so much for love

Every new day brings with it thoughts and feelings that seem so very much more appealing about how we can and should engage with people in our lives, it is at the heart of our happiness and a declaration of our potential success in life.

“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” ~ Mark Twain

Being better prepared for and more aware of a potential meeting with that special someone who will help you turn the corner and best appreciate all that you are, may be just a moment away. Having shelved the idea that keeping a bag of CZ engagement rings on hand in preparation to entice or seduce something truly magical, I have now modified my strategy to include an open hand of assistance and kindness.

A walk down the aisle, after all, does not guarantee happiness or longevity for that matter, a feeling that this connection is indeed the one, a keeper, must be challenged yet admired for all the true potential, so keep your eyes, ears and heart open for just about anything!

To understand better the potential of all things wonderful requires a transition from the “maybe” mindset and must  emerge from the umbrage to observe only the positiveness associated with “knowing.” It may require a solemn look back and disconnect from the past and that which we cannot change.

Write down all that you dislike about what has happened before on a piece of paper, say a prayer for forgiveness and burn it. This allows for a new freedom to have an understanding that our past does not delegate our future. From this day forward as the saying goes…

To remove oneself from the stage of simply wanting more and move yourself to the back stage of life performances allows for a different view of the possibilities as well. Your stance changes, you are more at ease and you express a more healthy and happy being who is more in sync with the flow of life. I have seen it and I have felt it, but one must remember that it is not a simply flip of a switch and whoosh you are done, it is a day in and day out improved view and a process of being truly thankful.

“Real friendship or love is not manufactured or achieved by an act of will or intention. Friendship is always an act of recognition.” ~ John O’Donohue

I have made some amazing friends since moving from my home town of nearly fifty years and I tend to share much more of myself with regards to life awareness in an aggregate of possibilities. It truly did take a leap of faith in order to uncover the resistance held on to for what ever reason. Still wondering why that is at times, but less with each day for the future is quite bright and apparently “the game is on.”

There is something to be said about moving onward and upward. The opportunities seem so much more endless and the reasons behind your desire to learn and grow are all about wanting or needing to be more involved. Especially with those who seek recognition for and active participation of aesthetic values.  The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well here and I feel it growing more within myself as I meet, greet and collaborate with like minds and spirits.

“Admiration for a quality or an art can be so strong that it deters us from striving to possess it.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Being open, willing and able to participate seems easier now and I can thank a select few who I have had the pleasure to come in contact with a new and better view of a potential of thoughts and energies. Funny how one’s life path can lead us to friendships and business connections simply because we are open and appreciative. A shift in thinking has brought this all to fruition, plus perhaps an affinity for a sharing of yourself with someone who is walking a similar path of understanding.

It only takes one special person to turn things around and allow you both to see things differently, more completely and even more admirably. I am so very fortunate to have met such good friends and comrades in my new life here in the farther south of Southern California. It has been an amazing journey thus far and I am so very excited about the possibilities of tomorrow. Thank you all…

  1. Interesting thoughts about love, Ed. I like this in particular “There is something to be said about moving onward and upward. The opportunities seem so much more endless and the reasons behind your desire to learn and grow are all about wanting or needing to be more involved.” — this is always a good attitude to finding more of it.
