Stick with Love

love-inspirational-daily“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”¬†– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’m a day late, I know! But I ran across this quote yesterday, and was reminded that we have choices in how we see things. And how we choose to see things affects what we choose to do.

Sometimes things seem bleak or overwhelming or downright horrible, and it’s okay to let them seem that way for a while. Our automatic reactions may be very negative when something happens that didn’t fit in our plans.

But eventually, if we want to  move on in the direction of our dreams, we must choose love. We must choose optimism. We must choose to try again rather than admit defeat. We must choose to see that others are fighting their own inner battles, which we know nothing about, and we must choose to be kind.

Let’s try in small or big ways to choose the higher road today.

And also those of us in the chilly Midwest can imagine hanging out on that beach!
