“I have always believed that change is possible and I know without doubt that the desire to change has to be intrinsically motivated. Yielding to the pressure from outside sources may produce some evidence of change for a limited period of time, but the brain has to follow the heart on this for change to be lasting. And “by the heart” here I mean that inner desire, passion, and conviction to make things different; there has to be a compelling reason to do the work of change.” Lynne Johnson, CPO-CD, COC.
“Love is not something we give. Love is not something we get. Love is simply something that IS. Love is seeing what is just as it is. Love is accepting what is just as it is (although whether we choose to ‘accept’ it or not, things ‘is’ still exactly as they ‘is’.
This Valentine’s Day, let’s see if we can remember that we ARE love. Wherever we are, with whomever and whatever we encounter, let’s BE love by seeing our beloved, our friends, the world, our circumstances, EXACTLY AS THEY ARE. (And of course this means feeling EXACTLY the sensations we experience when we see things exactly as they are.)
LOVE IS. On Valentine’s Day; On sad days; On happy days; On easy days; On hard days; With people we like; With people we don’t like. LOVE IS.”

“The maxim, “Nothing prevails but perfection,” may be spelled PARALYSIS.”

Whatever it looks like, CELEBRATE.
Only with acceptance, can we shift.
