I read that the dog is still alive, so that is good.
But I was crying for today because so many people are lonely on this day, and it's a Saturday when many people aren't working (in addition to the many people who are unemployed). It's a quiet day and I feel very sad for everyone who is hurting today.
I think it's good to cry and get out the feelings. My stomach has been hurting so much lately because of stress with others. I am sensitive and I feel other people's pain right in my top stomach... feels tight and a hungry-like feeling even though I am not hungry (I eat regularly).
So I guess I just want to say I am sending a big HUG to all of us out there who are in some pain today for whatever reason-- lack of job, lack of love, lack of friends, or lack of focus.
My girl friend once told me when I was going through a bad time with someone, and I'm sending it to you: "WE DESERVE LOVE. WE DESERVE HUGS and KISSES."
Even if we don't have them, WE DESERVE THEM. It was a turning point in my life when she told me that, because I guess I really didn't believe that I deserved love because I came from a dysfunctional family who faught and fought when I was little. Nobody had any love to give-- it was all pain.
But now I'm healing from that-- going to lots of 12-step groups-- and knowing that I deserve love, but FIRST, I have to love myself.
So even though we don't have someone else loving us, we can love ourselves.
So do something really nice for yourself today, because it does not have to come from someone else. Take yourself and a friend to a movie or go alone to it or a nice dinner and get yourself some nice candy that makes you feel good, because YOU DESERVE IT.
We are all good people who are meant to love and be loved.
But first it's got to start with ourselves.
Happy Valentine's Day, lovely people. <tune to the Christina A. song: YOU are BEAUTFUL, in every single way.... Words can't bring you down."> or however that goes. ;)
ENJOY THIS DAY FOR YOU.
