Today is a great day. The idea of focusing on love is powerful. For the world to take a day and express love to the people that mean the most to them, I’m all for it. But, is that really what it’s become, or is it a day full of surface demonstrations where many of the biggest “lovers” are really just putting on a good show? Like are you really nice at home or is it just for the gram?
I don’t mean to sound cynical but isn’t it fake if you’re a terror to your “loved one” most of the time and then when it’s convenient for you, then you act like you have some sense? We really need to stop the madness. Otherwise, we should send some of these actors to Hollywood. They certainly could use some new faces on the big screen. My husband and I are often guilty of being too transparent when it comes to our relationship. But truthfully, people don’t know everything about our love story. It’s not their business. What they know is what we are willing to speak on. At the same time, we are not painting a picture of perfection by any means. We don’t always see eye to eye. We don’t always handle each other in a way that makes us proud, but we don’t treat one another bad. That’s a no no in our house. Our love story has had its fair share of hard times where we have learned how to treat one another better everyday. That’s our number one goal!!!! There’s no way on earth that we will ever walk around and smile and grin up in stranger’s faces and then come home and act all rude and disrespectful to each other. That’s not cool at all.
My advice for my real life coachable friends today and the rest of your days is – BE GOOD TO THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE MADE THE CRAZY AND COURAGEOUS DECISION TO TAKE FLIGHT WITH YOU. You’re not perfect, so stop expecting that from someone else. Get your life together and stop being a jerk. It actually says a lot about your character when you mistreat the people who have committed their lives to being in relationship with you. Don’t be sadistic or callous with the people you say you love. As a mom, one of my life prayers is that whoever travels on this journey called life with my children; that they would treat them with kindness. One day you may have kids too. Hopefully, your kids find people that will treat them well too.
Be careful how you use this loaded word called love. The Bible says In 1 Corinthians 13- I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even of angels, but if I have no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell.
Please make sure your lack of love doesn’t cancel out all your cards and poems, fancy words and deeds this Valentine’s Day or any other day! Be real!
