One thing I love about Instagram is that it only has hearts, which means that if you don’t like something you just keep scrolling.
I made a commitment to read and respond to all the comments on my YouTube channel this month and I would have drowned in a sea of negativity if it weren’t for the positive comments of my followers. Their courage, honesty and raw vulnerability have touched me beyond words. Without them spreading the love I wouldn’t have made it this month. And now I want you to spread the love in your life.
Here are four ways we can all share the love in our life:
1. Love yourself.
Look in the mirror and compliment yourself. Find one thing about yourself that you just love.
2. Love online.
Compliment someone! It can be right here in this post. Compliment the person who commented before you. Or if you’ve watched someone’s posts but never commented publicly then do it this week. Or just leave a bunch of hearts everywhere. Send random love to your online world.
3. Love someone.
Look a friend or family member in the eye, tell them how much you love them, give them an honest compliment and then share a hug. Or, love a stranger, share a smile, give someone a compliment, buy the person in line behind you a cup of coffee.
4. Love your world.
For one entire day do not complain about anything. Instead, look for the blessing in every situation. Wake up in the morning and say, “life, I love you.”
The world is filled with beauty, love and grace. You just have to train your mind to see it and focus on it. Make love and gratitude your daily news report. Get out of bed each morning with the thought, I love my life and be thankful for the blessing of another day.
