I believe we underestimate the power our words have. Perhaps some of the most powerful words are three very small, but meaningful ones — “I love you.” Maybe we say it a lot. Or maybe we don’t say it very often. But those three little words have more significance than we know. As a child, I never heard the phrase “I love you.” Now, I hear people say it all the time — at the end of phone calls and whenever parting ways.
By allowing myself to be vulnerable, being open to give AND receive love, “I love you” became part of my everyday vocabulary. Every morning, I start my day with a promise to use those words as often as possible; I encourage you to do the same. Tell the people you care about how much you love them. Tell your enemies and the ones you don’t particularly care for that you love them. Life is precious, don’t waste any more time holding on to resentment; always find a way to love.
