Sometimes it is necessary to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy, or maybe just be. Maybe just surrender. I am a huge believer that if you give the world the best you have, the world will return it. Freedom is to feel what your heart desires, regardless of the opinion of others. Following your intuition fearlessly knowing it will lead you to a grand experience, wether it was what you expected or not, you will be stronger, wiser. Sometimes people are beautiful, not in what they say or how they look, but in what they are. Sometimes, it takes to look beyond their imperfections and into their soul. Sometimes before you can see the light, you must travel through darkness. I believe anything we love can be saved, we are just too egocentric to put in the work, to let go, to believe people can change. So we move on, to the next person. We feel that our time is valuable and when that time is deceived, we move on again. But to fall in love (or not) – to attempt the thing, to have a real experience, demands extraordinary amounts of courage and vulnerability and self-worth. We can’t be afraid of being hurt, love takes going into the deepest core of another person, it is a journey of discovery, in light and in darkness, of sharing love without becoming dependent, but allowing absolute freedom so that if one leaves, that love, that happiness you once shared...remains as part of you and is not dependent on the other.
I don’t even know where I was going with this, but just go love the $&@& out of people and put your ego down to the floor!!!!!!!
