Valentine’s Day is for everyone! Whether you have a sweet love, want a sweet love, or just enjoy meeting people and creating new friendships, today, like every other, belongs to you . . . infused with a little something extra.
Today gives us a reason to make an effort to express our love, care, and appreciation to everyone who touches our heart in a special way; who somehow participates in making us a better person, or reminds us how truly awesome we are, especially during those moments when we forget.
Today is a selfless day. A day where the energy of love flows not just through the gift of dark chocolates, a dozen red roses, an amazing dinner, a gift of diamonds for her, or something wonderfully sweet for him. It is about letting people in your life know how much you appreciate them, what they mean to you, and how your world is a better place because they are a part of it.
It invites us to step outside what would seem to be an all consuming self -absorbed lifestyle filled with worry, or fear about what is, or may not be, and to think about all the amazing people in our life who have touched our heart and let them know they have, and if we have the words, to tell them how. Who might that be for you?
Our appreciation reaches beyond our immediate family, and friends as we take notice of all the people who contribute to enhancing the quality of our life. What about the person who cuts your hair, does your dry cleaning, or delivers your mail? How about the cashier that you have come to know at the grocery market, or the 7eleven?
Love . . . when you feel it, you are experiencing the most amazing energy flowing through every cell in your body; the essence of the truth of who you are. It infuses every word you say, everything you do, and your every thought. It infuses every intention you have to improve the life of another, including your own, and not just on Valentine’s Day. The most precious thing of all is that this sweet expression of love doesn’t cost one penny.
This is a day to make an effort to let people know you ‘see’ them . . . not with your eyes, but with your heart. Share the love!
Make everyday Valentine’s Day!
From my heart to yours,
Lee Ann Hawkins
