“What if you didn’t run? This one time. What if you stayed, and let love overtake you?”
-Dr. Joshua Bennett
You know when something seems to good to be true and you just feel like someone is going to come wake you up from this wonderful dream? Honestly that is how I feel right now. My life is gradually coming together piece by piece. I felt like much of my life was going right but one thing was missing and that was to find someone.
As I told you all I went out on a date with this guy. I was scared of all the possibilities that could go wrong, because this hasn’t been my first rodeo haha. But unlike what I thought it couldn’t have been more perfect! I took a chance by putting myself out there and I couldn’t be more happier with that decision!
I think I’m finally ready to let someone in my life again and I think he feels that way too. I will update you guys more on what happens, but I can honestly say I feel really good about this one.
What I want you all to get out of this message is to not be afraid to let joy into your life. I’ve been hurt many times in my life. (A lot by guys too) But the then is you can’t just let the hurt you went through cause you to harden yourself from feeling happy again. This is going to sound cheesy you guys, but you know the Fat Albert movie? Well there’s something he says in the movie that makes so much sense. It went somewhat like this “don’t let the fear keep you from loving someone, because loving someone is great.”
This quote can be applied to more than just romantic relationships. It can be applied to friend/ family relationships, your dreams, your goals, …basically anything. The point is don’t let the fear of getting hurt by anything stop you from doing things you want to do. We are going to get hurt regardless in this world so you might as well just do things you want anyway.
Open your heart to great adventures! You never know what will come your way when you are just open to let stuff in. Don’t be afraid of the outcome. Be afraid of never going after the things you want.
Until tomorrow my loves,
