We Love To Love

"Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love." ~ LEO BUSCAGLIA

I had a lovely day at church today, which is always based on loving each other.  Really loving each other and not looking for anything in return. For when we truly love each other, love comes back to us in ways we could never comprehend.  When we love and look for it in return, we become disillusioned, since it rarely comes to us the way we give it out.

As everyone who knows me or reads my blog knows that I have always desired to have one true love, someone to be there for me and me there for him.  It hasn't worked out that way for me and I became disillusioned... I felt as if God, the universe and the world had let me down.  When in reality, I had that love all along... I just refused to see it since it wasn't in the package I had dreamed it would be. It came as friendship love. 

The quote above by Leo Buscaglia reminded me that I need to stop looking for my love and just love everyone and not look for what I think I deserve.  My Heavenly Father knows my heart and he wants me to be happy; the true way to happiness is to lose myself in love and service. 

This last time that I had the opportunity and blessing to love, I nearly let it destroy me... because I wanted it my way.  By doing this, I nearly destroyed what I loved, I am still working on fixing it, hoping he will see that I was afraid, afraid that no one would love me.  I was wrong, I needed first to love myself and second to know that love comes in ways we don't always see right away.

"The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you.  Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision.  So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can." ~ Neil Gaiman

  1. Launna so true and powerful your message today. Love to Love and not be loved in return. Also we are loved just not always in the way we expect. I so can relate to that. Thank you. Behind The Smile :-)

  2. You are so welcome Behind the Smile. I really felt the need to write this one... I usually don't post twice in one day but I couldn't wait to post this until the morning:)

  3. Giving love unconditionally without any expectations of reciprocation isn't always easy, but it really is the only way to offer love. Meaningful post today, Launna.

  4. Thank you Daisy, my 'D' inspired me. I felt prompted to tell him I loved him and not expecting it in return. It felt good and it made me smile inside and out:).

  5. Nice color choice on the blog. It is really easy on my eyes and I have bad eyes too so that's a really big compliment lol

  6. Thank you Anonymous, that's very nice of you to say;)
