“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” – Buddha
With Valentine’s Day to remind you to celebrate the ones you love, you should also take a moment today to celebrate the unsung heroine of your love life: you. For what reason do we strive to do well, grow in self awareness, and make each new day better than the last if not out of self love? Because we care about our self and our life, we generate the motivation to reach our greatest potential. Hiking the journey of your life is, in and of itself, a labor of love.
The following quote reminds me that each person is special. We are all seen, felt, and loved. Perhaps not by all of our fellow humans, but always by the richness of this vast universe and the unseen forces compelling us to move forward, even on our hardest days:
“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.” – Khalil Gibran
Enjoy the day, my friends, and don’t forget to take a moment to appreciate the wonder that is uniquely you.
