Chapter 2 - Falling In Love

Chapter 2 - Falling In Love

Falling in love is an awesome feeling.  I’ve been there before.  There’s a lot of excitement when you are first falling in love.  A lot of people want it and crave it.  Just imagine how many love songs, love movies and other topics of love that’s out there.  It’s one of the most talked about topics.  The feeling of knowing that you can have a potential life mate to create a life with can seem very fulfilling.

There were several questions that I’ve had when I fell in love in the past.  Is what I’m feeling real?  Is this truly falling in love, or is this just the rush and excitement from meeting someone new where there is mutual attraction?  Then the little birdy whispers in my ear and says, is this going to be something that works or will I get hurt? 

Different people react to the fear of falling in love in different ways.  Some people ignore it and go full steam ahead.  Others come across as giving mixed signals because their heart is fighting their head.  The heart is saying, give this a shot.  But the head is saying, run, run, run.

I don’t believe in letting fear rule the heart.  At the same time, I do believe that learning from past experiences can help us make stronger decisions in the future.  If you’re experiencing falling in love at this moment, my advice to you is to enjoy it.  Take it one moment and one day at a time.  Pay attention to the signs and clues over time.

If your mind, your gut feeling and the practical elements are in alignment with your heart, then it’s most likely a good situation for you.  On the other hand, if something doesn’t feel right, then just make sure that you pay attention to any red flags. This will help you decide if you need to continue or exit the situation. These are some thoughts on Falling in Love.

Imagining Love

Imagining Love

I try to imagine real love
What is it like? How will it come?
Will I feel butterflies?
Or is that a myth and a lie?

What if love sneaks up on me?
Before I know it, I’ll have a family
Will it catch me by total surprise?
Am I ready to be satisfied?

What if love comes in a different way?
If it comes overnight, what will I say?
I’m imagining this day in my dreams
Until I see it, finding real love is a mystery

I don’t know how this will happen
I’ll try each day to take some action
If I focus on making me a better me
Then attracting true love will be a reality

Until that happens I have imagination
I can picture true love through many stages
I can see us spending time on the beach
We’ll hold hands until the sun retreats

I’ll hold you in my arms as the moonlight shine down
I’ll be your heat when the cool breeze comes around
We’ll be happy as we’re having all this fun
We’ll fall asleep together until the morning sun

This is how I imagine a day with my true love
Come to me now; embrace me with your hug
I know that this time is coming near

Maybe true love will happen this year
