It is, what it is…

Love can mean so many different things. To so many different folk. The only thing I know for sure is it’s not what I thought it should be like. I love fairy tales with happy endings and Romantic comedies!
For the first 33 years of my life, I thought all that feel good with amazing sexual chemistry was what love was. As I have jumped (or pushed) into my journey of enlightenment, I realize what a crock of crap my former belief of love was. I mean I was attempting to live life as characters created from the minds and personalities devise by the inhabitants of a little town we call Hollywood. I really set myself up for failure! The saddest part about this is that I’m not the only one. Human beings tend to learn by example whether that example is positive or negative. We as mass tend to go with the flow. From the beginning we choose what was perceived to be the right thing because it was the mainstream thing, because a chosen few dictated it was the best for all. Ok, I’m off on a tangent. So, back to the Love thang. My first lesson in love was the Disney Princess stories, then it was the Disney Princess movies. Which led me into my first real romance it mimicked Beauty and the Beast, without the happy ending but the right ending, I was blessed with two beautiful children. Seven years later I’m still learning valuable lessons…

I have looked into myself for the answers about love and found only that I’m worthy of it and deserve it. I have found some great books on love. I really liked the definition of love in the book The Road Less Traveled by M. Scot Peck, “I define love thus: “The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth.” Love is so much more than romantic feelings. Lastly, my guru told me in as so many words: When one loves, they love with all of themselves, this includes their faults. I have a jealous nature so when I love, I don’t only include all my positive traits but also I include my negative traits. I’m comfortable in saying my understanding of love grows as I grow as a being, this is all that matters.

  1. very nice post, able to relate to what you’re writing. loving one unconditionally has a latent effect of loving oneself unconditionally as well, and its a feeling words may never be able to describe
