Show Case Your Inner Pretty: Practice Loving Everyone

by Kim Jackson of Peace, Love and Pretty Things

We love our families, our friends and our romantic partners—that’s easy. The thing that takes work is practicing loving everyone else, and letting love be the conduit for our actions at all times.

When we think of love as general positive energy, in opposition to negativity, it becomes easier to see how we can love everyone we encounter. We send love out to everyone by practicing empathy, patience and understanding.

We practice loving everyone by being giving, and sharing what we have been blessed to have with those who are less fortunate; by being of service.

We are loving when we refrain from criticizing, gossip or speaking ill of those around us who fail to behave, look or think as we believe they should.

When we meet frustration with calm, and work to sort through the problem, we are love in practice.

It’s not always easy to offer that smile when we’re upset, to engage someone when we’re tired, or to excuse behavior that offends us—but it is possible….if we practice.


I choose to see this differently. I release my negativity and I choose to view life with a perspective of love and gratitude.
In every moment I have the opportunity to choose my thoughts; I choose thoughts filled with love and forgiveness.
I welcome energy, light and love into my heart today and I invite them to guide all my choices.
I recognize that their reaction to me isn’t about me at all. I choose to respond with love, knowing that they are suffering too.
I am love, and like attracts like.

PLPT is co-authored by Kim Jackson and GG Renee with the intention of connecting with women through messages of self-love and personal freedom. We believe that true beauty starts on the inside and radiates outward, so maintaining emotional health and balance should be an essential part of every woman’s beauty regimen. We use this platform as an opportunity to share our personal experiences, and to help other women who are seeking guidance to find their own truths and live fabulously.
