Last night I had a lovely time and conversation with my friends/coworkers. We all agreed that love is what leads us all, and sometimes people accept the love they think they deserve (thank you, Stephen Chbosky). And it’s true, we do. We all do. We don’t allow ourselves the good things that God can and will give us cause we think we don’t deserve it- that we’re too far gone. But the lovely premise to that is that we’re not. No matter how far gone you think you may be you’re never too far for love. Love has some pretty big arms and the light it exudes will reach and even overcome the darkness that we all hold in ourselves. Life is too short and sweet to deny ourselves love and the gifts we can hold.
