Today you may wake up and choose joy. You can choose love, peace and kindness. You may choose to give from your heart and soul a listening ear to someone in need. You may give your voice with words of encouragement and affirmation. You may want to give a warm smile to a stranger on the street or a friendly hug to a neighbor. You may choose to be uniquely you by giving of and from yourself. Our pasts are often hurtful and ugly, but you may create a day that is helpful and beautiful. Let your past refine you, but don’t let it define you. Remember loving kindness is truly the greatest currency you have to give to others. You don’t need money in the bank. You just need an awareness to be kind and loving to those around you. Whether you know them personally or not, make this day the greatest day of your life and the life of someone else by just sharing loving kindness.
