Just be love...

LOVE is in the air! February is the month of love and has been designated the month to make us either feel super loved or super single...Thanks Valentine's Day! 

So what is Love?? Well let’s see....It can be a feeling, an emotion, an expression. It can hurt, heal and bond. It can break down walls and bridge gaps. I guess it’s a a pretty powerful thing.

One dictionary definition says:
Love is a strong and positive emotion of regard and affection. Love is affection, kind feeling, friendship, strong liking or desire, goodwill; opposed to hate.

That’s the part that sticks out to me....opposed to hate. When we let that door open ever so slightly to allow hate in we’ve weakened our ability to love. This little sentence got me thinking. When we sit and say, “I hate my this, I hate my that” (and trust me I definitely have a list), we are actually pushing our ability to love ourselves further and further away. My husband has told me for years that I am so self deprecating and I always thought i was just being funny, but I’ve realized that while I was joking, I always felt truth in what I was saying about myself. I’ve realized that I’ve allowed myself to jokingly love myself less.

So, new year. New mindset...LOVE. I’m going to LOVE the “good, bad and ugly”. I’m going to LOVE my beautiful tummy stretch marks (that look like a second butt crack) because my body carried and grew four beautiful and healthy little humans. I’m going to LOVE my difficult neighbor who let’s me know he’s judging me because our bikes and toys are all over the front yard and I can’t seem to keep my crazy four year old in the house and she’s out riding her bike at 7 am butt naked (true story). I’m going to LOVE those who disagree with me or may have hurt me or wronged me. I’m going to Just Be....LOVE.

Happy LOVE month beautiful mamas!
