Love


Does your cup runneth over with unconditional love?   

For many that kind of love is reserved for whom they feel are their soulmate, or for only those close family members, or friends, in their inner circle.  Some don't even know what love even feels like for various reasons they have simply shut themselves off to it. 

But what if our cups runneth over with acts of love for everyone, including ourselves and those we don't even know?  Would those simply acts of love be able to spread more love into the world.  

Turning on the news here in Philadelphia is like being besieged by negativity.  I cannot even begin to describe some of the horrible acts they report.  And the first thing that always comes to mind is what happened to love.  Why can't we all just show each other love.  What does showing anything but love to others actually accomplish?  

Life is a gift given to us, yes it's also full of less than perfect moments that we each have to deal with and that's where I think we all have a choice.  We can become consumed by the negativity or we can try our best to turn it around into love.  It might sound easy but in actuality it can be hard especially on those days nothing goes right, we feel less then loving, or say for example someone does something we feel is unforgivable or undeserving of love.  Those are the very moments that challenge us to rise above and choose love.

There are no right or wrong ways to show love.  It's simply doing what comes from the heart.  A random act of kindness, a word of encouragement, a compliment, showing compassion, helping someone in need, helping the helpless, whatever feels like love.  There is always, always someone in need of love.  And giving love is the best way to receive it.  Let's all try to let our cup runneth over with love each and everyday because love is the only thing that can truly change the world.
