I truly love this song. I have been in the past taken advantage of because of my loving heart. This song has bitter sweet memories as it was first shared with me by a man who claimed to love me be took advantage of me financially and emotionally because I chose to trust him. But I can tell you that I would not be the person I am today without the hardships that I have faced in my life.
One of my favorite quotes is by Mother Teresa she says “I know that God does not give me more than I can handle but sometimes I wish that he did not trust me so much”. So perfect. For me the handling of life’s ups and downs shows me parts of myself that I could not see otherwise.
The choice for love has to be trust and when it all falls apart there was real grief but there is also a growth that takes place that could never have taken place if I had not opened my heart.
Real love has to be about what I am feeling. Nobody can get me to love them. If I feel love even if it is misguided then I am open to either the lesson or the blessing that the universe has to share with me.
Being open can be hard when you have been hurt but even in the hurt there is something that grows inside if you allow it to.
For me I believe that I have gained much strength and I truly would not be the person that I am today if it was not for the disappointment of love in my life.
But I also learned to love myself more and it is a work in progress. I have found that if I just put my judgements aside then amazing things can show up in my life.
For me life has to be an adventure or it is nothing at all. Exploring this beautiful planet in which we live has been a real joy for me and every day I am grateful for the events that have lead me to where I am living today.
So I want you to know that the only choice that there ever is, is the choice for love.
Can you think of ways that you can choose more love in your life?
