As I watched the video, I was impressed. Tina Turner looks great! Oh what peace does for you. She is in love too. With a man 16 years younger than she. You know for us here at Fedora Loves Poetry that is great!
Tina is an inspiration to many. She found her way back from such a dark journey and delighted in herself first. She built a life for herself and shared her heart with another. But it begins with loving yourself and realizing that you are worthy of much more in this life.
What do you do when love has you by the neck, pinned against the wall? Daring you to move. It taunts you with challenges. See the flaws this is what you love as well. Challenging you to continue to love despite the flaws.
Your heart tells you to love all of them, flaws and all. You grit your teeth. You fight your heart because your mind says you’re crazy to keep going. But your mind doesn’t see all of them. Your mind only computes the rational things. Your mind doesn’t compute the warmth of their hand on your skin. The feel of their lips on yours. The comfort they bring when you are near them.
So the heart rules for the moment. The love dominates and keeps you going back. But the mind tells you to be careful because the road ahead is bumpy. Always is when you love another. Brace yourself for the ride. Know that you are committed for the long run. If not then the storms will blow you to and fro.
Despite the storms, the flaws, and the struggle his love is worth it. Loving unconditionally is never easy but He loves us that way. He created us and even when we disappointed Him he still loved us just as much as he did when we were born. Strive to love this way including God, yourself, your signifcant other, your children, your friends, and your family.
