We Remember Love

ImagePresident Calvin Coolidge once said, “Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.” I believe this sentiment should extend to Valentine’s Day as well. I suppose it can seem a bit disheartening that we’ve had to establish a holiday to remind us to acknowledge love in our lives. One can, and probably will, argue that this particular holiday is manufactured solely for profit. It seems that Love has, like so many things, gone commercial. Well, duh. No PhD needed for that snippet of insight. But the essence of the day remains. Love is with us in so many forms and expressions. And, no matter what, we do remember it.

Have you ever forgotten your first love? Of course not. I certainly remember mine. That blonde Valerie Bertinelli doppelganger stole my heart lock, stock and barrel when I was 18. She was feisty, funny and she wore sarcasm like a second coat. No wonder we got along so well. She once filled out a customer comment card at a local pizza place entirely in French just because. What’s not to love about that? I was young and stupid and head-over-heels.

I remember how I would get tongue-tied whenever she was around. I still recall the innocent euphoria of our first kiss. And God knows I vividly remember how she made me feel with just the sound of her voice. We were going to be together forever because, when you’re 18, you know everything and every decision you make is not only brilliant but everlasting. I would, at this time, like to reiterate the whole “young and stupid” thing.

So, no, we weren’t together forever. Big shock there. But I have never forgotten her or that time. Big things, little things, you name the size and form. I remember them all—especially on a soul level. I don’t need Valentine’s Day to remember her or to tell anyone that I love them. As we all know life can get in the way and the obvious will sometimes get shoved to the wayside. When that happens just take a moment and remember. If there’s always room for Jell-O then there is always time to remind someone—even yourself—that you love them.

I often relay to my clients that if I could share any aspect of what I do with them it would be one thing and one thing only: the overwhelming sensation of pure love that comes from the Other Side. Our loved ones in spirit continually surround us in their unconditional love. And they would like nothing more than if we did the same with those on both sides of the veil. The best way I can describe how it feels to me is that it’s a cross between a thousand baskets of kittens being shoved in the room and a Hallmark moment on steroids. It’s pure and simple with an innocent intensity. It kinda reminds me of being young and stupid…

Take the time to tell those special people in your life that you love them. Family and friends, lovers and passersby. It doesn’t matter. Like the shoes remind us, just do it. You may not remember it 20 years from now but I’m willing to bet those on the receiving end will.
