The parable of the “Love Cakes”

Love is like a tray of cupcakes.

You wake up every morning with a silver platter full of your unique offerings and take it with you as you walk out the door.

One by one you share your love with those in your life:

your friends

your family

your co-workers

your significant other

even strangers..

and as you do

your  tray gets lighter and lighter until it’s empty

freeing up both of your hands

to live..

beautifully,

freely,

fully.

💜

Unless you don’t.

💜

You see some of us hold on to love

and we lug around our increasingly heavy tray

every

single

day..

and our hands are so occupied with the burden

and weight

of this unshared love

that it becomes impossible

to think of anything else

or serve anyone else

but ourselves.

💜

Then there are times when we are so focused on

one person

one passion

one problem

that we dump every single one of our love cakes onto this

one single area..

day in and day out and..

 until suddenly

what we thought was a healthy offering

becomes

a sticky, overwhelming, sickening pile

of unappreciated

goop.

💜

Love is like a tray of cupcakes..

 how are you going to share yours today?
