how to show love

Polish My Crown

I love love. There’s nothing quite like spending time with someone who loves you unconditionally – no ifs, ands or buts about it. I shared a post back in February about love and recently re-read what I wrote today. Here’s what “six months ago me” posted:

People often view solely love as a feeling they have for their significant other or their family or their friends. While this type of love is important and vital, I also think it’s important to look at love from a larger scale. We are called to love e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e. That’s right, the bus driver. Your coworkers. Your neighbors. That person from high school who annoys you like no other. The person you pass by in the park.

I get it, I get it – this is a much different type of love than what we have in our intimate relationships. But that doesn’t mean it’s something we should disregard! You can love someone {and everyone} you meet by choosing to be patient, kind, forgiving, encouraging, humble, hospitable, caring, compassionate and respectful. This is something I feel very strongly about: radiating and spreading love to every person we meet is something that just turns right back to us. And for the better.

Rereading the post was a refreshing and wonderful reminder to show love each and every day. Now – today. So often, I pass through days with my head down and headphones in. This isn’t inherently bad, but does often block me from situations where I might be able to show love to someone else. Love is appreciating others. Love is accepting others. Love is wanting other people {both friends/family and strangers } to feel good and happy. 

I hope you choose to show love to someone in a new and wonderful way today!

  1. I love that first image, “How to Show Someone that You Love Them.” My favorite on that list is “fix their jacket hood if it’s out of place” -haha…it’s kinds of a pet peeve of mine, but also it’s the little things that make a difference!
