All the Single ladies, All the Single ladies!
To my dear single ladies out there, I've been thinking over the past few days how Valentine's Day is coming up. For some it is an exciting day, and for others, some fear it with a sad heart. I would like to reach out to anyone who may find themselves feeling this way on the Eve of Valentines. If I may, I wish to speak freely. Regardless of who you are, where you come from, where you live, and where you are going, I believe that you as a woman have a worth that is beyond anything that this world has to offer. Today, the world would have us believe that beauty is solely based on wealth, fortune, fame, and physical attractiveness. I know that this is not so. I know that inside each and every woman is a light. A light that burns within us, and yearns for us to reveal it. This light is one that contains more power than one can really know. I believe that many women today choose not to seek this light, because they fear just how powerful it truly is. They turn to worldly fashions and notions, and seek to replace the light with something that cannot be found. I believe that this light has the ability to change lives. It has the ability to light the darkness. It has the ability to console and to bring forth miracles in a world of confusion and fear. This light.. is kindness. This light, is laughter. This light, is virtue. This light, is love. This light, is truth. When one realizes their possession within of this light, they will start to realize a change in everything. A new day will be sought as a brand new opportunity to make this flame burn brighter. Each day, will bring joy and optimism amidst a world of difficulty. This light will speak to the heart, and reminds us of the infinite worth we hold as women. I would like to reach out to anyone who may feel sad, alone, downtrodden, forgotten, or discouraged. I believe that you can do anything that you put your mind to. I believe that dreams do come true, and that you can obtain absolutely anything if you are willing to work hard to get there. I also believe that you are never truly alone. I believe that you are a daughter of a loving God in heaven, and that He is very aware of your circumstances. I believe that prayers are answered, and that there is no where that faith can't take us. I know that miracles are real, and that I have witnessed them with my own eyes. To those who are waiting for Mr right: Do NOT give up hope. The world would like to convince us that if we do not have the perfect man in our life at this very moment, that our days our futile. The world would LOVE for us to give up, and to lose sight of our goals. But I say again, DO NOT give up. DO NOT give in. There is ALWAYS hope, and hope will always find a way if we allow it to shine through. I believe in happy endings. I believe that each and every one of you are royal, a daughter of a Heavenly King, and are intended to be treated as such. My sweet sisters, I plead for you to not settle for anything less than a man who treats you like the princess. YOU are a woman of infinite worth, and the man of your dreams will be the one who will never let you forget. No matter the trials, no matter the difficulties, your dreams are always on the horizon. A quote from one of my favorite musicals says simply, "If you reach for the stars, all you get are the stars. But, if you reach for the heavens, you get the stars thrown in." Don't ever stop reaching for the heavens. One day you will be surprised to look down at your hand and see stardust falling from your fingertips. Life is a beautiful thing. As a great man once said, we cannot simply wait for life to hand us our golden ticket. Our moment, is now. Our time, is now. Let us not delay in loving life, and most of all finding love for ourselves. To my sweet friends do not forget to love. Happy Valentine's day. All my heart, Calli
