I turned on my ipod today and the first song that came on was Collide by Howie Day. Beautiful song, I watch So You Think You Can Dance, and a few seasons ago two contestants danced wonderfully to this song. Ever since then I have had this fantasy that I danced with the love of my life and we got so wrapped up into each other and the song that we were in our own little world. I have not found the love of my life yet but that is the kind of love I so badly yearn for.
So many of us fear that we will never be loved, at least I know I do. But really, I need to step back and take a look at the people who surround me. I have some great friends, I have met some great people, and I know there are people out there that love me. You should do the same, just take a minute to think about it, SOMEONE out there loves you. Even if you don't love yourself sometimes.
And if you can't think of anyone that loves you, I love you.
I love everyone, everyone is beautiful, and I hope someday you can see that within yourself.
