Today has passed by all too quickly….and I am just now finding a quiet moment in which to share. It’s the love note wrapped around my delicious little bite-sized Dove Peppermint Bark that strikes me. Although the theme is holiday, the message is pure:
“If old acquaintances be forgot, give them a call and remember.”
To me, this reads: “If you’ve forgotten to honor and love yourself along the way, take time out to remember who you are.”
No one – and I mean no one – has the power to make you feel so loved, so revered and dignified as you do. The affections, kind words and actions of others can certainly brighten our day. But isn’t it true, when the day is over, and in fact when the day begins again – that it is YOU who stares back from the mirror. What we most desire to see in that visage is one who admires the person we have become. If we but take a moment….perhaps clear the fog from the glass….and really look into the eyes of our beholder…..we can remember. Remember the essence of our soul, Divinely created, here on this journey to become whole, to learn the lessons life offers us. See into the core of our being, understanding, open to the goodness that is ours. When we do, in that very second we find within the integrity and honor in being ourselves. There is no other love that offers us such beautiful, pure, heartfelt acceptance.
Don’t forget who you are. Remember to find time to see yourself with clear vision. And while you are looking….listen too, to the whispers of your heart.
