Today's Inspiration: Words of Love



I have always been a pretty verbal person when it comes to expressing emotion, some would say too much so. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve and rarely hide my feelings. If I care for you, I'm not shy about letting you know. With my family and close friends, I often say goodbye with an "I love you", even in e-mail. Since Mom's illness and the recent cancer diagnosis of a good friend (more about that later), I am even more inclined to so. Life is so short, and you never know if this will be the last conversation I have with the person, it might be the last time to tell them how I feel. Three little words that mean so much: I Love You.

You may experience the close bonds of friendship, which could make you feel like expressing your affection toward your loved ones today. Perhaps the kinship that you share with the people in your life might stimulate your desire to share your deepest feelings about the value and places that they have in your life. Speaking from your heart could help you to convey the depth of your love and take your relationships to an even greater level of closeness. While you are with the people you care about today, you might imagine that the words you have for them are coming directly from your heart, and that each word is enveloped in a field of bright, intense love energy. Visualizing your words as coming from this center of sincerity and unconditional love may infuse your messages with the fullness of your caring and tender intentions.

Channeling our words through our hearts allows us to put into our words the true depth of our feelings. Even when we are with people we care about and wish to express the nature of our emotions, it can be difficult for us to find the right words without sounding trite or contrived. Our hearts, however, are a conduit for our pure and complete love for others; when we speak from this energetic center, our words convey our true intentions. By communicating from your heart today, your loved ones will know, appreciate, and understand the real strength of the love behind your friendship.

Hello,

You are so right about how short life is. It is an important practice to tell those we love that we love them as often as possible, because, like you say, you never know if this time will be the last time. Sending healing thoughts your mothers way. Blessings...

Good afternoon ~ As I read your description of yourself I thought you were writing about me! I have often been accused of wearing my heart on my sleeve - like it's a bad thing. I think that my passionate, emotional, verbal heart is my strength. People always know where they stand with me. We can never ever say 'I LOVE YOU' enough. Take care.
