Hello beautiful human,
Tomorrow (August 8th) is a day I call "I Stand For Love" day. It was created to strengthen and amplify the love in the world.
We started it in 2012 because obviously the world needed more love. Well, here we are in 2019 and not to be a total downer, but WE NEED LOVE NOW more than ever and it's up TO US to bring it forward.
The truth is I don't know the answer to all the healing that needs to happen in our world today, but I DO know that we haven't tapped into the power of our hearts yet to any substantial degree. So that gives me hope and also a place to act from!
The goal is to fill the airwaves with LOVE:
To interrupt the regularly scheduled program of division. To declare that a Loving World is what we stand for!
Together we can create a ripple effect in our families, neighborhoods, towns, and online spaces.
Be a part of the ripple on August 8th because, simply put, Your love changes the world.
It's easy to participate:
Take a photo of yourself (extra credit for wearing a heart and/or holding a sign that says #IStandForLove).
Post it on your favorite social media platform and declare your stand.
Tag @istandforlove and use the hashtag #IStandforlove to strengthen the web of world wide love!
Then… DO something loving!
Big or small. Express your love, kindness, compassion to yourself, your kids, a co-worker, a complete stranger. One act of love could change someone’s life. And 1000s of people taking loving action on the same day could change.... well, everything!
This is a way to not only feel less isolated and anxious, but also create a ripple of love for ALL! to simply yet powerfully use your unique perspective, skills and energy to put more love in the world.
If you're tired of the violence, heartbreak, us against them story we are told, let's create a NEW STORY and tell it loud. Get the kids involved in #IStandForLove Day too!
You and I both know that the time for LOVE is right now. And believe it or not WE ARE THE ONES WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR.
Thank you for being alive. Keep connecting to anything that strengthens your heart. I'm sending love your way now! See you tomorrow!
