It’s really all about love.
I mean, when you break it all down and get to the core of what really makes life wonderful, creates joy in relationships, inspires people to become the greatest version of themselves, and brings out the very best in all of humanity, it’s love.
Love can soften the hardest heart, break through the toughest barrier, and cause the amazing to become reality.
The best thing about love is that it’s free…it’s a gift. A gift to be given and received. And it’s so easy to give this gift away. You and I can give it to every single person we come into contact with, and we can do that every single day. It literally costs nothing to love, making the return on investment nothing short of totally miraculous.
Focus on loving everyone and everything around you and you will absolutely begin to transform your life. Guaranteed.
I want to direct you to a link that I really think you’ll truly enjoy. To be fair, I’m doing a little tooting of my own horn, so to speak, because I want you to go to You Tube and listen to my daughter sing a song. The reason, aside from being a proud dad that would love to show off a little, is that it’s such a beautiful song and it speaks about the real transforming power of love. The song is Bette Midler’s classic, “The Rose”. I’d love to have you go see my little girl sing it. She’s performing it somewhat impromptu for her theater group, and although the quality is less than stellar (recorded on a cell phone), it is still as beautiful as it can be.
Here’s the You Tube link. Please feel free to “like” it and of course leave your comments there, if you feel inspired to do so.
But most importantly, see if this rendition stirs your heart just a little. To me, it’s precious and pure. Of course I am extremely biased, since it’s my little one that’s performing, but seriously, take two and half minutes and give it a listen. The honesty and innocence of a child singing the words is what gets my attention and really moves me.
Let yourself absorb it, and find the message intended just for you. Especially hear those last words that say, “remember, in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow, lies a seed that with the sun’s love, in the spring, becomes the rose”.
I think you’ll love it.
