February 14 ~  Take Him Anyway Bridge Across Forever

"Infatuation is when you think he's as sexy as Robert Redford, as smart as Henry Kissinger, as noble as Ralph Nader, as funny as Woody Allen, and as athletic as Jimmy Connors. Love is when you realize that he's as sexy as Woody Allen, as smart as Jimmy Connors, as funny as Ralph Nader, as athletic as Henry Kissinger, and nothing like Robert Redford--but you'll take him anyway." ~ Judith Viorst

Love is a magical elixir that transforms and heals. Open your heart. Fill every relationship and every aspect of your life with heart-felt affection. With love, you are more vibrantly creative and attractive.

"In order to create," explained maestro Igor Stravinsky, "there must be a dynamic force, and what force is more potent than love?"

Love can make your spirit and mind soar. The passion opens the channels for creativity. As writer and teacher Leo Buscaglia put it, "We are all angels with but one wing. We fly only when we embrace."

Intimacy and supportive relationships keep you healthy, too. "Love is life," explained the great Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) in his classic War and Peace. "All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love."

The key to love? Simple: Just show someone acceptance and appreciation. Things are beautiful if you love them and all the good you put out will come right back to your heart.
