Dear Love,

Dear Love,
   I wanted to tell you how much you mean to me every day and how much I appreciate having you in my life. Today of all days though I feel extra special and I owe it all to you.

I woke up with a sense of peace and gratitude only you can bring me. I woke up with a sense of purpose and pride only you have taught me. I woke up with only you on my mind because you make my heart smile so wide.

You taught me how to see the good in my worst times. You taught me how to learn from my mistakes. You took the time and made the efforts to heal my soul. You look at me and see Love look at you back.

Having you in my life has allowed me to continue to grow and to not let my short comings be my only offerings in life. You have made me see that anything is possible with nourishment and kindness. You have allowed me to remain flexible yet strong in the toughest of storms. In moments when I feel I stand alone, I close my eyes and you are there.

You have bought amazing people into my life who have given me so much but you have also taken away some I'd thought would be around forever. I realize now that even those times you were showing me love.

Dear Love,
   Thank you for existing as one of the many emotions I feel but the one that I lean on the most.

Always stress free xo

  3. Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!

    1. Square space is a wonderful platform. Cost is reasonable and you have lots of variety and control.
