The Game of Love

We each desire to love and be loved, but it isn’t always so easy to obtain what we desire. There is no one roadmap, but many that show us different ways of how to go about finding and being in a relationship.  We see a behavior and we repeat the behavior. We keep trying to repeat the same patterns over and over again, and when they don’t work we want to know why. What we forget is that each person and each relationship is different, and although there can be some similarities no two people or relationships can ever be alike. 

We want to believe that there is this one magical solution for a successful relationship, but there isn’t. We want finding someone to be easy, and we want the relationship to be easy.  But, love is no different than the playing your favorite sport.  To be good at it or to get to the play-off’s it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and focus. 

Love is no different than Basketball, you can’t win the game by yourself. If you have ever played a sport you know that it requires practice, discipline, trial and error, research, learning your teammates strengths and weaknesses as well as your own, observation, communication, and dedication, but most of all it takes team work. 

We can all have the relationship that we desire, but it requires that we put as much effort into the finding and maintaining of the relationship as we would any other goal that we would work to achieve. 

Are you showing up to the game to win?

Love and blessings in divine order,
