Choose LOVE.

Updated: Oct 15, 2019

As a therapist, I am an empath, a feeling person. I can walk into a room and "feel " the emotional atmosphere of that space almost immediately. It's a blessing... oftentimes a very overwhelming one. I think it makes me a more empathetic person, the person that the Target cashier can tell her whole life to while she's scanning my $100 worth of merchandise when I really only went in there to get bath soap and unicorn leggings for Bean. ( Bean is my daughter. She's 4 and perfect and loves unicorns. Her government name is Sydney, but I've called her Bean since she was just a bean in my belly. So, we'll just call her Bean.)

I can sense feelings of love and happiness, hate and discord. I rarely watch the news because there is almost always something there that makes me say, " How can people do/ say that to other human beings? How do they get to a place of such disregard and disrespect for humanity? When will this change? What will the world be like when Bean grows up?" And I don't know about y'all but I have had enough of these types of narratives. People are out here hurting and experiencing atrocities at the hands of other people. So everyday, I purpose in my mind and heart to change that. To infuse joy and hope into someone else's day. To redirect the trajectory of someone else's life.

And I think it's something we all can do. One day at a time. One smile at a time. One kind word at a time. Because the world could always use more love and compassion. And because kindness is free. Show someone some love today, sweet friends.

Love y'all,
