Found love by way of lost love

Everyone in ours lives happen for a reason… I truly enjoyed reading this post and a lot of it really touched base with me.. I wanted to share it with others I thought may appreciate it’s message. Well written and honest.

less talking, more writing.

Not every person that you are drawn to is meant to stay in your life. Some people are brought into your life to open up your mind and heart to other parts of life and to…other people. Some will even cause you to edit your heart a little more.

But back to the Buddhist thought and my addition. Neal Donald Walsh wrote “Enjoy everything, need nothing”. And the expansion to this is:
    Expect nothing, accept everything; Enjoy everything, need nothing.
    If you can do this (and I don’t know anyone fully capable of this), you are master of life.
