GROWTH = Not always fun in the beginning 🙌🏻
Love is @katrina_hope
texting to ask me how much writing I have actually done in October and then agreeing to hold each other mutually accountable to our goals. Love is @elisa_lou
knocking on my bedroom door, when she sees I've opened a bottle of wine and made my comfort food (pasta), then sits on my bed and listens to my disorganized thoughts and tears (all this after she has had a long day of being a nurse). Love is @katbradfordrn
and I giving room for our cave seasons and always reconnecting with depth. Love is when @designanddigest
and I can be late to a meeting and know there is grace. Love is @golden_pineapple08
and I sharing our relational challenges and laughing that we aren't alone and also giving each other a bit of a kick in the ass to change patterns. Love isn't always shiny sparkly feel goodness, it can be vulnerable, uncomfortable conversations and selfless actions that lead to a deepening of relationship.
Love is the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth. ...
Many choose relationships of affection and care that will never become loving because they feel safer. The demands are not as intense as loving requires. The risk is not as great. - Bell Hooks 📷: @alimakesthings
