Love Obeys Intentions

“Love does not obey our expectations; it obeys our intentions.”

Lloyd Strom

What we want rarely comes to us just by virtue of hoping and expecting. Wishing for good things isn’t the same as creating them. No amount of dreaming can take the place of proactive choice.
If we want to experience life with love and passion we have to create it that way.
We have to open our hearts to other people knowing they may not open up in return; give what we can when we can knowing it may not always be reciprocated; go after our dreams knowing sometimes we may fail; and through all the uncertainty, nurture a love for ourselves that doesn’t depend on our conditions.
