Dear LW Community,
Today was a day filled with self-love. Learning, expressing and talking about what it is that I desire to bring into my life and very being. Taking time and learning patience has been my work this year. Learning to listen to my body’s wisdom is a gift. Learning to love myself and life is a gift.
What is life for? Is it for you? Here I am, where I ought to be. Love the possibilities, love the ordinary, love yourself, and love your work. The greatest gift your ever receive is the gift of loving and believing in yourself. Guard this gift with your life. This is the only thing that will ever truly be yours. Love doing everything, love doing nothing, love your family and friends. And love to play. Always be ready to have the time of your life. You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm. Love your own backyard, love the open Road, love taking your time, love the outdoors, love a good walk, Love the earth, love your neighbors, love helping others, love children and love memories made. With every rising of the sun, think of your life as just begun.
