Episode 111: You Have So Much Love To Give


A moodier set of happy things, the ones you discover late at night awake in your room and staring out at the city lights, enjoying a late dinner alone, dancing to music no one else can hear and knowing there's more than enough love in this life.

Sending you a song that reminds me of you and me.

Finding happiness after feeling so desolate for so long.

Knowing that there’s so much love in the world, you don’t need to make yourself small, or live with less, and asking for what you want and need doesn’t make you needy.

Taking a cold shower on a hot day, feeling the day melt away under the cool water.

Watching someone else cook you dinner, their gentle movements in the kitchen, humming to themselves, checking the recipe.

Driving late at night on city streets after the rain, the slick sound of wheels on pavement, lost in your own thoughts.

Sharing insomnia with someone else, you two awake in the night, two bright stars in the darkness.

The smell of coffee beans on your clothes and in your hair after a lazy afternoon in the coffee shop.

Taking yourself out to dinner alone, with a book, lingering for hours over dessert and coffee.

An impromptu dance on the sidewalk, shaking your hips to invisible music.

Reaching out to someone as soon as you think about them, even just to say hello, I miss you. 

Knowing you’re going on a trip soon, looking forward to it for weeks on end, planning and enjoying the wait.

Turning the page of the calendar over, a new month awaits you.

Watching the clouds, knowing this is the one time this sky will ever exist -- a unique mixture of cloud, sky, light and time.

Discovering that you have so much love to give, that there’s more than enough for everyone in your life.
