All You Need Is Love!

I don't expect this to be profound or revolutionary but I heard someone reference another person the other day and the reference went something like this: She had a long list of people she hated.

Simply put, that made me sad.

Jesus said to love one another. There are countless poems about it. I believe that it is a topic in most movies, books and songs. And, people have made a career on the topic (think Hallmark).

I truly believe that it is in the human condition to love others. I think that if you look into another person's eyes and truly try and see where they are coming from then it is pretty hard to hate someone.

I believe that if you think about it, you will find that it is much more difficult and it takes so much extra energy to hate others. In fact, if we quit using our extra energy to hate, dislike and pick others apart, we may actually be able to be more productive and naturally make a positive impact on this world.

Life is too short to spend your time making enemies and writing lists of people you hate/dislike. Save yourself some time and energy and appreciate the differences that make us unique (even if those differences annoy you a bit).

Love is a choice you make from moment to moment. ~Barbara De Angelis
