Many times, we think finding true love will guarantee us a fairy-tale ending. But this is only the beginning of a long and winding, even sometimes, difficult road to happiness and fulfillment. Falling in love is a moment in our lives which can suddenly make our world a beautiful place to live in. Having someone to love and someone who will love us back will give our life more meaning and essence — reason enough to believe that life is indeed worth living!
But before we begin this journey, there is that period of searching…of waiting…of hoping…
This is a difficult reality we sometimes need to face in our effort to discover true love. The thing is, we often focus too much on reaching our ultimate destination — a life with the one we are destined to be – that we tend to forget how to prepare and to appreciate the actual journey of searching, and waiting for our one true love.
It took me 24 years to find true love. I would constantly give God a deadline, but He kept on telling me to wait. On the other hand, it was during this period of waiting that I learned to discover more about my life. I found myself falling in love everyday — with God, with myself, with the life I was living.
It was then that true love finally came knocking at my door. The long wait was finally over and it was definitely worth it! I married my one true love.
One important aspect in finding true love is to fill our lives with love, peace, and happiness. When all these are evident in how we live our lives, true love will eventually find us.
So go ahead… learn to love life!
Prepare yourself to find your one true love by learning to love yourself first. Get to know yourself more, discover your inner strengths and passion. Pursue the things you dream of doing. Pamper yourself. Guard your heart, enrich your mind, purify your soul.
Love the idea of loving
Love is a gift from God — not just the person. The right person is only the vessel through which God’s love will flow. To love or the act of loving is the real gift.
As cliché as it may sound, to love God with all your heart, soul and mind, will rain blessings on your life. Love God above all things and the rest will fall into place.
Love to love
Spread love to the people in your life — family, friends, co-workers. A simple act of kindness will make a lot of difference in the lives of others. Opening yourself to loving others will teach you to be selfless and expose you to different situations and experiences in order to learn and grow more as a person.
Love the life you live
Focus on your blessings rather than on the things that are not going well in your life. Instead of feeling bad about not having someone in your life, be thankful for your great job and wonderful family. Learning to be fulfilled and happy as an individual will make it easier to achieve a fulfilled and happy relationship as well.
Deciding to love life will help us appreciate the “waiting” even more. The more we love, the better our life will turn out for us to share it with that one person we are destined to spend the rest of our life with. The longer we wait, the more we will cherish our one true love in the manner that he / she deserves. The more we hope, the greater the opportunity for God’s plan to work not only in our lives, but also in the life of the person meant for us.
