Love makes the world go round; this is no secret, but it is always an awe-inspiring experience when one is granted an opportunity to remember just how wonderful love is. I was privileged yesterday in this currency of love. My family, my friends, my co-workers, and my clients showered me in gifts, cards, cheer, hugs, birthday wishes, phone calls, Facebook posts, texts, and well, love.
Everyone has a personal currency of love to spend, and this is the one currency in the world that the more you spend it, the more it grows and comes back to you. Why is it then that we are hesitant at times to openly give our love? The people in our lives – those we know and those we don’t know – are desperate for this resource from us. They need our love, just as we need theirs. Churchill said it brilliantly: “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Let us give generously to one another.
So, in the words of one of the lovely cards I received yesterday:
GO ON –
Spend your personal love currency without abandon, and you will grow in wealth daily.
