Love is...

There are so many types of love!  That's the great news about life.  We can love our family, our friends, our animals, our careers and more.  Valentine's Day can sometimes push many buttons when it comes to love because it tends to force us to focus on ideal romantic love.  While romance is a fun element to enjoy in life, it is not the end all be all of living.

If you are one of the people who like to wear black on this day, I encourage you to focus on the other parts of love in your life that make you smile.  You don't have to get anyone roses, chocolates, or take them out to dinner!  You can just send them a little email or call to leave an "I love you" message.  That could help make their day as well.

Today, I dedicate to my 2 month old daughter (today!)  She is sleeping on my chest as I write this, snoring - wrapped in a pink blanket.  I'm beginning to understand a new way to love through my relationship with her.  In this relationship, I'm learning to negotiate needs, wants, and re-prioritize.

If you're having a glum day, remember that love is all around us.  No one can tell you what that means, how you should act about it, and how to relegate love.  Embrace your passions!!  You are enough.
