Week 6: List the Ways in Which You Can Love Others
This list is far from complete but these are some of the concrete ways I am trying to be more loving this year. I should probably hang copies of this list in strategic locations to remind myself of them...
- Be more patient
- Be encouraging - the world has enough critics already
- Try to see the positives, especially when I don't feel like it
- Leave lovely comments on my favorite blogs
- Be sincere when asking, "How are you?"
- Give gifts just because
- Send greeting cards just because
- Remember birthdays with snail mail birthday cards
- Send flowers to Mom
- Be a useful, patient employee to Dad
- Listen more, talk less
- Be gracious
- Dress to impress
- Speak kindly
- Give the benefit of the doubt
- Be generous
- Be hospitable
- Give my full attention
- Don't complain - be grateful
- Write thank you notes for little things
- Show up for work in a good mood and ready to get work done
- Take sisters on coffee dates
- Pray for people who piss me off
- Smile and say "Hi!"
These are the attitudes I'm trying to implement that make me remember to be love at all times. I'm far from perfect and being a positive person is something I really struggle with, so this is a good list for me to be focusing on.
What about you? How do you show people you care? What are some ways you can be a little more loving every day? Let me know in comments or with a list of your own!
Love, love, love
