Here it goes!

10 things I love about you.

I was sitting here this morning, thinking about things I love… about people, life, and just being. So I created a list of beautiful, incredibly important things that exist in this life but sometimes we can’t see (or forget exist).

I hope it gives you something to think about, smile about or be inspired about.

  1. Really kind People. Not the fake kind when people are watching kind, but the quiet kind. People who are kind without anyone knowing.
  2. When you hear a friend’s name come up in conversation, and it’s because someone is celebrating them – talking good about them… just because they are themselves. That’s pretty flipping cool.
  3. The way people’s eyes glisten when they laugh. Yes, even you. Something magical happens when we learn to laugh from our bellies. Laughing is one of my favourite things to do.
  4. Being brave, even when it scares you.
  5. Knowing that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. It’s just like this for now. It’s always a small dragon. Remember that.
  6. Friends who make you forget your phone.
  7. Holding onto hope, even when the world is full of despair. I use a quote in all my keynotes… “in times of tragedy, look for the helpers”. It was attributed to Fred Rogers from the 1970s but his mom actually said this to him 30 years before that when he would hear what was happening on the news and feel helpless and hopeless. Why does it matter in this context? Because it shows that the world has always been a scary place. But it’s also a reminder that help is always there (and it is, we write about these incredible people every single day). Friends, we cannot lose hope for a better tomorrow.
  8. People who remind you that good things still exist. I see this every day… I think that’s why I am such an optimistic guy. I know in my heart of hearts that the good far outweighs the bad.
  9. The potential for a beautiful today (and here’s a secret… every day has the potential to be the best damn day you have ever had).
  10. The endless capacity to love.

Yes, it’s actually all about love! Love is the answer.

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”.

No matter what commandments, sutras, religious or spiritual practices you follow… if you choose love you will win. In fact, we all will.

It’s that simple.

So love louder my friends… and never, ever lose hope.
