Bring to mind all that you love…
Now imagine a world without love. Take all of those things you love and put them away to a place where you can never call them back. It is a dark, destructive, lonely place, isn’t it?
Love is everything. Love is all we are. Love is the only thing that really is. It’s not about who has the most money or the biggest house or the most toys. It’s not about being thin or looking young. It’s about love. It’s about all those things we love and all those things that make us feel loved.
We were created out of love in order to love and be loved. Nothing more, nothing less. Make it more and we get less. If we want love, we need to give love. Because when we give love we will get love back. Guaranteed.
Love is a choice. How you choose to go about your day and react to each person and situation is up to you. Life is stressful. Work that consumes more than just our time spent in the office; responsibilities that fill all of our “free” time; friends and family we feel constant demands from; news we have access to at all times from unlimited sources – our fast-paced lives are filled with negative energy. We go and go and go and our thoughts spin out of control until we are tired and sick.
How much of what you do every day is really something that defines you? How often do you allow yourself to retreat to what makes you smile and brings you joy? Does the stress outweigh the peace and love you could have instead? Do you think about work constantly? Do you dread talking to your friend because you just can’t hear one more “awful” thing that’s happened to her today? Do you sometimes wish you could just get in your car and drive and not look back?
You can live a life of love. You can choose to go through your day with a smile on your face instead of a frown. You can choose to fulfill your obligations and responsibilities with a light heart instead of a heavy one. You can choose to be the person you are meant to be instead of the person you have become, always feeling like life has dealt you a bad hand. If you change your mind to choose love instead of stress, maybe that great new job will find you. Maybe you will bring people into your life who believe in you. Maybe you will start believing in yourself.
Choose love and love will find you. Decide what is more important. Would you rather have peace of mind or be right? Would you rather love or hate? Would you rather feel whole again or continue to play the victim? If you said the latter in each of these then this isn’t for you. It’s for the rest of us who have decided we’ve had enough. It’s for the rest of us who have decided happiness is more important than anything egotistical or materialistic. It’s for the rest of us who want peace.
Choosing love changes everything. How could it not when love is everything? Choose love. The more you do, the more love will also choose you. It will change your life and maybe even help change the life of someone else along the way. That is the miracle choosing love will create.
