With it being Valentines Day and all, I thought I would share my thoughts on love ❤️
Love is everywhere. We may not always see it or believe it, or even feel we are worthy of it, but it is there.
Sometimes love gets overlooked. Why? People become too busy or they simply feel that real, unconditional love, does not exist.
Love shows up in many ways, shapes and forms. Love often takes us by surprise, and all to often, just when we feel we are immune to it…….BAM! It hits us like a lightning bolt.
Love isn’t just about the feelings you get from your partner, or that girl/guy you think is a hottie. Love is also the compassion you feel when you know of, or can see someone else’s pain. Love is the sympathy you feel when you hear of another’s loss. Love is the joy you feel when you witness another’s success. Love is the passion within you, when you feel strongly on a topic or situation.
The world needs more love. People need more love.
If you love someone, or simply love something about someone; tell them!
If you love a cause and what it stands for; get involved!
Be open to the possibility of love; not just romantically, but in every aspect of life. Be open to receiving love; you see, for when you look at things from a place of love, there is no room for fear……
Keeping our emotions in check is often hard to do, so I’ve learned to just go with it. When I feel angry, I be angry. When I feel sad, I be sad. When I feel happy, I be happy. By doing this, I also release any anxiety I may be feeling. I allow the emotion to flow, instead of fighting it. I acknowledge it, instead of resisting it. It’s still a work in progress, but I am learning that by allowing myself to feel these feelings when I need to feel them, there is more room in my heart for love. I release the negative/fear based emotions sooner, and that frees up my heart and head space for positive, love based emotions.
You see, its love that sets us free, free to be ourselves, and live the life we are meant to be living.
As I said, it’s a work in progress………..
Wishing everyone a happy valentines!
Until next time; take care of you.
