Happy Valentine’s Day!
Love is contagious.
We can’t quarantine love.
Love is the answer to restore ourselves, our relationships, and the world.
When we feel love, and show love toward others, our perception and perspective change. So why not make every action we take in the spirit of love every single day?
Yes, embrace a Valentine mindset year-round.
When I was five, I learned from a most loving person, “You might not like someone, but you gotta love’ em! There is so much hatred in this world there is no room for more!” To this day, these profound words make up who I am.
Yes, my heart knows that love is the answer to live an abundant life.
From this moment onward, we have choices about how we walk, talk, play, work, love, and live our lives. When you know who you are, what you love to do, and have a purposeful why — love thrives.
Yes, being loving, I make greater contributions.
We set an example every day for our children. If we focus on the beauty of life, they will learn the meaning of love through our actions. Showing appreciation and gratitude is a love language we all enjoy.
Offering a box of chocolates is like the cherry on the top.

Send virtual cards … One interesting fact from the article is that Valentine’s Day goes beyond giving a card, flowers, or a box of chocolates. Americans began exchanging hand-made valentines in the early 1700s. In the 1840s, Esther A. Howland is credited with selling the first mass-produced valentines in America. Howland, known as the “Mother of the Valentine,” made elaborate creations with lace, ribbons and colorful pictures. Today, according to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated 145 million Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year, with Christmas the only one to outshine this day of love.
Big Love and Aloha

If We Could Talk…
If we could talk face to face, first I would say, Aloha, a sincere welcome. Then I might ask you when and where you were born, and about your family and friends. Why? Because then I can better understand what you may have experienced and what geographic and generational environments may have helped shape the person you are today.
Are You Staying Positive and Proactive?
There are many new opportunities arising and I share with you some inspiration that can guide you to reimagine. The more we can help each other stay positive, the better. The more we help one another, the better we feel. We can rise like a Phoenix.
