Wouldn’t it be amazing if we lived in a world where our baristas always wished us a good day, the person at the front desk smiled, and every car stopped for the person crossing the street? Can you imagine living in a place where people helped one another, opened doors instead of slammed them, and pushed their ego aside to do all things with love?
Seems like a fantasy world, doesn’t it? Good news: it doesn’t have to be.
Your own world can be more like this. You may not like life’s circumstances, but you’re in charge of how you react to them. Despite all of the tragedy, heartache, and natural disaster happening around us, now the perfect opportunity to see the world in a more loving, gentle way.
It all starts by showing love to yourself.
When you show your own self compassion- giving yourself a break for mistakes, practicing self care, and waking each morning with a zest for life, you’ll live in a world where everything comes much easier and more naturally. I recently started reading Real Magic by Wayne Dyer, which got me thinking about love and purpose. We come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing, so what is our life all about if we don’t live it with love? Is it truly that important to get ahead of the line or push someone else so you can get the seat on the train?
Once you step outside of yourself and change your perspective a bit, you’ll be amazed at how much more loving the world around you becomes. Try it and see what happens!
