Everyone dreams of finding sweet love. For many of us, being in a relationship that is not suitable for us frustrates that vision. We may have fallen into patterns over the years that have squeezed the sweetness out of our relationship and need to work hard and creating some new habits that will support love’s return. Or perhaps we are in a relationship where we are truly mismatched and have been too afraid to leave it.
Whether it is letting go of a relationship to make space for a beautiful, fulfilling one to emerge, or digging in to transform the one we have, we are wise if we never give up hope.
It’s never too late to reach for our dream.
If this woman in her seventies could do it, it is an experience that is available to more of us if we believe and don’t give up hope. She didn’t passively wait for love to come to her.
She was young in spirit, followed her intuition, took some risks, was willing to follow her own inner voice in the face of discouragement and active resistance by those who were dear to her, and reached out to get support at a critical choice point.
She was brave to risk, and was rewarded for her courage. We can learn a lot from this older woman about going after what we truly desire.
And I know for sure that it’s never too late.
