Be open to love!
Sometimes when we go through some major crisis, changes whether it be in a relationship or your life, the job you hate or get caught in the routine, the comfort zone, we forget how to live and how to love. I believe that when things don't feel or go right, it means it's time for a change. Changes are good! It use to scare me when I felt a change coming. Right away I felt I was being punished for something, something I couldn't understand. Afraid of the uncertainty of the future. Accepting that change is a part of life. To be open to love, a new life, a new me and shedding the old and embracing the new. And as scary as change can be, there is always a beautiful reward waiting on the other side.

Swirling in love!

Swirling in love!

I love to think of us as swirling in love because even though we never met I feel as though we already have and that in itself says a lot me. Because we all need each other. We are never alone. when we think we are alone we are really not, It is a state of mind. I love people, as complicated as we all are at times we also have the magic the beauty, the compassion, the support, to make each other smile. Life and friendship is to not take for granted but to embrace what brings us together.
