“One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.”
Valentine’s Day hasn’t always been a happy celebration for me – you know, love lost, heartache, bla bla bla. Then one day I woke up and realized that I still had love to give, that love was as real for me as ever, just different. We all love and want to be loved. We want to share our love freely and unhindered with someone who will give it back, take note of it and not take it for granted. I relearned what I always knew – that love was more than a celebration of feeling between two lovers, but that it is what passes between all humankind – lovers and friends, parents and children, leaders and admirers. But even still, the VDay celebration tends to have a romantic connotation to it that is ages old. So steady your heart, keep your feet on the ground and let love flow this month. Enjoy it, feel it, don’t be afraid to show it, for in the conscious release of our feelings is the true realization of this magical thing we call love. Be unfettered, have some fun – LOVE!
