Today, know that you are not meant to have a life of thankless labor, of drudgery. Love wants for you a life of abundance and joy. See evidence of this. Notice moment of beauty and kindness and humor and connection and creativity. See the gifts that Love is giving you, right now, and accept them. Don't imagine that Love wants you to serve through joyless self-sacrifice and work.
