Cover the world in love. Loveprints

 

I was asked recently what I wanted my legacy to be when I was gone. I did not have an answer. Not at first. I then came to smile at my first thought. I have it. My family. In the simplest form, I wanted for people to look at them and see the best of me in them. And then see my family, loved in whatever way they need to be loved, at whatever level and depth they wish and choose. My friends, who love unconditionally and consistently, making my life rounded and padded by the real kind of love. And my squads. Picture images of me in how they dream and love.

Relax people. I am not ill and passing. I plan to be around to love out loud for a long time. This is just where I am right now. A loving place.

I heard some people talking about carbon footprints. I paused. Carbon footprints. Your effect on the earth during your time here and its resulting effect on it after you are gone. But carbon footprint does not work for me. So I came up with another phrase. One that said more about how I want to be remembered, and say it in a way that says what I want to be remembered. Not only after I am gone. But while I am here. While you are here. While we are here.

Your Loveprint.

I thought about carbon love print, but that did not seem right. Love print makes sense. I can see hearts. I can see hand prints. I can see hands with hearts in them. I can see hands with hearts in them.

A love print is affecting lives, moments, communities, and the world by touching them with your love. By BETTERING them with your love. YOUR. LOVE.

We know that love begets love. Love comforts. Love chases out hate. Love lifts. Love elevates. Love completes, and Love wins.

So. What I hope is that you will read this and go with love. Go and spread your love print. Spread it so wide that it covers anyone and everyone that you care about. And anyone and everyone that they care about. May you walk around every day and see your love print everywhere. Let it be seen on the faces of those you care most about, and may it be felt in the hearts of loved ones and strangers. May it cover the walls of your home, be seen in your mirror, and be driven around with you like a badge.

So there. That is my blessing to you today. Be aware of your Love print. Think of it often. Share it so much that you don’t even think about it. And then look around and see your life covered in it. That would be a blessing. And that would be better than the other.

LovePrints. It is time to cover your world in love!

LovePrints.

The effects of who we are in love and action on this planet. LovePrints are a trail of where we have been, who we touched and how, and how we left them. LovePrints are the life marks that we leave on those we interact with, and hopefully, they are prints made and left with love. If done well, we leave a planet of people covered in our love.

As we take our individual and collective trips around the sun, it becomes clear that we all have a limited, unknown number of trips around the sun. We have to pack as much love in those trips as possible. We don’t always know when our trips are to stop, so we play this odd game of hope and wish. We hope we have more than we ever do. We hope that we speak all of the love that we have. We hope that we empty our love in those trips. We hope that no love is left unknown or unshared. We hope. We wish that everyone we love knows, we wish that no love goes unspoken, and we wish to be love, and loved.

We do not know how much time we have, but here is a bit of wisdom from ole Coach DP. “We all have an unlimited amount of love. We all have limited time on this planet. There is no reason to limit sharing the love you have. You will always run out of time, first. “

As our trips around the sun increase, the number left is lowered. As the number increases, so do the number of people and situations we are introduced to that we can share love. As the number of trips remaining decreases, so do the number of people and opportunities we lose. We must remember to spend our love account. We can’t take it with us. We need to leave it behind for others. We should try and spend it all. We can’t, but we should try.

Don’t dare waste another trip around the sun to begin sharing your LovePrints. Don’t you dare wait. Don’t waste another day, or another moment. Start covering those you care about in them. Start seeking out others who need it. Make it rain! Start with yourself. Do not devalue yourself. Don’t let anyone else love you less than you deserve. Don’t let a day pass without humbling yourself in love of something greater. Cover your faith in LovePrints. Cover your home and house in LovePrints. Make it a tribute to a life of love. Let your heart be full. Let your feet move you with a loving purpose. May your hands be acting in adding love wherever you go.

In the past few days, I have been stunned by the loss of loved ones. In the past few days, I have been blessed and favored with new people to love and be loved by. I wish that I had told the lost one how special and loved they were, again. I hope to tell the new loves how thankful I am for their place in my world. I wish and hope that I have loved whoever reads or shares this. I hope you know that you are loved.

If you haven’t been told that you are loved today, you just were.

That’s my LovePrint for the day. I hope that you are covered in love just a bit more than you were before you read this.

I hope that it wont be the last time. My wish is that we get a chance to do this again tomorrow.

Go. Cover your world in love. Love it out loud!
