Chasing Love

I believed love had to be chased.

That love was something only other people could give you.

It was something to be obtained.

So, I chased.

And chased.

It became exhausting.

It started hurting too much to chase.

There had to be a better way.

I decided to get still.

It was in the stillness,
I started connecting with myself.

Connecting with the love I already possessed within myself.

The love I so freely gave to others.

I finally allowed myself to start opening to my own love.

Feeling my own love.

Bathing in my love.

And realizing this love was available to me,

No chasing involved.

So, when I feel the urge to chase love,
I place my hand on my heart, and remember that I AM love.
