“Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.” –Elbert Hubbard
It’s almost Valentine’s Day and we have one thing in mind, LOVE! Just a little over a month ago on New Year’s Eve, when the moon was blue and bright, bespoke the theme of the year, love. Disregarding society norms of screaming advertisements shouting about, “Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions,” I happily gloss over these temporary lists of potentials and opt in for practical and sustainable ways to living.
Now I ask you to take a step back for a moment, what does choosing a theme for an entire year look like to you? And secondly, if you were to choose the theme of love, what would this look like in your life?
For myself personally and for LadyLUX, it looks a little something like this: love is 100% unconditional and humble. It means being kind, patient and forgiving. It allows me to accept others, and myself and understand and learn from the journey, even when it’s incredibly painful. It gives me the ability to attempt to live each moment with more grace and knowledge than the ones prior. Love lets me infuse passion, joy, hope and creativity into my days—whether this be a conversation with another, my job or a moment of silence, with love by my side, connecting with self and others is a truly divine experience. Love is the light that illuminates my path that leads me to trust, acceptance and surrendering.
With time comes change—this is why I’ve abandoned New Year’s Resolutions. They’re to high risk and not enough of a pay-off. Embrace something into your life, and it’s there to stay. With love in your life, anything is possible. With fully accepting love and all of its infinite possibilities, it allows me to not only GIVE love, but RECEIVE love as well.
So, to honor the beauty and delicate art that we call love, I’ve found some LUX Luxuries from around the web that I thought would make great gestures of love to give oneself or another LUXie this Valentine’s Day. Now I don’t believe you have to spend money on love, but I do believe in well-defined style statements and punctuating yourself with items of purpose.
To love, and all of its infinite possibilities!
