Be Love Challenge

Ok, so I didn’t quite think through my Be Love challenge. Big problem. My sign was too big to hug people. Yeah, that is not going to work. I loved the size of it, but wood is slightly (ok completely) inflexible and could give splinters and scratches. Not really what I was going for. Oops.

Anyway, the one day I wore it was AMAZING! I can’t wait to make a new sign. Walking through Lowes hardware store I got a ton of smiles. Not only that but I had a few people stop me just to say how much they loved my sign or loved my message. (insert silly, happy giggle here)

Next I had to stop at a body shop to get an estimate on a repair for my truck. The technician assisting me walked me outside then stopped, turned to me and said, “Why Be Love?” I said it was because I wanted to spread a message of love. Him, “But why?” Hmph. Wasn’t expecting that. You weren’t supposed to question it, just FEEL it. Me, “Because I have a blog that I like to promote love and kindness on, I even did a Year of Hugs.” Him, “oh, I was just curious.” Um, ok. I left not knowing what to really think of the whole exchange.

So, I went back about a week later for my repair. He walks in, kind of looks at me sideways and says, “Where’s the sign?” I started to smile and he added, “You thought I would forget..” I just let him know it was too big and I had to work on making it more user friendly. To which I didn’t really get a response, we just moved on to the truck repair. Looks like it did make an impact. What kind of impact, I am still not sure, but hey, he remembered.

Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
