There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize love like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise. - Emery Allen
That quote just speaks to me. Maybe because I have been single for such a long time and I have truly learned that you don't need a partner to find happiness, or to really LIVE and appreciate life at it's finest. Taking time to love and really get to know WHO YOU ARE AT YOUR INNER CORE, only puts in you in a better position to welcome love into your life when it's right...or you may decide to just always remain happy on your own. Always follow your heart. Don't ever settle for anything less than a beautiful life. Do one thing each day that excites you.
Love - Deb xoxo
