Love Is In The Air

By Sam Brooks

There is a certain energy in the air when you meet that one. You both feel that energy drawing you two closer by the second and I don't mean that physically, y'all...  I’m talking about that feeling you get when you're tongue tied, laughing with a smile that expands ear to ear, and you are in harmony with the present moment. Nothing else matters because you are with someone that makes you feel euphoric. This is the feeling we all strive for in a relationship.

Tell me then, why do I keep finding myself always trying to force it? Why do we try and force that moment time and time again when trying to meet "the one" or in a relationship that just isn't working out? I don't know about you, but I find that to be exhausting.

Things start off great, they fizzle out, the cycle repeats. Now, you're all jazzed up thinking "is it me?” What do I keep doing wrong?", etc. etc.... until the marrow of confidence is drained completely out of your soul and you quit trying all together (If you've ever experienced this and need to vent or talk, then feel free to DM me on my IG).

In my opinion, if the soulful connection isn't there, then the relationship falls flat. It feels disconnected. When I decide to finally grow old with someone (ya know..when we are both wrinkly as hell and waaaay past our prime), I hope that I am still able to, after all these years together, be able to lock eyes with her and feel the same love towards one another that we felt when we first started dating. Honestly, the more I've started to hone in on my intuition and to stop thinking so dang much, my overall relationship with people have gotten exponentially better. The lesson learned: when meeting a woman or when meeting anyone, really... just go into it with an open mind, give whoever you meet my respect and full attention, let the conversation go where it wants to go, and listen to my intuition. If that connection is there, then it will be there! If not, that’s ok. You may or may not have made a new friend. At least, now you know if the feeling is there or it’s not. And if it’s not, then I move on… All is well!

Don't change who you are for anyone. Change who you are when you need to change who you are. Now, I’m not saying this change will be easy and can happen over night. It takes time and dedication. You have to allow yourself the time to grow. However, when you do start finding yourself making these changes and becoming your authentic self on a day to day bases, trust me when I say that it is absolutely spiritually freeing!

I believe in all of you!! You can make that change! One love!
