This month we’ve been talking about love. Why? Because love is what makes the world go ’round. People all around the world live in love each day. Unfortunately there’s also a part of the world bent on not loving. There are people out there who have developed, for whatever reason, a bad attitude towards love (and life).
Don’t get me wrong, I know that not everything plays out in a favorable way. I know that life can get you down. I’ve been there! But I chose not to stay there. Sure, I could stay mad at myself and others for what happened but what would be the benefit of that?
Yes, love is all about the benefits. If you’re in a great love relationship you’re usually willing to make some sacrifices so your relationship as a whole benefits. If you’re doing the job or owning the business you love you’re willing to take a pay cut for a bit or commute a little extra. Tom Robbins once said:
“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.”
If you really want to have the benefits of love in your life, it’s up to you to choose them. You can choose to spread hatred through the world, using up your short time on earth doing things that hurt people. Or, you can choose to spread love in little and big ways to everyone you meet. Choosing to spread love also means that love will find countless ways back to you, always returning each gift you give with a blessing to you.
Love isn’t about one day in the calendar (February 14th), it’s about the opportunity we each have each and every day to be and experience love. Starting today, will you join me in opening up to experience and share love? Click “like” and share your commitment to love others!
