Getting Real About Love on Valentine’s Day

​Surrounded by love, ✨💛 ✨ that’s how I feel.

But no matter how pretty to look at, love isn’t sugar sweet. Love is back-breaking work sometimes; a long, slow slog through the mud.

Far from fantasy, love is an unflinching mirror. It calls you to your best self while conjuring up your darkest shadows.

In love you cannot hide, for hearts do not meet outside truth. To love you must go beyond your limits…again and again and again.

I know no greater teacher than love, nor have I ever been a more humble student.

For all those who share their love with me: I see you. I have learned from you. I am inspired by you. I believe in you. I am proud of you.

From the heights of soaring delight to the depths of agonizing struggle, love is a journey I wouldn’t trade for anything.

As from my own marriage and the couples who work with me, I’ve got one thing to say: I’m all in.
