What’s Love Got To Do With It?

By Liz Sterling  
I can’t really write about or profess to know anything about unconditional love. I struggle, grapple, and literally ache to live an unconditionally loving life. The truth is, I am merely a beginner, and so this month, when given the topic of unconditional love, I went to others to help guide me. As you’ll see below, I’m sharing quotes about the subject. Yet one thing I realized is that most of us think of unconditional love in a romantic way, and that’s not the way I think it’s ever going to come to fruition.

Unconditional love is easy with a new puppy, a kitty cat, a turtle making its way across the road to get to a new body of water… and under those circumstances, there’s no problem feeling unconditional love. But when it comes to relationships and unconditional love, that’s a horse of another color.

So after deliberating about this topic for a bunch of days, I’ve come to the conclusion that the best place to start unconditionally loving – is with me. I am proposing you consider doing the same. See if you can find something about yourself to love, and love it!!!! Play with it. Revel in it. Drink it in and luxuriate in loving yourself unconditionally. Then, maybe you can extrapolate from there and see into the world with loving eyes. Oh, and definitely, with a loving heart. Remember, practice makes perfect. Have fun, good luck and may the force be with you on this awesome and powerful quest.

It’s February, it’s Valentine’s month so love, love love, love yourself and love others as best you can – and remember the joy is in the journey.

Love from my heart to yours, Liz
