Beautiful, in my opinion, has nothing to do with how you look. It’s how you are as a person, and how you make others feel about themselves. After you leave someone, they should feel inspired, loved and capable. Too many times have I let myself slip into toxic friendships, and what I’m trying to say here – is don’t be the toxic person. We need to treat others exactly how we want to be treated. Love your neighbor as yourself.
We all know how it feels to be depressed, unworthy and unwanted. Right? And at some point, or multiple, we just wished someone would notice and help out a little. Our job as human beings, is to love every other human! We need to make our impact on the world. There’s already enough hate and violence. Help me throw a little sparkle in that bunch.
When people empower people, incredible things happen. It’s absolutely magical to know you’re the reason someone had a good day. So, tell your friend you love them, let that stranger in Walmart know their outfit is cute, tell that stressed mom she’s doing great. Lift other’s up.
Most of us give more love than we’ll ever get back. Love anyway.
This world has become such a dark place, and we need to do something about it. It doesn’t matter how young you are, it doesn’t matter who you are. You are fully capable of loving and being loved. When you lift up other’s, God will lift you up. When you make someone’s day, God will make your day.
“People who really want to make a difference in the world, usually do it, in one way or another. And I’ve noticed something about people who make a difference in the world: they hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, that every life matters. They get excited over one smile. They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and heal one wound. They aren’t determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they’re satisfied with small changes. Sometime’s they even transform cities and nations, and yes, the world.” – Beth Clark
I used to be the person that so desperately needed to hear the smallest compliment, or wished for a hug from a friend. I used to feel like no one knew I existed. And you know what drug me out of that dark place to the realization that, I’m not the only one?
This right here. The blogosphere. So please, I encourage you this month write something that is going to lift the people around you, show them they’re not alone and tell them they’re loved. Someone out there needs it desperately and would never dream of asking.
But also, remember to lift others up outside of here as well, in your home town, everyone you can. We’re all human, and no matter how perfect our lives may seem, we all struggle. Sometimes we get so caught up in ourselves and our own lives, we forget that.
with love, always
