I spent my roaring twenties in NYC. One particularly sweaty summer, my girlfriends and I made a loud and proud declaration: “This is going to be the Summer of Love!” We meant that to be about making out with cute boys, but what it turned into was a delicious summer of fun and joy that went way beyond any romantic connotations. By the power of our intention, something greater within us opened to love, and we began to see and find it everywhere!
My challenge to you is to make this your own Summer of Love! Say yes to love every day. It’s easy, really. What’s harder is to stay closed and constricted – that takes much more work. Our hearts want to love; it’s our natural state! To stop the flow of love is akin to trying to stop a massive boulder from rolling down a mountain. Set that wild heart free, and let the love roll. When we say yes to love, love says yes to us.
Below you will find ways you may knowingly or unknowingly be closing to love, and then (my all-time favorite list!) ways to love every single day!
