What Is Love To You?
I hope you're well and enjoying the Summer with your friends and family.
In April 2017, I did a book reading in London, UK on the topic of love. Before sitting down to start writing this blog post, I was reminded of the response that a little boy in my audience gave when I asked the question - What Is Love? He stumbled a little, he ummed and ahhhed, he made the whole audience laugh and then when all of the adults were responding, he said "I know one!" With his little voice he said "Love Is FANTASTIC!" The adults said God is love, Love is patient and love is kind... but from the mouth of a 7 year old I thought love is FANTASTIC was the best response. God is FANTASTIC, loving yourself feels FANTASTIC, loving others is FANTASTIC and that means love is FANTASTIC. He was right.
At my very first book signing for my first book, Ounce Of Faith And Inspiration, also in London, UK on February 24th 2017, a mum approached me and asked me what age group my book was for. I responded by saying "It's for EVERYONE!" Some people would shut me down and say the book can't be for everyone, but let me tell you this. I continued to answer her question by saying "There isn't an age group (because I didn't set an age group) my nephew is 10 years old and he's reading it, it promotes faith, healthy living, it inspires you to be a successful person, to be confident, to love yourself and we all need that no matter how old we are." Now isn't that the truth.
The oldest person I know of that's reading my book is 90 years old. She's an amazing woman of God and she keeps telling me how inspirational my book is. She's ordered copies for her mentee whose a newly baptised young lady, for her daughter in the USA and grand daughter in Jamaica. That's different generations and stages in life. The 7 year old boy listened to me as I read the teaspoons/ extracts on love and he took it in very well. There's no age restriction when it comes to matters of love, faith and inspiration.
I would love you to comment on this post with your definition of love, or stop by to say hi and let me know what your response is on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
