“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.” ~William W. Purkey
We have all heard that LOVE is the answer. We are called to love everyone even if they do us wrong. But …… I have come to know that love can’t change someone else – it changes you.
When you have been hurt or wronged by someone it isn’t easy to let go and say I forgive you for what you’ve done. WE ALL have been hurt. It’s a part of life just as breathing in and out. The best way to heal is to forgive the other person and love yourself. That doesn’t mean you have that person in your life anymore. It means you wish them the best, pray for them, and learn the lesson you were suppose to learn from the relationship.
I often wonder if loving someone plants a seed of love in them. I know that I always see the good in people and believe they are honest and trust worthy, but there are people out there that aren’t. I hope that my showing love or kindness plants even a small seed. However, like I said before – it may not change them, but I know it changes me.
Love is good. Showing love is even better. And being loved by someone – is the best!
Love & Light,
