on loving others

I read this excerpt earlier and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.

“There are so many eyes I'll look into today that don't know love. I will give some away with unconditional tolerance. It's a gift -- to myself and others.”

It’s hard to wrap my mind around this, being someone that has more love and support from her family and friends than I probably deserve, so naturally it made me really sad to think about the fact that others don’t have this.  Some people truly don’t know what it’s like to be loved, and well, that breaks my heart.

So I’m going to make a more conscious effort to be more kind to strangers, have patience when road rage wants to consume me, and take time to listen to others even when I don’t feel like it.  I’ve got love for years, so it only seems fair that I attempt to share it with someone that might not.

This might not be as easy as it seems in the midst of a bad day., so hold me to it ok?
