Fear is a liar; conquer it with the truth of love. You are loved and were born to love.
Love your family and friends by spending time with them, being generous, uplifting, loyal, and interested in them. Love each other as God has loved us. Love deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. Love is putting other’s needs before our own. Love keeps one another accountable. Love by sharing your bacon.
Love others by not judging them. That’s not to say I’m going to walk in a dark parking lot without some pepper spray. Caution and street smarts are a good thing. Love by wanting the best for them.
Love yourself by taking care of yourself, finding balance between work and play, choosing positive influences, and forgiving yourself when you need to. Love the adventures you have and the times you are by yourself and learning about life.
Love your past by appreciating how it made you into the person you are. Appreciate the people the spent the time to care for you, teach you, and laugh with you.
Love your present by working hard, playing hard, and investing into the future. Love your present by appreciating the blessings of your season. Love your present by blessing others.
Love your future by looking forward with expectant joy. Dream of all the adventures ahead. Think how you can make it happen, and don’t worry in the process.
Love the earth by daily hugging your tree. AKA go on beautiful walks and recycle.
Love your God by putting Him first in life. Love by giving all your mind, soul, and strength. Love by devotion and affection. Love by seeking Him and desiring to learn about Him. Love by seeking His path. Whether we are eating or working, blogging or painting, driving or reading, sleeping or star-gazing, we were made to love Him in everything we do.
Fear as a motivator through life is like blindly running forward. Love is a choice and lifestyle that is unchanging. Love as a motivator will lead us to joy, peace, and grace. Everyday I’m learning about love and growth; it is a necessary ingredient to a happy and abundant life.
