Love Is All Around Us

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 191

I used to think that finding your one true love was absolutely impossible. I use to think that kind of love doesn't exist, that when you find someone who cares about you, you have similar interests and you want the same things that this was enough, that this was what love was. Truth is I got it all completely wrong!

Love is not turning yourself inside out and upside down for another. Love is not hiding pieces of who you are for another. Love is not making yourself small to make another happy. Love is not about keeping things the same. Love is not about sacrificing yourself for another. Love is not settling for less of a life than you deserve.

Love is about being patient with one another. Love is about being kind and taking care of one another. Love is about trying to be understanding and seeing things from each other's perspective. Love is about giving of yourself without wanting or expecting anything in return. Love is about supporting each other. Love is about being there to work your struggles through together. Love is about laughter and giggles together. Love is wanting the absolute best for each other. Love encourages you to grow and be the best version of you, that you can be. Love is constantly evolving.

Finding that kind of love is something I think we all aspire to. I think it is something we all dream about and is the plot to most romance novels and chick flicks. We all are looking for our happily ever after but do you recognize it when you have it? Do you take care of it? Do you treasure it for the absolutely amazing gift that it is?

Or are we too busy chasing love that you miss the love that is right in front of our own eyes? Do you even believe that love lasts? Do you believe that it somehow skipped me? Do you believe that the relationship that you are in, is that the best you can do? Do you believe you can make love better? Do you believe that you even deserve to be loved?

It doesn't matter how young or old we are, we are all looking to share our lives with, to give our hearts to and to make someone's day brighter, just because we are. Love is not perfect and it takes time. Love takes commitment and honesty even when it is uncomfortable. And real and true love, gives you the courage it takes to face the most difficult times in your life, to forgive and to let go of the things that we hold on to way too long. Love is not a fairy tale but is truly the most precious gift you can ever give to another. So look for love it is around us every day. Give love freely. Tell those that are special to you just how much they mean to you. And lastly, treat your love with the respect and gratitude they deserves because you never know when it could be your last chance.
