I believe that a well-lived life is a life spent completely filled with love.
A life that is spent with love means that a person uses opportunities that come their way to spread joy and happiness and to lift up, encourage and affirm others.
In my own life I can remember being on the receiving end of love on many occasions and even if it was just a small act of kindness, my heart was always touched and the gift of love was very deeply appreciated.
That’s how I know that our acts of love are never in vain. Even if we don’t hear from that person again, you can bet that they will remember it in their hearts longer than you think.
Our kindnesses are remembered and that’s reason enough we should want to be a blessing and lead our lives with love.
We don’t have to go out of our way to show love. Just being aware of what’s going on around us with those we come in contact is usually enough.
I encourage you that your life can be the person through which many lives will rise higher and become better because of your positive interaction with them. Never think that you can’t make a significant difference, because you can.
In the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, it is funny how the best parts of them can be those moments when we get to share love with others.
Start at home with those you love. Look them in the eye, and tell them “I love you.” Smile at the cashier in the grocery store, and compliment a friend, and don’t forget to say something nice to a stranger. Open a door for someone, help an elderly person with their bags, and do a few random acts of kindness when no one is looking.
It takes so little time to live in love. Moments of love lead to a season of love and a season of love leads to a lifetime of love. Let love keep you lifted and lift those who you come in contact with.
