List the ways you can love others

Art Journal Prompt by @schulmanArt, Miriam Schulman

A great art journal prompt is to list the ways that you can show love for others. I started making this list during a long car ride. I am sure there are more ways, but since I was doing my fancy font I ran out of room but I think got some of the most essentials ones. I would love to know your ideas!


Prepare a meal

Perhaps it is because I am a Jewish mother, or a mother, but I feel the most basic way you can show love for someone else is to prepare a meal. Notice I didn't say "cook." It is just as loving to buy prepared foods from their favorite place and set the table nicely. I think the animal kingdom would agree that sharing your food is loving your family.


Tell them why they are special

You can just say "I love you" but even more loving is to tell them why they are special.



Even better than talking to people you love is to listen to them.


Pay attention

When you put down your juiced up rectangle ( y'know, that smart phone you are looking at right now) you are showing love. Give them your attention, your full attention.
