the suitcase for life - part vi

"the greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return"

every day i am reminded just how powerful love is.  to give love is amazing...to feel love is priceless.  this is why love is a big part of my suitcase for life.  like the quote from moulin rouge...i truly believe that love is one of the greatest things you will ever learn in life.

i have made a promise to always love myself first...once i do this, i have all the love in the world to give to everyone else!

if you decide to post the things in your suitcase for life please let me know!  i'd love to read all about it :)

  1. Gosh! You and so many others are just doing all these wonderfully deep, spiritually aware, and beautiful posts! It makes me feel like I don't think about my own life enough or the gifts I am given every day. I mean, I'm grateful, but I just don't think of them.

    Well, you have made me more aware. In my suitcase for life there would definately be love (for family and friends), writing, reading for plessure, a need to learn something everyday, reaching out to friends daily (either giving them a call, leaving comments on their blog or facebook, etc), and being productive with my art (all forms). I'll try and think of more and if I make it a post, I'll let you know.

    Thanks for the thoughts!

  3. Wow, I've missed coming by here everyday! My suitcase is packed full, and I'm not sure I'm coherent enough to think of all the things in it, but there's good stuff there and maybe one day I'll post some of it! :)

  4. Hello! I am your newest follower from a Monday Blog Hop. I would love it if you would follow back at one or all four of my blogs :)


    Happy Holidays!

  5. Your pictures are always so beautiful! And I love your suitcase...it overflows to all of us! XOXO

  6. Hey girl! Do you follow back when people leave comments and ask you to? Just wondering...I have been getting that alot. ANYWHO! LOVE Moulin Rouge and that is a great quote. I totally agree- we have to love ourselves first, but that is one of the hardest things EVER. When I am feeling confidant I feel like I am more giving- I serve others more, which in turn makes me feel better about myself. Its so nice knowing I can give my whole self to those I love because I love myself. Someday...:-)

  7. if a suitcase for life is packed with love, there will always be room for all the other necessities:) your blog is a surefire stop for inspiration and loveliness, and today is certainly no exception:) thanks for always pushing me to think deeper, love stronger, and be a better person!

  8. I 100% agree. We must love ourselves first. My father always taught me to never get my self worth from anyone else but my self. I am so glad for this advice early in life because I learned to love myself and therefore was able to give much more love! Thanks for this post! Also, I LOVE Moulin Rouge!

  9. love the suitcase for life. so true. you gotta learn to love yourself first before you can really love others.

  10. It's true you gotta learn to love yourself first. Just to love and be loved in return is the most beautiful thing in the world. Truly love your suitcase for life series!
