…say, I Love You

…just tell someone that today.

we’re so used to not hearing it the other person will probably think you are:

1. interested in them/attracted to them
2. gay if you are saying it to someone of the same sex

when someone tells me “I Love You” i feel:

regal, special, important, valued

my friend Bilal just returned from the Ivory Coast and he said he witnessed African men holding hands as they walked down the road or when they stood speaking to one another.  no… no homosexuality.  he also told me that he had great anxiety about his first day of school for an African class.  he shared that the man that walked him to the school was standing next to him and grabbed his hand.  Bilal said there was a sudden high level of fiery energy that went through his body and he got through his workshop effortlessly.  after class, all the school children came up, hugged him at the knees and said “I Love You”.  this man stands 6 foot 3 inches and he said their expressions brought him to his knees.

so just try it today.

I love you,
