Letter from the Editor: Spring is in the Air

Letter from the Editor: Spring is in the Air

Last fall I attended a family wedding. My beautiful niece married her beloved in the courtyard of an historic home in Beaufort and afterward we all enjoyed a wonderful meal and a party. It was a happy, memory-making occasion with many family members in attendance – we ate, drank and danced until late in the evening. Family members were seated at a flower-laden head table, and I distinctly remember looking up and down, taking in the lovely view, and thinking that I loved each and every person seated there. I couldn’t have chosen better dinner companions. All of them know who I really am and are delighted by my company – and I feel the same way. Later, while telling friends about the wedding, I realized my fun wedding table applied to every area of my life. The people I invite into my world are all “sitting at my table,” and part of living my best life is making sure I love and trust every single one of them. Do they support my hopes and dreams? Am I completely comfortable being myself around them? I am blessed with a loving family and a beautiful tribe of friends, but it hasn’t always been that way. I invite you, dear reader, to ask yourself, “Who is sitting at my table?” “If I was planning my perfect party, would I want all of them seated around me?” And if the answer isn’t followed by a rush of love and affection, well, you know what to do. You are worthy of people who take joy in your company and accept you unconditionally. We all are.

Never love anyone who treats you like you’re ordinary.
