TO LOVE IS EASY.TO LOVE SOMEONE,IT CAN BE DIFFICULT.KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

Loving a movie or hobby, or job is relatively easy.

Loving someone takes patience, understanding, the capacity to know they have faults that you have to accept, and accepting them as who they show up to be.

Being authentic sounds so cool, but it is simply raw. As we grow out of seasons in our lives, we will change. We never remain the same. And that’s the exciting thing consistency; change is consistent.

Loving someone is also fun, despite the differences you may share. The differences bring beauty into a relationship that is necessary when two people are authentic to themselves. Differences can bring joy and laughter while getting to know each other with an open mind and open heart.

We have to be vulnerable, and although sometimes it may hurt, it can also bring peace. A peace where sharing yourself with someone who wants to listen and take time to understand you is like no other; it’s love.

However, we should always face the truth by asking ourselves, am I ready to love someone as they are without asking them to change? People don’t change for others; they truly change for themselves. And while it may sound selfish, it’s a form of self-awareness. We all do what is best for ourselves.

So as we think about our partner, relationships, and friendships we should take it easy on ourselves and take it one day at a time.

The Funny Thing About Happiness.

Happiness is an emotion that is inconsistent.

Waking up happy feels nice. 

Living life happy is a gift. 

Going to bed feeling full filled is a blessing. 

But how many of us get to experience this?

Without sadness we don’t appreciate being joy. 

Peace heals the weary. 

Peace. Healing. Joy. 

Every Day is a new chance to get closer to being happy. 

Small steps everyday of peace. 

Small steps everyday to heal. 

Small steps everyday towards joy. 

The funny thing about being HAPPY is that it’s a daily choice.

Choose wisely 🙂

Till next time,

How I Imagined Love Would Look Like…

Our eyes would meet and our souls would communicate immediately. The conversations would draw us closer to one another. Closer to my heart and his. Love would look like a never ending connection. No need to ask for respect, loyalty or communication.

All of it would have a natural flow. Like a river, a steady consistent pace of give and take. Always feeling a sense of joy, an instant smile because we feel so comfortable and safe with each other. Filled with Laughter because we know it makes us feel soooo good.

No sense of time and place because regardless we feel as though the world has paused for our love. Because our love is like a slow cooking comfort meal, warm and healthy and delicious making us want more and more.

A bond that last till the sun sets on our last breathe…

till then that’s what I IMAGINED love would look like.
