Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day... aka Single Awareness Day :) Had to throw that one out there. I was thinking about it, and usually this day makes me feel sad, especially when you see all the adorable lovey dovey couples, but today I felt hope. I realized love defines us. Without love, there is no life. My mom and step-dad show ongoing love for one another even through the toughest of battles, and it's not only an inspiration, but it's a reminder of what love is all about. And that's why I feel hope. Love is everywhere.

"Take away love and our earth is a tomb." - Robert Browning.

"Love is an element which though physically unseen is as real as air or water. It is an acting, living, moving force... it moves in waves and currents like those of the ocean." - Prentice Mulford.

"Love is the most powerful and still most unknown energy in the world." - Pierre Chardin.

I no longer want to "wait" for it to happen; it is already happening... all around me. It's here and I already feel it's power every single day. To be grateful is another way to say thank you to the world we have been given. Everyone does everything out of love. We would have nothing if it weren't for love, hell, we wouldn't be here if it weren't for love.

Life shouldn't just be living "day to day"; you should be excited for every single second and love endlessly. That's how it's going to be from now on. I'm not going to focus anymore energy on what I don't want... only on what I want. I'm going to give thanks as much as I breathe in air and I'm going to love like there is no tomorrow.

I found my inspiration... and I hope those who are lost will find theirs. Here is to love.

So Happy Valentine's Day - may your life be filled with love forever more.


PS: Thank you for always being there for me with kind words and acts of love... it means more than you'll ever know.
