Happy LOVE week. This week it’s all about the hearts, the songs, the hugs and kisses. The candy!! How could I forget. It’s about everything and anything love. Love to others. Love to him. Love to her. Love to you. Read that again. This week is about love. Something that has no limits. No boundaries. No expectations. So soak it up. Feel it. Let it in. Because sweetheart, you deserve it.
I know that when the word love is brought into light it holds these expectations, especially when we talk about loving ourselves. Let’s be honest, it’s not always easy to love yourself. Sometimes it’s hard. Really hard. Really painful. And really ugly. It isn’t something we always want to do. It isn’t something we always want to feel. But it is something that we always come back too. You wanna know why? Because we can’t move on, walk forward, achieve anything else without the love for ourselves. It’s just a part of the equation. In order to say goodbye to the pain of the past, to change the number on the scale, to become the boss, to find love, to you must love and believe in yourself enough first. It all starts within the heart that is beating inside your chest as we speak. I mean think about it. How can we love someone else if we don’t even know how to love ourself? How can we become something better or bigger if we don’t believe in our bones we are worth it? How can we let go of the dark if we don’t feel worthy of the bright? How can we? I’ll tell you. We strive to be better, not enough. Because sweets, you are more than enough as if and you’ll never be too much. We do it day by day. Change by change. Mantra by mantra. With love and for love. Because love will never steer you wrong and it will never ever fail.
So yes, this week we will decided to love ourselves so we can be better. But what about all the other ways love is in our lives? How do we appreciate that? Well, these past weeks the world has shown us just how precious time is. How precious relationships are. How fragile and imperative love is. It’s a hard lesson to watch and an even harder one to feel, but it can be the most amazing lesson to learn because we only have so much time. I know I know it’s sad to think about a time where he or she isn’t here. When traditions end. When what once was no longer is. But if we acknowledge that it is REAL we will start to appreciate it on a deeper level so that when that time comes, we have no regrets. So this week, go home and love your families. Squeeze them a little tighter. Tickle them and remember their laughs. Pick up the phone and tell them you love them. Snuggle and cuddle. Kiss and make up. Or just kiss and have fun because you can. Whatever it is just do it and keep doing it. Because time spent loving someone will never ever be wasted. And if you lead a life with love on the forefront, well you may have just achieved living your best life.
So this week remember these 2 things. 1) Use love to make yourself better, not enough. Because you already are that. 2) tell people you love them. Show people you love them. And never ever stop. We only have so much time here and how beautiful of a world it would be if we all started to show and tell people just how much we love them for who they are what they do and what they give to this world.
I love you all. I’ll tell you today, tomorrow, and forever. Always and all ways ladies and gents!
Smooches and squeezes,
