It feels like a lifetime ago since I wrote my last blog, and it kinda is. So much has happened in the past year, some of it heartbreakingly tough but also some of it so amazingly beautiful. And today I want to tell you about the "beautiful", because I think we all need to hear about the good stuff in life…it feeds our positive side. We hear enough of the negative on the nightly news.
Over the past few years, in all my novels, I have passionately written about two people falling in love, and through my writing I have expressed the way in which I longed to be loved myself. I mean, lets face it, love is the universal language. It's what we all desire, and all dream of. I don't think any of us should give up on the notion that there is that one person out there that would make the earth shake beneath our feet, that would move heaven and earth to show you just how much they love you, and would love you in a way you never thought possible. True love is certainly a beautiful thing to believe in.
Being a huge fan of Johnny Cash, my all time favourite movie is Walk The Line. I have to confess I've probably watched it at least twenty times, and I love it just as much every time I do. I have always been amazed by Johnny and June's love and have longed for this kind of connection, you know, the kind of connection where a person can touch your soul just by looking into your eyes. I never believed I would find it, knowing Johnny and June's love was one in a million. But, I have found it with my beautiful fiancé, Clancy. And I tell you what, it is the most amazing feeling in the world, to be so passionately, deeply, overwhelmingly in love. He has changed my life for the better, and proven that true, soul-deep love defies all odds, no matter what. I feel extremely blessed to have crossed paths with him in this lifetime.
So, for all of you lucky enough to have found this kind of love, a big happy hurrah to you and your loved one! And for those of you searching for it, please don't ever give up. Because if you truly, deeply believe in something enough, with all your heart and soul, there is a big chance it will become your reality. We are all worthy of the love we dream of, and life is too short not to be happy.
So, with that thought...
Keep smiling and dreaming
