I’m ill prepared for today, but I figured I would talk about love. I haven’t been in a relationship since 2015, though I have had things to be thankful for in other relationships. And I feel like that is key to feeling good about life. I have been so single for so long now that I have learned to look at life the way it is and be thankful for what I do have. I have good friends and family nearby. I have family that I talk to on the phone often. I have a lot going for me outside of the Eros love that everyone chases.
Take a minute today to be thankful for all the love you do have. But love yourself too. Your desires are a good thing and you deserve to have them. Give yourself the love you give everyone. That’s what I’m learning right now. Maybe I don’t have a man, but I do have to spend time with myself and it’s miserable if I put everything into a relationship with a man and not into myself. Love makes us do strange things, but part of my healing has been to just know that I am loved anyway.
The love of God is in everything that keeps me afloat emotionally. I see it all the time. I had a lovely time with my best friend and her family and it made me grateful for them, but I also want to have that nuclear family someday. I will someday, but I have to love myself and my life the way it is first. And I feel like that is a key to share with everyone. Who are you grateful for?
