1. Welcome Notes

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all, including our new
subscribers. I welcome you to our CTJ family and,
once again, thank those of you who forward us to

I am taking a break in the Seven Steps to Successful
Goals series in order to honor this holiday of love. It
is too special a day to let go by without celebrating it
and the journey of love on which we all walk,
whether we are aware of it or not.

I wish you love, today and for the rest of your lives.

2. Whatever the Question, Love Is the Answer

Today is Valentine’s Day. The official day for lovers.

For me, Valentine’s Day is simply about loving.
Loving our lovers, loving our children, loving
ourSelves, loving our families, loving each other.
Loving Each Other. Period.

What if we made every day Valentine’s Day, a day to
consciously, actively, from our hearts, Love Each
Other? How might that change your life? How
might it change the world?

Love is a powerful energy. When it is the basis for the
answer to any question we are asked and any action
we take, it has the power to change the world.

3. Coaching: Live the Answer

Today and for the next week, as much as you
possibly can, consciously choose to come from love.

In all your actions, words, thoughts, come from a
place of love. When you think of the political situation
or the threat of terrorism, come from love. When you
speak of those in power or those who we call enemy,
come from love. When your coworker oversteps his
bounds, come from love when you talk to him.

Let go of the buts and the fear, the judgment and the
prejudice, the resentment and the need to be right,
and fill your life, your thoughts, your heart with love.

Send Valentine’s today. Hand out chocolate kisses at
the grocery store, send a single rose to someone who
is having a hard time. Throw love out into the world
in random, abundant, overflowing amounts.

And then continue to do it tomorrow.


Love lives forever and belies the passage of time. It is
what we take with us wherever we go.

The subject tonight is Love
And for tomorrow night as well,
As a matter of fact
I know of no better topic
For us to discuss
Until we all

There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this
world than for bread.
Mother Teresa

You will find, as you look back upon your life, that
the moments when you really lived are the moments
when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond

6. Humor: Rules for the Real World

No Valentine’s Day humor here. Just some very
funny observations. Enjoy!

1. I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing
sound as they go flying by.

2. Accept that some days you are the pigeon and
some days the statue.

3. Needing someone is like needing a parachute. If he
isn’t there the first time, chances are you won’t be
needing him again.

4. On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on
the escape key.

5. Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, because
you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

6. Everybody is somebody else’s weirdo.

7. Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to
their level, then beat you with experience.

8. Don’t be irreplaceable – if you can’t be replaced,
you can’t be promoted.

9. The more crap you put up with, the more crap you
are going to get.

10. Eat one live toad the first thing in the morning
and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the

11. If it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would
get done.

12. When you don’t know what to do, walk fast and
look worried.

13. When confronted by a difficult problem, you can
solve it more easily by reducing it to the question,
“How would the Lone Ranger handle this?”

Give yourself the gift of coming from love this week,
and as always, Celebrate Life!

Namaste, Margo
