Choose Love. Do Love. Be Love – Love is to be celebrated 365 days a year not just on Valentine’s Day if you ask me. But I guess for some, the reminder is good. Love people… cause all we need is love, and everything else is just everything else. This picture is of love between 2 people… could be any 2 people. Mindful, present, deliberate and God yes a lot of hard work it was… but even though that relationship is over, the love remains. It always does. Love is the only truth. Everything else is just stories. Divorce your stories… Marry the truth!
I told the women at my retreat last weekend, and then I watched as they embraced life from a new and much kinder perspective, now that they can love themselves enough first. It’s the underlying missing ingredient for almost every person who comes to me for life coaching. People go about their lives like it’s scare or there’s not enough of it, when in reality it is so abundant, it is everywhere. The signs are everywhere we refuse to see them, the messages are everywhere and we refuse to listen.
You can deny, argue, disagree, bitch and moan about it. You can accuse me of ‘patronizing’ you with all the love talk when the world around us is full of hate…just one scroll down my Facebook wall is enough to depress anyone nowadays. I know. But I say what you focus on expands. I say if you don’t like it, change it. I say, it starts right here, right now. It starts with me. It starts with you. How much do you love yourself? How much do you love your everyday? Your reflection in the mirror? The fat on your thighs? The person you live with? The work you do? The sky in the morning just because? Up the dose, turn up the love and don’t say you can’t or you don’t know how. I challenge you … You Can. Each and every one of us has the capacity to love beyond belief. It literally runs through our veins and it is infinite.
There’s so much of it to go around for everybody and everything. Yet we hold back. We tell ourselves lies. And we choose fear. Fear of rejection. Fear of not being enough. Fear of being open and vulnerable. Fear of not being accepted, appreciated or loved. Well let me tell you that is a load of horse crap. And it’s exactly that crap that makes people treat other people like garbage…. because we treat ourselves like garbage, feeding our own minds with crap that is not true. That is why people go to war, kill one another, abuse animals and pollute our planet. Enough! All we need is love people!
If you don’t start with loving yourself… why would you expect someone else to love you. All we need is love… start by giving it. Love is a verb too you know… it’s something you do. Do love. You can choose love, or you can choose fear. I choose love. I choose love again and again and again. Choose Love. Change your life. Impact others to do the same. Show our kids there’s another way. Transform this world.
