We Live for Love

Hello all!

I had an interesting thought today, nothing unique or different. Nothing that hasn’t been spoken, or written, or sung. Of course, it’s about love. As of late, I let go of a love in my life. It hasn’t been easy, and it probably won’t be okay for a while, but I know in my heart I did the right thing. It hasn’t been good between us for a long time, I just had been the one to face it head-on. I took the step that neither of us wanted to take because we had gotten comfortable. But it wasn’t right anymore. 

I just knew that there was more out there for both of us. A greater love that would better understand us. I have to believe that there is more out there for the two of us. There has to be, otherwise what is there? Love is the thing we are best at doing, though we do have a tendency to screw it up, it is what we mortals do best. Love is what helps us through the bad times. Love is all we have in the end. Material is meaningless; money, cars, houses, clothes, phones, possessions, it all means nothing in the end if you don’t have love surrounding you and consuming you always. I’m not talking about just romantic love. Love from friends, siblings, parents, children, pets. Those who will remember you and take care of you; that’s what is vital in this world. That is what we all need to live for. We live for love. I can’t think of anything better to live for.

Of course, I can’t forget loving ourselves. Loving who we are and who we’ve become over the years. I’m still learning how to do that, the whole loving myself thing. It’s easier said than done for sure. It’s something I have no doubt everyone struggles with as well. That’s why it’s good to be alone sometimes. So you can learn who you are, find yourself.

Anyway, that’s what was playing around in my mind. Like I said, nothing unique, but I just felt like expressing my feelings on the matter. Maybe it will help someone and just remind someone that, as the Beatles once said, love is all we need. 

Thanks for reading all my rambling. I appreciate it more than words can express. Sorry I am not better at being consistent on writing. Wish me luck.

Until next time…

Justine
