Valentine’s Day can be a bitter sweet day for many, including myself. Today I’ll show you a beautiful way to change that…

This is how Valentine’s Day became thoughtless. Whether it’s due to a loss of love or life, here’s a gift to bring new life to the symbol of love.

The rose is given as a sign of love for many reasons.

It’s a woody, prickly, perennial. One that’s enduring and recurring.

The rose symbolizes promise, hope, and new beginnings

However, the thorns are symbolic of defense, loss, and thoughtlessness.

Sounds like love at times, huh?

Especially if you’ve ever been cut by one of those metaphorical thorns.

My gift to you is a new way of receiving Valentine’s Day.

The R.O.S.E.

R: Redefine
O: One + One
S: Sacred
E: Energy of Love

Love isn’t the most important thing. It’s truly the ONLY THING that really matters.

What meaning will YOU give this day, my dear?
