Where is the love?

 

 

As love month has come a close I took some time to reflect on what love is with the help of some extraordinary people. We all have different opinions about LOVE but we can all agree that LOVE makes the world a better place...

 

I was on my way to work on a ordinary Saturday morning, but this day for some reason, felt like it was in slow motion.  It felt this way because even though I was driving, I noticed a couple of individuals that stood out to me.  There was an elderly couple walking from a near by Starbucks, my guess, since each of them were holding their mermaid logo cups. I noticed that they were holding hands, laughing and smiling. The gentleman stopped and gave her a kiss on the cheek ever so gently and right after he put his arm around her. I thought to myself, that is the sweetest thing ever! I felt the love between them and it filled my heart. A couple of seconds later I noticed another lady, she was walking alone but she was smiling as well.  I noticed that she stopped, smelled the roses that were peaking out through someone’s garden. She looked up, felt the sunshine hit her face and smiled so bright it could have taken out the sun! Her smile made me smile and filled my heart. 

 

I thought about these two moments for the rest of the day.  I came to understand that these are great examples, at least to me that LOVE is around us all and love is in the eye of the beholder.  Don’t be too quick to think that love is hearts, rainbows and pink bunnies.  It’s not about that. Love my dear friends, comes from within and is not dependent on another person.  This type of love is the one that wakes you up in the morning, keeps you motivated and going, regardless of who is in or out of your life. It can be many things to each of us.  It’s a matter of appreciating what is in front of us already. When you love what you currently have you will find that love is EVERYWHERE.  You will understand that you already have love in your life; you just haven’t stopped to smell the roses. There is beauty in everything. No matter what you may be going through, no matter the storm, always remember that there is beauty even in the darkest times of our lives.  Love can be in a smile, in a hug, a kind gesture or comment. We must always remember to share love and be love. Love one another, love yourself and love the life you currently live.  Always spread love my friends. Xoxo

 

 

Seek wealth in your health,
