“Blue Bloods” star Donnie Wahlberg likes to live his life by spreading positive messages of love and peace. Luckily for him, the latter is easily conveyed with one quick gesture.
In a recent Instagram post, the “Blue Bloods” actor shouted out one of his fans who captured a cool shot of him at a concert. The concert, presumably, was the Aug. 6 show Wahlberg’s band, New Kids on the Block, put on at Fenway Park.
Instagram user @fan4life143 captured the “Blue Bloods” star on stage in a white baseball cap and open Red Sox jersey. While looking out at the fans in the audience, Wahlberg threw up the peace sign with a serene smile on his face. Concert-goers in front of the camera also raised the peace sign.
‘Nuff said. ✌🏼☮️#spreadloveandlovewillspread,” Wahlberg captioned his post.
‘Nuff said indeed. It’s incredible how much emotion can be conveyed with no words and just one simple hand gesture. But we all know Wahlberg isn’t afraid to use his words, especially the iconic phrase, “Spread love and love will spread.”
We’re not sure when or how the “Blue Bloods” star’s catchphrase began. But he does seem to embody it in many facets of his life. And he also encourages his NKOTB fans, or “Blockheads,” to embrace it too.
“I used to think it was my job to make sure you love me, then I realized it was my purpose to make sure you love yourself,” Wahlberg wrote in a tweet earlier last week. The NKOTB frontman isn’t afraid to get philosophical with his fans, as demonstrated by these earlier tweets.
‘Blue Bloods’ Star Donnie Wahlberg Gives Blockheads Something to Think About
A few days ago, the “Blue Bloods” star posed a thoughtful scenario and message to his followers about love and kindness.
“Sometimes we assume someone’s a bad driver. When they’re actually an exceptional driver of a damaged vehicle with bad steering or worn-out brakes, or a busted transmission. Same with life. Be kind,” Wahlberg wrote.
His perceptive post caused fans to take to the comments to expand on his words. Some agreed that you don’t know what other people are going through, while others related this metaphor to their own lives. All appreciated the fact that the “Blue Bloods” actor understood so well what many people experience.
Last week, Wahlberg even got into the comments himself to break down one of his philosophical messages with Blockheads.
“Unconditional #LOVE means — love without conditions. When we place conditions on #LOVE, perhaps we should question why we are placing conditions on it, rather than questioning why our supposed unconditional conditions aren’t being met,” Wahlberg tweeted.
When some fans posted a counterargument to his claims, Wahlberg actually responded to their messages with more thoughtful words and discussion points. Whether he agreed or disagreed, the “Blue Bloods” actor acknowledged several comments and tried to tie them back to his overarching message about spreading love.
