Happy New You! I am so happy you are here! Thank you for allowing me to love on you over the next 31 days! By signing up, you will receive love from me daily! Some will require you to take action and some you will need to simply receive...just because!
LOVE IS...you don't have to do anything to earn it, buy it, understand it or interpret it. Love simply is! All you have to do is just receive it!
Today's Love Habit: Practice receiving LOVE!
UGH! Who ever feels like forgiving? NO ONE! Forgiveness isn't a feeling, it's a choice! In every successful relationship, there is forgiveness. Healthy, thriving relationships simply cannot survive without it! Whether it's your spouse or co-worker, you can choose to give the gift of forgiveness!
Today's Love Habit: Think of someone who offended you. When you currently think of that person or interact with them, do you still want to punish them for what they did to you OR do you still pull your love away?
If so. . .
That person needs the gift of your forgiveness! Remember, you have to choose to let the hurt go! Only then, will YOU be free from the offense and healing can begin! Congratulations!
When you pursue something, you chase after it until it's caught right? You pursue those things that are a priority! Is there something or someone you love that you have stopped pursuing?
Today's Love Habit: Spend time today meditating on what or who you love and what action you WILL take today to make that which you love a priority!
Love allows the freedom to choose . . .without guilt, manipulation, obligation, anxiety or retaliation.
Today's Love Habit: Give yourself permission to choose your truth! Practice honoring your truth and celebrating honesty over obligation!
Have you ever had something amazing happen to you and when you share the news, someone else genuinely shares in your joy & excitement as if it were happening to them? It makes you feel loved and supported, right?
Today's Love Habit: Celebrate someone else's amazing news today, and watch their heart light up!
LOVE FILLS THE NEED!
You know that girlfriend who knows you're overwhelmed with life, but watches your kids to give you a break, because she knows you're about to lose it. Or you haven't been able to wash the clothes in weeks, so she spends her day off washing and folding clothes and cleaning your house for you, to help you get a handle on life? Everyone deserves a a girlfriend like that!
Can't think of someone? Start a trend!
Today's Love Habit: Be that person for someone else this week! Be the love you want to see in your life! It all starts with you! Love fills!
Some people are really hard to love through their prickly nature. But, because you were created from love, for love, your love can endure all things!
Today's Love Habit: Recall a time in your life when you felt loved and you know you didn't deserve it. How did it make you feel?
LOVE IS UNSTOPPABLE!
The dictionary defines "unstoppable" as incapable of being stopped!
I love movies, especially "tear-jerkers." They are the perfect escape for me. You know those movies where someone overcomes every obstacles and challenge and monsoon to finally reach the ONE they love?
That's the same kind of love God has for you!
Today's Love Habit: Align your actions with the ONE thing you LOVE more than anything, and make your love incapable of being stopped!
Punishing to control or manipulate makes you think you've won, but only LOVE always wins!
Today's Love Habit: Practicing LOVE makes PERFECT!
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgement; because as He is, so are we in this world.
1 John 4:17 NKJV
Today's Love Habit: God has placed His Spirit on the inside of you! Be an expression of God in everything you do!
LOVE IS PATIENT!
Living in a digital age, where social media breeds comparison and competition, patience is NOT on the top of people's most wanted list! Every one wants things instantly and in a hurry and it often eliminates the beauty of . . . "waiting."
Today's Love Habit: Take a social media break and instead incorporate meditation into your daily routine. Slow life down a bit and practice a little patience.
LOVE IS FEARLESS!
What do you LOVE so much, that you are willing to die for it? . . . Family? Justice? Property? Faith?
Today's Love Habit: LOVE FEARLESSLY!
Love is comfortable in who she is created to be. She doesn't earn to prove and she prove to earn. She rests in knowing she is who God says she is.
Today's Love Habit: Choose to just BE! Don't force . . . F-L-O-W.
You've scored the winning goal and won the championship! You glance at the people you love supporting you in the stands...and see them cheering like crazy! How does it feel?
I have 3 school-aged children and I am the Mom cheering like crazy in the stands! While my preteen pretends to be embarrassed by my love expressed from the sidelines, I remember the moment when I didn't cheer and scream like normal when she was called up to receive her award. Immediately afterwards, she said, "Mom! What happened? You didn't cheer and shout when I went to get my award."
Today's Love Habit: Cheer for those you love from the sidelines! ...They're looking for you in the stands!
LOVE DOESN'T KEEP SCORE!
Tired of hearing someone say, "I'm sorry!" but never changing their behavior?
Today's Love Habit: Give grace today, even though they may not deserve it.
