I figured I’d share a lesson that my mom taught me. She taught me to respect others, to give more than you take, and to go through hell and back to let people know that you love and care about them. I can’t imagine the number of times she’s driven all day to be at an event to support me.
As you could expect, she taught me this through her actions, and how she consistently goes above and beyond for others in her life. She does it so often that it has become second nature to her, and it is contagious!
But let’s focus on one part that serves as the root for everything else, and that is love. She makes everyone feel supported and cared for, and is so good at creating moments for others to feel that love.
So, send love. It is so easy to do yet so under-delivered. Sending a text that you are thinking about someone, going out of your way to do something small for someone else, or leaving a note for someone to see are all small ways you can share love. And in each of those cases, the gesture makes the other person’s day, and is extremely appreciated.
So, be sure to send love to someone important today. Although I should send love every day to my mom, I want to send a little extra today.
