If it were my last day here on this earth in a physical form, I would leave these words with others so they may share the love I had in my life.
To love people right, whether you knew them or not. To be willing to learn what you can change so you may know how to live life right and to the fullest – so you may impact this world instead of just living in this world.
To show the people in your life that you love them by actions and not only by words of “I Love You.” To express emotions with sincerity and truth and to forgive others mistakes, for mistakes are golden when used in a life-changing manner. To understand that you have the power to change this world with love and not judgment, but only understanding that there are reasons why people hold anger and fault within them.
To see that all people are worth saving and not just selected ones. To understand that the people who have done worse wrongs in life than others, only hold more pain inside themselves to commit such hateful acts. Knowing that people who are cruel in ways that we cannot imagine, are the ones who had no love at all and had neglect and cruelty in its place. So when you do come across that love you have been searching for or any kind of love, have the knowledge to take care of that love, with love, and never mistreat it. For it will only make you lose that love, you wish not to lose, and only give pain to people you do not wish to scar. To be willing to apologize with compassion and sorrow and to leave out who was wrong and who was right.
To give to others that are in need, whether it is a hug, an ear to listen, support and even money to those who are in need of comfort. To give without wanting anything back, but peace in your heart that you have helped someone who was suffering with fear. To have their smile and the relief in their eyes be your reward. To always remember, not only fight for someone to hear you, but to fight to hear them as well. To communicate with wanting peace to be the outcome and only love, understanding and compassion – be the road for your tone in your expression of words. To understand someone’s expression of pain given by you, even if you did not realize that you caused an act you do not like to feel yourself.
To fight for a love that no one else has because it does exist. To want to be the person who cares of others’ feelings and not a person who cares about your own. To want others to find happiness and not just for you, while showing this world that there is still hope of bettering this world of fear, cruelty and lost hope.

That was so beautiful….thank you!! I want to be that completely loving person you just described.. It’s so easy to get sucked back into your own head and forget the real reason you’re here. Thank you again for this precious reminder!
Thank you Melinda for your very kind words xo and you are most welcome 🙂
After reading your book Days go by Not love, I finally understand how to love this sincerely.
It was a hard journey as I had so much to work on, but your words and guidance gave me the courage and strength to not give up and allowed me to change from my soul. Every day is a new gift and I know I could never except not being a loving person.
I still read and treasure this book. Thanks to the beautiful way you write, I am able to get back on track when I’m feeling lost and enjoy the happiness I’ve worked so hard for.
It is my daily desire to love in all ways. Thank you for helping me see and feel what real love is.
Well written 👍.
