Greatest Love of All

This morning I awoke with a song in my head and…you guessed it! It was the Greatest Love of All by Whitney Houston. I could hear her singing in my mind and as I got the puppy out and about, I found myself softly singing the song to Buster.

It’s been a long journey to my 50’s as I’m sure it has for yours. But the one thing I have learned is what this song talks about – loving ourselves. It’s taken me a long time to learn to love me, especially after those whom I thought loved me, didn’t. The healing journey through breast cancer and through life’s challenges has been hard won. But I have healed and now, I help others, which in turn, helps me.

When we sit with someone who needs a caring listener, who has an open mind and kindness flows between us, we begin to heal. When we’re the ones who are helping someone else, all of that beautiful healing energy flows between us and helps us to elevate our loving vibrations! So we begin to love ourselves slowly but surely.

I love connecting and inspiring people and you’ve all been so kind and supportive to me. I hope that 2022 flows freely with kindness,love and caring to everyone so that we can all sing along with Whitney and mean it.

Shine On!

Here are the lyrics…in case you want to sing along and really think about them!

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

Everybody’s searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
And so I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone’s shadow
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me

The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

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

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone’s shadow
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me

The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
Is the greatest love of all

And if, by chance, that special place
That you’ve been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love
