Why Awesome Appreciation is Synonymous with a LOVE Destination!
Ah, cupid is on the move and love is in the air, but no matter the reason or the season, ANY time is a great time to feel and express love! The coolest part of all? The more love you share, the more genuine happiness—and therefore ALLOWING of all-things-FABULOUS—ALL parties experience!
Have you noticed that when you are loving something, whether it be another human, animal, thing, or how you are engaging life in the moment, every light bulb in your body and mind turns on? Love (AKA appreciation) is what many would say brings you in synch with the Divine, so it’s no wonder that appreciating anyone or anything benefits your body and mind in unfathomable ways. When we are in a state of pure appreciation, we are able to look upon others and the world with new eyes. Then we can perceive the beauty, solutions, order and perfection that truly IS all around us—and be a true powerful, positive influence and catalyst for good. The votes are in! Love is where it’s at, and if it takes that little cherub guy with the arrow to draw our attention to it, so be it!
Everywhere a VALENTINE!
If your intention is to attract and allow a fabulous new Valentine into your life, have more fun with the one you have, or to just feel better about life overall, start by finding love where it IS, rather than fixating upon where it isn’t. “Justifed” or not, every time you focus upon or discuss why s/he “done you wrong” or talk about every possible reason why it’s hard to find a good partner, the Law of Attraction does its job and delivers more of the same. Yikes! On the other hand, when you mine your life and consciously appreciate the LOVE that IS in your life, you get to feel amazing NOW, spread some seriously good Mojo, and open the door to allow even more!
1. Make a list of all the people, animals and things (beaches, mountains, cars, etc.) that are easy to love.
2. Read and/or add to this list daily.
Keep this list by your bed and read before sleep and upon waking to get some fabulous LOVE momentum flowing!
3. Put appreciation into action by:
* Sending at least one “VALENTINE,” AKA card/note or message appreciating someone you love daily
* Doing something special for your fav human, animal friend, or even a stranger daily
* Going to a place or participating in an activity YOU love daily
4. Do this consistently for at least 30 days.
Why not use the “excuse” of Valentine’s Day to honor and appreciate ALL the ones you love?! No one said that Valentine’s Day HAD to be for couples alone, but even if “they” did, who cares anyway? You are free to honor whatever day in whatever way YOU choose! An added bonus: The more you allow yourself to love and appreciate others, the easier it becomes to appreciate your work, your life and even your SELF. Besides, how can you NOT love an awesome appreciator? I think YOU totally rock!
The Bottom Line on Allowing VALENTINE Success
When you really think about it, a Valentine, shiny new car, acquiring a great gig or rockin’ a fit, strong body are nothing more than potential paths or reasons to allow yourself to feel better, good and ideally LOVE. ANY time you choose to love/appreciate something, you are seeing the world through the eyes of your SOURCE, and when you don that kind of vantage point and feel that kind of connection, you are truly, in that moment, holding the brass ring, standing on the mountain top, grasping the trophy and lacking for nothing.
Feeling LOVE is the ultimate, alpha, omega, mac-daddy reward, so why wait for a Valentine—or anything else—to let yourself feel what you CAN feel today and NOW?
The Journey IS, indeed, the Destination, after all.
“I am the product of so much love
I know everything leads me to a better place
But this life is beautiful, so beautiful
When we remember to live in today.”
