Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but I don’t need a corporate holiday to shower my loved ones with love so we are keeping the celebration going all month long!
Living out love is about being present in the moment and the day-to-day. It’s kisses before bedtime and first thing in the morning. It’s my baby’s arms wrapped around my neck and holding him close a little longer. It’s folding the laundry so my guys have clean clothes but setting it aside to play one more game of hide and seek because he needs to know that he is worth it.
Whether you’re a hopeless romantic or a cynic, Love IS universal. We all need it, crave it and thrive most when saturating within it. There is no force in the world more powerful than love and it is only within the nurturing of love that we achieve the full destiny of who we were born to be.
Love Naturally embodies this mission in a way that is both inspiring and honest to my soul. Founder, Elbonie Metcalfe, was inspired by the life of her late brother, Elton Metcalfe, whose legacy propelled her to create a brand that called people into loving others for exactly who they are.
In her opinion, love is the foundation to existing.
And she believes that the impact genuine love can have on a person is irreplaceable because we were created for love and to love.
Genuine love can impact us in so many ways because of the actions we demonstrate. The actions of being patient, showing compassion, being kind, doing random acts of kindness, listening—instead of always offering a solution, or even speaking to a stranger on the street—allows a great impact for genuine love to be given and received.
To pay it forward…and spread a little love, Elbonie and I are teaming up to giveaway TWO Love Naturally t-shirts: one for you and one for a friend.
