Paris.  Beirut.  Nigeria.  Kenya last April.  I’m losing track of what happened when.  There’s been so many terrible, destructive acts.  Each day there seems to be a new story.   I’m tired of hearing these stories.  I know most of us are tired of hearing these stories.  We want things to be better. We want peace, happiness, love.

These words may sound aspirational, unattainable, and dare I say, hippie? However, I don’t know very many people who wouldn’t want to experience these things in their life on a regular basis.

There is a solution.  More Love.  It’s not always easy to love someone who you don’t like so start with loving yourself a little more.  Love the parts of you that you do love.  It may sound simple and that’s because it is simple.

Have you heard the statement, “that which you focus on expands”?  Focus on love and guess what?  Love expands all around you.

I don’t have many words to describe all that I’ve felt lately but yesterday, due to a recent concert tour announcement, I was reminded of one of my favorite Dixie Chicks songs, “More Love”.  Here’s a snippet:

“More love, I can hear our hearts cryin’
More love, I know that’s all we need
More love to flow in between us
To take us and hold us and lift us above
If there’s ever an answer, it’s more love

We’re afraid to be idle
So we fill up the days
We run on the treadmill
Keep slavin’ away

‘Til there’s no time for talkin’
About trouble in mind
And the doors are all closed
Between your heart and mine

More love, I can hear our hearts cryin’
More love, I know that’s all we need
More love to flow in between us
To take us and hold us and lift us above
If there’s ever an answer, it’s more love

Just look out around us
People fightin’ their wars
They think they’ll be happy
When they’ve settled their scores

Let’s lay down our weapons
That hold us apart
Be still for just a minute
Try to open our hearts

More love, I can hear our hearts cryin’
More love, I know that’s all we need
More love to flow in between us
To take us and hold us and lift us above
If there’s ever an answer, it’s more love”

~Dixie Chicks
