My Love Letter to the World

My Love Letter to the World

I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.

~ Mother Teresa

I remember talking to a friend in high school where I berated myself for not being able to play an instrument or sing or dance well. "Oh Brenda, don't you see?" she so sweetly answered me. "You are a sunshine spreader! You are always inspiring people with your joy and positivity. That is the best gift you can give!" My friend's comment was very astute. I have an important job in the world.

My blog and articles I write are a love letter to the world. I like to think of people smiling quietly when they read them. I am hoping that if they read something that touches their soul, their heart may expand a bit; they may stand a little taller and see the world through different eyes. Maybe they read a sentence or two to their mom over the phone or make a copy to keep on their bulletin board. Maybe they think about one of the lines during the day that inspires them or brings them comfort.

My workshops, teleclasses, EFT Healing Circles and individual sessions are my love letters to the world also. They give me an opportunity to teach and inspire many people at the same time.

How I live in the world is my love letter too. I want everyone who comes in contact with me to feel better because they had an encounter with me.

My children are my love letter to the world. I told them when they began to take trips out of the country that they were ambassadors for our family, for Michigan and for the United States. Grown up now, I am proud that they show love and caring in their daily interactions with people in their lives. Like the line from the movie, Mr. Holland's Opus, "They are my symphony!"

Of course there are artists like my sister Cheryl and my sister-in-law Jo who bring joy into the world with a luscious interplay of color and light. There are gardeners like my father who create living oases of beauty and wonder. How about the decorators (or homemakers) who create spaces of beauty that make you feel all warm and cozy inside? Or the teachers like my husband Richard and my favorite high school social studies teacher, Mr. O'Hara who inspire you to reach higher and higher? There are musicians like Yitazk Perlman and singers like Barbara Streisand whose music and lyrics reach the depths of your soul.

Of this, I am certain that every kind and wonderful things we do is a love letter to the world. So, my friend, what is your love letter and how do you deliver it?

  1. Brenda,
    "Love letters to the world"!! I love that thought! And - to be a spreader of sunshine and joy! How awesome!! Brenda, that is most certainly love out into the world! And - yes...we all have that within us...if we'll just stop and listen to that voice that speaks from our heart...

    Much peace,

  2. Brenda,
    I sooo get your approach. I have always considered my writing my love letter to the world.

    I write from a place of center, of deep love and compassion for myself and others. So the words just flow. Writing, in that way then, is spiritual practice. As is the case when I mentor others. I get into a zone of feeling their desire to be heard and accepted - just as they are, and the love flows. I sense you are this way too. You give from your heart and with a deep desire to heal and be present to others.

    Blessings to you on your love work in the world!
    (Alias Buddha Chick - wink!)

  3. Lance: Thank you for your kind words! Yes, we do have to listen to that voice.

    Jan: I know you get it...I love your work too! Writing is a spiritual practice as is working with others. Thank you for echoing my thoughts.
