Red Says: quirky quotable (#16)
I'm kinda busy . . . it's Fleet Week

Finding Heaven. . .

Big2_3 The most poignant lessons I’ve learned in life have come from the relationships I’ve had. All relationships, yes, but most powerfully from my relationships with men.

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.

Well said Red. In most aspects of life, we have to be willing to take risks at times. The rewards can be great.
