If you listened to Sunday’s Audio LoveGram, you heard that I was celebrating receiving the trademark for the phrase, Love List. (Wheee!)
For those of you who are new, a Love List is simply a list of specific reasons why we love someone. It shows that person the impact they’ve had on our lives and why they matter.
In that audio, I told you that creating Love Lists is a practice of learning how to focus on love and how to train our brains to look for the positive in people. Love Lists have helped me with anxiety and depression. They are meditative. And, they obviously make great gifts to give.
But there’s one other thing they can be: an uplifting and connecting activity to do with someone!
The idea is to sit down with a friend and create a back-n-forth Love List for a mutual friend. It gives the Love List added energy and gives you extra motivation to create this gift.
I know this, because my friend Tricia and I created a Love List together while we were on retreat in Lake Tahoe recently. Her boyfriend owned the place we stayed in and I wanted a special way to let him know how much that meant to us to stay there.
So, I invited Tricia to create the Love List with me.
Click here to listen to the two-minute audio Tricia and I created for you while we were making this Love List together.
You can hear how happy we sound. And how surprised we both were at the impact on us.
We were also giddy with joy at the thought of hiding the Love List for her boyfriend to find next time he visited his place in Tahoe. Haha. We put it with his hiking and ski gear in a locked cupboard. (See photo up above!)
I want you to try this yourself because this is not only a beautiful gift to give, it will deepen your connection to your friend. That’s what happened for me and Trish!
Will you give it a try?
Let me know!
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
P.S. Don’t leave without listening to this two-minute audio Tricia and I created while making the Love List together. Give it a listen. I think it will inspire you and make you smile!
