If you know me, you know I’m all about Love (see photo of the “Love Notes” I’ve been giving away for a few years).
I define Love as not just romantic Love, but Love as affinity, Love as connection, and truly — Love as the thing that makes the world go ‘round.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, I’d like to talk about Love as a philosophy and infusing it into places we may not think is appropriate. If we come from the perspective that Love is limited to romantic or familial Love, then it may not seem obvious that it can be part of our business or professional relationships as well.
But it can. Love can be found in appreciating someone, understanding another’s perspective, compassion for someone going through a hard time and honoring another’s upset with an apology, regardless of how uncomfortable it is.
Love can be anywhere we allow it to be, and it is there if we look for it. Yet rather than look for it to be present or not present, seeking to find it with “How” questions:
“How is Love showing up today?”
“How am I infusing every relationship with Love?”
“How can I spread more Love throughout my day?”
So here’s to Love, in all the myriad, beautiful expressions and manifestations of it.
What do you think? How is Love present in your life and business?
