Love Makes the World Go Round                                        February 2006

chocolatesIt's February and love is in the air…

What most people think of when they see store aisles decorated in red and all the Valentine's Day merchandise on display is "romantic" love - the kind reserved for you and your one special someone. But regardless of whether there is a "significant other" in your life or not, YOU are the source of love in your life.

Consider a perspective of love from the inside out, starting with yourself and spreading to everyone you meet. There is an energy and warmth that comes from loving unconditionally - with no strings attached - and giving freely from the heart…to the cashier at the grocery store, the cab driver, the pharmacist, the ticket-taker at the ferry terminal, the waitress, people waiting in line with you at the bank - wherever you go, these are your neighbors in humanity - all part of our global community.

charity workCan you imagine how different the world would be if we were each to take it upon ourselves to spread the love around - instead of waiting for it to "happen" to us? Think about that.

If we look at global trends, it is usually times of crisis that bring people together. Think of the outpouring of love & generosity during the 2004 tsunami, or during Hurricane Katrina last year…complete strangers reaching out in a spirit of love to help others and make a difference.

It's a beautiful thing, and here's the kicker…why wait for a crisis in order to show our love and share a little piece of ourselves? It doesn't have to be huge - a sincere smile, a helping hand, a few kind words will do. We each have that opportunity RIGHT NOW.

Love is the stuff that makes life worth living - so go make some and spread it around!


From My Heart to Yours,
