ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

The next chapter in my dream…the possibilities are endless.

February 14 is Valentine’s Day. Although it is celebrated as a holiday of love today, it originated in 5th Century Rome as a tribute to St. Valentine, a Catholic bishop. For eight hundred years prior to the establishment of Valentine’s Day, the Romans had practiced a pagan celebration in mid-February commemorating young men’s rite of passage.

In an effort to do away with the pagan festival, Pope Gelasius ordered a change in the festival. He ordered a box to contain the names of saints. Both men and women were allowed to draw from the box, and the game was to emulate the ways of the saint they drew during the rest of the year.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this Valentine’s Day we could draw from a shoebox like the ones we hand decorated in kindergarten? What if we could draw out a message that allowed us to pursue our dream… for the next year? Just think about that! The possibilities are endless!

What if, for one year, we allowed ourselves to pursue our dream? What if, starting on February 14th, we gave ourselves permission to work on our dream? Baby steps that begin this week! Floaties on, we jump in the pool! I am getting excited just thinking about it!

My wish for you this Valentine’s Day is that you allow your dreams to take root.
