As a holistic counselor and coach, exploring love is paramount. So often when a client comes in we spend a lot of time talking about what love is not and the havoc it wreaks, so when I came across this quote from Ann Landers I found it to be very refreshing.
“Love is friendship that has caught fire.
sharing and forgiving.
loyalty through good and bad times.
It settles for less than perfection and
makes allowances for human weaknesses.
Love is content with the present,
it hopes for the future,
and it doesn't brood over the past.
the day-in and day-out chronicle
of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments,
big victories and working toward common goals.
If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that are missing.
If you don't have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it's not enough.”
Friends in this Love,
