Love is one of those rare things in life that you can
buy never get or give too much of…three words that, used often, will win friends and influence people gain exponential power and potency over time.
With this thought in mind, the Challenge for Days Eight, Nine, Ten, Eleven, and Twelve is to say “I Love You”. Because
it’s late I want to focus on my family, I did a little too much fa-la-la-la-laing this weekend I need to get through my daily affirmations, and Gemini are known to be non-commital creative, I’m only writing one post upping the ante and asking you to say “I love you” this week in five different ways.
Monday – Obvious: husband, child, brother, grandma. This is the
“duh” special kind of love that we all take for granted should pay more attention to than we realize. It’s the love we trash when we’re in a bad mood assume will always be there, and is the most expensive painful when it’s taken away.
Tuesday – Unexpected: This category is often dominated by, but not limited to,
your mother-in-law someone you have a hard time communicating with. Today is a day to just tell her how you really feel about her cooking get over it and say what you’ve wanted to all along: “ he loves me more” “I love you.”
Wednesday – Overdue: This one acts just like it sounds. Stop
throwing away money at the track procrastinating and dipping into your kids’ 529s, making excuses. Pick up the phone, call someone you haven’t spoken with in a while and say “can I borrow some money?” “I love you.”
Thursday – Unrelated: someone you aren’t connected to
through years and years of extortion by blood.
Friday – Anonymous: someone you
tend to stalk don’t know. I have a simple vision of some duct tape, an x-acto knife, and Depends a piece of paper, a Sharpie, and a car windshield. All you have to do is say is “don’t move or you’ll lose a bicuspid” “somebody loves you,” then run for your life, start the weekend with a smile, you’ve just gotten away with murder completed five incredible acts of kindness.
