It really is that simple. How can I love more and feel love more?
Yes, one of my top five strengths from the VIA survey of character strengths is Love, so maybe that’s why I focus on it so much. But I think there’s a reason they say, “love makes the world go round.” I believe we can never go wrong by bringing in more love.
I love to love. I love to love the people around me. I love to love my day and situation. I love to love my family and friends. I love to shine love on others and smile at strangers as I walk down the street. I love to make people laugh…and feel loved.
I get so much out of it. There is a difference in my day – in my life – when I choose to love. I can be angry, or I can let it go. I can feel hurt, or I can remember love. I can list all the wrongs I’ve received and pains I’ve suffered.
Or I can find something or someone to love right now.
I know I soar when I feel love pouring my way. I’m guessing everyone does. I know I feel more love pouring my way when I pour it out towards others.
If all I have is now, and all I need is love, then it’s pretty clear to me what my choice needs to be. I need to love, love me do.
