Love Does

Don't Be Lame Fridays

We can't talk about our friend Will Gray enough. If you are sick of us talking about him--deal with it. When you have someone who is that dynamic of a thinker, who has that kind of a heart...you wouldn't stop talking about him and his ideas either :) So, this morning as I sit here and drink my coffee, he just sent me this text: "Just keep on rocking! Don't be lame."

He is referencing a story told here about not being lame.

So we are deeming this: Don't' Be Lame Friday (has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?)

We all have the tendency to be lame. To relax in our cubicle of comfort zones. I know I am. Guilty, party of one, your table is now available. We all do it. But if we think outside the box, maybe give more of ourselves and we could all benefit. We could do something awesome. We could do something that changes someones life. We could make someone smile. People need people. Reach out. Give something away. Hold someone's hand when they need it. Go on that crazy adventure you've been pinning about planning for years. If you always go left, turn right this Friday. It's DONT BE LAME FRIDAY. Go, do, be, LOVE. Who knows what could happen!!! Our friend Bob Goff calls this Love Does... :)

What are you going to do to not be lame on this Friday?

We are gonna give away some t-shirts. Why? Because we don't wanna be lame. And who doesn't love FREE stuff?

shirt

It also happens to be the softest t-shirt we have ever felt. It's SO SOFT YOU WON'T WANNA TAKE IT OFF.

So, leave a comment & we will randomly pick a winner from the comments section.

L to the Ove. (LOVE)

Happy Valentine's Day. And with that statement some of you hurt. You sunk into your chairs a little deeper. You rolled your eyes. Some of you even read "Happy Singleness Awareness day" instead.

We don't have any magic potions or words of life-changing significance. Sorry. We just wanted to say that we get it. We have both spent Valentine's Days in relationships, other Valentine's Days not in relationships. We both have had periods of that blissfully giddy can't-stop-thinking-about-him days and days when we think "Will there ever be a normal guy to ask me out?"

Whatever situation you find yourself in...married, single, engaged, just broken up with, monk, nun, old or young--whoever you are...show someone that you love them today. Show love. But here's the catch. Tomorrow and the next day too. And the day after that...you get the point. And notice we didn't say tell someone you love them. We said show. While hearing that you are loved is important and powerful....we have learned from our friend Bob Goff that LOVEDOES. Love does...it's an action word.

We are not saying to go buy a dozen roses to show someone you love them or to do something major...just a small action of love. Maybe it's picking up that piece of trash that's sitting out in front of your neighbor's lawn. No one might notice or even see but you will be doing it! Maybe it's babysitting for your friends who have kids who desperately could use a dinner alone. Maybe it's doing the dishes for your mom. Maybe it's eating lunch at school or work with the person who clearly has been isolated. There are a million things you could do. Let today be the launching pad for love.

Yes, we all want that romantic comedy love story to be ours. So yes, it's hard when you find yourself without that special someone on a day where you feel like it's constantly in your face. We get it. If you feel like you're alone, you're not. If you want to sit in your room all day throwing chocolates at the TV...by all means...we've all been there. But if you can muster the strength to propel love...do it.

You are worth it.
