All too often we forget that love isn’t all about romance. We do a great job replacing love with being in love (thank you, fairy tales and Hollywood)!
Especially if romantic love is not there, much of our focus goes into its absence rather than celebrating the love we have, even if it isn’t packaged in romance.
Romance, as wonderful as it is, is only an aspect of something much bigger, much more powerful, healing, liberating and transformational.
Give thanks for the love surrounding you today; the everyday heroes, small acts of big kindness, the friend who loves you so much he’s even willing to risk upsetting you with his honesty, the slightly annoying weekly phone call from your grandmother, the person who looks you in the eye and asks how you are.
What you give is what you get. Give love.
