    Countdown to Valentine’s Day-February 1, 2016

    Before we discuss the love we want let’s celebrate the love around us. Celebrating the love from your mother, father, niece, children, nephews, cousins, friends, or grandparents is a great way to invite love energy into your life.  If you give and receive love from those around you it delights your heart and your spirit. Having this inner happiness radiates to others and your light attracts others to your inner joy, peace, and fulfillment within yourself.  Love is all around us. If we celebrate the joy we experience from others rather than focusing on the one element of love that is missing, our hearts will surely be blessed. In doing so your love energy will attract others that find your inner joy intoxicating.

    Words of wisdom:
    “People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.”
    P.S. Don’t try to make a season a lifetime.

      I think too often people concern themselves with whom they attract.

      The truth is if you're "attractive" you have no control over who is drawn towards you! I'm sure Halle Berry, Idris  Elba, Denzel Washington, or Vanessa Williams have millions of people who are (attracted to them).

      Where people get in trouble is with whom (they are attracted to) or drawn towards! Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
      It's important to learn to choose wisely.

      Valentine's Day is just a commercial day for marketing greeting cards, flowers, candy, jewelry, and increasing restaurant reservations.

      There's an alternative celebration called S.A.D. (Single Awareness Day)
      On Singles Awareness Day, single people gather to celebrate or to commiserate in their single status. Some want to remind romantic couples that they don't need to be in a relationship to celebrate life.

      Common activities during Singles Awareness Day include, single events, traveling, volunteering, treating oneself to popular activities, gathering of family and friends, and gift giving for oneself.

      The only real difference between January 14th and February 14th is the meaning (you) give to the day! Single Awareness Day is also on Feb. 14th.
      You can choose to see the glass as being half full or half empty!

      The truth of the matter is there are people who are in relationships, married, and single who would love to switch places with you on any given day. When it comes to love and relationships most of us have played "musical chairs" throughout our lives. Last Valentine's Day you were with someone, this year you're not, and only time will tell what next year will bring. It's important to simply learn to enjoy and ride the waves in life.

        Never heard of Singles Awareness Day!
        Yes you are right, people are attracted to people based strictly on the physical but there is an inner draw when you have a good spirit that attracts others as well.  Have you noticed that people that aren't so attractive draw people to them just be having a good spirit? I've noticed people that just have a cool spirit and good energy that draws others, they themselves are not that attractive.

        Single awareness day sounds like fun. Are there local events? Learned something new today. Cool

          Generally speaking when it comes to (men) they tend not to approach women unless they are physically attracted to them. All the other inner spirit and personality traits are "icing on the cake".

          However the initial impetus to approach a woman and ask her out is driven by whether or not he is attracted to her physically.

          Unfortunately this is one of those "gender differences" that often causes issues. A man {assumes} a woman also only goes out with men she is physically attracted to as well. However there are lots of women who will elect to go out with men they have NO romantic interest in!

          They just wanted to try out the restaurant, see the play, attend the concert, or simply had no plans for that day. The date suggestion sounded like a "fun activity".  Naturally when the guy leans in for a good-night kiss all is revealed. They approached the date with different mindsets!

          I tell women if a guy asks you out {he is physically attracted to you}, has romantic or sexual interest in you. Armed with that information you're in a position to avoid any misunderstandings by not  going out with him.

          It's rather naïve to believe a man is going to approach a woman whom he considers unattractive to spend his hard earned money on for an evening out. That's not how men think and women should know this.

          Having said that there are instances of "mix matched couples" where one is considered attractive and the other isn't or is considered ugly.

          Here again is an area where many women differ from men. If a woman has had her share of "pretty boys" and they've hurt her over and over again she is more likely to give an "average" looking guy a shot if he treats her well, is intelligent, has a great sense of humor, and has his financial act together

          Generally speaking those relationships came about via friendship first.
          There was no initial romantic interest but overtime something changed.

          It's like a hot guy in high school gets tutored in algebra by a plain Jane and over the time they spend together he finds himself (drawn) to her personality. He gets an "A" on a test and goes to hug her to show his appreciation and suddenly finds himself kissing her...etc

          Odds are he never would have approached her if he didn't (need) her!
          It was only through his need and time together that his feelings changed.
