Badass Love

valentine's day

Whether you are that person sharing your public displays of affection with the world or you’re getting together with your pals to curse your ex-lovers.. on February 14th, LOVE is on your mind and in the air.

Call it a “Hallmark Holiday” if you will, I think it is kind of fabulous to have a day out of the year dedicated to celebrating LOVE.

Bare with me, feisty chicas. I’m not getting all mushy on you. I know our readers our serious bad-asses. But let’s be real.. it takes one tough cookie to love and be loved. As my buddy Lau Tzu says “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

Love can be tough stuff.  And I’m not just talking about with a significant other. Having true friends that love you in and out, just the way you are with genuine pride and happiness minus any jealousy or competition, that you trust with your life..  that kind of love is a true gem. A rare gem.

And then there is family. The people that are forced to love you. As dysfunctional as it can get, if you’re lucky, you have family that love and adore you. And if you’re REALLY lucky, you actually like them back. I’m so very blessed with this kind of love.. even if we show it via some serious throw downs.

So today on this national day of love,  dig down deep, be courageous and share your love for someone. If  you’ve been hurt or burned before, be fearless, and let someone love you. Celebrate all the love in your world in every form that it comes. But most importantly, love yourself. Appreciate and accept where you are in life today and know it’s exactly where you are supposed to be. Seriously. You deserve it.

And you bet your sweet bad-ass we at Girls Fight Back love each and everyone of you.. And thank you for lovin’ us!

Happy Valentine’s Day fearless friends!
