I awoke this morning with the mindset that I would write a blog entry today; but I had no idea what to write. My rule of thumb is: “if you don’t have anything good to write, then don’t write anything,” (which I have violated several times). I was prepared NOT to write unless an idea hit me – and it did – BIG TIME.
I received a gift from a friend; although she won’t know it until she reads this entry. The gift was in the form of her blog entry for today, which I thought was a very important posting. The title of it is: “Day 81 in the Pursuit of Love,” but don’t let that long title confuse you. This is just one in her series of entries, so that is why you can’t figure out what it’s about by the title. It is worth reading if you have a chance. Please check it out.
I commented about her post, and I mentioned about how we spent so much of our time chasing “the next big thing,” and missing out on the important things in life.
And that got me to think about what a “big thing” is – and what the first and BIGGEST thing is. This is an easy one and I bet you have figured it out by now. The first big thing is LOVE.
Maybe by now you are saying, “Duh! Of course. Tell me something I don’t know.” And you have a valid point, But, my point is that love is not thought about enough. It is not talked about enough. Love should be at the center of everything we do. Just think about how much better the world could be if we made this our credo – and we followed it.
So today, when you are out and about, or doing whatever you want to do, take a moment to step back and ask, “where is the love?” The more you think about it – the more you bring it into your being and your focus – the more it will find you.
May your day be surrounded by love!
