The Greatest Love of All

February for me continues with the theme of love. "Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all...". Of course that is a line from Whitney Houston's remake of one of her most famous songs & it still holds true.

Without self love, you can never expect to fully experience love. Although I was a Whitney fan years ago & I would ask the deejays in clubs to play her music, I was never a fanatic or obsessed with her. I appreciated her talent, her beauty & the light that shone in her spirit!

I am writing this entry because Whitney's passing has really touched me & I am surprised how sad I am as a result of it. I can only imagine what her family & loved ones are going through... & my thoughts are with them.

Of course there were troubled times & problems, but I'd rather focus & remember the Whitney we all loved when she burst out on the scene & we were all like ... whaaaatttt???? OMG, we loved this new talented diva.Who is this girl from Newark?

Celebrity in our world is a weird thing. Barbara Streisand had even said it many years ago, that when you are first starting out, everyone is supporting you & wants you to make it. But after awhile they want you to fail & will tear you apart! It's a very sad commentary on our society.

I only pray that this great talent is finally at peace & that she is once again singing her high rich deep notes in the choir surrounded by love from all the angels... as only she could be doing!

So Whitney... "You Are Every Woman", "You're My Baby Tonight" & "I Will Always Love You.' Thank you for all the happiness!

  3. Nice post. But really, did Whitney ever really learn about loving herself? Not sure that she did. In any case, RIP.

  4. Thanks Paul. I'd like to think that she did love herself at one time & just got lost along the way. You never really know what is going on inside a persons head, but I'm hoping she is finally at peace.
