All You Need Is Love
It’s hard to believe 2010 is coming to a close—it went by faster than most years I remember. As we approach a new year, make resolutions to eat healthier, drink less, work out more, quit A, start B, learn how to C…I ask you all to pause, and acknowledge something as simple as contentment with what we have.
About a year ago, the (Starbucks) RED campaign released a video aimed at raising awareness about AIDS in Africa. Citizens in 156 countries around the world were filmed simultaneously singing The Beatles’ ever-popular All You Need Is Love. People from Bolivia, Slovenia, Qatar, Madagascar, Palau, Afghanistan, Israel, Chile and more united to perform their rendition of the song.
Suddenly, all my holiday stress and excitement for a new year fell away. Forget what commodities we want. Instead, think about all we need. You know the answer.
Happy Holidays, and a Wonderful New Year!
