Ever have one of those days where you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed for no obvious reason? And that “no reason” soon steamrolls your entire day and you find yourself in the depths of a low, awful mood and feeling dark and broody over absolutely everything? That happens to everyone, right? It happened to me today. And let me tell you, it wasn’t pretty.
I was in such a foul mood and feeling down about nearly everything in my life. My sweet, supportive friends had to field several whiny emails and phone calls from me complaining about my life. They tried cheering me up to no avail. I knew I had to get out of this funk somehow – but how? I sent a quick shout-out to my spirit guides asking for a little pick-me-up. Only 5 minutes later, I stumbled across this quote:
“Let love get in the way of everything else”.
There it was. In big, bold letters for me to read. My answer to crawling out of this dark mood was in those 9 simple words. I sat and thought about it for a minute. “Let love get in the way of everything else”. I might have some less-than-ideal situations in my life, but I am surrounded by love. And in the end, love is all that really matters, isn’t it? I have people in my life who love me fiercely and they let me know it every day. And I always make sure to tell them I love them, too.
I’ve learned a lot in the 30 years I’ve lived on this earth and I have much more to learn. But, the most important lessons I’ve learned have all been about love. Pour out love wherever you go. Give it to everyone you encounter. Yep even the people who you think don’t want it or deserve it. Always choose love. Believe in it. If you feel like you don’t have enough love in your life, create it. Give of your heart and your time freely.
When you start feeling down, think about the love (and loves) you have in your life. And when you sense that someone else in your life is down, remind them that you love them. You don’t even have to use words, just demonstrate it somehow — in any way you can.
The next time my day starts off sour, I’m going to try to remember more quickly that love is really all that matters at the end of the day. It might not change the situations that put me in a funky mood, but it sure will take the weight off my chest. It’ll work for you, too.
“One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life. That word is love.”
