When it is Hard to Love, Love Harder

12 WAYS TO LOVE HARDER

  1. Go up to someone you’ve never met before, hand them a $10 bill and say, “You look absolutely awesome/stunning/gorgeous/beautiful/handsome (whatever you want to say!)” followed by, “Have a great day!”
  2. When you see a police officer, fire fighter, a service man or woman, nurse, doctor, EMT, etc.  – Thank them!
  3. Ask, “What may I do to help?”
  4. Offer to buy a homeless person whatever he wants from the store he’s sitting in front of.
  5. Do a 30-day forgiveness meditation for someone you are angry with or you dislike… personal or public!
  6. Admit you were wrong, but don’t ask for forgiveness.
  7. Write someone a Letter of Appreciation.
  8. Be lavish with your verbal praise… and mean it.
  9. Don’t just wish someone a happy birthday on Facebook… text them; call them; send a card.
  10. Choose who you associate with… Stop associating with people who don’t do anything but make you feel bad about yourself or your life.
  11. If you can’t do that… make a list ahead of time of things to talk about with those people that do not involve complaining about life.
  12. As Mother Teresa once said, “People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.  Love them any way.”
