It really concerns me when I see people buying overpriced, under quality flowers on their credit cards that are already maxed, when truly what we need is time.
Time to notice one another, time to reflect, taking time back to love one another with intention and purpose.
My Radio message for this month, http://www.kinwomen.com/audio/ is all about love in our everyday.
I want to be a better lover, when I am tired and cranky, when I am isolated and lonely. I want to show and give love not only to my family, but my friends and my neighbours.
Love is not cheap.
It is also not bought online with a ribbon tied around it.
Love is costly and timely and it is hard work.
A quick buy from the shops on the way home from work is not going to gird your friendships and relationships in love. Time and intention, noticing and listening, patience and kindness will.
Now these are the things I will be challenging myself with this Thursday, the 14th.
Chocolates, flowers and consumerism; Overrated.
Some might say today is Valentines day, but for me its thursday.
