I want you to go out there and love people, tell them they are loved, look into their eyes and notice them. Have you tried handing something over with both hands yet? Just start at the checkout. Take the money out, put the wallet in your pocket, take hold of the note with both hands and give it to the 'person'. Look in her or his eyes as you do it. Then take your change, don't look at it or count it but look at them and say, "thank you". The results are amazing when people realise that you have noticed them. We love to be affirmed, we want to matter, we are all hungry for meaning and purpose. Once you have practiced start doing it at work when you hand something over or accept something, do it at home with your family; you'll love the results. Slow down and take time to notice the people who cross your path:
"Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it." Hebrews 13,2
Remember that love is an action and a commitment before it is a feeling.
Let me know how it goes.
