Lol! What do I think of love? Well I love to think act change, so I think if you have love or you’re walking in love, then you would Think love, Act love and let love Change you. That’s what I would talk about in this piece. Just #TAC love.
Thinking love first would be to state my perception of love. Or better yet, what is my love perspective?
I see and think love to be a decision. What I have a choice about. Now I understand this is a major step to handle, but looking at the fact that the LOVE almighty had a choice in His love decision towards Israel and myself, yet He went ahead to love; to send His Son to die for us. Love need not be the mushy feelings, those are key starters to the Love Triangle, but what sustains these feelings is a decision in itself.
So think love, decide to go ahead and love the ‘unlovable’; if there is anyone or anything like that. Decide that those undeserving of your love would get it and you importantly think of what the world would be without love.
Pure thoughts in themselves don’t move mountains, Actions do. Now that you can make a decision, what action do you take? What actions should you take? When propelled to move by love, don’t fight it. Go for it. It may be about you buying a meal for a stranger, a rose for your wife, or sending your son to die for someone. Either ways, it all starts with a decision that leads to an action. ACT LOVE.
A possible reason people break up is ‘cause they decided (based upon the circumstances) to do so. They could have also decided for a fighting chance; let love lead you to act in a sweet manner. It is noteworthy that people may think you to be soft or insane or whatever word they would want to use, but this is the change that love brings.
I know people are working to give up/sacrifice something for the one they love. After-all a father gives up his meal for his children to eat first. This is a simple part of change that love elicits in you. Now imagine that same father loves food, doesn’t joke with his meal or is grouchy when hungry. If you had asked him possibly five years before he got married he would have laughed the idea of ever giving up his meal to scorn. Yet here he is sticking his neck out for his children.
I think love is what we all need to make the world a better place. Love for one another and better yet, love for a total stranger. Love that makes you do random acts of kindness. Love that makes you give of your smile, of your love, and put of your resources to those you decide to love. Love in itself is a decision, so from henceforth, Think Love, Act Love and let it Change you.
