True RomanceI found this interesting quote by author and psychotherapist, Roger Gould.
Children are incurable romantics. Brimful of romance and tragedy, we whirl through childhood hopelessly in love with our parents. In our epic imagination, we love and are loved with a passion so natural and innocent we may never know its like as adults.
Mr. Gould is not as optimistic as I am. I believe that we can find that kind of passion in our adult relationships as well. It is what I like to call True Romance; Romance that is absolutely true to the essence of who we are; Romance that pivots on a heartfelt naturalness of expression, rich with the unsullied innocence of a child; A pure, sweet and True Romance.
We all want it and some of us find it; or do we CREATE it?
Lets think about that for a moment. We know that we were able to imagine that we loved and were loved on a truly grand scale, as children. Logically, we all understand that it may not have really been so fantastic IN REALITY. But that didnt change our perception of what was real. And it is that perception that controlled our experience and fuels our delicious childhood memories.In our innocence, all we knew was true love, true romance. We didnt question it or try to figure it out or analyze it. We didnt try to control it, second guess it or manage it in any way. We simply let it be what it felt like to us; warm, secure, passionate, all-encompassing. We let it feel like true romance.
You see, the truth of the matter didnt make one bit of difference!
ONE OF LIFES BIG LESSONS! What we believe to be real IS REAL! That is what controls our experience! (this is really good news!) Simply put: We get to decide how to see (and feel) our experiences. We can be incurable romantics and whirl through our lives hopelessly in love with whomever we choose in anyway that suits us! We can feel all of the passion and excitement that we can conjure up in our fertile minds. So, fellow True Romantics, drag your epic imaginations out of the closet and lets get started!
