This post was inspired by my Male Best Friend. He has shown me that when you have unconditional love for someone you can weather any storm that comes your way, regardless of whether you are together as a couple or walking on different paths. I share a love with this man that is beyond a marriage, it is deeper than any love I have had in my life so far, bonded by two incredible children. We have learned that we have a unique connection that we believe if shared, we can make a difference in the world. We are a living example of what life after marriage can be if you truly love someone enough to set them free.
We recently spent the day together and it reminded me of what I am looking for in a partner. I am simply looking for a man who makes me feel I’m home. Think about how you feel when you have been away, living out of a suitcase and you arrive back home. You unpack your bag, relax, get comfortable and you feel at peace with just being there. There is no place like home.
When you meet someone new, I believe if you follow your heart, take your time and trust you’re where you need to be, you will find your way home. Create a history, take chances, risk it all, build trust and strengthen your bond by making memories. When you feel an ease wash over you, you will know there is no other place you need to be.
Love is the most sought after emotion. The feeling of falling in love…magical. The feeling of love for a child…overwhelming. To be loved by someone is powerful enough to bring tears to ones eyes just thinking about it. To love someone unconditionally no matter what kind of love you have is the greatest gift of all. I have experienced all of these in my life and if I am to never fall in love again I am happy to have had love so great its pure essence will last my lifetime. It makes me smile from deep inside when I think of how magical it feels to fall in love. Love doesn’t always last forever but when it washes over you, in that moment it simply doesn’t matter.
We all want to be loved by someone whether it be our parents, kids, partners, brothers, sisters, friends. Love is powerful. Love over time grows if you nurture it. Love heals heart break.
