36 Ways to Show Love to Others

36 Ways to Show Love to Others | The Kardia Blog Last Tuesday I had the chance to join my first #fireworkpeople Twitter party. #fireworkpeople is a community for creatives, dreamers, and entrepreneurs that is full of encouragement! I'm so happy I found such a welcoming and supporting community. The topic we discussed last Tuesday was on how to love others. There were so many great responses and an amazing discussion on what it really means to love. Encouragement and support was everywhere! Days later, I found myself still thinking about how I can show love to others, even to those who don't show it to me. While this list isn't a complete list of the ways you can show love to others, it's a great starting point. So today I challenge you to find ways to show someone that you love them, and then go do it.
