Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Sorry this week’s post is a bit late, but here we are with a new piece of artwork & this week’s quote. For all you romantics out there, you’ll enjoy this one.
All you need is love. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again (even if I do sound like a broken record). Love is one of the most powerful emotions in the world. It has the power to keep a person from inflicting harm on themselves, just knowing that someone out there loves them. I remember a couple years ago, when my relationship of 4 years ended…I was shattered. But knowing that my family was still there for me, that they all still loved me, and that Harli still loved me – and the love that grew and filled my heart when my nephew was born…it helped me through the hardest time in my life.
I’ve always firmly believed that love is the glue that holds our world together. It’s due to love that people are able to write beautiful stories and love songs. It’s because of our love for others that we sacrifice things and give so much. Our capability to feel such a beautiful – and admittedly sometimes annoying – emotion is fantastic, and we need to embrace that. We as human beings are able to feel so deeply and so much for other beings that for some we would quickly give up our own lives for them.
So even if you’re in a rough spot in life right now…you’re low on funds, not doing well in school, maybe you just lost your job or you moved to a new city and don’t know anyone around you, just remember that there are still people out there that love you. And if you can find a way to connect to those people (or dogs/cats/birds/whatever floats your boat) then just talking to them or being around them will make you feel so much better, I promise.
But for now, I hope everyone has had a Happy Valentine’s Day – single or not.
