Love is all that matters, really.
We feel lucky if we experience great love in our lives. But really that love is within us.
I’ve always believed in the best kind of love stories. And I still do. These can be love stories and relationships of any kind.
Sometimes things don’t work out how we want them to. Sometimes we’re disappointed. But nobody can take away our spirit or our power to love. That is ours, to keep.
Love is what makes the world go round. It’s yours to give. You get to choose how and where you share it. Choose wisely. And don’t hold back.
Don’t live with regrets. Make amends. Be bold and brave. Don’t leave things unsaid or unfinished.
Be a person you’re proud of. Be a person that’s full of life. Be a person that’s willing to take every opportunity.
Know that you matter. That you really, really matter. To others or to someone. Don’t underestimate the difference you make.
We light up each other’s lives and we add meaning, sometimes without even realising it.
At the end of the day it will be the love we gave and the relationships we had that will matter. The memories we made that were filled with and strengthened by love.
There are no guarantees in this life. Only that one day our lives will come to an end. Which may sound morbid but it’s also an invitation to remember to live more fully and bravely now.
Why not dare to love, despite the risks? Why not go all out?
Why not say what you really want to say? Why not do and be what you really want to?
Because this is it. This is our time now.
Whilst we can’t control what goes on around us, we can control who we’re being and what we’re offering. We can decide on the love we give and the life we’re living.
It doesn’t matter how things look on the outside. All that matters is how they feel on the inside.
We get to have a love affair with life, in whichever ways we choose.
We get to decide who we share our love with, who we are privileged enough to love, who we’ll be and where we’ll leave our mark.
Love is the answer. Love is always the answer.
