Love is an infinite subject. It is a beautiful and fascinating subject. It is a beautiful feeling and a beautiful story. If love is a part of your life and it is a part of most lives, then your life has been, is or will be a beautiful story to tell. Love of course does not stand alone. Although love can be the main plot to your life story, especially if you make it so, It is not the only chapter to life and no life story is just about love. Even the best love stories have some twists and turns to them. That is life.
Today is about love. There are moments and relationships to all our lives that are supposed to bring us nothing but joy but somehow, we allow these moments and relationships to transform themselves into something else like stress, pressure, anger, resentment and or antagonism. To each day there are moments or even a single moment and or a single person to bring you joy but if the transformation occurs or has already occurred, you deny yourself such moments of joy and instead grant access for the negative moments to rule the day.
Each day is neither good nor bad but a blank slate or a blank page to add more content to the story that is your life. What better to add than love? Life is neither good nor bad. Life is life and whether or not it is good or bad is a matter of perception and emotions based on a series of events or a lack of them thereof that depend on you. Your perception and emotions are of course affected by the actions of others but the percentage that belongs to the others is negligible compared to the percentage that belongs to you. You are of your own body, your own mind and your own soul and the portions of your love, your emotional turbulence or emotional tribulations are yours to manage.
Love is like a ship to help you sail through life more smoothly. Love is also like an anchor in life for the turbulent moments to life. You are your own anchor man or woman but you also have others and things in life to help anchor your ship from time to time or time and time again. Life is just more than existing or being alive. It becomes about feeling alive, having purpose, being on an exciting journey to wherever the sea of life takes you. Nothing better to have on board with you than love.
Life requires us all to be something or to do something as we all sail through its infinite waters to known or unknown horizons. It does not take much time to be the something but it can take longer to find the something to do that is truly you. To be the something is the assigned from being a child, to teenage, to adult, to being a couple or grown ups and then a parent. At each stage of being, the search for the to do continues until it is found and if or when that happens the being and the doing merge.
If you can love who you are at any point in time or of being you, you find peace and joy along the way. If you can learn to love where you are now and what you do now, even if it is not your happy destination or ending, you will find the clear mind to sail to the happy destination that you want to get to. If you allow yourself to be overwhelmed by any negative storms and fail to use your anchors as provided by life, you will find yourself cast into a negative loop or to a place that becomes extremely difficult to sail away from.
Keep your ship sailing with some love. Do what you do with love. Wake up to love who you are and let that feeling ripple through the day to touch others in a positive way. If you are already where you want to be, say thanks to the universe. If you are not there yet, keep on sailing to your destination with lots of love.
