The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Most of you who know me, know that I’m a decent person. But there is always room for improvement. I’m not always the nicest person I could possibly be, I tend to have a short fuse with things that irritate me. And sometimes my mood is determined by how I feel. I shouldn’t ever blame my attitude on a disease or how I feel, but I am sure most of you have been there before. It’s just hard to stay positive all of the time. I try, but then I get sick and my thought process is just not the same. I wish I could say I could control it all of the time, but I just can’t. I’m not saying I am a mean person, I’m just saying sometimes I can be a jerk and not realize that I am.
For those of you who know me and my wife, you know our favorite thing to do together is to go to concerts. We have a bucket list of artist that we want to see perform. This weekend we were able to see Paul McCartney. We had great seats, and the show was nothing short of amazing. His talent is unreal, at 73 years old and playing a 3 hour set without taking a break? Crazy. Songs help us heal, mend, and love. For me, music is my source of comfort. It’s one thing I’ve always been able to get lost in. Paul has so many great songs that speak to your heart and uplifts the way you feel. Songs can change who you are. And for me, I’m always searching for ways to become a better person, husband, friend and father. I’m always going to fail, I’m human. I’ll never be perfect. But as long as I’m alive I’m always going to try.
I guess what I really wanted to share was, instead of looking for someone to love you, just look to love someone else. I think a lot of times we get it backwards because naturally we are selfish. I’m sorry if I haven’t loved the way I should, the way I could. And I have to just keep reminding myself that “in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make”.
