When you love life, it loves you back!
Do you believe this to be true? I never used to believe it. In fact, I felt life will always give me a curve ball. It is hard and sometimes hell. Anticipate trouble! Is this a healthy way to think? Have you felt like that?
So what if we decide to simply LOVE life. And… see what happens. Pourquoi pas? Why not? I challenge you to be honest and ask yourself this question. I did.
Of course, at first it seems like you are lying to yourself. Perhaps your life is filled with strife. Many transitions, divorce, financial challenges, and arguments. Or maybe, like me, you made poor choices, acted not in your best or in others best interest either. Messed up royally! Haven’t we all! It is never too late to turn towards the most natural and wonderful thing… LOVE.
We are co-creators of our lives. Perhaps whatever we give returns, sooner or later, and what we focus on expands and grows with time. If this is true… why not focus on love. Imagine – Feel It!
My dear friend used to say that love is meant to be expressed. In all our thoughts, words and actions we can feel and share it.
Admittedly, I academically believed this but internally continued to reject this concept; after all that would make me responsible. For me, I was still being held hostage by many past hurts and even some limiting believes of life’s potential. But, being a wee bit interested in science, I decided to challenge myself and let go to allow love!
Want LOVE? Give love too!
1. Wake up each morning and simply be. Take time to look around at the beauty that life offers. With all your senses take in the sights and sounds that this day has to offer. When you get in the shower feel it, smell it. When you have your morning coffee, taste it fully! Breathe in — deeply — this day has much love to present to you! Be open with all your senses to it!
Try it for a week and tell me what happens. I’d love to share in the beauty that will unfold.
2. Share the love you feel with others. You never know, but the kindest of gestures can make someones day. Smile at a stranger, open a door for an elderly man, give a few coins to a homeless family or donate a few hours to a local agency. Be creative, be open to sharing your love… be spontaneous!
3. My mother used to say turn your tongue seven times in your mouth before you speak. It has taken me years, and too many mistakes to count to know what she meant. Take time to use loving words, thoughts and direct actions.
4. Oh and don’t forget– cast your judgments aside.. That also means towards yourself too. Be loving and kind to you… that l will allow you love even more!
with love, I invite you to purely enjoy the process!
