Global Love Day | May 1
(Last Updated On: April 28, 2023)


They say that love is the universal force that binds us all. With such a powerful impact, it makes sense to dedicate an entire day to all the positive things love brings. Global Love Day on May 1 is a day to remind humanity that anything can be achieved when we attune our minds to the frequency of unconditional love.


Unconditional love can be described as showing love without boundaries. No matter how many times people may ignore our boundaries and needs, unconditional love approaches every situation with forgiveness and understanding. Love is a force so powerful that inspires the spirit of healing and transformation. By attuning to this frequency, we can turn the tides of anything in the world that is less than love.

Unconditional love comes in different forms. Whether we show unconditional love to our small circles or share unconditional love on a national level, coming together to promote peace and love is the goal. However, unconditional love means loving ourselves just as much as loving our neighbors. Without inner love, it might not be easy to love those around you. After all, love always begins with you. Once you learn to love everything about yourself, love for those around you comes naturally.

On Global Love Day, make a conscious effort to show love to yourself. Too many times, we hide and forget to love ourselves because of past trauma, pain, and suffering. These internal feelings prevent us from realizing you are worthy of feeling loved and giving love. Take your power back and stop thinking your circumstances should define you. Now is the time to self-reflect and start making small changes. Embrace your imperfections and accept your mistakes. Changing your thinking patterns will result in changing your view of yourself.

Each morning when you wake up, spend time training your brain to love yourself. Studies show when you start your day thinking positive thoughts, you begin to feel differently about who you are. You learn to love yourself for all of you imperfections.
