Daily Dose for the Mind

If you look for love, in pursuit of what it can give you, it will hide itself. If you ask love to arrive because you are now ready, it will skip your door. Love is like an uninvited guest. Love will come when it wants to. Love will leave when you ask more of it. If you attempt to find a love that meets certain criteria, your new love may also make certain demands of you. Drop your demands quickly when love knocks on your door.

Love is warm and freeing. It is innocent, like a child without a hidden agenda. We can determine how close we are to someone by asking, Can I act like a little kid in front of that person? When we love someone, we feel like a little kid in our heart.

To cook something delicious, you need time for the ingredients to marinate. To build a lasting relationship, you need time for trust to develop. When you are dating, temper your enthusiasm. You may ask, “What is wrong with expressing my honest feelings? Why can’t I give her a gift and tell her I love her? Your words and gifts will mean more to her when she is ready. Love her, not your feelings.

    Beautiful…I love the ending..love her not your feelings…we often love ourselves more in thinking we are loving the other person. What’s in it for us mindset never goes away.

      I agree. When you practice self-love, you become more confident and accepting of yourself. When you achieve that feeling you are able to go into relationships with a strong sense of self. The way you treat yourself sets the standards for others, so approaching a relationship with a strong sense of self is the best way to go.
