Love is more than a choice, it is a state and way of being. When you become love, you are whole. We all come into this world as love, as we grow and learn, many of us lose pieces of that wholeness, that fullness of being in and of love because of what we’re taught, the things that influence us, and eventually the things and people we let influence us. And that’s okay, that’s life, it happens to us all. It’s just that we have to find our way back to where we started.
As kids and children, we are always having a good time, enjoying ourselves and the things and people around us, having fun, and being ourselves. We accept ourselves the way we are and everyone around us as they are. Kids are truthful and honest, for the most part anyway. When we are kids, we are whole, we are full of love, happiness, excitement, everything we need. That’s why I believe in the saying “don’t grow up, it’s a trap”. Adults teach us how to grow up, they teach us eveything we know. The problem with that is that many adults don’t know happiness like they should because they were taught and brought up to fit into a box that their parents made for them. Most adults lose their sense of fun, happiness, love, adventure, hope, their sense of life, things essential to being truly alive and free. Well, I think it’s time to change that.
It is more than okay to be and do what you want. Not what your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, god-parents, or any other person thinks you should do. They don’t know all of what makes you happy, they don’t know what all lights that beautiful fire inside of you. Follow your heart. Follow your dreams. As long as you have breath in you, you have the chance to be yourself, to live the life you want for yourself. Mature, don’t grow up. Growing up means ignoring the things that make you you and giving in to the system that was made to keep you down and controlled. Don’t give in. Becoming mature means that you learn the lessons life has for you, you use those lessons to help better yourself and others as you go through life, and you still keep that same enthusiasm and love for life as you did when you were a kid.
You have every right and reason to be open and free. Be yourself. Love yourself. Live your life. Love your life. Love life. Love. It’s time to take your life into your own hands.
