Be Inspired Monday: Let Love Rule

Do you remember Lenny Kravitz's tune?

Kravitz sings "We have to take a stand."

But who is not affraid to love and take that stand?

I was. I was one of those who measured her love, meaning I gave myself away little by little. I didn't open up my heart totally because that meant losing myself. Then something changed. I met a guy, initially I was scared to let my love show, but something pushed me to let go of my fears. I cried the first time my lips uttered the I LOVE YOU words. I cried because it was my heart melting for this guy. Later in the years, my friends teased me because I was living a long distance romance, but I didn't mind because the way he loved me back was inspiring and gave life to my soul. I did let LOVE rule. I took a stand, it was due to that letting go of my fear of LOVING that I can say this year we celebrated our 10 years together. 4 years dating and 6 year married. And our first baby on the way.
True love can inspire people to improve their personalities and way of life. The kind of love that gives life doesn't close the door on your face when you most need it. It lifts you up.  Some people run when they find themselves front of it. But you have to let fear stand aside and Let Love Rule.

Today's Be Inspired Monday is about loving and letting yourself fall in love without fearing what tomorrow brings. It is about loving the one you love without fearing she or he might be the one to let your world crumble under your feet. Because you never know when true love comes knocking on the door of your heart.

Have you ever stopped loving because you were scared of what tomorrow might bring?
Are you living your best love story because you listened to your heart?

Please confess on TC30s.

Be Inspired Monday.

I am def. living my best love story because I listened to my heart. Before I met hubby, I was guarded my heart because I had been hurt before by men that I really thought loved me ... but everything with him was so easy. And I realized that that is how it is suppose to be ... 4+ years later, I am so happy I gave love a chance!

Beautiful post! :)
