Welcome to Day 11 of the IN AWE 21-Day Challenge! Today we spark inspiration, meaning and joy by CHOOSING LOVE.
“Because I always have a choice, I choose love.” – Deepak Chopra
CHALLENGE: Choose to show your love today; through each of your small actions, interactions and words.
INSPIRATION: ‘Wanting’ to do something is so much more liberating than ‘having’ to do it. My wife Beth reminded me of this through a simple action and her corresponding words. One morning when I was tired after a work trip, she surprised me by putting a cup of coffee on the bathroom sink.
Beth – who doesn’t drink coffee – made a pot, poured a cup, ran up the steps and placed it where I couldn’t miss it. I dressed quickly, danced down the steps, kissed my four little ones and thanked her for her thoughtfulness. I asked why she made me coffee and she responded, “Because I wanted to.” Ah. I felt so loved.
ACTION: What is one thing you will do today for your family, housemate or neighbor out of love? Inspire us all by posting in the comments below or on social media tagging me and using #inawe.
My friends, today is your day! Live IN AWE.
