There is no greater gift in this world than to give and receive love. This does not mean taking love, nor does it mean forfeiting it to someone attempting to steal it.

Are you giving love to those around you, and those you interact with on a daily basis?

Are you giving those that love your the opportunity to share that with you?

Do you have walls up that prevent people from being a fulfilling part of your life?

Are you pushing your comfort zones in order to be more open to giving and receiving love?

By love I mean compassion, support, interest, acknowledgment, respect, and understanding. By love I mean, giving people the benefit if the doubt. By love I mean not hoarding love. By love I mean wishing someone the best. By love I mean BEING THERE for someone.

We don’t always live in a friendly world. Not everyone is going to look out for one another. But we can all do it a little bit more.

We can all love a little bit more. There’s no cap on that.

About Lauren Rains

Hi my name is Lauren Rains. I write about the human experience. Through thick and thin, I’m dedicated to growth, adventure, integrity, and love. The Mad To Live is based on my pursuits, experiments, research, and lessons of challenge and triumph in all areas of life, including being entrepreneur, a writer, a philosopher, a traveler, a teacher, a student, a creative, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a significant other, a stranger and the list goes on. At the end of the day, I believe human beings are here for two reasons: 1.) to love one another with total acceptance, and 2.) to see what we’re made of as we create the possibilities for an abundant life for ourselves and for others. No more bullshit, let's just enjoy our lives.

Share with me what you're getting into that matters to you. It could be stepping into entrepreneurial pursuits, embarking on a journey of the self, making a crazy life change, or even if you're totally stuck. I want to connect with, support, collaborate with, and learn from as many people as possible through this blog (that means you!)
