This years theme..."Simply Love"

So many of us carry a lot more below the surface when it comes to relationships than can be seen at first glance. We all want to find that spark that leads to a flame. We want to believe there is that special person or feeling out there for us. Unfortunately, we drag our past hurts, failures, heartbreaks and letdowns with us. We often go from wide-eyed, wish upon a star faith to hardened battle worn seasoned veterans. We're waiting and praying for true love but we are subconsciously doing everything we can to sabotage it from happening because we have started to lose hope that true love exists or could ever exist for us.

Most of us are looking for unconditional love but we are so self-conscious that even if we found this, we would have a nearly impossible time accepting it as truth. It's hard to accept love from someone else when many of us don't truly value or love ourselves. We have trouble seeing what someone else values in us when we can't see this in ourselves. Simply love is about that war of a balancing act that goes on. You think you have love but you start to throw on the brakes when things start to pick up because of past fears creeping up. On one hand, you know love can't be controlled and needs space and freedom to grow. On the other hand, you fear that completely giving your heart and self to someone else puts you in a vulnerable exposed state where you have to let your walls down.

"Pain only wants to stay, Love can get away." These two lines from "Simply Love" sum up this feeling. Pain, fear and doubt are happy to keep you where you are. You can play safe and not take any chances with Love but you are limiting what your heart will experience. None of us want to feel pain or look stupid when we give our all to someone else and they don't reciprocate. But to truly experience love we have to abandon the restraints of fear and hurt and take a chance. If we fall, get back up and believe again. "If you never jump, you'll never take flight. If you never reach, you'll never touch the light you used to hold."

Only once we move past our fear of the emotion we will truly allow ourselves to find "simply love this time."
