Spread the Love
We live in a world where often it is easier to see the negative than it is the positive. Negativity has infiltrated our lives. It’s in the news, on social media, television and it’s becoming more and more difficult to avoid. But guess what? You can change that! Here are a few ways you can dig a little deeper and find the positive.
Love those around you. We encounter hundreds of people throughout the day in person and on social media. You can brighten someone’s day with a simple smile or a helping hand. Send some love by holding open a door, posting a comment on that cute photo, picking up litter, or sending a card “just because”. Spread kindness around like confetti!
Love your life. It may not always be perfect but it’s yours. Love and appreciate the simple things that make your life yours. A warm cup of coffee, the smell of fresh cut hay, the sound of a summer storm are all reminders to live in the present moment. Remember, you only get one shot at this and none of us get out alive!
Love yourself. Some days we can be our own worst critics. It may be easier to see all we haven’t achieved rather than what we have. Be kind to yourself and remember we are all a work in progress. Love yourself by doing things that make you feel good. Give yourself time to relax in a hot bath and reward yourself for being you.
And finally, express all this love every day, not just when Hallmark tells you to. Every day we are handed opportunities to share kindness. Make a conscious effort to slow down and see them!
