This weekend I had the pleasure of watching one of my FAVE films "Wild at Heart" on 35 mm at the Egyptian Theatre. 😍This film plays into ALL my love fantasies and dreams. The epic couple. Having epic sex. With SO much passion. ALL the "I can't live without you" feels and deals and reels, with a side of murder and mayhem in true "Hero's Journey" fashion.
.
Let's be real, as feminist and empowered and as "out of the Matrix" as you may be- escaping all programming around love and Valentine's Day can be tough. Those Disney princess dreams were woven into my fabric so tightly that I'm not quite sure if they will ever unravel as much as I pick their seams. So best I can do is love them and accept them! But how to survive the candy coated capitalist chaos of V Day?! I say if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! But in YOUR own reclaimed way of course! 🤘🏼I suggest to...
.
💗Write love letters to your friends or maybe an anonymous one to a neighbor and leave it on their car💗Dress as your fave love story character💗Do a visualization/meditation where you connect to your Prince Eric or whoever you fetishized as a child 💗Make a Love altar full of memorabilia with candy heart dreams 💗Have a funeral of old love tropes and burn them 💗Sing cheesy love songs all day REALLY LOUD💗Make raw chocolates and with each one you eat say a prayer or love affirmation (so easy to make! Google it!) 💗Identify 2 things you SO wish a lover would do for you and do them for someone else 💗Pls add to my list in the comments! How do you reclaim Valentine's Day and escape the sardonic and often sadistic state of the saccharine sadness status quo?! I wanna know!
