Rise and look around you, and you'll see who you are – and so again I start by using a few words from a song I’ve heard them more times than I can remember and still I hear them in a new way every time…..
Just listen to it on a clear day – right now, in the middle of the night, I believe that it is a clear day to me. I’ve just hung up talking to my very special someone, who now lives abroad. And against all odds it seems to me as if our relationship has evolved to something more intense, deeper and much better than I could have believed. So right now, it IS a clear day to me, since I see things so much clearer now than I did just a few weeks ago.
This alpha male, so far from any man I’ve had in my life before, has reached into depths in me that I never knew existed. He has given me tranquillity and peace – or maybe, he has just given me the space to realize that I’ve had it in me all the time….
More than anyone I’ve met before, this person has turned out to be more like my father, than I ever thought possible. He has the same values and the same strong belief in what he does. Like my father, he is not a man of many words when it comes to feelings, but still for the first time ever someone has reached me without words….. When I say how I feel, he doesn’t repeat what I say, but simply by being him he shows me how he feels. If I tell him, how good he looks, he doesn’t say that I’m beautiful, but by the tone of his voice or the look in his eyes, the way his hands touch my arm or just the way he leans against me sitting next to me, by such a gesture he can make me feel in every fibre of my body how he feels.
And finally I’ve seen the light, so to speak. I don’t want him, or any of my friends or family to repeat me when I say something nice or give a compliment – I want everyone to be themselves and let their feelings show in their own way, no matter if it is by gestures or by words. Only then can it be real and honest – and at the end of the day, isn’t that what we all want?
Rise and look around you, and you’ll see who you are – well, need I explain?? From the second, this person entered my life he has given me the space to be me, taken me for who and what I am in good as well as bad and never tried to force any of his ideas or beliefs on me. And by doing so, he has given me the power to see into places in me that I’ve never entered before. Not analysing or in any way trying to change what I’ve found, but looking into the mirror and for the first time seeing the real me.
And guess what?? I like what I see!!!! Not that I believe I’m perfect, but I’m me with all the flaws and cracks that have formed me during my way through life, I’m me with all the love and tenderness I give and receive, and all the people I have in my life. Yes, I’m me, but without you I would be no one…..
Remember that love also includes respect and that respect also means to let people around you be who they are. There are so many different people out there, and sometimes we try to form the people we meet to be someone we want, but you should instead look for the one who reaches into you and give you that feeling of satisfaction and happiness just by being them. I know that sometimes it can be confusing to meet someone who is close to what we believe is right, but if you open yourself, even though it will mean putting your feelings out there, I firmly believe, that you will know when the right one has come into your life.
Some people call it soul mate, but I just believe that it is the right person, at the right place, at the right time. And I don’t believe there’s only one right person, but during our lives we meet several people, who will match us perfectly, but we’re not always ready for them, when they come into our lives.
I’ve been lucky and met at least one, and no matter what tomorrow brings, this clear day has helped me realize that what I got yesterday, today and what will come tomorrow can be good or bad, but whatever happens, no one can take away the good I’ve had so far. Therefore, it is important that you give yourself the opportunity to enjoy the moment you’re in and live out the feelings you have. There are no promises as to what happens tomorrow, but if you are open and positive, I’m convinced that you will meet openness and positivity and thus be happy and content in your life…..!
And so, I give you L-O-V-E!
Hugs & kisses
