“I don’t care how much the world hates, I will always choose love.” - Demario Davis, NFL linebacker.
Last month Davis and Washington cornerback Josh Norman joined a group of volunteers that flew to Texas and stayed up all night in a parking lot putting together backpacks of supplies for migrant families detained at the border.
“I’m telling you it felt better than anything else I’ve ever done: to help give someone else a fighting chance,” said Norman, “I’ve been provided such riches, and a great life, so why should I not help others? Every one of us can be a hero.”
Every one of us can become a hero of love. Every day.
Bernie Siegel world renowned physician and author of Love, Medicine and Miracles wrote, “I believe that we are here to contribute love to the planet, each in our own way.”
Contribute love to the world in your way, right where you are, using your unique skills and passions and convictions and you become a hero of love.
Here are a few heroes of love I’m grateful for today:
My client who overcame her fear of public speaking last month to deliver a compelling, heart-felt, heart-opening talk to potential donors for an educational program. Her deep love for children and public schools fueled her courage to be vulnerable in sharing her own struggles as a student. Her talk helped bring in double the contributions the organizers had been hoping to raise.
My friend Wolf, retired MD, who volunteers to co-create a dynamic middle school theater program, combining his love of theater and his love for supporting and encouraging young people.
Friends who are raising their very young grandchildren; at a time they thought they would be retiring and traveling, they are opening their home and hearts to another 20 +years of the joys and challenges of parenting.
Clients who are lovingly, courageously and firmly setting new clear boundaries, re-writing old stories and re-wiring their nervous systems so they can create more conscious, mutually respectful and authentically loving relationships.
