write love — Don’t Forget About Love - Love is…



During the season of giving it is easy to get lost in the shuffle and forget the true meaning of this time of the year. But for me, a huge part of the holidays isn’t gifts, it’s extra doses of love. But what is love? Love is... 
… a big hug just when you need it most 
… a warm chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven 
… inviting an extra guest or two when you don’t really have room at the table, and knowing that isn’t what matters most 
… a kiss on the forehead 
… a smile and wave at a stranger 
… taking time to help those in need 
… leaving scarves, hats, and gloves on park benches for those who need them on a cold day 
… a text just to say you are thinking of someone 
… a hot, steamy shower 
… a room full of laughter 
… not looking in the mirror 
… making someone else smile 
… a street illuminated by holiday lights 
… cards in the mail 
… photos of loved ones 
… a fire in the fireplace 
… a newborn baby 
… slippers 
… the holidays 

Obviously you may have different definitions of what is love for you. But just make sure to step back and try to surround yourself with as much love as possible this year. From me to you, I hope your holidays are filled to the brim with love.

5 Motivational Quotes about Gratitude // Monday Motivation

It's the Thanksgiving week, and we can use a little more gratitude in our life.  So, today I am sharing few quotes about gratitude  to fill our hearts more with love and abundance and to remind us that life isn't bad at all!


“Sometimes life knocks you on your ass... get up, get up, get up!!!  Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.”  ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free


“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart,  it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”  ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh


“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”  ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love


“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”  ― Maya Angelou
