LoveGram: Think Smaller05-02-2021
Hello, my beautiful friend.
Today, I send you the wonder and striking beauty of bursts of purple flowers along the morning walk.
I send you the feeling of energy in your body as your legs carry you across the blocks of your neighborhood and as your hand raises up to wave to the neighbor in the houndstooth cap with the joyful crooked grin.
I send you the orchestra of birds — sounds like dozens of different ones! — who greet you along the way.
I send you these words to carry in your pocket all week: ease, simplicity, smallness, effortless.
Today, my LoveGram is about how we can offer love and appreciation to someone in our life — and do it in a way that takes little time, but is filled with big big heart.
Yep, today we are talking about Minimal Viable Product (MVP).
Pause to think about simple ways others have shown you love + how it fueled you.
Get quiet and consider someone who may need a boost of love this week.
Trust your own inner wisdom.
Trust your goodness, creativity, and blooming joy.
Know that you can find ease in the ways you express love.
Thank you for listening, today.
Thank you for your kind heart, which I see and know!
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
💓 P.S. This week’s challenge is to think of at one person whom you want to send some love to for Mother’s Day. Hold that person in your mind and commit to finding the smallest, most easy way to tell them how you feel. I’ll send some ideas later this week. But also, your mind will start to work for you and ideas will likely drop in! Remember, we are going for small, small “songs” of love, like Lhasa De Sela.
💓 P.P.S. The book I mention in this LoveGram is “Effortless” by Greg McKeown.
