I shot this picture on a Saturday afternoon, while I was biking and contemplating what to do with the rest of my day – the luxury! I drove down Karl Marx Allee and suddenly saw this heart surrounded by all this yellow gorgeousness.
At the same time, this song started to play and it just made me realize that love IS all around. The song I am talking about here is Love is all around from Wet Wet Wet. If you don’t know it, go have a listen – please your ears.
Love is a funny thing, but it’s everywhere. You just have to see it, be open to it. I am not only talking about having a partner, but also just about the kindness in people. Hold the door for somebody, help somebody out if they are carrying stuff and something falls down. Smile at 7 a.m., when you see someone on the street, say good morning to your neighbor. Give somebody a compliment.
Just because you can. I have noticed these last couple of weeks that since I have started doing this, it not only brightens up my day, but it also makes other people happy. Come to think of it, we are all so caught up in our own thoughts and lives, that we are actually surprised when somebody is smiling or saying hello.
How weird is that!
Most random act happened on the bike. A girl was driving in front of me and I really liked her jacket. I normally wouldn’t have done this, but since I was in a pretty happy mood – I drove past her, turned my head to the right and said the words: that is such a cool jacket – she smiled, totally surprised by the compliment and that smile on her face, made me happy too.
It’s so easy!
Try it, you will love it.
