Today, respond to the demands of Love. Pay attention to that which has depth, beauty, artistry, meaning. Support connectness and belonging. Attend to the pains of our hearts (and others) with gentleness, authenticity, and care. Let Love support your priorities and create a life of substance. This requires some effort and attention so that we are not distracted from our true work by the constant bombardment of lesser demands from emails, long to do lists, and other people's opinions of what we should be doing.
