HOME>> HABIT #9 Practice happiness...by loving others
What is life without love? The source of true happiness and fulfillment can always be traced back to love in one way or another. More than anything else, love is sought after in our lives—within our relationships, occupations; within ourselves. Love gives life meaning and purpose. It fulfills the deepest yearnings of the soul. It quenches our thirst and fills our hearts to overflowing. Love turns darkness to light. Love brings harmony and order out of chaos. Love heals wounds and brings comfort to hurts and pain. Love holds families together. It bonds friendships. Love inspires, revives, and restores.
It is amazing what the power and beauty of love can do. It is fathomless. In this part of The 9 Habits of Happy People Workshop, Practice Happiness by Loving Others, we are going to look at the various ways love is known. Because love is indefinable and beyond our total comprehension, we can only begin to understand it and recognize it by its attributes and the actions it prompts.
Can you imagine what life would be like if you were to communicate love sincerely and consistently in all your relationships on a daily basis? That is, communicate the kind of love that esteems others and is patient, kind, considerate; love that is not jealous or envious; love that is humble, not demanding or easily angered; love that is forgiving and sincere.
Effectively communicating love can completely change your life. Not only will your relationships improve, but you will grow to be more joyful and fulfilled with a greater love for life and others.
Love is what we live for. As we become more effective communicators of love, we will experience more love in our lives. Kindness and consideration will replace criticism and selfishness. Humility and acceptance will replace judgment and rejection. Respect and patience will replace disregard and anger. Giving will outweigh taking. Loving will grow more and more fulfilling and enjoyable.
In 10 Keys to Happy & Loving Relationships there are specific sections devoted to each of the top ten attributes of love that communicate genuine love most clearly and completely. At the end of each section you will be encouraged to reflect on your personal experience of how you communicate love through each of its main attributes. You will be provided with questions for reflection as well as empowering thoughts and affirmations that you can apply to your life. You may discover areas that are strengths for you and others in which you want to grow. You will also discover how genuine love can change you, your relationships, and your life forever.
Joy is the experience of knowing that you are unconditionally loved and that nothing—sickness, failure, emotional distress, oppression, war or even death—can take that love away. ~Henri Nouwen
