Valentine's Day isn't just a day for romance and between two lovers. It's a day to celebrate love of all things and the power of love.
For this episode of "Quotes to Live By" I wanted to focus on the topic of love as a driving force in our lives.
"Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, and penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."
- Maya Angelou
Love is pure and limitless, and it uncovers what the opposite of love is: fear. It uncovers what our fear attempts to hide in us. When we close ourselves off from pursuing what we love, or doing things in love we are just living in fear and it is holding us back from feeling fulfilled and happy. We close ourselves off from taking chances, from fighting for our dreams or from really taking in the beauty of life all around us.
If you do things in the spirit of love and follow your heart you'll end up on top. That's not without saying that sometimes it will be hard. You might get knocked down and your heart might hurt a little. But because our ability to love is endless and limitless, as soon as you decide to open yourself up again and fight for what you love or who you love, you will always end up at your destination feeling the most fulfilled and happy.
