Loving Someone, Somewhere- Thoughts On The Meaning Of Love

Last Update: February 14, 2013
Most of us think of Valentine's Day as way to show our friends and loved ones just how special they are to us. Knowing that someone, somewhere cares about us warms our heart and makes us smile. Hmmmm- This is a lovely thought, but just for a moment, let's look at the idea of LOVE in a fresh new way:

What if your rude co-worker, grumpy neighbor or even a stranger could feel cared about today? It does not take much effort to share the spirit of love! Perhaps that genuine compliment, kind word, or generous gesture you offer could make a difference to someone, somewhere. Could it change anything? I bet it could! Sometimes, even the smallest, most seemingly insignificant act could turn someone's day around or even change a life!

Take time today to remember those that you love, but also have generous spirit and love the "unlovely" or difficult people. You may never know how much it could mean to someone,somewhere!

With Love To You All,

Sammi:)

Great post. It is amazing what a big difference a little bit of a gesture, even just a smile will make. We just need to practice this approach a bit (or even a lot) more
Regards

Thank you sammikay, I really like you two, you were the first to reach out to me when I first joined. If i could just add to what you just said in case we are not fortunate enough to have someone around to offer a generous gesture. How can we prescribe our self one of the best treatments of all, that can reduce stress and even improve health, it is Oxytocin, the love hormone, it is produced by the pituitary gland. we feel it most when in true love, when we share physical contact even simply holding hands. but also spending time with pets. But life can be stressful at times so if we dont have that head over heals love then simply eat some dark chocolate, it actually full of antioxidants, imagine that tonight I am going to feel good, play some soft music, relax and hug and kiss your pet on top of the head.
