When your heart is ready for love, love will come. That is the reflection of the day. Today, I’m going to get very personal with you. But I always get personal. I am an open book, literally! Now, I am writing a new chapter in my life and it is the chapter of love. For the past 5 years, I’ve really been focused on my mission of helping the underserved community, the book, the movement and I’ve also been spending a lot of time by myself understanding some of the decisions that I’ve made throughout the years of my life. I don’t want to call them mistakes because out of those challenging relationships, I’ve actually had my children and they’re beautiful. The biggest source of happiness, ironically, has come from painful relationships. But at this time and at this place, I decided that I was ready for love. A while back, I opened my heart to finding the right man to fulfill this new chapter of my life and to be the last person that I will spend the rest of my life with. I have to say that when I met John, who you are seeing in this picture, I realized very quickly that my heart was ready for him. One of the things that I did that helped me tremendously and is what I want to share with those of you that are looking for love, was first make sure that you are loving yourself. Self-love is necessary to be able to bring that love that is the right love. Because if you don’t know how to love yourself then, how do you expect that you’re going to be bringing that person that is going to know how to love you right. So one of the tools that I used was I created a list of “ I call it my “non-negotiable list”. On that list, I created 10 different categories of characteristics that needed to exist in this new person that I was going to find and choose to spend the rest of my life with. I was very clear on the things that needed to be there on that foundation. Ironically, I met John very quickly after I opened my heart and I realized that my heart was ready to attract this person. When I went over, as I got to know John more, the list with him, ironically every characteristic that I was looking for that was part of the non-negotiable list, he had. He qualifies according to my list. He needed to have these characteristic and now, I’m beginning to write a new chapter in my book. It is one that has not been written yet but is being written as we speak. I’m extremely excited to be able to share this with all of you. I’ve been sharing so much, so I wanted to share the joy of me falling in love with an amazing man and I am wishing the same for all of you out there that are looking for love. But first, we need to reflect on the things that I mentioned. You need to be able to love yourself like no one else loves you. In addition to that, you need to be very clear of what it is that you want in this person that you are planning to live your life with. Sometimes, we don’t know because if we don’t love ourselves, how do you know what you really want. It is a powerful tool to be able to create a non-negotiable list. So I encourage you, today, to create your list and open your heart because when your heart is ready for love, love will come.
