Hey guys! Welcome back. Happy Valentine’s Day! This is a day of love. It’s not particularly my favorite of all the holidays, but I can still appreciate the sentiment of it. What I wanted to talk about to today is the idea of love and how to find it. I know some people if you want love, stop searching for it. In a way I do agree with that statement. I think if you want true, lasting love, you have to stop looking for it. But I don’t think that means you should stop trying.

What I mean by that is that you have to put some effort in to get the love you want. Once someone comes your way or you find someone that you would like to get to know, you have to try. It will never work if you have the mindset of never trying because you think what is meant to be will just work itself out. You have to give something your all to get the best results out of something. So while you are out living your life, keep your heart open. Don’t be afraid of getting hurt because it’s just a learning experience.

One important thing I think you have to do if you want love is to figure out what it means to you. What are you looking for exactly? Once you know that it will be easier to open your heart up to the right person. You will know what you want and need and you will be able to determine if that person meets those requirements. If not, you are saving yourself from potential heartache.

Recognize your value. Know that you are worthy of great love and you deserve someone who sees your worth. Search for the right kind of person. Find someone who sees the best in you and loves even the worst of you. Because at the end of the day, we all deserve to be with someone who treats us like they understand our worth and value and we don’t deserve someone who treats us like we are less than what we are.

You can’t control how and when love will come your way. It happens when it happens. But remember that ultimately you have to keep trying. Don’t give up when things get tough. Don’t sell yourself short because things aren’t perfect. No real relationship ever is perfect. You have to let go of the expectation that everything will be perfect: the person, the timing, the circumstance. You can’t control those things. You just have to let it be and trust when the time comes, you will ready.

Love yourself and keep your eyes open. You will be more open to love from someone else if you are able to first love yourself. If you want the love that you deserve, you must be open to it. You can’t seclude yourself and never give anyone a chance. It will never work that way. Stay open and trust the process. If you want love, never stop trying. You will thank yourself later.
