"Operating from a place of love enables us to be better leaders, spouses, parents, business associates, co-workers and world citizens"
Good morning Face2Face family! It's Sunday again. I hope your weekend is restful and fun.
I woke up this morning, my heart filled with the determination to spread love.
Good morning world. Let's remember to spread some love

Of what good is having money in the bank while lacking happiness in our lives?
I have realized that whenever we show love, react in love, we ourselves feel love. Love creates IN us peace, security and happiness, regardless of what is going on around us.
Operating in love and understanding separates the fulfilled from everybody else simply because loving is for the brave. It takes courage to not fight back, to not hate back, to forgive.
Those who operate in love have develpoed the nobility of character required to say 'no' to ego and 'yes' for a greater good.

Relegating our pride to the backburner means bringing that which is most important (progress) to the forefront. Whether it's a business goal to be met, peace in the family, or even community service projects, the leader focuses on that which fosters good healthy results. At the end of the day isn't it more important to achieve that which we initially set out to achieve than to 'win the battle and lose the war'? Hence, the person who operates in love is one who is determined to taste of the fruits of their hard work.
I firmly believe that the most productive people in the world have mastered the art of operating in love to project light. And LIGHT is all that is good, bright, and satisfactory spiritually.
When we spread light, we ourselves become brightened. The energy of light inspires life, encourages hope, heals pain, breeds confidence in us and those whose lives we touch.
Matthew 5:14 has always been one of my favorite bible verses:
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Are you that city through which the light of Christ shines unto the world?
Light is powerful, it cleanses the source (our hearts) and strengthens the vessel (our minds).
