With love

I wish you a happy Valentine's Day!  I hope regardless of your relationship status you will take a little time today to consider whom you love and what you love about life. It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day rituals without taking time to really look at the significant people in your life.  What do you love about them?  Valentines Day, may be a good day to share with them, what that is and give them a little extra validation, that they are important to you.  It is also a perfect day to give yourself a little love and validation.  You deserve it!   When we feel full in this area it comes through in everything we do.  It attracts people to you because it makes you feel good about yourself and gives you an appreciation for yourself and those around you.  If we all did this, we could solve almost all the problems in our country and then we could turn that appreciation and validation on the other countries.  I know that may seem far fetched but when you validate and appreciate your own humanity, your eyes open to all humanity and its need to be validated and appreciated.  What would happen next?  We would realize that all humans need a healthy ecosystem for survival and we would begin to secure and insure our planets health and our survival.  It all starts with you, validating your humanity, loving yourself and then turning your focus on those that surround you, so you can offer them the same.  

I keep hearing that loneliness is an epidemic in our country.  If you find yourself feeling lonely it might make you feel better to help be the solution to the loneliness epidemic by taking time to interact with others around you.  I'm not talking about social media, I'm talking about the people you come across in your everyday life.  I heard recently the more time people spend on social media the more likely they are to suffer with loneliness.  If you are one of the ones that are actually more lonely when you are with someone or in a group (I have felt this way before) it may be time to re-evaluate your interests or priorities and begin to see other people or hang in other groups.  If you think you need help, reach out and get it!  There's no shame in needing support and asking for it.  Life can be hard to navigate sometimes. It can be difficult.  That is not a reflection of you.  More a symptom of a complex world.  So love yourself, validate your needs and seek to get them met.  You never know, you may uncover a solution beneficial to others as well as you :-)

If you have lost a loved one, I want to share these lyrics I wrote, in an effort to cushion me against what was then, the impending loss of my father, at the time I wrote it.  You may find the words comforting and if you feel alone, I'm hoping you will begin to see that you are never alone when you carry your loved ones in your heart.  The song is called "Still Alive"

"This changes nothing, nothing but everything.  I hear you tell me I'm gonna be fine.  I keep you with me and I hear the words you'd say in my mind, in my mind, you're still alive.  In my mind, in my mind, you're still alive.

We are timeless, for the things we've taught.  We are beauty.  We are peace.  We are consciousness, when our lives are lost.  There's no end to the universe that each of our souls reach.  

We are infinity and you are here with me.  I can sense you sometimes as I breathe.  You are coaching me from the sidelines and those lessons you've taught, I repeat.  This changes nothing, nothing but everything.  I hear you tell me I'm gonna be fine.  I keep you with me and I hear the words you'd say, in my mind, in my mind, you're still alive.  In my mind, in my mind, you're still alive.

You're my shadow, when I feel alone.  You're the sun warming my skin.  You're the places that we used to go.  You're the answers I sense when I'm asking questions.  This changes nothing, nothing but everything.  I hear you tell me I'm gonna be fine.  I keep you with me and I hear the words you'd say in my mind, in my mind, you're still alive.  In my mind, in my mind, you're still alive.

Cause we are light and we are energy and we are impulses that travel through minds.  I can feel you sometimes like you're here with me, in my mind, in my mind, in my mind, in my mind, in my mind, in my mind, you're still alive."

Love and peace,

Kristina <3
