The Season of Love

One day is just the beginning

By Karen Frye

We think of love as we celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 14th but, hopefully, we focus on it the other 364 days as well, creating a lifestyle for ourselves. Start your day with feelings of love and spread it everywhere with everyone. End your day with gratitude for all the love you’ve received. Tune in to these feelings and reap the incredible benefits it brings to your life.

We are born into the world with immense love. This force within us can be nourished and grow more powerful with practice. Life can be challenging, but its lessons can be opportunities to use our hearts to find a way through obstacles and grow stronger. When we understand that love can resolve so many of the confrontations and challenges life brings, we become more loving, even in the most difficult times.

Each morning before you get out of bed, connect to your heart center. Be grateful that your heart is beating and sending feelings of compassion, empathy and love to every cell in your body. Open yourself to the good things happening to you. Sharing the love you feel with others will open their hearts as well. We must embrace, and even love, those who have hurt us.

Love has the power to change many things. It can end anger, strife, resentment and emotional pain. Everything improves with practicing love, but the person who benefits the most is you. What footprint will you leave on this world? Walk the path of love. Uplift others. You will be happier, healthier and more content with your life, and the world will be a better place.  PS
