"I read something yesterday that said that our goal here is not to do things perfectly, to get it right, or to not get hurt. Our goal is to become so strong, so rooted in our faith, so available for love that it doesn’t matter if we fall or get hurt because we accept every bit of it as an experience that was created uniquely for us; custom-built just for us in this moment in time. When we change, when we actually make the decision to change and make a new choice – life opens up."
I read that from an old post written back in January and it still speaks volumes to me. The thought of falling in love again is absolutely terrifying for me. Spending time this past week with someone who has been a part of my life for many years and feeling that little flutter again after all this time is so refreshing and eye-opening and hopeful.
I think there are some people in this world that our hearts will always pull toward.
And that scares me. How do you know what things to go after in life? What things are meant for you forever and what things are meant for you for a period of time, however long or short? What things are just far-fetched dreams and what things are within reach, waiting for you to embrace them and never let go?
While some of this is about love, some of it is just about life.
I know I have to make myself available to it. Even if I fall and get hurt again and again and again, it is about the experience that was created specifically and uniquely just for me.
Life will open up. Love will open up.
You just have to let go, have faith. There are some situations we can look at and think, "I have no idea how this is going to work out." But if we want it, and it is right for us, and in harmony with the rest of our plan, it will happen.
