It's been a little over two months since I posted. Nothing has changed, but everything is different. That's life.
There are few things that truly amaze me. 1.) Life, 2.) Happiness, and 3.) Love. In the past couple of months, all have come full circle in various ways. Here is what I know: Love is a gift of life and a partner to happiness. The simplicity is that it [love] can awaken your spirit; can heal the edges of a broken heart; and, can bring the clearest picture of clarity. I've seen this through friends, family, and colleagues... And, I've felt this through the same tokens of sacrifice.
Why do people open themselves to love? It's not easy. It's extraordinary scary. It's imperfect. It's even controversial, at times. But... It's RELEVANT; it's NECESSARY. Even with it's difficulty and stubbornness- it's worthy.
Most, if not all, reading this post associated love to a person in their life- which is perfectly appropriate. However, when you associate love to EVERYTHING in life- it makes a world of difference. Personally, I would sacrifice the societal "norms" and "traditions" for love. Why? Because, I know love will lead me in the right direction, always. This belief requires faith. It requires a person to disassociate actions that do not exhibit LOVE. Abuse, is not love; hatred, is not love; abandonment is not love; pain may not be love- but sacrifice certainly can be.
Here is my personal conviction: People may not fully understand why I push them- why I do what I do and say what I say; however, even in the "gossip" what I care is that they know my heart; that they understand my passion is real and relevant. And in turn, all I want from people is the same realness; the same opportunity to reflect and grow- because that's just who I am. I am not, nor will I ever be, an advocate of CAN'T; it [can't] has never succeeded.
Love plays a huge role in passion; motivation; drive; inspiration. Center your life around LOVE, absent of it's false fallacies, and your LIFE will come full circle. If love is only the people and circumstances that agree with what fits in your or "a" perception of LIVING, then how will you ever know reality? It takes courage to choose between what you fear most- but love more. And that... that very idea, is LOVE and LIVING in HAPPINESS.
Pray with me... For love; for happiness; for life.
