I came across an interesting read about love and how it just is. Not unlike the movie that states, Love actually is all around, the author points out how love is not about excuses or uncertainty but instead is about what is. When someone loves you, there is no question. You know it. You feel it. They find ways to be with you because they want it. Your presence in their life makes their life better. They are the best version of themselves when you are with them. You feed their mind, their heart and their soul. It is a feeling that transcends all boundaries. Love is not supposed to be filled with angst. It is not a game or a puzzle to be mastered or figured out. When someone loves you, you are still and confident in the knowing that they do, without question, without hesitation, without thought. The important thing to remember then as we allow those who say but do not show that they love us is this: “love simply is. And you have to let it be, or not be, naturally.”

Let go of what's holding you back

Have you ever noticed that there are people in our lives that hold you back? Like the slow moving vehicle barely driving the speed limit in the fast lane, they comfortably and often obliviously keep us from getting where we’re going. It can be a friend, a family member, a romantic interest. Sometimes it’s obvious: the naysayers, the doom and gloom crowd, or the glass half empty people. But what about those that don’t fit into those categories yet still manage to take steam from our otherwise perfect run?  On the highway of life, why is it that we allow ourselves to coast with the pack instead of passing some people up?

Life presents too many obstacles and challenges to allow other people to hold you back. Instead of following blindly and keeping up with traffic, it’s better to assess and act, carefully but definitively, to go down your own road and live your own adventure. Not everyone we encounter is meant to have a permanent place in your life. Sometimes it’s better to let people go or simply pass them up. Truly at some point, a time will come when you find that comfortable speed and the smooth road that will lead to inner peace.

The Right Moment

So many of us spend our days waiting – waiting for things to settle down, waiting for that great job or waiting for that perfect person. We wait for the tide to turn, for things to go our way, for life to get back on track. We wait - wait for the Right Moment. But really, what are we waiting for? The simple fact is that there is no Right Moment. We go through life and the ups and downs, the ins and outs, the certain and the uncertainty is what makes life worth living. It’s taking that leap of faith, working through adversity and bravely taking that chance that gives life meaning, purpose and satisfaction. You can't wait for  the adventure, the excitement, or the worth in the living. The truth is, there will never be a Right Moment. So instead of sitting on the sidelines waiting for it, jump in and go for it. Live your life. The Right Moment is now. What are you waiting for?
