Although February 14th is a day set aside for lovers, there should be no greater love than the love we have for ourselves. When we love ourselves completely, we’re totally content with who we are and proud of the skin we’re in.
For some people, the joy, cheer, and merriment the holiday season brings won’t be enough to lift their spirits and overall emotional state of being. Try as they might, their constant cloud of anxiety, depression, and sadness won’t allow them to. Genuinely show care and concern and treat everyone the way you’d like to be treated because there are some people dealing with serious issues internally that don’t physically show on the outside.
Spring is a symbol of rebirth. There’s so much to look forward to–Easter, Passover, Earth Day, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day all occur in the warm weather months as well. Lastly, Spring brings us cheer and warmth while lifting every last one of us out of Winter’s doldrums and cold temperatures.
Focusing on gratitude instead of lack creates a subtle shift in your thought process that removes negativity. With dedicated practice, everywhere you turn and every thought you think will be about something you’re grateful for. Appreciate everything–bemoan nothing. Before long, expressing gratitude for all things, large or small, will become a daily habit and a new way of living and seeing the world.
Peace on earth and goodwill to our fellow man, woman, boy, and girl shouldn’t solely be for the holiday season, but everyday and in every season: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Be joyous spreading daily cheer, warmth, and love!
