(I had to reuse this image because I thought it fit perfectly for today.)
Love is something we should all share. In these increasingly disturbing times we are living in, I’m sad to say I still feel there is just not enough love going around. It’s something we should all spread around, cherish, and try to make even the saddest person feel whenever we can. I feel it’s become my duty to spread this message lately.
We should not judge others for their disabilities, appearance, life choices, or otherwise. That is not our place as humans. Instead, try to see things from all angles. Ask yourself questions like “What if that were me?”, “I wonder what got them there?”, “How would I feel if someone said that to me?” etc. In other words, try to take a walk in their shoes. I know my preaching can’t change the world…but if I could stop just one person from being cruel or inconsiderate on such a lovely day, I’ve done my job.
So while you may exchange gifts today, smile in the face of others, don’t let envy or jealousy, or even anger enter your head. Today is a day not just for lovers, but for LOVE in general. Love your spouse/significant other, love your children, love your neighbor, maybe even love a complete stranger. When you open your mind, you open your heart.
May you all experience some peace and LOVE today.
