What is done in love is done well.Vincent can Gogh
Today is the day of love. And today I want to call on all the loves in our life.
Let us celebrate all the different forms of love today.
I put this very special love affair that you have with yourself first, because it will always be one of the most important loves of your life. You should treat yourself as such. Because if you haven’t learned to love yourself the way you deserve, how should someone else be able to do that for you?
That special love to your family is usually a bond that will never break no matter the relationship you might have with your family right now. Therefore, it is perfectly fine when there are times the family relationship road is bumpy. That road is dominated by constant change. However, your family has most probably been there through all the ups and down along your way of growing up. So if you take a closer look you’ll see how truly special this relationship is and will always remain a very special love.
In friendships it’s important to have someone by your side who is as crazy as you are and loves you exactly for who you are. Your friends are the family that you get to choose. They are probably those people who know everything about you, always have your back and inspire you in a million different ways. They help you to see the rainbow on the rainy days and believe so much in you that you also learn to believe in yourself. Those friends who tell you to please write when you arrived home safely are the ones to keep close.
Those little or sometimes also big creatures have the power to light up our lives. They love us unconditionally and are always right there. Just think about how happy they are to see you when you return home or visit them. They are great listeners, no matter how often you might have to talk about the same thing. Pets are the best companions.
Mentors, coaches & people that we look up to
Those people that have achieved everything that you want to achieve. Those people who you watch and follow from afar, who inspire by who they are and what they to. Those people we had the privilege to work with and learn from. Those are the people that help us find what we’re good at and shape our personal purpose in life. They are the honest people who will talk to us about things that might be hard to hear while still having our backs and believing in us.
Those are the people we look up to, people that we love in a certain way. Without them we wouldn’t be the people we are today. And though some of them might only have touched our lives very shortly or from afar, they still had an impact that we forever value.
Throughout your life you will meet one person that’s unlike any other. You can talk to that person for hours and never get bored, you are able to tell them anything and won’t be judged. You want to wake up with this person each and every morning and kiss them goodnight every day. You want to hold hands and get lost in their eyes as often as you can.
I hope you have someone in your life who requires you to grow, makes you forget the bad days and adores you for who you are. I hope you look in the same direction, give each other wings to fly through continuous support and understanding, but also roots to come back to.
Love is patient. Love is kind. Love doesn’t judge. Love is unconditional. Love is deliberate. Love is hard.
Loving is courageous and one of the best things you’ll ever do.
So if you love something, love it completely. Cherish it, say how much you love them, but above all, show it.
Our days are numbered and just because someone is there one day, they might not be the next. So never take them for granted. Say what you need to say and then say a little more. Show too much and I want to even encourage you to love too much. Love is the one thing that will always stay. And it will always remain the one thing that the world cannot get enough of.
Happy Valentine’s Day,
