Love is essential to happy, healthy, cooperative, and successful human life.  It is the basis of positive human interaction and most major religious traditions.  Sometimes, however, we get caught up in contemplating who or what is worthy of our love, instead of simply giving it freely to others.

Today's reminder to make mindfulness happen in your life is a quote explaining one man's take on love. 

Maymont, Richmond, VA

“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.” Thomas Merton

Today, consider how you can give and show your love for those with whom you interact daily.  Perhaps an everyday gesture to show you care?  Make time to cultivate a positive and loving attitude, be mindful of what you say to and about others, and work to love others, starting today.

Happy Thursday!
