The Surprising Act of Love
February 8, 2011 § Leave a comment
Love can change someone’s day. It’s that powerful of a force.
The grace of a smile or a listening ear or a look of an eye that tells someone that you are there for them, that you understand, it can be writing someone a note (on real paper, with a real pen, delivered through the post office!) of encouragement or expressing the value they bring to your life, it can be intentionally stepping into something for which you’ve had no previous experience, it can be expressed by giving someone a vision for their life and capabilities that they’d never have thought of for themselves, it can be done by denying yourself and your own motives and putting another ahead of you.
Oh, and yes, by the way, it should be front and center of your work life, too.
