When was the last time you told someone you loved them? When was the last time you told someone you appreciated them? It could be someone close to you or a coworker you only share a shift with. When was the last time you looked at the person helping you, waiting on you, ringing up your purchases, looked at them directly in their eyes and thanked them? When was the last time you wished someone have a nice day . . . and genuinely meant it?
It should be obvious and something we do nearly every minute of the day when we encounter others, yet we don’t. Like Golum we hoard our words of praise and love and ration them out, missing countless opportunities to pass on Positivity and thereby increase the good vibes in the Universe.
Why does it seem easier to bitch about the things going wrong in the world today, instead of discussing all the good that happens in one day, starting with the fact that you’ve been given one more day?
Living in the Now, means being aware that at any moment Life as you know it might change. This isn’t meant to scare you. It’s meant to allow you to release all the other things that weigh you down and take away the Joy of living on a minute by minute basis.
Love should be shared. It should be spread and passed on, not kept under wraps. You shouldn’t need to know me personally to wish me well or even love me. I don’t need to know you to do the same. Though we may never meet, my wish is the same as if we had, that you know you are loved and appreciated. That you have a Purpose here in these moments far greater than simply paying bills or working at a job you hate to make ends meet. You have all the power to make the world a better place. It starts with you and your wish for everyone you meet to live in Joy and Love… and of course . . .
