Week 6 - List the Ways in which You can Love Others
Loving others. It sounds so easy, but this list required a lot of creative thinking. I know a lot of people who are linking up with this mostly go specific - which is great - but I wanted to think of more general, everyday ways to love others. There are some that are very specific, but a lot of them are just daily reminders that I need to be more conscious of. The list:
+ exercise patience - don't yell or be sarcastic + be encouraging + be optimistic and positive - even when I don't want to be + be sincere when asking "How are you?" + give gifts just because + let cars merge + pray for people who annoy/upset/are not loving to me + send my mom flowers + be a useful employee to Dad + focus more on listening and less on talking + be gracious + give people the benefit of the doubt +call people on their birthday + be giving/generous + give my full attention + don't complain - be grateful + write thank you notes for little things +get to work on time or early + take Oma out to lunch + be fun, understanding, and a good role model to my sisters + compliment freely and sincerely (and often!)

Wow, a lot of these are mostly about just being more positive. Admittedly, I do tend to be more on the doom and gloom side of things, and I do think I should complain less.
How are you going to be loving this week?
