When I think about what is love, all sorts of things go through my head. There are so many songs, poems, films and stories around the subject love. We all seem to look for it in one way or another. A little while ago I went to a funeral and there was the song ‘The Rose’. When I looked at the words, which are so beautiful, there were a few lines that resonated with me “Some say love it is a hunger, an endless aching need”, “I say love, it is a flower, and you it’s only seed”. This is so beautiful and yet we do forget that we are special. It also says “Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow, lies a seed that with the sun’s love, in spring becomes a rose”. That is to me what love means, allow the sun to shine on you, be kind to yourself, by doing that you will find that love is all around. Life is full of unpredictability, and no matter how hard we try to make it as stable as possible, at any given time, anything can take place, and our lives can totally change with or without our approval or desire. So why not make life yours? Don’t let what you have been through prevent you from growing! Why not dance, why not LOVE, why not seek new adventures as each day passes, you truly only live once! Be kind and give yourself an inner smile send it into your hart and notice how your body is feeling by giving yourself that little gift. Although you can’t change situations sometimes you can change how you deal with it. We all have a choice.
It’s like the saying “Cut your own wood and it will warm you twice” Happy Valentine!
