16 Nov For the Sake of Love
When Esther, the queen of Persia, entered the King’s quarters, Ahasuerus proclaimed, “What is your wish, up to the value of half of the kingdom will be made.”
The idea of granting wishes to a loved one is part of history. We do for those we love. But even greater is the one who does for strangers. These people are true humanitarians; they love unconditionally. They love as it was commanded: “Love Thy neighbor as you love thyself.”
I don’t mean to get so spiritual, but in a world filled with greed, where each person is looking into their own personal needs, their wants, their situations, it is heartwarming to meet someone who finds the time and is committed to using their influence to do good just for the sake of love. To grant wishes because she can make them happen.
Simonetta Lein is a top fashion influencer, but she is much more than that; she is an author, a model, and an actress. Born in Italy but transplanted to America, she loves this country as if she was born here. But even more than that, she is a giver, a lover of people, a true humanitarian.
It seems these days that every pretty girl becomes an influencer on social media. Actors and actresses are influencers because they know how to act on the screen. But Simonetta knows how to act in real life! She knows how to use her reach to spread love, and that, to me, is what a true influencer really is.
I am not “Forbes,” and I may not be qualified to nominate anyone any specific thing in a way that others will quote me. But if you are reading this, I want you to know that I nominate Simonetta Lein the type of role model we need more of, the type of influencer that can inspire the heart and soul of those watching, and thus creating a ripple effect of kindness.
She has style; she is beautiful inside and out but don’t ignore the leadership role she has and what a dream with a good heart can attain.
I wish for the world to see what is possible to accomplish with love and kindness. How beautiful the world would be if we would all be looking to grant wishes to those around us who are less fortunate than us. The world needs healing, but we all can be healers. It is a choice that we can make. Let’s make it for the sake of love!
Simonetta Lein is the founder of the Wishwall Foundation.
