I have been feeling the need to reach out to those I LovE more on the regular, not only to connect, but to make sure the ones I hold dear really know how much I LovE them. I can be a bit of an introvert and go into hiding, (kind of a knee jerk reaction after years of being on display). So, in the spirit of good old conscious effort and opening my heart, I have made a list of my family and friends, and try to text at least one, if not a couple of them a day, just to send LovE, remind them how incredibly special and bad ass they are or lend an ear if they need one…or both.
It’s so easy to get lost in our own world and disconnect, leaving us feeling lonely, isolated and sometimes with serious depression. A list of your loved ones, and a daily reach out, even to just one person could make all the difference, providing a sense of community and a knowing that YOU ARE LOVED. For me, it gets me out of my own head and fills me with joy, knowing that I made someone’s day just by saying “I LovE you” or “I miss you.”
So, are you ready to create your own “LovE You” list? If we haven’t established this yet, I’m a list freak (Virgo). A list helps me save brain power and makes everyone easily accessible, the ones I am super close with to the ones I adore, but don’t see often enough. I’m talking, go deep here! Include people you respect and greatly appreciate, but maybe haven’t spoken to in a while. RECONNECT! Join me in spreading LovE, daily. We can even extend outside of the circle of our LovEd ones and give random compliments on social media, or maybe even shock your coworkers and pay them some fantastic compliment. Everyone needs lifting up and connection more than we are willing to admit. Let’s be the LovErs who get the LovE rolling.
