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'm hanging it up in my bathroom, room, everywhere that I can see it everyday. It's been hard to smile genuinely in the faces of people you know hate you or you just can't stand yourself lol…but this is what God has asked so I've gotta try to be better at all of this.
I immediately made this my screen saver at work.
Touching words. One thing I really like about this websit is the constant positivity.
Much love for this post and the picture that was posted above it. It's hard to live like this and trying to get your loved ones to follow suit can be just as hard because you want them to become healthier mentally, but everyone needs to find their own way. I will definitely be checking out your blog. Thank you! 🙂
Wow! Thank you so much for this. As I have been acting out of character lately, this is definitely what I needed to reassess and correct my behavior. Thank you!
This is an amazing uplifting site. Thanks for the link curly nikki.
These are great words to live by. A lot of these I do the opposite of and I know I need to work on that!
