February is American Heart Month!

February is here - American Heart Month!

This month we learn about ways to take care of our hearts and we celebrate LOVE!

This is a month to show your love and care for others and a month to show love to yourself.

The biggest struggle in life is the struggle to know, embrace, and accept ourselves, with all of our faults and imperfections. The stressors in life can beat us down or make us build walls around ourselves that are so dense that even our dearest friends and relatives can't get in. When we have the courage to let the walls down - to know and embrace ourselves, despite our human failings, we open the door to connecting in a more caring, empathetic, intimate way with others.

Let us learn to love ourselves so we can be more open and compassionate to others, and so we can take down the walls that limit who we can be and what we can contribute to this world. Let us become more mindful of our thoughts, feelings, and behavior as they have a direct impact on how we treat ourselves and others. Let us know our vulnerabilities as well as our strengths and achievements, and learn to love ourselves for both.

Let's LOVE eachother and ourselves not just this month, but everyday!
