If unemployed, trying to transition into a new career, and not receiving the tributary bouquets of flowers, chocolates or other rude awakenings that Valentine’s Day may bring your thoughts of celebrating love may mirror the 1929 murder of seven mob associates in what is famously known as the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre. Obviously, life is just not perfect.
But these crazed Hallmark holidays can also remind us that nothing in life is worthwhile without a struggle. We desperately try to convince ourselves otherwise but it never works that way. There are constant ups and downs. It is ok to be discouraged as long as we can work through those feelings, not harbor our resentments and move to a higher place. Call a mentor that can help you.
If you are one of those searching for better times today, try to do something for someone who needs you more than your own template of confusion. If working, sprinkle their desks with cheap candy, send that HR specialist that you just interviewed with a happy Valentine’s day message and call that relative you have argued; making the appropriate amends. We only have today.
Holidays can be ridiculously difficult dredging up mistake and loss. But regardless of your circumstances, if you have walked in the arms of integrity, your beauty truly reaches beyond your own environment. It is extremely powerful whether you know it or not. It is a horizon of color that overcomes the physical limitations life has to offer.
Whether you are poor, chronically ill, over weight, too thin or succumbed by disability, your personality that exudes laughter, sincerity, gratitude and love is living life to the fullest and many of you will never how elegant you really are. Never believe otherwise.
And that is my special gift of love for all of you on Valentine’s Day.
