When we genuinely love, we notice others. We are acutely aware of those who are physically around us throughout the day. We are aware of the mannerisms and facial expressions of others. We notice signs of pain, sorrow, happiness, joy, fear, and a host of other emotional cues about life, love, and relationships. We notice the obvious signs of need in the lives of others. Simply speaking: we are not so self-focused that we are oblivious to the glaring needs of others in our midst.

As important, when we genuinely love we are mindful of how our words and actions impact those around us.

Are we perfect (as in not making any mistakes in words, actions, or judgment)? No! But we are MINDFUL.

Mindful in this context simply refers to an awareness of others that is AS STRONG as our self-awareness.

❤️ In this vein, we make choices to NOT be so busy that we ignore the bleeding heart and the crying eyes that are three feet away from the path we are walking.

❤️ We make choices to be kind and respectful of other motorists, regardless of whether we agree with their “vehicular management” behavior.

❤️ We make choices to lend a helping hand and offer an encouraging word even when we need to get home to pick up the children and the dog for the important evening events.

❤️ Therefore, being selflessly mindful includes simply making mindful awareness choices beyond our self-awareness.

Some of the most profound moments of feeling loved have happened when others have included me in the simple things they are planning and doing. This has been especially true in the last 2 years, as my life has completely transitioned to “new everythings!” You never, ever know what someone is going through – no matter what the outside appearances look like! Be mindful of this truth.

Who can you include in your life plans this week? It really matters in matters of the heart. Your ‘invite’ to others makes a difference, hugely! Sometimes, simply asking someone, “hey, come and help me” or “come ride with me” is the best heart squeeze you could ever give to them.

Being mindful of others is truly a gift – one that impacts the heart and mind in ways that often cannot be measured.


In the midst of a world where so many are disengaged, cynical and apathetic, isn’t it time for some fresh air? Isn't it time to join together in building a refreshing, new community founded upon “real” relationships, “real” thought leadership, and “authentic” engagement? NO Clutter. NO Spam. NO NO Fees. NO Promotions. NO Kidding. SIMPLY Pure Engagement Unplugged. ☕️ CLICK TO GRAB YOUR SEAT IN OUR NEW ENGAGE CAFÉ ☕️
