What do closet space, computer hard disk space, money, and sex all have in common? Well, on any of those, if you ask someone how much is enough, the answer is often the same, “just a little bit more.” We should have the same attitude towards Good Love.
If you have followed my blog, you know I have Spain flowing in my blood. One of the things that tickled my fancy in Spain was that many times the speed limit signs had the number in a disc, with the word RECUERDE below (or above). That is REMEMBER, and is saying that you’ve been advised, been forewarned what the speed limit is, and this is just a reminder. Here is a photo of one of these signs, although I couldn’t find the one I took a couple years ago. This one has been vandalized to remove the number of the speed limit.
What’s even more interesting, or if not, what tickled my fancy even more, is that in France they do the same. Sometimes the speed limit sign has RAPEL below. That is also REMEMBER or RECALL. It is important for us to remember, to ponder, and to treasure in our heart. I talked about NODO (NO8DO) meaning “they have not left/abandoned me,” and certainly one application pertains to REMEMBER. If someone has indeed left us, has died, has moved on, has a new spouse or a new life, we have the memories of the Good and Better Love we shared with them. We can access those memories at will, and have them with us, such that in one respect they have not left us.
It’s easy to remember the good and great moments, the Good / Better / Best, and it’s usually easy to remember the Bad / Worse / Worst as well. What we need to promote, then remember, are the Bad / Worse / Worst Love moments that were turned around into Good / Better / Best Love moments.
If you can remember a moment when things seemed hopeless, it just didn’t seem worth it anymore, you couldn’t go on, you just wanted to go to sleep forever, but finally realized it is never hopeless, you can always make it better and find a way, there is always Good Love there for you, not to mention Best Love, REMEMBER that time. If you were trapped in a relationship that was abusive and felt unworthy of Good Love, that you were getting the measly love you deserved, but then found you are not only worthy of Good and Best Love, but they are there for you to take, take them, and REMEMBER you are worthy of Good / Better / Best Love.
Even at work, decide what you want to remember. Did you find yourself on someone’s sh** list? Do you want to remember trying to sink their boat, or do you want to remember trying to share Good Love with others, to fill their sails with encouragement? Some say Love is an emotion. Some say it starts as a thought and ends in action. But in reality, Love is a decision. Passion, Commitment, Emotion, Intimacy can all follow, but in reality it starts, and ends, with a decision. Decide. Don’t wait, don’t hesitate, share your heart and share some Good Love. And REMEMBER the Good Love you have been fortunate enough to have shared in the past.
