Nurture

RDP Thursday:

Nurture

verb: care for and encourage the growth or development of.

noun: the process of caring for and encouraging the growth or development of someone or something.

My featured image is kind of random! I did so many assignments in the past semester that the rebel in me has been fighting to break free and do something that’s just “because.” No judgement, no grade.

I looked for inspiration this morning and saw the word nurture. That’s a great word! Last night I sat around and wondered what I have to say anymore. You would think with all of the classes I’ve been taking I would have a lot more to talk about.

Here is something I’ve faced recently: “What do you do when someone close to you is struggling or in pain?

I don’t know if any psychology class I’ve taken thus far has given me the answer: Love them. Encourage them. Nurture them.

I guess you don’t really need a class for that.

Anyway, I’m not sure about the image. I wanted to show the stark contrast between someone who is in the dark, and someone who has been loved and encouraged. It could be better… if I spent more time on it… but I’m going out today and wanted to finish before I left. It’s the meaning that counts.

So… that’s my thought today. Love someone who needs love. Nurture them. Even if it’s yourself.

Peace & Love!

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
