It has been a while since I posted a blog. Almost three years to be exact. So much has happened in three years, but lets focus on what is going on in the world today. The world is slowly opening back up due to a pandemic. Many of us have been affected by this horrible virus. Many are still fighting for their lives. I pray all those reading this are now healthy...or in the process of healing. I know many are still skeptical of the virus. Many believe it is not as serious as "they" portray. It is a "scare tactic" or a means to "control" us by "shutting down America". Lets put all that disbelief aside and put our focus on thanking the ones who see the truth day in and day out. There is a virus that is killing people. No one can argue that fact.
I cannot begin to thank all the nurses and doctors and health care professionals who are fighting for us, working overtime, isolating themselves from family for the wellbeing of others... including the skeptics. They have been called to duty and refuse to look back. They deserve our respect. They are, indeed, "Fearless".
“I love you”. It’s what Valentine’s Day is all about, right? It’s a day we say “I love you” to our significant other. A day to celebrate being in love. A day for flowers, and chocolates, and jewelry, and dinner dates...
Well, BLAHHHHH!!!! I’ve never been a fan of Valentine’s Day. It is a day commercialized to the point of expectation. Expectation for couples to purchase gifts of "love". Are these truly gifts from the heart? It is also a day of darkness for those without someone to love. It is a day that hurts, saddens, and burns. So, nope. I'm not a fan; however, I am a HUGE fan of LOVE. So much, in fact, that I look for LOVE. I look for LOVE in everything. And guess what? It is always around us! Not just one day, but every day. You just have to open your eyes...
Let's refocus. Who says Valentine’s Day has to be celebrating love for another person? Let’s celebrate love within our own heart.
I challenge you to take time today to open your eyes. Love is there. I promise. Allow your eyes to say “EYE love you” this year and watch your world change for the better.
Happy ValentEYEne’s Day!
