It's Just There

When you love dance (or painting or boating or tennis) it is just a part of you.  You don’t really have to think about whether you want to do it.  You don’t have to persuade yourself to do it.  You just do it. It’s just there. 

Love is an intrinsic part of you. It drives you to express your deepest, truest self.  Whether it’s your job, your hobby, your family, love for these things propels you along a path.  It leads you.

When you love a person unconditionally, it is not something you learn. You don’t have to think about it or persuade yourself to do it.  It’s just there.

Sometimes you can revel in love.  Sometimes you just have to accept that love is present and there’s nothing you can do about it.  It is irrevocable. It causes you to do and behave in certain ways without question. 

There have been people in my life that I love, and I really wish I didn’t.  Life would be less painful if that love were not there.  However, it is always present.  It’s like the sun.  Sometimes (frequently) you can’t feel it or see it, but it is still eternally there.

The bad news is that love can hurt you. 

The good news is that you can love unconditionally and that love leads you to your truth.

 It’s just there.

  1. I'm finally catching up on your blogs today, Susie..., and you know all too well how much I "get" this one! Knowing that the "pain" ultimately leads me to my truth is why I've learned to accept its presence in my life. And yes..., it's still there in spite of all of the joy this past month. Hmmm.... Excellent blog, as per usual, my dear!
