Love is in the air! Can you feel it?
Regardless of its origins and the over commercialization of the day, Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to remind us of how important it is to demonstrate to those people we love- just how much we love them!
Relationships are at the very core of our existence! We all long to feel loved and “seen” and connected. Our key relationships sustain us through the best of times and the worst of times.
The Vital Life Long team believes that it is important to evaluate the status and quality of our key relationships on a regular basis. We must look honestly at our relationships and be willing to take our own share of responsibility for those relationships in order to effect positive changes.
There is a very famous line in a song by Nina Simone that goes like this, “You’ve got to learn to leave the table when love’s no longer being served”. Before you get up and walk away, we would like you to use this season of love to ask yourself a very important question. How do you serve love? Long before love stops being served, one or both parties stop taking the time to make it a priority. For most of us, life just gets in the way. We get too caught up in the busyness of life to make sure that love is served. We assume that love is a given. We assume that our spouses, our children, our parents and our close friends just KNOW that love is being served when the bills get paid or dinner is put on the table and the clothes get picked up from the dry cleaners.
Over the next week, we’d like to invite you to play with the concept of how you serve up the love you feel! We’d like you to consider taking your own share of responsibility for the quality of the relationships you have. Do you feel engaged? Do you feel connected? If the answer is no- what simple- doable and “playful” actions could you initiate in order to serve love in a manner in which the object of your love, FEELS your love? We’d like you to imagine what it could be like if you were to invite those you love… to your table. Imagine customizing a feast of love for all of the people you wish to express it to. Have fun… let your creative and playful spirit soar!
How do you serve LOVE?
Here is today’s Vital Reset ReMINDer:
Wake up every morning and ask yourself, “How can I fully love them today?” If you’re in a healthy relationship based off mutual love and respect, you will see the ways in which your love deepens and transforms once you begin to love fully in the way you want to be loved. Jamie Aaron
My very best wishes for an exceptional day and to your long and vital life.
