These are my silly prescription sunglasses that I’ve had since April. My intention when I ordered these was two fold; one to remind myself to see the world through the eyes of love and two, to hopefully bring a smile to anyone who is looks at me. A heart is a universal symbol of love. Through my heart shaped sunglasses I feel as if I’m sharing my intention of love and acceptance. Wearing my heart glasses is just one small way that I am choosing to spread the message of love.
During these turbulent times where the battle between love and hate is being played out in our world, and there is a feeling of helplessness and hopelessness I would like to remind you of Mahatma Ghandi’s words ‘be the change that you wish to see in the world’.
When you model kindness, consideration, and acceptance in your daily life it not only feels good, you are teaching by example. Another benefit is when you treat others with kindness and respect it will be reflected back to you, feeling lighter and less stressed as a result. How do you want to choose to see the world through the eyes of love? Sometimes it takes courage. It took courage to let go of what others may think of a 50 year old woman wearing heart shaped sunglasses and allow strangers to laugh at/with me. Thankfully the playful, loving side of me out weighed the part of me who was concerned about being looked at as foolish.
I encourage you to look for opportunities to be foolishly kind, considerate, and loving to a complete stranger. You can make a difference in someone’s life and you will instantly feel your heart grow when you do.
