Times are hard. We only need to read the news or talk to our friends to hear the tales of woe.
The things people are enduring are not the run of the mill type of worries. People are losing their homes, their jobs, the lifestyles that they have become familiar with, and much much much more.
So what do we do when our lives seem to be occurring without our guidance? Who’s in charge here? And when is the other shoe gonna drop?
It’s at this time with struggle being a part of every day that we have to look at staying “in love” with the life we have. It may not be the life we thought we were going to have at this point and time, but it is the life that we have at the present moment.
So how do we love the struggle and the hardship? I don’t say it’s easy. I only say that you have to look at why you find yourself here at this point in time. More than just a bad economy this time is a world of correction. Everyone is going through the correction.
Loving what you got is important because whether you know it or not this life is teaching you something. Whatever struggle you are having is teaching you something. The key is not to get stuck in the “why” but decide to look what you have been learning in this place.
It’s in the lessons of love that we truly understand what love is. With the struggles, changes, twists, and turns we are having to look at not only our life and where it is going but how we react to the changes. Are you one that is able to say, “Hey, I don’t understand why this is happening but I believe I am gonna learn something” and flow with the life?
Because that is what loving something is all about. You may not understand, but you care and so you wish to love it and strive to understand the lessons wrapped around it. That is what love is.
Loving your life right now is a matter of choice. Learning the lessons this life is trying to teach you is up to you. Striving to grow and open yourself to anything being possible is part of this process.
Like the song says “Love the one you’re with” that is what you do now “Love the life you have.”
