A Gift of the Heart

If you love someone, let them know.

It’s easy to take our feelings for granted and to assume that the people we care about know how we feel about them. But while those we love are often quite cognizant of our feelings, saying “I love you” is a gift we should give to our loved ones whenever we can. Letting people know you love them is an important part of nurturing any kind of loving relationship. Few people tire of being told they are loved, and saying “I love you” can make a world of difference in someone’s life, take a relationship to a new level, or reaffirm and strengthen a steady bond. Everyone needs to hear the words “I love you.” Three simple words – I – Love – You. When you declare your love for someone you admit to them that you care for them in the most significant way.

It can be difficult to express your love using words, particularly if you grew up around people that never expressed their affection verbally. But you should never be afraid to say “I love you” or worry that doing so will thrust you into a position of excessive vulnerability. It is important to share your feelings with those that matter to you. Part of the fulfillment that comes with loving someone is telling them that you love them. Besides, love exists to be expressed, not withheld.

If you love someone, let them know. Don’t be afraid of the strength of your emotions or worry that your loved one won’t feel the same way. Besides, the words “I love you” are often best said to another without expectation of a return investment. As each one of us is filled with an abundance of love, there is never any worry that you’ll run out of love if your expression of love isn’t said back to you. Saying “I love you” is a gift of the heart sent directly via words to the heart of a recipient. Even though it may not always look that way, love from the heart is an offering that is always unconditional and given without strings attached. That is the true essence of the gift of “I love you.”

Truths about Life…

1002203_716945908350757_882593819_n

It’s very easy to convince somebody of something when they are young, but as people tend to grow older, they start realizing the truths about life themselves. No more does one hope fancifully, no more does one dream idealistically, no more does one expect unconditionally, no more does one desire immeasurably. Growing older, and wiser, ironically robs people of their happiness, simply because there are lesser things to be happy about, fewer experiences to experience for the first time, lower levels of excitement about life in general, and all this because of the many experiences life has shown you over the years, of hurt, of hatred, of being cheated, of being taken for granted, of so much more that eventually changes the very DNA of an individual, that made you, you.

So how should one be happy as you grow older and wiser? It all begins with acceptance, acceptance of one’s position in life, acceptance of what has happened to one in life, acceptance of whatever bad somebody did to you, acceptance of whatever went wrong with you. As you start growing closer to the stage of acceptance, you will naturally feel lighter, and once you feel lighter, you will start feeling younger again This is a new young, this is a new you, its as good as a rebirth within this one, its a different you. Its then about re exploring life from a different perspective, about re living things from a fresh mind, about re kindling friendships and making new ones, about re initiating the process of finding hobbies and passions in life, about re training your mind to be happy again, about re telling your heart to live fully again, about reminding yourself that its not so bad after all, about remembering that age and experience is just a number, about realizing the true potential of whatever you have, about recognizing all that you can still do, about re looking at the way you look at life, about re living your own life.
