Do you believe in love? Are you searching for true love? If so, read on and be inspired to open up your heart to the possibility of finding love this year.

On January 1, 2012, yet again, I found myself in a place where I hoped not to be in the New Year. I was in a see-saw relationship that I wanted out of but didn’t know how to let go of. The best I could do on New Year’s Eve was to tell myself, and God, that 2012 would be the year  in which I would find true love; the man who would commit and be ready for a lifetime with me. And then I left my heart open to the possibility of that happening.

So when in early June last year a certain man sought me out and asked if I would go out with him, I said yes even though I was seeing someone else at the time. I was truthful from the start and let him know that I was seeing someone but that things between us were questionable. That relationship wasn’t progressing. See, for me, this was growth – to admit to myself and to someone else that I was willing to see what could become, while I was still holding on to something/someone else. Usually, I am so focused on what isn’t working and trying to make it work, that I would miss out on new opportunities and something new.

However, this time, when Jay (not his real name) came along, I was ready for something more and so I opened my heart up to the possibilities of what could be by letting go of what I was hoping would be.  I let go so easily and so fast it still baffles me.

It’s the beginning of 2013, and it’s been six months and counting. Jay and I are still on track, getting to know each other as we fall deeper in love. I find such peace in our relationship. Of course, just like every other couple, we do have our moments of intense disagreements and fights, but because we know where we’re headed, we find a way to forge ahead each time.

As we enter the New Year, with all its promises and all that’s in store for you, are you still searching for love with your heart closed to the possibility? My dear goddess, that won’t work. You need to open up your heart and mind to the possibilities – to what’s right in front of you! Look past what you think you want and focus on what’s important instead. A man who is ready and made for you will come to you with all the offerings you want and more, so that there will be no second guessing where you’re both headed. But, you must first be open to accepting what he has to offer – and it must be something deeper than looks and material things. It must be in his truthfulness and certainty of where he’s ready to take you. Hopefully, you will give this a try and share very inspiring stories come December 2013 into the New Year, 2014. Good luck as I leave you with these words of wisdom:

“The less you open your heart to others, the more your heart suffers.” -Deepak Chopra

    I would say to love unconditionally- without any ifs and buts. To go all out and simply Love Hard! I guess we all have to learn to live in the moment, the present, the now- and love from our heart and souls- without worrying about the past or thinking much about the future.

      I completely agree with you Lisha. Most often we allow our past to have a negative effect on our future; which shouldn’t be the case. We must rise above the misfortunes, learn the needed lessons and move on stronger and bolder than before. But, of course, it’s easier said than done.
