The feeling of love is the most powerful most potent healer there is. Expressing love joy acceptance brings so much light and love into the world. And yet most of us spend very little energy in expressions of love.
Why is that?
Well because it would be very awkward to come to work and say to your boss “I love you” not to mention worthy of a conversation with HR.
And yet times when it isn’t awkward like with family, we often put little effort into expressing love to those of us that matter most in our lives.
Imagine how much better the world would be if each person made a genuine effort to express love in one form or another to people every day, not just in the holidays.
Love doesn’t and sometimes shouldn’t (your boss, your employees) be expressed in words but it makes sense to express it in actions. Most importantly treating people with respect and consideration.
Simple expressions of love and respect you can do every day.
Nice Tips: to a server a tip is an expression of love and respect. It’s a tangible “thank you” that they can use to improve their lives. A $5 tip at the Starbucks makes a barista happy. Not because it’s a lot of money…its not, but as an expression of love, its kind of rare and much appreciated. Trust me you won’t miss that $5 but notice the next time your coffee may come out faster than before.
Respect: Treating people on the lowest rung society as equals may seem like an obvious way to be but you would be surprised how often the homeless person who hangs out near your job is treated very badly by strangers passing by. Get an extra coffee at that Starbucks and give it to them. It’s a small kindness but I promise it will mean a lot.
Small chores: My husband scored big points once for filling my car up full of gas when I had to leave early for a trade show. He hadn’t even told me I just got into the car then called and asked about it. That small 10 minutes of consideration made me feel more loved than 100 “I love you’ s” though I will say I love the words too. Everyone appreciated small things done for them so take 10 minutes and do someone’s chore for them.
Paying bills to contractors right away: I don’t mean the phone bill but rather bills to individuals like your housekeeper, the babysitter, your marketing person. Individuals who do service for you. Much like a nice tip, paying individuals in a timely manner shows love, but mostly respect more than just about any action you take.
Hold the door for someone: It is kindness not sexist to hold a door open for another, especially if that means you will end up behind that person in a long line and ladies that means you can do it to. It’s a small expression of love that puts a smile on just about everyone’s face.
Make an effort starting right now, today to express love to at least 5 people. You can do it in simple ways and complex ones but start right now to make that a thing and watch your whole world change.
