Hello my friend,
Welcome to this week’s LoveGram.
I send you the sound of your best friend’s voice when he answers the phone at a time when you really needed him to be there. And there he is.
Today I send you that surge of joy when you pass a baby on the street and she gives you a big toothless grin.
I send you that moment when you share a little joke with the clerk at the post office and for a moment, everything feels aligned and right.
In today’s LoveGram, we talk about how to expand the definition of the word “LOVE,” so that it fills our lives in brand new ways.
We talk about those daily moments with strangers, many of which might go unnoticed, but which are filled with possibility.
(To listen to the audio, just click over to this page, scroll down, and hit “play” on the audio player.)
William Butler Yeats wrote, “There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”
What would the world feel like to us if we thought about that sentiment every time we left our house?
In my LoveGram, I share with you about some experiences I had when I was traveling in Europe recently and met some amazing ordinary/extraordinary people.
If you want to see some of the faces and hear some stories about the beautiful folks I met when I traveled through France, Spain, and Portugal, join me on Instagram. I’ve been sharing there and have dozens more to introduce to you!
That photo up above is Theresa, who cheerfully chose a bold red wine as my “Welcome Drink” at the Palacio Pinello hotel in Seville. Theresa was warm and friendly. She sent me on up to the hotel’s rooftop terrace so I could sip my way ‘til sunset — with a beautiful view! The photo of me is from that rooftop, feeling ever so happy!
And I hope you’ll email me and let me know what happens when you try out my suggestion at the end of the audio LoveGram!
I love you. I’m here with you.
Thank you for being on this journey of love, celebration, and appreciation with me.
I’m grateful for your presence in my life.
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
P.S. Here’s the music video for “Good Life,” the One Republic snippet of music you hear in my audio.
