Always Greet People With Love
A daily reflection from my upcoming book
Joy: There’s No Reason Not To
Lessons from Under My Mother’s Roof
by Todd Keough
I was always taught that you greet people with genuineness and love. I know for me that it can be hard at times. I may be having a bad day and may feel like I have no energy to extend love. However, when I do when I give from my heart and show love to another I receive that love in return. We all need to love and be loved. In this world we become in such a rush to do this or do that we lose sight of true human connection. I know that looking and seeing someone allows me to realize and feel my own beautiful humanity. I also know when someone look at and sees me that I feel a profound gift. We also deriver to greet ourselves with love everyday. When was the last time you looked in the mirror and said I love you?
Who do you know that you can greet with love? What situations will you be walking into today? I want you to imagine your day and all your activities. Who will you see? Where will you go? What will you do? How can you greet all of these situations and people with love? If we greet people with love we help the world live with less fear. You can begin today. Please reflect and write out what you can do today to greet people with love.
Today I want you to look at your reflection wherever you get a glimpse of it and turn to it and say I love you. This can either be out loud or in your head. How do you think this will make you feel? How will it allow you to be with yourself? This small act will allow you to begin greeting yourself with love at all times and in all circumstances.
All that is and ever was and that dwells inside of me. Help me to seem the love that you have for me and for all your creatures in every avenue of my life today. As you greet me everyday with a beautiful morning and love me throughout the day may I try to bring that love to others. We know that you love us and my prayer and my hope is that I can return that love to all I meet today.
Today I will greet all I see with love, I will love others and myself, my heart will dwell in love and release the fear.
