Nothing is more exciting than the anticipation of opening a box of Godiva chocolates. Have you ever noticed that the best piece is always in the middle? As the first bite of chocolate melts in your mouth, a pool of bitter and sweet and creamy ecstasy envelops your taste buds with absolute delight. Each snap of covertures stimulates the body with caffeine, and injects a dose of serotonin into our love-hungry veins. As you finish your piece, you are enticed by several other perfect pieces that seem the same but find that they have completely different flavors and textures inside. When you have a genuine understanding of the real value that already exists within your true self, you can learn to appreciate everyone in your life and enjoy the the unique gifts that others have to offer. Feeling equal—that is, truly seeing your inherent equality—stops the need to strive and prove. It creates a peaceful perception that permeates your life and your energy with the vibrancy of Love. When you have reverence for yourself and your life, it radiates a brilliant vitality that brings you and the people you care about more of the gifts that you love and enjoy. Salute the divinity in yourself and each person you meet. Surround yourself with people who encourage you to be successful, happy and magnificent. Remember to appreciate all the gifts that are in your life. No genuine happiness can spring from the heart of a person who does not recognize and celebrate their own intrinsic value. So, this Valentine’s Day be grateful for all those perfect pieces of chocolate that make your Heart-shaped box complete!
