THE POWER OF LOVE - Love Is Everything

I'M NOT A HIPPY....

OK. This is not some "run in the yellow flower field" sort of article. I am not preaching about loving the birds and the trees and the little tiny bug near my foot that I refuse to squash! I am talking about that feeling you have in your heart at the very moment you feel a tiny bit of pain or loss.

WHAT IS LOVE?

Well I have pondered this question for quite awhile.....through all of my relationships and friendships I have had in the past and now have today. Through all of the loss that I have lived through and when I lost my mother when I was a child. Many years later I lost the rest of my closest family but they live on in my heart every single day. Everything they left deep inside of me is still here. Faith, Hope and the belief in myself. That is love. I often think of the advice about LOVE that the "elders" gave me growing up and I often try to reflect and see if it all is true. See taking advice from people who "preach but do not live what they preach" is a waste of time. The only people who truly know "what love is" are the people that live it every day. In the little things they do, or the people and loved one's that they take care of. The thoughts, the emotions and the little gifts that they share every day. That is Love and I am thankful for the one's that truly love me. The one's that have never "let go" of me even in the hardest of times. The one's that I can pick up the phone anytime and know that they are there for me. This is truly a gift and I am forever thankful for these people in my life.

LOVE HEALS....

I truly believe LOVE is the best medicine in the world. I'm not just talking about romance, I am talking about opening your heart to everything and everyone around you. Ofcourse "trust" is an important issue, but do not go there right away or you may "miss something." When you are open to love, you give that feeling to someone else or it shows in everything you do. It is like a magical potion that makes everything all better. It could be expressed in a letter or an email. It can come across in your words or your actions and if your heart is true, you will receive love from someone else in some way or form. Sometimes you will never see it coming but when it does, embrace it.

LOVE AND MARRIAGE...

I think I have finally figured out that love can only come to those who are truly good friends in the beginning. Because once the honeymoon is over then they have to learn to live with eachother. I think quite a few people tend to get caught up in the romance, but never look into the real person and how they are in every day life. How they react to you when you are not in the throws of passion. How do you talk to eachother? What is your partners outlook on the future? Can you both be happy with eachother when times get rough. Can you sit down and discuss issues like adults. Does one person really stink at communication? Can you make sure that you stay "connected" at all times? This is really important because once the connection is "lost" it is really hard to get it back. Most relationships break down after the "disconnect" and each one acts out in different ways. Even if the relationship stays intact, resentment can build and a lack of trust can make everything go bad eventually. So, this is all important stuff before you marry someone. This is the main reason relationships and marriages eventually fall apart. Ego is another reason and many do not know that their ego is playing such a significant role in the demise of their relationship. Some people can't get past it and that is why they end up making the same mistakes over and over again. Love is not about "ego," love is about doing anything to make it work nomatter what. That is if you "love" the person you are with.

My favorite flower. This is for you.

Why did I write This Today?

I wrote this today because I feel like sharing "the love" that sits in my heart every day. I have felt love and I have felt pain, but I know love is around me today for sure. I can feel it and I know it. Writing here is all part of me reaching out to others and making some sort of difference to anyone who reads this. Even if I help one person who reads this not take someone for granted in their lives, then I have done something good. I have been taken for granted many times in my life but I have never given up on LOVE.

I never will.....

Love is a promise. Hate is a curse. Between them is the whole of the world. We have to choose which we will follow. I choose love. Sweet, miserable love.

You are a gifted writer Gpage. Love is everything. And when it is true, nothing else compares. It is worth every minute and you can see true love through the eyes and touch. Inspirational work and very well stated. It is always better to speak from the heart anyway.
