It's already been 5 years since my fiancé left me, it was 3 days after Valentine's Day, so of course I still think about it every year.
However, although this date is associated with a painful memory, it’s also a symbol of strength and courage.
It was in the face of adversity that I revealed myself, that I discovered in myself more love than I’ll ever have from someone else.
My life had to implode for me to find my truth.
Two weeks later, I was making the decision to marry myself...
A year later, I chose February 14 to launch Blog About L. with my first post “My Solo Wedding”.
As if to counter a spell and show the whole world that love has many faces.
Sharing this episode of my life was far from being easy, it took me months to talk about it, but I owed it to myself, to externalise this exceptional event born from a drama of my life.
I also owed it to the rest of the world to inspire hope and self-love.
And a worldwide response – MEDIA – which would exceed all my expectations.
An incredible and loving support, which has never stopped in 4 years, on the contrary, it continues to grow and to reach new horizons: Australia, USA, the UK, Greece, France, Egypt, India, Spain , Russia, Brazil...
And which also increases in the age groups from 8 to 92 years old!
I want to tell you that you are an inspiration, you're wonderful and you're worthy. Keep going, you have a beautiful life story!!!
Truly is a powerful message to be sent to the world. Continue being you and celebrate who you are!
The Renewal of my Vows last year (watch the Video), widely shared on my social media is another proof of my desire to inspire and to share more about my life and my actions.
I continue to grow, to evolve, to assert myself in all my greatness and my authenticity.
Above all, I love myself more day after day, accepting my flaws, my past mistakes and my fears.
I forgive me!
"Keep growing to bloom" L.
