How To Become A Better Lover

Work like you don’t need the money.

Love like you’ve never been hurt.

Dance like nobody’s watching.

Satchel Paige 

My friend Jennifer Chernisky posted this quote on Facebook back in December.  As soon as I read the quote, I knew there was a blog post waiting to be written.

At first I thought the quote was good advice, but then I got to thinking about

“Love like you’ve never been hurt.”

And I realized that is not good advice – in my humble opinion.

“I’m So Hurt”

You learn from being hurt.

Your love improves from being hurt because

  • You know what not to do.
  • You know what to do differently.

So you can love better the next time.

As a result of your hurt, work like you do not need money and dance like no one is watching but…

Love like you have been hurt, hurt more than once.

Use being hurt to become a better lover.

Christmas Chant

I did a lot of thinking today and really do not have much to say.  I did find this quote that I wanted to share with you.

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love! 

Hamilton Wright Mabie

Stop and share love this holiday season, even in the midst of your grief. Whether you express it to family, friends, animals or even just sit and meditate about God’s love for you.  A love so strong, deep and powerful that He gave you His only son.

However if you are not feeling love, why not try chanting this over and over until you believe it. Write it down in your gratitude journal today.  

Besides giving love this holiday season, may you also be blessed with people showering you with love.

Michele Visits Dealey Plaza

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
John F. Kennedy
My family made several trips to Dallas to visit relatives when I was a child.  It was during one of those trips the following picture of me was taken at the Kennedy Memorial in Dealey Plaza.    
I was able to enlarge the picture enough to make out some of the words.  The plaque explains what happened on November 22nd, 1963 as the motorcade passed Dealey Plaza.

Reading The JFK Memorial, Dallas, TX

I leave you with President Kennedy’s most famous quote, including the second sentence which people usually leave out.
And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
John F. Kennedy,
 Inaugural address,
January 20, 1961
(P.S. The word “Love” is written on my slacks
The center of the “O” in love was orange.)
