“Don’t look for love. Quietly give it away and let it find you back.” – Unknown
Have you ever been so tired that you can’t see straight? Well that is me tonight, so I am going to make this short and sweet. It has been a short, but long weekend. Know what I mean? The theme has been “moving”. Never a fun thing, actually quite stressful whether it is for you or someone else, but nonetheless a necessary evil I suppose.
As much as I want to complain about helping others move I cannot because at the end of the day, it was done for people whom I love, and in this case, that is what love does.
Even as I am writing this post my eyes want to close, but I am committed to sharing something relevant, current and real every week, so that is what I am doing.
What have you done in the name of love lately? Like gave of yourself sacrificially for someone else, and expected no accolades in return? In many cases it is a rare event. After all, we only have so much energy, but when it is done with pure intentions, it can change a life for the better.
So the next time someone ask you to do something that causes you to stretch yourself or it disrupts your preplanned events, before you just say no or make an excuse about why you cannot do it, take a second look at what is motivating you to say no. Perhaps this is one of those moments for you to pay it forward, just because.
This was one of those moments for me, and even though I am completely exhausted and still have to rise up early for my day job, I have no regrets and honestly did it with peace in my heart (well after a little internal battle with myself first).
That said, I have no more words, but do it for love, whatever “it” is. My bed is awaiting me and I am going to sleep now. Pleasant dreams.
