Love Without Boundaries

I used to think of love as something that was measurable, something that should be rationed out instead of given freely. I grew up believing wholeheartedly in the Golden Rule, but I didn’t think much about going beyond simple kindness and respect. Compassion was a word that was uncomfortable to me because selling all of my possessions and living in the jungle just did not seem appealing to me.

But as I grow in loving myself and find confidence through friendship, I am learning that love is not a limited resource. It knows no bounds and cannot be whittled down to one narrow definition or interpretation. Love can be shown in the “smallest” of gestures, like a smile or holding the door for someone walking behind you. It feels so good to give it and receive it and funnily enough, the more you give, the more you get.

Love, more than anything, is an attitude and and a decision, quite like happiness. Because of it’s expansive nature, we have the ability to bring a spirit of love to everything we do and it doesn’t have to be reserved just for our family members, spouses, or friends.

How will you show love today?
