the part of your relationship with yourself that is the blueprint for those other relationships you have with others.

By evoking these words about yourself in the energy of peace, appreciation, love, and beauty  you have created a cradle of reassurance. For yourself, by yourself. It’s self empowerment of the most intimate kind.

The London Flower Lover

Words have wings…they carry your energetic intentions…flowers and your choice of the most beautiful flowers which you use to hold yourself in a high regard, also carries your energetic intentions. receive your own caring love from yourself.

Continue to receive….be receptive, to remain open and you could do that by finding other ways to surround yourself with beauty. Any form of beauty, any form of comfort, the thing that you value that triggers your happiness, joy and peace. Again, we suggest flowers because they trigger your imagination, the part in the brain that images you. The part that creates the pictures that moves, stirs, arouses you into action. Just by doing this you, we, us, create comforting, beautiful, love from the inside out. receive your own love from your own love.

So what ever your romantic relationship status, you can enjoy valentines and valentine flowers from a self-care point of view. Because self-care is really self-love. And self-love means you are filling yourself up from the inside first and then able to share that with others. You can be loving to recieve your own love, from your own love. Choose your own way of enjoying that about yourself.

Enjoy your valentine flowers, because they are self-care flowers.
