Whether your object(s) of affection is a sweetheart, the friends who keep you sane, your children/grandchildren, or your amazing animal companion(s), there are few things in life that bring greater joy and meaning to us as human beings than getting to share and receive love.
And with all that has been happening in our personal, national, and global world, feeding the fire of love has never been more important - or needed.
While it is far too easy to tune in to fear, anger, etc., no great decisions or true solutions have (and can) ever come from a state of disconnection, powerlessness, rage or pain; and I know, in my own personal experience, that when I operate from a place of clarity, kindness and calm (AKA love), THIS is when truly great ideas can be discovered, well-being can flow, bridges can be built, and solutions can be found.
It is with this spirit that I challenge YOU to join me, starting now, to show yourself and the world that love is bigger than anything that could ever be in the way, and that even the smallest acts of kindness can set very powerful wheels in motion :).
WANT TO MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR WORLD AND THE WORLD? JOIN ME FOR A SPECIAL CHALLENGE...
Here's what I'll be doing over the next 30 days (and beyond):
1. Connecting heart to heart with people I love and value in some way EVERY day:
-I'll be sending texts, e-mails, cards/letters to let people know how much I appreciate them, giving 3D time whenever possible and saying a special prayer every night for those I love:
"God/Source/Creator/Universe/Love: Thank you for helping ____ remember that s/he is loved and all is well. Thank you for helping ____ easily discover and embrace her/his path of least resistance to her/his greatest well-being."
2. Giving Love:
-This Thursday, 2/16 at 7pm, I'll be joining The Amazing Woman.org to share myself - and a very personal true story with highly personal new music - to be a catalyst for helping to "Build a Bridge Back to Love." FULL DETAILS HERE
RSVP via MEETUP HERE
-This year I will be joining a "Habitat for Humanity" build to help create a new home for a family in need. Want to join me? CLICK HERE to send me a message and I'll keep you posted :).
-All year I will be keeping my eyes and ears open for any solution-oriented events/marches/voting opportunities that support tolerance and positive changes in our country.
3. Feeding the love within:
-I'll be doing my very best to allow time to do things that feed my spirit and keep me physically and emotionally healthy :).
4. Expressing to INCREASE love:
-I'll be posting messages on social media sites (Facebook/etc.) that amplify love, joy, fun and the most positive aspects of our humanity. (On the other side of the coin, I'll also be doing the best I can to refrain from ranting, complaining or whining, as I've discovered that this only feeds negativity and does not solve anything.).
-I'll also be creating and performing music and hosting social events that help people feel better about life. (Stay tuned for more music and events this year :).)
5. Meeting anger with love & kindness:
-When met with anger, frustration, or less than helpful peeps, I will do my very best to be kind and remember that no one who is nasty, inconsiderate, controlling, hateful, etc. is in a healthy emotional place, and that he or she may be facing something extremely difficult or even deeply painful.
WILL YOU JOIN ME IN SHOWING YOURSELF AND THE WORLD THAT LOVE IS BIGGER?
Pick 1 thing (or more) from any of the 5 areas listed above and do it EVERY day for 30 days.
This may seem silly or small, but I truly believe that even only 1 person who approaches life and others with love and kindness is far more open to allowing solutions for her/himself and the world - for as we have seen time and time again, it is the lovers and visionaries that truly can and DO make a real and lasting difference.
Thank you for doing whatever feels good and right to you :).
