This month we’re on a freedom journey. We’re learning to find and enjoy freedom in our lives. Today we’re talking about living and loving not just our lives but ourselves. We live in an amazing world-a world where we can try different things, meet different people and all love different things. Some of us come together over our loves, like those at Comic-Con recently, and some of us prefer to enjoy our love in private. Whether you enjoy connecting with others or love in private, today I hope you’ll learn to live and love.
Life is most enjoyable when you’re loving what you do, who you’re with and where you are. You may still be trying to find the things and people you love, so I encourage you to not give up. It’s totally worth the whole journey and you deserve to enjoy your life.
Don’t be ashamed by what you love. It’s natural to feel a bit embarrassed if you like something a little strange, like a different food combination. But at the end of the day, as we’ve said many times, it’s not their happiness that really matters, it’s yours.
While that may be true, finding your love in life will help to strengthen your relationships, or help you find the right ones. If you’ve been with someone because of a common love, that’s an important bond between you, and as you grow together you’ll find other common loves. If you discover your love for painting and open an art studio, you’ll connect with others in the art world and find your journey supported.
Life is a journey. What you love now you may not love in 5 years. What you love now may last a lifetime though. The beauty of life is that you have the ability to change and move as life leads. I encourage you to spend time today with the people and things you love.
