NO FEAR FRIDAY: Love + Empathy

choosing love

Love, not fear.


When we think about forage or foraging, perhaps we imagine scouting for food in a forest. Looking in all the nooks and crannies for something we can feed ourselves and our family — something that can sustain us. 🎈

Well, I believe the same thing about love and empathy. While it’s true love lives within us, we also need to see it manifest in our life. 🎈

Maybe we can see it on daily hike, or our drive to work, perhaps in the kindness of someone else holding open a door for a stranger. Maybe we can see it at a museum, in a hospital, or in the playful movements of our pets. It’s always there.
So that’s what today’s No Fear Friday is about. Looking for love and empathy. Trying to see it, even amidst the trauma and escalation of a sometimes suffering world.
