Does love conquer all?

Love is powerful.

We live in a world where more and more people are starting to choose fear. They try to spew it on others. They say the world is burning. They turn to hate. They turn against others. They shut themselves off from the world. From community. From people. They let fear win.

I refuse to accept this.

I refuse to let fear bring me into its dark room. I refuse to let fear drag me down. I refuse to let fear win.

I choose love.

Love conquers fear every single time.

Love lets us see another day.

Love is full of life.

“Now fear is going to be a player in life, but you get to decide how much. You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts, worrying about the pathway to the future, but all it will ever be is what’s happening here, the decisions in that we make in this moment, which are based in either love or fear.
So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it.
You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world, and as you walk through those doors today, you will only have two choices: love or fear. Choose love, and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.”
-Jim Carrey

Fear is always going to be in this life, but you get a choice.

You can let fear win, or you can choose love.

Your heart is powerful. You need it in order to follow your dreams. You need it in order to follow your passion. You need it in order to reach the endless possibilities of tomorrow.

Choose love.

Show love. To everyone.

Use empathy in life.

Form connections. Strengthen relationships. Serve strangers, and expect nothing in return. Show love through life, every single day.

If everyone started to choose love, if everyone started to use more empathy in life, it would make the world even brighter. We would show fear, that love is winning.

We would silence fear.

Love would conquer.
