Hello tribe of love,
Important business to start! Tonight, Wed Feb 14, is round 2 of our quality of life surveys in partnership with Spectrum Healthier Communities. Please join us & take the survey which will help us obtain crucial data to show the impact of yoga & meditation in community on physical & mental wellbeing. This is really important work friends and we need YOU. While you are working on your personal goals, EmbodyGR is here to support you each step of the way and together we can bring Embody to communities across our region, throughout our nation, and ultimately across the globe. Thanks you in advance for being part of our survey process, for your efforts, support and help to bring Embody into the lives of more humans.
Now... Happy Valentine's Day!!! It's actually one of my most favorite days of the year. It's the day I can tell everyone I love them and it's not considered strange. Really, I love doing this. It feels good. It affirms others. It helps me. Being positive, energetically engaged, and sharing love always leaves me in a better state of being. Life looks brighter, tomorrow more hopeful, problems more manageable. The more love I give away, the more I am able to love myself a little more as a result.
Self-love is no joke; self-love is not necessarily native; self-love takes hard work; self-love is necessary. And if self-love is that powerful, love in relationship is a doozie. When you choose love, it's not like an a la carte menu where you pick & choose only your favorites. Love is a total package deal; an all or nothing gig. It overflows with beauty, passion, joy, & happiness while also bringing pain, heartbreak, confusion, sadness, and grief. But you can't get one without the other. You cannot know deepest passion without experiencing the wrenching feelings of loneliness; connection without isolation; joy without sadness. Continue to choose love anyway. Why else are we here? Choose love again and again. Give your heart fully and though it won't be perfect, you will be living life to the fullest. You are worth it. Love is worth the risk.
Remember, you can't give what you don't have. So take a deep breath for YOU! Honor yourself, your light, your beauty, your heart. Love yourself as fully & completely as possible. Now get out there.. BE LOVE ... the world needs you.
