January 20--What Makes Us Human?

Love and work are the cornerstones of our humanness.  --Sigmund Freud

    I agree! Love and work take us to all sorts of places in one human life. Fading quickly are the days when one stays with one profession or company for a whole lifetime of work. Already my sons in their early 30s have had a variety of work experiences. Companies generally don't offer the security they once did, so younger folks have to create their own by being inventive and flexible. I see this as a good thing!
    Love... we would not exist or be human without it. The heart is the center of our physical, emotional and spiritual life, and its very essence is love. It behooves us to nurture our hearts and expand our capacity for loving, starting with ourselves. From Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis: "Being honest with ourselves about ourselves is to love ourselves unconditionally, to love ourselves fiercely." The foundation of love for others is self-love. 
    Enjoy your Friday!

I'm most anxious to get back to "work" 😉😉
