Love is a verb

“My wife and I just don’t have the same feelings for each other we used to have.

I guess I just don’t love her anymore and she doesn’t love me.

What can i do?”
“The feeling isn’t there anymore?” I asked.
“That’s right,” he reaffirmed. “And we have three children we’re really concerned about. What do you suggest?”
“love her,” I replied.
“I told you, the feeling just isn’t there anymore.”
“Love her.”
“You don’t understand. the feeling of love just isn’t there.”
“Then love her. If the feeling isn’t there, that’s a good reason to love her.”
“But how do you love when you don’t love?” 

“My friend , love is a verb. Love – the feeling – is a fruit of love, the verb.

So love her.

Serve her.

Sacrifice.

Listen to her.

Empathize.

Appreciate.

Affirm her.

Are you willing to do that?”

This is to have succeeded

“To laugh often and much;

to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;

to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; t

o know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.”

The greatest challenge in life is 

discovering who you are…

The second greatest is

being happy with what you find…

Your greatest and grandest responsibility

“Caring for your body, mind, and spirit is your greatest and grandest responsibility.

It’s about listening to the needs of your soul and then honoring them.”

Our Disposition

“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself.

For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition”.
