To walk away without leaving it all on the field,
To hold cards in your hand unplayed,
Is a choice to live less out of fear.
It is a choice to suffer the sorrow of a life lived small.
Be true to your heart.
Be true to the moment.
Be bigger than you thought you could.
Go off a cliff. Let your heart get broken. You won’t die. You won’t just live through it, you will live because of it.
The sting of rejection pales in comparison to the dull sorrow of words left unsaid. Dying inside in a moment of raw vulnerable courage is far better than the slow death of walking away from a love not done.
Say, “I’m sorry” if you need to.
Admit you’re terrified.
Find a way to utter the words, “I love you”,
And then say them again, and again, and again.
Drown your fear by drowning in love itself.
Let yourself be suffocated and intoxicated by love so that you can become something bigger than you are.
Die to love to be reborn.
Allow yourself to be willing to hurt for love because that’s what it takes to love fully. Love isn’t safe. The hardest thing in the world to do is love without expectation or projection, in the face of rejection. But it’s worth it because,
Love is everything and it’s everything that holds everything together.
Don’t leave your love unspent.
Spend your love like a madman on a spree who thinks there is no tomorrow because nothing is promised to us except today, not even later today really.
Nothing is promised to us except right now.
Sharing is sexy. If you liked this article, share, comment, or pass it on.
