Have you ever had a song trapped in your mind, and you can’t help but sing it out loud? Walking through the airport yesterday, I found myself softly singing the lyrics to Dionne Warwick’s version of “What The World Needs Now is love sweet love, Its the only thing that there’s just too little of..”
What a reminder of how powerful a simple song can be. It can transport us back in time to relive memories or like for me yesterday; it can put you in a state of being.
The airport was bursting with it’s the normal stampede of people rushing around. So with the lyrics in my head, I took a moment to embrace the feeling. I smiled a little brighter, made eye contact instead of looking down on my phone, used the agent’s names when I said thank you, and simply enjoyed the moment of being the best version of me. And guess what? People smiled back, even the tone in the agent’s voices softened as they looked up to connect, and my heart felt full.
What a difference a feeling can make. The difference multiplies when we can share kindness and love with others! So yes if what the world needs now is love, why not let it start with you?
