February 14, 2010

It is a new lunar year, glowing and shiny with promise. The year of the Tiger, for courage and ferocity. For passion and the mad love that keeps us all motivated. For the conviction that wins us gold and glory.

Love is a complicated, many-feathered splendor. If you feel lonely today, stop. Because love isn't a person or a ring or a heart-shaped box of chocolates. Love is what you do.

My hope for you, this first courageous day, is that you spend time doing something you love. If the opportunity presents itself, I hope you can make someone else feel that love, too.

There is something you do that's beautiful and magical and it makes the world a better place. Share it, because we all could use a little more wonder in our lives.

Thanks, Chan. I needed to hear this today - and I wish you the same. :)

Yes, you would love to follow her on twitter. BUT you can't. Because you're Anonymous.

Woe for your identity-lack. Woe.

Wonderful post, Chandra. I think we should all focus love as a way of being more in our lives. We could start a revolution :)
