month of love: part 2

The other day my girlfriend showed up with a box of beautiful french pastries. Her generous act of kindness warmed my heart.  When someone does something authentically heart-felt, it immediately creates a ripple effect. I felt gratitude for her action and in turn it makes me want to return the favor or pass it on. It’s a beautiful circle. Give love, receive love.

We can take inspiration from the golden rule: Do unto others as you would do unto yourself. It is a message that withstands generations, holds the potential to unify political and religious borders, and is comprehended (though not always applied) by people aged 2 to 102 years old. It’s a simple yet not easy practice, in giving to others, we receive. 

AFFIRM: Today, I will treat others as I would like to be treated. In giving, I receive.
