Looking for Love in all the wrong places! While that makes a good song, it does not have to be your mantra. Yet, I find many who are doing precisely that. They look for love in other counties, other states, or other places than right where they are. They might as well stop looking. Love does not work this way.
Love is found within your very own heart! It is not outside you and certainly not across the ocean, although you may have to cross an ocean of emotion to find Love. The journey of love begins by looking in the mirror; see the person looking back at you. Introduce yourself, and look into their eyes. Feel the feeling, whatever it may be. Sit with it for a while. Vow to take care of this person staring back at you. Tell them you Love them. Search deep down for this Joyful, light, and wondrous feeling of Love. It probably will not show itself right away. So this exercise becomes a daily event!
The next step is to go about your business of living life. Stop Looking for Love! Instead, let Love find you. As you are living and doing the things you enjoy, life will lead you to the Love you seek. It will be a sustainable Love, one you can live with because that is precisely what you are doing!
The practice of looking into the mirror may be uncomfortable or even scary at first, but after a while you will come to Love this person and this very act will be giving others permission to do the same.
There will be mis-steps and let downs along the way. This is life! Just keep moving forward and focus on living a Joyous life. Be generous with your Joy, share it with everyone! As you do this people are drawn to you. Now listen to your heart and it will let you know when the right person comes along.
Knowing what you desire in a partner is vital to the process. Look deep within your heart and ask “Who am I?” “What am I looking for in a relationship?” “How can I best express my Love?” The answers will bring your desires to life.
Love has only the limits you place upon it. Love is like a fill in the blank quiz, and you hold all the answers ♥
