i was having a chat with my friend Bree and she made me find some realizations that i should have found long ago… And now I am a strong believer of this: Investing in love is investing in life. Where you invest your love you invest your life.A fulfilling life. And no, I don’t mean rosy and easy, laughter and hugs. No, that’s fiction. Check yourself if your life is like that. According to me, its the ups and downs that make life fulfilling. The break ups that show us where we went wrong and the second chances we give that signify healing. The hands that imprint memories and the lying tongue that reminds us that nobody’s perfect. Then finally death that fills our days with remorse but at the same time reminds us to live everyday like it’s the last. See? Life is hard enough. There is hurt at every turn but once love becomes part of it it all becomes bearable. Ask the women whose husbands batter them on a daily basis yet they can’t leave because they don’t want to be the one to separate her children from the only dad they’ve known.. Faith, love, hope,and all those other things that hard-hearted people pretend to be allergic to, is what makes us to fall in love again after suffering a heart-break. It is the ability to forgive and heal which, according to me, is priceless as opposed to shutting everyone out.. Live. Love. Hurt. Forgive. Heal. That’s how we become better people. Even Joan Gadsby tends to agree..
. To laugh is to risk appearing a fool, To weep is to risk appearing sentimental, To reach out to another is to risk involvement, To love is to risk not being loved in return, To live is to risk dying, To believe is to risk despair, To try is to risk failure, But risks must be taken, Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing, People who Risk nothing, Have nothing. Are nothing, They may avoid suffering and sorrow, But they can’t learn, Feel, change, grow, love, live, Chained to their attitudes they are salves, They have forfeited their freedom, Only person who risks is free:) Joan Gadsby (addiction by prescription,p.147) Embrace life, x. thank you Bridgette.
