Today is a great day to reflect on the true meaning of love. True love is held in the soul and nourishes our wellbeing. Love is defined and expressed differently, though this diversity exist, love can still become overshadowed by life's circumstances. Today, allow yourself the time to reflect on the love that surrounds you.
Love is a sincere greeting, a loving memory, someone healing you, you healing someone, a prayer, a hug from a child, a kiss from your dog. The most important love of all is not sold in a box of choclates or grown in the riches of soil. It's the love you have for yourself. So, don't forget to look in the mirror this morning and say, "I love you!" Do it until it's no longer awkward. No one can ever love you as much as you can possibly love yourself. Be proud of your journey, accomplishments, failures and perseverance.
P.S...if no one has told you I love you today. Be the first and I will be the second. I love you!
