Let me be love


About the poem:

Setting an intention is a skill that most of us aren’t taught early in life. Instead of worrying and waiting to see what happens, it’s more effective (and more fun!) to set an intention for harmony and understanding in all of our interactions.

About the author:

Joan Gregerson writes about how to enjoy life, sharing tidbits she has learned over the past 52 years. She is passionate about this: that love is IT, baby! Let’s find ways to do IT better together.

I can also say that although this a prayer, I have no frickin’ clue who the prayer is going out to. And also, I know that it works just fine that way.
