I've been thinking about love lately...a lot. It's February! The month of love... And you know what they say about love... Love is in the air. Love is the question and the answer. Love me or leave me. Love is all you need. All you need is love. Love isn't love until you give it away. Love thy neighbor. Love is a battlefield. Love and money. For the love of God. Love is a many splendored thing. Love has many faces. Love has no limits. Love will find a way. Love your Self!
Well, as you can see, I've been counting the ways. =)
This month, by right of Saint Valentine is dedicated to the most complex, famous, wonderfully exciting emotion, both noun and verb in one. Get comfy, take a seat because I'm here to help you start unraveling this puzzle this month. Today, it's all about the questions...
What does love mean to you? What does it look like? What does it feel like?
What does love make you think about? What does it move you to do?
Do you believe in love at first sight? Do you believe in love at all?
Would you or did you ever marry for money? Was the love that got away the love of your life? Would you take a second chance if you got it?
This month, I challenge you to think about love. About how it affects you. Does it make you happy? Does it scare you? Is it full of drama and make you want to run away?
If you've been nursing a broken heart, tell me, are you willing to risk your heart ever again? How many times has your heart been broken? Have you ever broken someone's heart?
Is love a part of your daily life? Do you give it and receive it easily? Do you give your Self daily love? Could you practice more love for your Self, especially regarding your Self talk? Do you talk to your Self in a caring, loving way?
Do you give and feel the love all around you, in a smile, a kind word, a warm shaft of sunlight?...
No need to write anything down -- I'm not grading this test. =) Just sit with your thoughts and feelings as they come up. If you feel like journaling or creating something as a result of this exercise, go for it.
My questions are meant to motivate and inspire you to focus on love this month. To be open to and aware of it. To invite it into your life. Play with it. Spread it out in front of you. Then just see what happens.
