A smile came to my face when I saw this “prompt”, how could I not write about it. If you are a new follower of mine, you may not be aware of my history with the word “magnetic” and my vehicle. Yes, my vehicle has some invisible magnet on it that attracts many objects to it. Not other vehicles thankfully, but things like mailboxes, sign posts, the garage door, etc. Can you relate? Does your vehicle have the same invisible magnet? Feel free to let me know that I am not alone in this! While this magnetic attraction has not caused anything serious to happen, it has left its share of dents on my vehicle. I try to tell my husband that I like to keep things even. If one corner of the vehicle has a dent, shouldn’t the other?
While thinking about this word this morning I started thinking of how I want to be magnetic. No, that doesn’t mean I want to bump into things, I may do that occasionally. What can I say? When you are half awake it can be easy to do.
I want to be magnetic in a way that attracts others, not things! I want to shine out happiness and joy to others. I want to attract a smiles and laughter. Remember laughter is great exercise for the heart!
I want to draw others to the magnet of kindness and peace, want it to be such a powerful magnet that it reaches around the world!
If you are sad and lonely, if your heart is breaking, I want to be a magnet to draw you in and let you know I care.
If you google magnets and magnetic force you will find that there is some amazingly powerful magnets out there! There may be some incredibly strong magnets in the world, but what about the strong power that we ourselves hold?
Don’t underestimate the power that you can have! I know I said it before, but I will say it again. The power of a simple word, smile or deed can be so strong. I am sure that each of us can probably go back in time and remember the power that some kind words or deeds had to our heart! How they filled our heart with warmth.
Those warm feelings can come back to you when you least expect it. A memory hit me from 2 years ago and my heart was flooded with warmth again and thankfulness for what my friend did. It was simple really, and I don’t even think she realized how much it meant, for to her it was nothing. She showed up where I was at the time and gave me a tight hug. She drove to the wrong place at first, but didn’t give up and found me. Found me at a time when my heart was breaking. She knew that she couldn’t fix things for me, she couldn’t change what had happened, but she knew she could be there for me. She could give me the power of a hug and hugs can be so very powerful! Is there a stronger magnetic pull than the power of a strong hug to your heart? I don’t think so.
What is your magnet going to attract today?
