Love how can we count the ways?

Love of each other
When people have challenges it's great to have empathy.
A simple hug and a kiss can make the world seem a brighter place.

Love of doing things together
 He picks. I take the shots, it's a harmonious arrangement.
 I make the apples strudels which he really loves, but not too many as we don't want to encourage love handles.

Love of children
 The greatest Love of all, sung by Whitney Houston.
I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

 Love of the divine
Just letting go, having faith and trusting that it will all work out exaclty as it's supposed to for the greater good is the path to  my serenity.

Serenity prayer
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Love where you live
No matter where you live there will always be pros and cons.
It's a matter of focusing on the great things that  home has to offer.
Fresh air, open spaces, walking opportunities, brilliant, sunny  and misty days
There's lots to be grateful for in this hidden gem, Rotorua.

 Love of Change
People often do geographicals to other places.
I seem to make friends mostly with people who move away.
This is good because it keeps things fresh and interesting.
I keep in contact with them and I  ask
Are you any happier living there?
The answer is always the same.
They are usually as happy as they were when they lived here because they take themselves, their relationships and  their baggage or balloons with them.
 You can do a geographcal and that's fine and often necessary but it can be just as important to work on your baggage as well. 

Love of flying free.
You can  feel trapped in a relationship.
Or you can feel free in one.
One persons prison is another persons paradise.
It's a matter of finding your own wings and  having the courage to let go and find your special place in the world.
Find out what it  is that God put you in this earth for and work your way towards it, one step at a time.
I am never happier than when I am creating.

 Love of Friendships

A good friend is supportive of you and your goals.
A good friend is a friend you can trust.
A good friend is fun, unique and interesting.

Lots of people come and go in and out of my life.
I always like to think people as reason, season or lifetime friends.
My  key to having harmonious relationships  is to work out which category each person belongs to and to treasure them for that special place.


Self Love
At the moment I'm enjoying being my own best friend. 
 It's fun to go out by myself  to movies, art openings and cultural events as I always meet people I know, have taught and like. 
People often ask me to join them, that's what's great about living in a small community.
Cultivating an air of independence is healthy, so that I don't become too reliant on others.
I'd like to have the courage to travel to Italy by myself , but I'm thinking at the moment I wouldn't be brave enough.
This is something I probably need to work on.

Love of your pets
This is one of my chief loves.
This guy is one of the best friends I have ever had.
He totally adores me and it's mutual .
I love him even when he does naughty things like bringing in rats.

 Love of your job
So many people hate what they do for a living but I love teaching from my studio, making paintings and mosaics, doing photography, writing articles for my blog and magazines and writing haiku poetry
Every day I wake up and face what I  have to do for the day and I count myself  lucky.
No days are the same, I never get bored. 
I only teach positive people who want to learn and that's not a case of being unrealistic, it's a case of focusing on what  I want and making it happen. 

I try to  surround myself with winners in terms of their attitude, this helps a lot.
I only make art that I  want to and people seem to like it so they commission me.
I have a supportive husband who believes in my goals.
I am grateful and I look forward with anticipation to the universe for continued abundance.
I have fantastic clients whose commissions and attendance of my classes I really appreciate.

All sorts of other love
There are probably all types of other love out in the world that I haven't covered here, I could go on all day and night.
But it's important to know when to stop so that I can indulge my other chief loves that of rest,  relaxation and time alone. 

Balance is really important. it's a matter of finding it.

Creative Quotes of the day
Such is the inconsistency of real love, that it is always awake to suspicion, however unreasonable; always requiring new assurances from the object of its interest.Ann Radcliffe

Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be.
Anton Chekhov
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.Carl Jung

 There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.
Charles M. Schulz
