Life of Love

posted in: Inspiration 0

If everyone were living their lives in love, no one would be living in lack because a life of love is a life of sharing, caring, taking care of others, and leading a life heart first. A life of love is one that is full of service to others, genuine service, not one for show or for the press, but the real-life of love. It is one who treats everyone as someone worth loving, as if no one is a stranger. It is a person who you can feel the love and joy in their presence before they ever speak. It is a person that everyone is drawn to because they lift everyone up that they meet.

This person serves the world in their own overflow; they never have an empty cup because they know that love is a flow; it is a never-ending fountain. The more love we give to others, the more we have to give. Love is something that never goes missing because it never runs out.

Do you know a person like this? Are you one? If not, why not?

A life of love, who is the person in your life that comes to mind when you think of someone who leads a life of love. What does that look like to you? What qualities do that have that sets them apart from everyone else? Is it a kindness, a smile, a graciousness, continual forgiveness, a caringness that is deeper than most? You feel safe around them like you can be your true self, and they will not judge or laugh at you ever. They are not self-seeking, conniving, or manipulating you at any time; they truly have your best interest at heart.

What kind of life do they lead? Are they feeding the hungry, healing the broken, volunteering to love on rescue animals or ocean clean-ups to save dolphins from the toxic plastic island, helping out orphans, and digging wells in third world countries?

Why do you think they do these things? Is it for self-gain, or is it simply because they are a good person and it is the right thing to do?

What does a life of love look like for you? What could you do more of in your life or less of to be considered a person who lives a life of love by others around you? Would there be more acts of service in your life? Would you be kinder to people? Would you stop littering, stop taking things for granted, stop being grouchy to your coworkers? Would you start smiling more, pay for the person behind you’s Coffee, start living in gratitude?

Who says you’re not an example of a life of love to someone around you already, and you don’t even know it? I bet you are; it could be someone you pass by every day with a smile, it could be someone who watches you feed a stray dog every day, it could be a person who watched you pick up someone else’s trash that they missed the can with. What if you already are the best person in someone’s life? I guarantee you already are. Now, what are you going to do about it?

How can you become an example of love to EVERYONE in your life? I know a few things that really stick out to people that you can try.

  1. Start learning people’s names and using their names to address them with a handshake, knuckle bump, or high five and, of course, a smile.

  2. Start learning one thing in each interaction about someone else’s life. People are far more open with others when they know they care. Don’t say, “Hey, how are ya?” And walk away, not caring about the answer. Start asking people how their wife, kids, dog, job, or whatever you talked about last time are going.

  3. Eye contact. This one I used to struggle with big time. And it’s still a work in progress, mostly because I’m usually multitasking, but I’m really trying my hardest to be engaged when someone is talking to me. The best way to show someone you actually care about what they’re saying is to listen with your whole body, eye contact included.

Listening to hear them, not to answer or advise them, or trump them or one-up them with a story about how your experience was better or worse or bigger than theirs, but listening for real. Caring about them and what they are saying.

You can learn a lot about a person if you just listen to them, ask questions, let it be their turn to talk, and fully get out whatever they are trying to say. Listen to more than their words, listen to their bodies, and listen to what they are saying without saying it. Give them a safe place just to be who they are. That is so rare these days. Be that space for everyone.

A life of love is NOT judging, snarking, snickering, ignoring, cold-shouldering,

Do you know what love is? It is you, and it is I. It is not something missing or something to be found. It is not what we need to be happy because we already have it; happiness is a result of it. God is love, and we are made in His image, therefore…

We. Are. Love. 

Love is patient; love is kind. It does not envy; it does not boast; it is not proud; it is not rude. It does not dishonor others; it is not self-seeking; it is not easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails. 
So… If WE are Love then…
WE are patient; WE are kind. WE do not envy; WE do not boast; WE are not proud; WE are not rude. WE do not dishonor others; WE are not self-seeking; WE are not easily angered; WE keep no record of wrongs.  WE do not delight in evil but rejoice with the truth. WE always protect, always trust, always hope, always persevere.  WE never fail. (Not ourselves or anyone else)
Practice this affirmation today. Write it down on your mirror or on a post-it note by your computer at work and remind yourself how you can be love in all the situations of your life, how you can be love for yourself and for all those around you. Imagine the world if we all lived and lead a life of love. No one would be without anything they ever needed! People leading lives of love are caring for and taking care of everyone they meet in some way or another!
I AM patient; I AM kind. I do not envy; I do not boast, I AM not proud; I AM not rude. I do not dishonor others; I AM not self-seeking, I AM not easily angered, I keep no record of wrongs.  I do not delight in evil but rejoice with the truth. I always protect, always trust, always hope, always persevere. I never fail. (Not myself or anyone else).

Hello beautiful souls. I'm Angielee, creator of BetterMeTribe. I'm a heart-first adventuring healer of souls. My calling is to heal the soul of the world by healing and filling one heart's cup at a time. I will teach you how to heal, fill, and overflow your own love's cup into the world, starting with the love cup inside of you. Healing and filling every area of your life so that you can overflow love into, onto, and all over others. A better world begins inside of each of us. And that is where BetterMeTribe Begins. I have had the privilege of unlocking and unblocking hearts, healing, and filling souls with the overflow method on stages big and small, in over 13 different countries on three different continents and 58 worldwide humanitarian aid mission trips. I have written eight books, three children's books that are launching soon, and this inspirational blog with over 900 heart healing posts with 50k Tribe members. I have been coaching teens and adults, one-on-one, families, groups, hosting, and speaking at events for over 20 years. But my life wasn't always like this. Through terrible traumas and a childhood that would make Stephen King have nightmares, I had to go through massive amounts of healing, forgiveness, and transformation myself. Overcoming those wounds has helped me to be able to be the best resource possible for helping others heal and use my own experiences and the experiences of many others to help as many as possible. There isn't much that someone can share with me that I have not been through, or helped someone else through. Being a natural problem solver and a deep empath, I find and pull out your strengths to become your best self. I teach you how to flow and grow through things so that you can become the beautiful being of overflow that you too were meant to be. Rising from the ashes and turning your life of pain into a life of beauty. I show people how to be love in all situations, to themselves, to others, and ultimately to the world, how to love the unlovely, even, and especially when that unlovely is us. I teach fun tools and tricks to help fill life's cup so that you are able to help others in a much bigger way than you ever thought imaginable. We can't help the sick, broken, or poor by being one of them. It is time to stop trying to serve from an empty cup running on empty fumes and overflow your own magical goodness into the world in a way that only you can. The world needs you. You need you. I need you. You are worthy of so much more than you even know, and I am here to help bring out that best self in you: transforming your life, healing one hole in your heart's cup at a time. Whatever your goal or obstacle is, I will help you flow like water through it, over it, or around it to help your soul become the majestic ocean, it is meant to be. Open your heart and allow me to pour into you, to teach you methods to keep your cup full so that you can start pouring better things into others. This is what Overflowing is all about. Allow me to overflow my love into you. Start with the search bar, search for the thing you need the most, and read those posts. Take the actions inside of them and apply them to your life. If you would like someone on one time with me, to talk deep heart to heart stuff, shoot me an email at angie@bettermetribe.com, and let's have a talk. I'm here for you. Your heart matters to me and I am here to heal it.
