Greatest gift - love and life

2016-02-03 06:00

SOMETIMES we so want a person we love to meet all our needs and/or desires. The world tells us they must meet our love language and we can’t be happy if our emotional needs are not met. We expect people to live up to standards in our heads and if they fail or can’t fulfil them, we become angry, hurt or sad.

We expect gifts on Valentine’s Day, etc., and we can’t accept it if they forget or are busy. Now this is not a pass for men to be unromantic, but ladies, you must not get so emotionally tied to the day that you forget the person is in your life, you blessed to be together. The fact that you have each other, you can always do special things and that is not tied to a day.

You have someone who has stuck with you through hell and high water, through trials and tribulations, who never gave up on you. You have years together. Make memories together that are eternal, time is short and life is a memory.

Don’t let trivial things separate you and your love. Focus on the one above and your time with each other. Share ideas, thoughts and dreams, and motivate one another to achieve them. Build one another in this world we pass through. Make your journey an incredible one.

Don’t hold onto the past, celebrate the present and look to the future. Remember those in need, the ones who have lost love and lives who wish for but a moment with their loved one. Hold each other, treasure every moment you have together.

The world an illusion and the reality is your love, the anchor in a lonely world. Have an amazing Valentine’s Day - remember you have the greatest gifts - love and life.
