To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Have you ever thought why when it comes to matters of the heart; we tend to complicate things so? I mean you would think that being that these things being so organic and uncontrollable, yet we screw them up to badly. We over think and over analyze it and try to figure out the meaning of things said and glances exchanged instead of actually just letting things be and enjoying the ride.
We waist so much energy trying to get the other person to fall for us only to decide later if we want to fall for them, it is an exercise in neurosis. For some reason we get this high knowing someone else wants us, guarding us from the desperation and uncontrollable energy that comes with being in the love space. The reason for this, I suppose is that we are so caught up in finding the one. The one that will love us or the one that will fix us or the one that will stay; this journey to find the one consumes us and keeps us from enjoying people that come into our lives. We dismiss them because they aren’t the one.
What if we spent less time looking for the one and actually invested in being the one. Then just maybe someone will show up looking for us.
Always in Love,
