As petty as this may seem, telemarketers can present some of our greatest challenges to show love. Why? Is it simply because they’re interrupting us? Is it because we resent the fact that they can interrupt us?
I’m most challenged by telemarketers when I’m hoping for somebody else. You may be most challenged by telemarketers when you’re home alone on a Friday night, It’s when we’re already challenged that we feel most annoyed. It’s when I’m not feeling sought after that I’m most disappointed to hear a telemarketer’s voice.
It’s not about how the telemarketer makes us feel, it’s about how we already feel, how we choose to feel!
But, there’s no better time to show love than when we hunger for love. And, how could the universe make it any easier than to ring the phone right there in front of us … with somebody on the other end of the line who likely feels a little unloved? Go ahead — tell me it’s a coincidence. That doesn’t change the opportunity.
The lesson — or the gift — lies in our greatest challenge … whatever that looks like or sounds like in the moment. So, before you hang up on the gift courier, take a breath and think love. Give love — with all of its kindness. When you handle love enough to give it away, you can’t help but feel it. And feeling it automatically changes your countenance.
The way to get what you seek is to give it. How easy is that!
The phone is ringing to get your attention, to present an opportunity! Look for other opportunities. They’ll continue to show up as often as you need them. The gifts just keep coming!
Sending you love and smiles.
