Love is a very delicate thing. Frustration always rears its ugly head whenever impatience enters the equation. The key to love is this; love is an endless cycle. There is ultimately no life without love, for a life without love is predictable.
Predictability takes away all chances, or spontaneous blessings. When living, people come and go in your life each and every day to teach you lessons. These lessons can result in pain, struggle, and can build up rather large walls and prevent you from seeing the light.
The light is blocked by the struggle of moving on from the poison that may have once been love in your life. However, once you let go and learn to say no to these demons that may arise from your past, you now put yourself in the position of control. You take control of your happiness, and allow the universe to provide you with the love that will ultimately complete you.
Always have faith that there is a plan for you, out of your scope of vision. You may not have all the answers now as to where you are meant to be, but that is the beauty of life; experience will always lead to discovery. Patience is necessary, for this process takes time. Quoted from one of my original songs, “Forever feels like nothing when you’ve found the one who’s worth the stay.” In order for this special love to enter your life, you must be willing to receive, and allow the journey to unfold within time. Enjoy every moment of the journey, for it only happens once.
You can only finally learn to receive the ultimate love when you realize this: You are free to be who you want to be. You are allowed to change your mind, live carelessly, make stupid mistakes, act like a full blown idiot, express passion for what you love, and stand up for what you feel is right. Be who you are, and never let the standards or others who define you, weaken you to defining yourself.
Once you learn that self love is the ultimate love, the forces out of your control will work in your favor, providing you with what you have been searching for all along. However, you must first complete yourself, and then the light will shine through
“Lessons On Love”
You can’t control the world or choose the hand you’re dealt.
It starts to change your life with every feeling felt.
It brings a light inside of you, whirls from deep within.
As it rises to the surface, this sea that we are in.
You’re just a tiny shell, in this world of many.
Waiting to be sought, among a shore of plenty.
But yet, you lie there, glistening in the rays of sun,
staying warm, tossed about in storm, you’re path not yet forlorn.
You don’t know where the wind may take you,
you only know this for sure;
When you’re picked up in a second and looked at with a gaze,
you may be put down, and picked up again, in many different ways.
But on that day, when you’re selected, just remember this.
The journey it took for you to get there…
What if you weren’t missed?
You may have ended up second best, or tossed and left there waiting.
Or you may have been taken, then left alone, among a collection.
But God had other plans in store.
He was just waiting for you, little shell, to glisten once more.
Identity Magazine is all about empowering women to get all A’s in the game of life – Accept. Appreciate. Achieve.™ Every contributor and expert answer the Identity 5 questions in keeping with our theme. Their answers can be random and in the moment or they can be aligned with the above article. As a team, we hope to inspire and motivate ourselves and inspire you to get all A’s.
1. What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? What are you still working on accepting?
To just do it. If you want something, go after it. If you want it all, then work for it. Always accept that it won’t be an easy road, but it will ALWAYS be worth it. The challenge is keeping your faith when the road becomes rocky. That is the time you need to believe in yourself the most.
2. What have you learn to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? What are you still working on to appreciate?
I forever grab life by the horns. It is scary at times, but I know that if I just accepted what was easy, then I would instantly become bored. I know my purpose in life is beyond what is definable.
3. What is one of your most rewarding achievements in life? What makes YOU most proud? What goals and dreams do you still have?
I took the leap of faith to actually do what makes me happy. No, it is most definitely not an easy journey. However, if you keep growing, and changing, and putting yourself in situations that allow you to create something out of nothing? Well, a year will go by and you will realize, you are much closer to being the person you have always dreamed of being. That is truly the beauty of living life.
4. We all have imperfections, so we think. The truth—we are all perfectly imperfect. What are your not-so-perfect ways? What imperfections and quirks create who you are—your Identity?
I am a very sensitive person, and with that comes my feelings being crushed very easily. However, I feel this creates my identity. This sense of vulnerability allows me to share my soul with the world, and create music that is unique and real.
5. “I Love My…” is an outlet for you to express and appreciate all the positive traits that make you…well… YOU! Sharing what you love about yourself will make you smile, feel empowered, and uplift your spirit and soul. (we assure you!) Identity challenges you to complete the phrase “I Love My…?”
Passion. I love everything and therefore, even when I feel lost in the world, the world ALWAYS provides for me. Allowing the world to love me has been my greatest challenge, and continues to challenge me each and every day. However, there is no place I’d rather be than this life I am in right now.
