Feeling Loved

I just spent a long weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with friends I dearly love, and who love me dearly in return. There were laughter, tears, open-hearted sharing, and the opportunity to absorb bold, life-changing perspectives.
Our hotel room looked out onto the magnificent Atlantic Ocean and the awesome beach was only a street crossing away. What an incredible gift to walk along the shore, hearing the ocean waves break, feeling the sand and water on my feet, smelling the salt water, seeing the earth's beauty. It makes me feel extraordinarily loved by the planet and all its vibrant life.
In a Sunday talk, our group leader shared how a friend had recently taken her own life, and left a message saying she did not feel loved. Yet she was very much loved.
This is very serious stuff--do you feel loved? You are, but if you don't feel it, DO reach out. Let someone know what's on your heart. There is so much love and community and joy and hope available, and you deserve them all in overflowing abundance.
Loving life, loving you!
