Why I Love you this Valentines Day

WHY I love you this Valentine’s Day!

  • You embrace each day with JOY!
  • You know that your one kind act to another person (even if no one else knows you did it) is more powerful than all the attention-seeking rants on social media demanding others to live differently. Your smile and kindness are making a difference right now. You walk your talk.
  • You take responsibility for your life and don’t blame others. “I create my life!” is your mantra.
  • You know if you say, “It’s fun!” when it seems hard; “I’m happy!” when they seem sad; and “I know what to do,” when others are unwilling to take a step you will indeed have fun, be happy and make progress.
  • You are a genuine, caring friend – what you say TO someone is the same as what you say ABOUT someone.
  • You are not afraid to be afraid – you recognize you are afraid, but then you take action anyway!
  • You are willing to love….again and again…through broken trust, disappointment and the challenges that even those most important to us can pile on us.
  • You understand that caring and compassion at individual and community levels can shape areas as expansive and complex as global economic markets. Caring is the new currency.
  • And…most important….you love yourself. And you are so very worthy.

I love you for the love you give to me. You fill my world with joy as you go about composing a good world. Thank you. May this Valentine’s Day remind you that while we may not all express our love as boldly or confidently, real love speaks out loud and clear! Jump in!
