One of my favorite lines from A Course In Miracles is:
“The only thing that can be lacking in any situation is that which you are not giving.“
I think of this often, especially when I am out of sorts….and then I quickly figure out that was is missing is: giving and receiving love.
I just simply forget to love myself, or I forget just how fortunate I am to have so much love in my life.
That’s when I remind myself that perhaps my most important reason for being is to be LOVE.
For many years, one of the goals I set out for myself was to be a philanthropist and in my own small way, I am.
A few years ago I learned the term “Love Philanthropist” from my dear friend, Marci Shimoff, bestselling author of Happy For No Reason.
I realized that being a “Love Philanthropist” is even more important than writing checks to worthy causes. I am grateful that I can do both.
Just like we all have enough fresh air to breath and clean water to drink, there is more than enough love for all of us to give and receive.
I want to remind you (and me) to love yourself, especially during the potential stresses of the holiday season. Make sure to create lots of “me time” and feed yourself well, take naps, get lots of quality sleep and make plans to be with like-minded, fun people.
Because when you are filled up, you have more love to share with the world.
Wishing you love, laughter and Magical kisses,
