Because the greatest insights, the most challenging struggles and the most impassioned encounters have been in my romances. It’s the matters of the heart that have impacted me most deeply.
I am the truest of true, die-hard, hopeless romantic.
I believe that love conquers all and that love is an indefinable, beautiful magic that lives in everyone.
I believe that love crosses all boundaries – time
and space. And that it is a force that cannot be contained. . .
I also believe that too often we don’t allow love to BE -- we try to manipulate it or cover it or something -- because it is so powerful we're afraid it can consume us.
But, would that really be so bad? What are we afraid of?
I am determined not to be . . . afraid.
I have a (wide) open heart, and because of this, many times I get hurt – but I never stop believing. My open-hearted nature is one quality which I have been blessed with. A quality that I wouldn’t change. Even if I could. It allows me to feel truly alive and experience life profoundly.
I think this is why my life is so rich. Because I believe in love and I take risks over and over again. Not making the same mistakes – but always being willing to open myself up to the possibility of heartbreak.
Because in taking that risk . . .I just might find heaven.
