It wasn't logic, it was love.

"It wasn’t logic, it was love."

No one can comprehend the why. No one will understand the reason. No one will be able to explain. It is Love.  Plain and simple. It is a peculiar thing – love. Not easy to define nor easy to describe.  Just love.  A surprising and unexpected source once told me that love is a funny thing. Love is not always a choice. Often your heart overrides your mind. You can try to direct it one way or another, but eventually, the heart will run the show.  Love is a feeling and logic never enters into the equation.  It can be the happiest of times, but also the most miserable.  Only two people in the world can comprehend love – the two people who are in it.  Do not look for the logic in love, you will not find it. Instead follow your heart.  The rest, well, that will soon follow.

The People in Your Life

If there's one thing I have learned and taken to heart is that people come into your life for a reason. Often, we can't see it, understand it or even believe it but that's the way it works. There are those that appear when you need distraction, those that appear when you need to be shaken to your core. There are those that see you through the hard times, and those that are meant to share successes and happiness. But the most important thing we can learn from these people who come in and out of our lives, is to accept and not always question the why. You see, the why will eventually become clear. And often it isn't the why but simply the what - what were they here to help you through and did you listen? Did you take it to heart and become changed by it? For if you didn't and simply let the aha moment slip away, their presence was merely wasted and you completely unaffected.

Life: Live it - Imperfectly

In a perfect word, you would meet the perfect mate, you’d have perfect dates, of course have perfect sex, you'd communicate quite perfectly and live a very blissful, perfect life. Now that you have finished laughing your head off, think about this – perfection aside from being obviously unattainable, would be, in a word, boring. The whole point of life is that while on our quest for impossible perfection, we are meant to experience the awkwardness of meeting perfect strangers, the craziness of dating, the occasional “what was I thinking?” sex, and the comedic miscommunication of what may have been a very significant moment.  
Life's truth is that it is imperfect, mistakes are supposed to happen and we are meant to experience it in just that way. The rules are a bit "let's make it up as we go" and you have to dodge the curve balls, and feel the bumps that inevitably come your way. This is what life is made of. This is the stuff of living. Sure, there are glimpses of perfection: an amazing kiss, the full moon illuminating the ocean, the warmth of someone’s hand, the quiet of the morning, the brilliance of the stars.  But there’s something about the insanity of it - the rush of the unknown, the adrenaline of excitement, the breathlessness of possibility. Life is not perfect. It is not meant to be perfect. It's messy and chaotic. But, if you think about it, isn't life with all it's imperfections, really the best way to live?  Perhaps that's the perfection of it. Maybe, just maybe, it's in the acceptance of the imperfect that we finally attain life's perfection.
