Valentine’s Day – Go out and spread the love

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all mushy romance. While that’s certainly the traditional meaning in many cultures – it can just be a day to really celebrate Love. To connect with the special people in your life and really let them know how much they mean to you.

I’m a big believer in “as within, so without.” When we have peace, joy, love and harmony inside – that’s what we put out into the world at large. And it makes a difference. A BIG difference. You can make a difference to someone.

In fact, that’s one of the reasons I really love social media so much. We have a chance to connect with people all over world and let some folks know that they are not alone.

If you see someone today, give them the gift of your full attention – if even for a brief moment. A genuine smile and eye contact can make a person’s day — you’ll see them suddenly light up, because they’ve really been seen!

When you see someone in a store, restaurant, at the checkout, or you’re passing by a colleague today, really see the person and connect from the heart.

I truly hope this is a magical and special day for you and others around you that you impact!

Act 155 – Just a little time….

Tuesday, March 29, 2011, Act 155.

I’ve learned that you can do amazing things in only 60 seconds.

You can enlighten, inspire, or motivate someone. You can cheer them up or ease a burden. You can give them something they might need, and it just might be that single thing – a bit of information, an idea, help with something that before was overwhelming – that allows them to fulfill a dream and maybe turn their life around.

A minute is actually a substantial amount of time. (Sprint for just 60 seconds the next time you’re out for a run or bike ride, and you’ll see what I mean.) Set a timer, take a full minute and…………..

…find the phone numbers of three friends you haven’t spoken with in six months. And call them, rather than sending an email.

…go visit a relative that lives close by, but you never have the time to stop in.

…make a doctor’s appointment, if you haven’t had an annual checkup in more than a year.

It only takes 60 seconds to be kind – to others, to yourself, to everyone!
