Just Love 

John Lennon said, “It matters not who you love, where you love, why you love, when you love or how you love. It matters only that you love.” I have learned to love deeper because of the relationships around me. I have witnessed unconditional love and strength because of other relationships that did not work out. There is nothing more beautiful than studying the human spirit when it doesn’t know it’s being observed. There is nothing lovelier than those moments of losing yourself into another. Presence is all we have right now. This is the only guarantee because in a heartbeat it can be altered. It could be our last breath or it can be the start of something beautiful. 

Stay in your state of wonder and enchantment. Live through an open heart. Forgive the past. Let go of all the things that no longer serve you. Love because you have nothing else to give and because you recognize it as a boomerang of deep emotions. Every part of your BEing is love. It’s in those moments of pure ecstasy that we find ourselves closer to divinity. You don’t have to participate in every argument or disagreement. You get to choose self-love and awareness.

Today’s Reminder

Life is not meant to be a constant struggle. It’s not meant to be dreaded, avoided, and rejected. Don’t forget to breathe, live, love, laugh. Don’t forget the amazing privilege of being here in spite of all the challenges surrounding you. Do something with the gratitude. You are not a mistake. This life is not some erroneous experiment. You have a purpose. Have a blessed day.
