Welcome, 2019 – let’s make this our best year ever!
Our health is truly our greatest asset and most cherished blessing. Good health is valued among all walks of life and at every age, yet with our busy lives, it’s easy to neglect taking care of ourselves. Very few things evolve as quickly as health care today. That’s one reason we’re very happy to once a year ask our readers who they consider the Top Doctors they would recommend to their families and friends. We received recommendations for dentists, cosmetic surgeons, general health physicians, veterinarians and more. We’re honored to highlight 2019 Top Doctors and Beauty Experts starting on page 16.
When it comes to energizing our bodies, there’s a whole other world of information about how to stay active, moving, and motivated. The science of human energy is fascinating and constantly updating as well. We want to help you find various ways to make the most of your fitness, nutrition, and beauty programs – not just in January, but throughout the year. Bottom line: keep in mind that every day is yours, and make a conscience decision to take better care of yourself so you can take better care of everyone you love.
Speaking of love, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. I was reminded of the years I spent trying to figure out what love is. As I grew older and wiser, I no longer searched for answers. Instead, I embraced the beauty of its mystery. Yes, love has no logic and no reason; love is just love. If you’re in the market, be sure to visit our Small Guide for Brides on page 28.
I was never one who set out searching for love, but whenever I felt it, it was always about those small gestures. You know – those things you barely take into consideration but you know they make a huge difference. Love is in those random calls and texts you get in the middle of the day just to say “I love you” or “I miss you” or “I’m thinking of you.” Love is the way you remember someone – not when you’re alone or bored, but during your busiest moments when it’s hectic all around you but the thought of them brings a smile to your face. Love is being called “beautiful,” even when you’re not at your best. Love is walking through life fearless because you know someone has your back no matter what. Love is being your true self around them, with no secrets or hidden agendas and absolutely no pretenses. Love is in the moments you share together – the deepest thoughts, the craziest ideals, the corniest jokes – and knowing there’s no harm in being ridiculous around each other.
Call me a hopeless romantic, but I knew this love existed when I realized it wasn’t always about fancy dinners or extravagant trips. Love is genuinely from the heart. It’s the moments you share and the memories you make. Love is knowing you would still choose the same person all over again, any day of the week.
Until the next issue – take good care, love, and make every day count!
