Happy Valentine’s Day!
If you follow me, you know that yesterday was my anniversary. Around here, we celebrate LOVE for days. It’s a fantastic tradition; and I’m lucky to share it with my great love.
I think this image perfectly represents real-life love…
- The heart has to be sturdy and take some knocks; it has to give and not break.
- You have to be ready to open the door to growth and opportunity, to change and evolution.
- You sometimes have to piece your heart back together, but those repairs make it stronger.
- And you have to remember that love is an endless circle. It never stops. It never dies. It simply changes. It goes round and round.
My great love story continues. It has changed and evolved myriad times, through unbelievable challenges and incredible blessings. I cherish it all.
I hope you have or find your own great love, and that you value its evolution.
Please share your thoughts on love!
I hope you have plans that will add joy and happiness to your life. Marie Kondo mania has given #joy a lot of attention lately; and I think that is wonderful! We should all choose joy more often.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We don’t usually think of joy as something we can or need to choose; but it most certainly is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In every moment we can focus on the good or the bad. Both are always present. This is how the world works.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
OUR work is to choose the joy!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Look for the good and be grateful.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Spend more time with people who elevate you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Participate in activities that lift your spirit, your sense of self.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eat, drink and move so you’re nourishing and strengthening that amazing vehicle, your body.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be responsible for your own happiness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Kindness begins with you.”
I’ve heard that my whole life, but for the longest time I misunderstood it.
I thought it meant I had to be kind to others in order for others to be kind to me.
While that is true, even more true is the fact that if you cannot be kind to yourself, you will never be fully kind to another.
Think on that.
Create something wonderful today. And be kinder to yourself.
That’s what I’m gonna do!
