So it's that time of year again! Say it with me out loud- February! Yes, the month dedicated to love. Love, love, love! It's the topic a lot of people try to avoid altogether. The topic of love often evokes dynamic emotions in most individuals. Those emotions can lead to memories that capture the very best and worst of relationships. Without question, love is truly amazing! Love mishandled can also leave participants with mixed feelings about relationships, people, and even life.
Let me frank. Misguided love has clearly left some men and women uneasy about approaching love again. A distrusting attitude along with lack of closure can eventually lead to bitterness. Most people have had a minimum taste of bitterness before and yet pushed through it. That's just it! Love is conquered at some point and sometimes released. Either way, as human beings we have to find a way to achieve peace and closure with any situation in life. This is not always easy but it is always necessary for balance.
So I hope your February is kind, sweet, and full of love. I am not advocating for you to seek love in another person just because it's February. Hardly! I am not encouraging you to go buy up all of the delicious candy at the store. No way...at least seek the candy on sale first. Wink! I wish for us all to have a love for life and progress. This notion can be achieved alone or with fellowship. Love is many things to many people but one fact shall always remain. Love itself will never perish. It somehow keeps thriving through it all- if we are on aboard or not!
