“To risk loving, knowing that loss is inevitable, I think, is the single most important challenge of our lives.”
I read this quote this morning and it has been sitting with me… I believe that I am on this planet to be as unconditionally loving as I can be. Not only to myself but to others. Once we are able to master this we can be and do anything. Set healthy boundaries, be profoundly present, and love, simply love. But here is my thought for you… loss, loss as in a break-up. Do we actually lose that person? Or do we lose their presence in our present life? How are we entering the relationships in are lives? Even the simply social ones. What are our motives? How wonderful would it be if we could truly be present with the time we are allotted. A day, week, month, year or decade. Loss is inevitable… If we stay in the present and cherish all that we have, what we have is a gift for what ever time we are given. So my question is how would you like to enter your relationships? What kind of presence would you like to have?
