Do you believe love exists in a partner? There are so many different types of love but the love I want to speak on is the type shared between you and a significant other. Love is complex. It’s not the typical ‘I love you and you love me’. I can love anyone and receive the same thing back. The key is how to make that love eternal and unique. So many people fall in love but it’s harder to stay in love. Love is just a feeling. The word ‘Love’ is so misused in this day in age, and it creates conflict between true lovers. Instead of understanding and loving the right way, love is twisted to be taught in a way where it is sure to break. The love you seek should be deeper than the surface. Rather than loving the outside and small fragments of the inside, love the mind. Whoever you decide to love, make that love unique. Because if love can be so easily replaced then it won’t mean a thing and someone else can offer the same love you received. I would rather give love than receive it, because if I receive it wrong I won’t want it at all. In order for love to remain strong and everlasting you must keep loving the person you fell for, and remind yourself the things you love about them. Once you get comfortable and you both just love each other then there forms a kind of bond that is more so friendly than it should be. Never get too comfortable, always remind yourself the reasons you love that person. Build and keep building. Do not build a home and never remodel its insides or update it once in a while. Because leaving a house the same for so long, causes the house to slowly rust and break. So I do believe love exists, but I believe that only few know how to keep it existing. Because love is much more than ‘I love you’, it’s all about the levels of floors you decide to conquer and overcome while still managing to be and stay in love.
The greatest title of all is not King or Queen, but Mother. Almost two years ago I was given the best gift I could ever ask for- the gift of life. I carried life for 9 months and I brought my baby into this world with the blessing of God. If I could, I would do it a million times over. When I first got pregnant I remember feeling scared, anxious, happy, excited, and a million more emotions that I could never put into words. I am honored to have been the vessel to bring my son into this world. God chose me and I am forever in His debt. Being a mom is a constant learning experience- from learning how to change diapers, to finding certain tricks to make him sleep easier. In the beginning, I had to search up everything when I wasn’t sure what to do, and if he got sick I would immediately take him to the doctor. Now, my baby is 1 year and 4 months and I’m calmer and handling everything easier! It’s all a learning experience, but I’m still learning new things every day! It’s such a beautiful journey. For all the mothers out there, come to understand what is important in life and what isn’t. Your child needs you and needs to have the best version of you. I am the best version of myself because of my son, I am his role model. He’s my lifeline and the embodiment of my heart.
I always get asked, “How are you so strong and positive?” My response always varies but relatively it’s the same message. I think every being has strength but some don’t need to use it. The people who have to use their strength and own it are the ones who have been hurt before or put through difficult times. Every person has their own struggles and battles, but it’s how you handle them that really matters. I think addressing whatever it is you’re going through and acknowledging it is how to be strong. Don’t avoid things. Face them head on. I am strong because of the things that have gone on in my life. I’ve learned from them and I pray they don’t happen again. Being strong can be very hard at times but never forget who you are and how amazing of a human you are. Always look at the positives in your life. Now, why am I so positive? I’ll tell you. I used to be such a negative person. All I saw- for the most part- were the bad things in my life. I was so pessimistic. But I changed for the better and now I make it my goal to be happier every day. What really made me so positive was telling myself that no matter what happens, everything has beauty. Even if something is bad or negative, I always look for the beauty in it. If I’m having a bad day, I look at the positive things that happened and I let them outweigh all the negatives. Why should I get bothered by things when life is so short to be bothered by anything? I would much rather enjoy being on this beautiful earth than ever let a negative thought run through my mind again. Being strong and positive is a choice. Choose to be happy. No matter what comes your way, always choose happiness.
