I'm still on a high about last weekend's accomplishment even though I'm trying not to brag. I did have a fun surprise though when my business coach, Rich German, told the whole group about my achievement. I had told him of course because it's one reason I hadn't done the work I was supposed to do for him (ha ha - always looking for excuses) and he told everyone even though it had nothing to do with our course. But that was kind of nice. It was an act of "love" and caring.
Which leads me to today's topic. People think of Valentine's Day as being only for "lovers" but I like to look at it as being for everyone who loves something. For example, my running family is full of love - probably more than I've ever experienced on any Valentine's Day in my past. And they express that love every single day. Loving someone or something means being there for them WHENEVER they need it (and even when they don't need it but you want to let them know you're thinking of them).
Practice putting love into your daily life and even today try to tell others "Happy Valentine's Day" even if you're risking funny looks. Isn't making someone else feel better worth a funny look? You have no idea what's going through that person's mind and how they are feeling and your three words might actually make a significant difference in their life (but that's the subject of another post).
What do you love? Who do you love? What does love mean to you?
Remember to use your Gratitude Journal to express your love to the universe even if you don't do it to another individual. Gratitude is THE most powerful force in the Universe! Write it out, type it out, think it, just DO IT! Saying your "gratitudes" will help you create your own reality in a positive way. You get more of what you put out every day. So put out that love and gratitude that you're feeling!
