“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.” – The Notebook
Some one asked me the other day what I meant by “spread the love”. What is your passion? Is it reading? Fishing? Equines? Cooking? What ever your passion is “spread the love.” Let the whole world know.
Don’t keep it to yourself. Spread it around so everyone can see what your passion is. If it is crossword puzzles or taking a horse back ride on a moon lit night. I don’t care if it is “makeup artist” or librarian. Keep a journal of the things you think are important. Even if you think it is unimportant. Maybe it is to you but someone may learn from your passion for fishing, mending fences or perfectly content sitting at home. Maybe someone is depressed because they seem to be so content sitting at home doing nothing then they find out from you that you do too and all of a sudden because of the relief you provided them, they are ready to face the cold cruel world again.
Don’t be afraid to compliment someone. That may be just what they need at the time. Say “Hi” to people. Be kind to others and help each other. Read a good book lately? If you have then share it with the people around you. It is about you taking what you love and spreading it around and sharing it with others. The sweet part about it is it doesn’t cost you a penny. Nothing!
So you ask, why spread the love? What difference does it make? Good questions. You may never know if it touched anyone or not. See the elderly couple sitting in the corner booth? They look as if something is bothering them so when you go up to pay for your meal you also pay for theirs. Then you leave without saying a word. Did your act of spreading the love touch them? You will never know.
See the young lady staring at you as you do some sketches in the park? She seems really interested in what you are doing. Art is your passion so you call her over and share your sketch with her. You can see her face light up. Did you sharing your artwork with her touch her life? You will never know. However, what if I told you that the day you showed that young girl your work she became so mesmerized with it that she grew up to be a famous artist? Just because you took a few minutes to spread the love, you changed that young lady’s life.
One of my passions is photography. I usually have a pic or two in my blogs. Sometimes they don’t even have anything in common with what I am writing about. I put them in there hoping that they might inspire someone to pick up a camera and find a passion for photography. Spread the love!
I hope I have been able to impress upon you that by taking the time to “spread the love” you are making the world a better place. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. I hope you enjoyed it. Surround yourself with positive things and stay focused on your dreams. What ever you do, when you are following that dream “spread the love”!
