Loving February

thankful-for-everything taraburnerWhether you are a romantic at heart or not, any time is a great time to fill our hearts with love. So why not today? Why not now? Let’s make this month the most love-filled month ever!

Let’s share kindness with others, and be grateful for our blessings. Let’s shine with happiness and brighten others’ days. Let’s take care of our own hearts as we take it easy on ourselves and do what we can to lower stress and raise self-esteem.

Let’s take care of our health, and tidy our home. Rearrange the furniture and clean out that junk drawer. Dream about the future we want, and take action to make it happen.

I feel filled with the promise of a new future, and this month has blown new hope into me. Hope that you feel the brightness of lengthening days also! Hope that you can feel even stronger in your self esteem as you join me in looking in the mirror and practice saying out loud, “I love you” to our own reflection. Do it! Do it again! Make the bed. Sweep off the front step. The future is coming and let’s make ourselves clean and bright so that we can reflect all the brightness and joy we feel.

Warmest wishes for a most wonderful February! May all our hearts be filled with love.

Jesus summarized the spiritual life with elegant simplicity: “‘Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy strength and with all thy mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” ~Luke 10:27
A precious thought that is easier said than done. This month let us deepen the doing. Through our intention to love and serve, let us remember how to open our own hearts. In this way we will restore our place in the great web of life that we may treat the earth and all her children with the greatest respect and love. February is the perfect time for the flowering of compassion.”

Sarah Ban Breathnach: “February arrives cold, wet and gray, her gifts disguised for only the most discerning spirits to see. Gentle is our path. Gratitude is the thread we weave into the fabric of our daily lives this month, giving thanks for our simply abundant lives and asking for the gift of one thing more: grateful hearts.”

  2. For some reason, Gina, I pictured you as Richard Simmons in this post, cheering us on to be more loving and grateful in February. I almost jumped up and started cleaning right now. In fact, I did move some things around on my desk. haha.
    February is the Chinese New Year where you are supposed to clean your house and make room for the blessings of the new year, so your post is muticulturally relevant. :)
    Thank you for starting my February off with a loving bang. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    • Hello my dear friend! I have been so busy preparing for this upcoming weekend and the new year of the Snake that I’ve been away from my computer! Glad to be back and thanking you for your delightful comments! I certainly can be a cheerleader ;) I like to cheer myself and others on, so I’m glad it got you pepped up and moving things around on your desk :D Loving {Hugs} Gina

  3. You just uplifted my day…even this whole month, Gina! Yes, I feel the lightness, promise, kindness and love of February. We have about 10 birthdays in this month — in our family and dear friends. It sure is a loved month. It’s always promised me a bit of hope in the bleakness of winter. Love, Lisa http://www.barefootbarn.com

    • Hi Lisa! Isn’t that wonderful, a month-full of birthdays :) I have great feelings about this year, and February has happily arrived with a burst of energy within me, and I was happy to share some teacups and violets and happy thoughts during this still wintery month. I am delighted that you’ve enjoyed this post. Love and Hugs, Gina
