Do you ever do it? Have those moments where you’re kinda scouring the Internet, maybe it’s Pinterest. Maybe just Googling. You’re inspired and yet can’t find that one quote or image that really conveys what you’re feeling at that moment. This very thing was happening to me as I was unable to sleep the other night. I know, I know. This is me being vulnerable at the moment. Brace yourselves.
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about love. What a big, massive, life-consuming word that is, right? L-O-V-E. A powerful emotion…and one that everyone wants. Whether it’s from family. From a significant other. From a child. I’ve never met a single soul who didn’t want some kind of love in their life.
Even at my darkest moments, I’ve craved love. And really, I’ve been fortunate enough to have a completely loving family from the day I set foot on this earth. But, I can also say that the other kind of love (in a partner) is not so easy. The gravity of that emotion. That feeling. It scares people. It can fade. But does it ever really disappear? And if it does – was it ever really love to begin with?
I think true love never completely goes away. I’ve taken a look back on some great loves of my life. Charlotte claims we only get two in a lifetime. But perhaps, so far, I’ve only really had one. So I guess not all hope is lost? Who’s to say. I’m not too worried about it, though.
I’m not sure what kind of love is out there for me. Who that will be, and when it will hit me. But I do know one thing: I’m ready for it. I’m not afraid. And I won’t settle until I have just that.
