“Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.” – Brene Brown
How sweet it feels to be connected. Connection at many levels … loving feelings towards comrades … deeper love held toward close friends … and the strongest feelings of love held towards those whose hearts are joined beyond understanding.
I’m learning to move through life from a place of kindness and love. As I do, I experience these connections. Each connection harmonizes with my inner song … the song that reflects “me”. The song is heard at many volumes. And the deeper the connection the stronger the harmony … the sweeter the feeling brought from the synchronization between beings.
For years I believed I was a “loner” … not meant to be engaged in groups or with others … more comfortable alone and within myself. And though moments of quite aloneness are stilled valued and many times needed, my true core now strongly desires connecting at a deep level. More and more it is revealed … I am a creature of connection … seeking connection at many levels and in many ways. And now I seek … hunt for opportunities to connect … connect with my tribe and team, connect with groups I lead or help, connect with close friends, and connect within my love relationship.
Connection brings feelings … sweet feelings … feelings that resonate within me, telling me it is me and that this is my path. So I will continue to create … seek … and feel connections, and each day will become richer for having made that discovery and for choosing to live my life in the harmony of connection.
