Chains in our Lives
As we live our life, it is easy to become cynical and jaded, due to events and circumstances that come into our life. It can be easy to embrace the status quo of life and love, especially when we see so many examples of heartache from friends, family, and strangers.  If we are not careful, we will start living our life based on the expectations and fears of others.

It is easy to immerse ourselves in the fantasy of movies and the ideal of love as we understand it. It is easy to say, I wish that love would happen to me but, it never will.  Have you ever stopped to consider the possibility that you have chained up your heart and your life, so that you can't see and feel happiness and love when it touches you in some small way?

What are the chains in your life, that you have wrapped yourself in, that keep you from experiencing the fullness of love? 

I think it becomes harder to feel love and to give love if you aren't receiving it. Over time you begin to wither. Take a garden, for example. Without water, the ground eventually dries up and becomes barren and hard. When water finally touches its hardened surface, most of it just runs off and doesn't absorb into the soil. Keep feeding the garden water and eventually the ground softens and will once again bloom. To me, love is just like a garden. Neglected it will die.
