Kids Yoga Family Event Valentine's Day

It’s All About The Love, Right?

Valentine’s Day is coming and there are so many ways to celebrate sweethearts! Loved ones include partners, children and friends. For some, Galentine’s Day is the best day of the year! Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we celebrate each other. 

Love is defined in many ways. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, love is a verb: to hold dear and cherish. I have a few thoughts about common phrases people say about love. One of my favorite songs is by The Black Eyed Peas, Where Is The Love? And as much as I do love this song, it hurts my heart. The lyrics are:

  • People killin', people dyin'
  • Children hurtin', hear them cryin'
  • Can you practice what you preach?
  • And would you turn the other cheek?
  • Father, father, father, help us
  • Send some guidance from above
  • 'Cause people got me, got me questioning
  • Where is the love?

In the presence of world events, it is the right question, where is the love? I also hear people say, “show me some love” which is to say gimme some. I need what you’ve got and I want you to give it to me now. This one also kinds hurts my heart because it’s a demand.

Share the love feels really good to me. It says my cup is full, and therefore, I have some to share with you. It’s voluntary. It’s when you are so delighted by something you want to share it with those closest to you. That’s how I feel about yoga. I learned to Share the Love of the Practice from Larry Schultz. That’s what he did at It’s Yoga, and it’s what we do at IYK.

Come to our Valentine’s HighVibe Family Event on Sunday, February 12. A portion of proceeds benefits Hamilton Families.
