This is my year of love bombing, as you know if you follow me. Wouldn’t it be a great world if everyone did this? And it doesn’t have to cost a cent. It can be 100% free. Here are some wonderful love bombs:
Give a compliment to someone every day.
Compliment someone’s smile. Tell them what a bright light they are (if they are). Tell them how much you love being in their company. How much you appreciate what they bring to their work, to the world, to their friends–how much you appreciate THEM.
Hold the door for someone every time you can.
Simple thing. A kindness, really.
Let cars stuck in traffic go ahead of you.
Drop by to see someone who is sick or grieving. Call, first, though.
Send a real card to someone who needs a lift. Dollar store cards are 50 cents but if you have some in your card file, it’s almost free. Well, postage. But you get the drift. Yes, you can send an email but it is so beautiful to get a handwritten note on a card.
If you see a mom struggling with a cranky kid, ask if you can help.
Let someone with fewer items than you go ahead of you in the grocery line.
Offer to walk someone’s dog a few times if they need help.
Call someone you haven’t talked to in a long time just to say hello.
Cook a meal for someone who is sick or grieving. Or a harried mom.
Pick some flowers from your garden and give them to someone for no reason at all. Just because.
Invite someone for tea or coffee at your home for no reason or because they might need to talk.
Walk a shelter dog if your local shelter or rescue has a program.
If you’ve been really busy, love up on your dog or cat for no reason at all–just because they love love.
It’s time we all looked up from our phones and became aware of what’s going on around us. Opportunities to love bomb are everywhere. If you love-bomb every day, you’ll be happier and you’ll make a better world. Imagine if everyone did this?
