Love Heals and begins with your most important relationship…yourself
I am spending Valentines Day with me. At times, this can be my most challenging relationship. Sometimes, I can be my own worst enemy. Sometimes, I let my fears sabotage my dreams and sometimes I struggle to get out of my own way. I am stubborn, an extremely hard worker, and aim to “under promise and over deliver” as we used to say in the sales world. I preach that I do not believe in “no pain, no gain” but continually find myself pushing myself that much harder instead of letting go and trusting that I have enough and I am enough.
I know that I have enormous potential and I know that I am not always allowing my best self to shine. I recognize that I am not always working in “the zone”.
Today, I quote Brad Frost, my son in law…I choose LOVE. Self love that is…yummy, nourishing, soulful love. I truly believe that our purpose on this Universe is to grow and flourish and heal and to do so we need to spend more time in the zone. The zone is when you are so passionate about something that you lose yourself in the process. When you are in the zone you are energized and you are inspiring.
What is it that makes your heart sing? What is it that makes you feel happy, calm, and blissful? Will you allow yourself time and space to explore these questions? Will you allow yourself time to rest, relax and have fun? Play is the playground for discovery and growth. For me, play is sharing and connecting in a deep meaningful way. For me, play is dancing and yoga is a wonderful way to connect with your self as well as to open up the blocked energy centers in our bodies. Combining these elements bring me peace and joy and love. And Love is the highest form of healing and the highest energetic vibration in the universe. You can feel the difference. A heart in love is physiologically different then a heart in pain, anger, jealousy or resentment. Both are contagious so choosing self-care and self-love is in effect, the most loving choice you can make for your family, friends and community. We’ve all heard the phrase, “If Momma ain’t happy, no one is happy!”
Today, on Valentines Day, which will you choose?
Sending you Love from my heart to yours,
Happy Valentines Day!
