“True love is not something you fall into, or passively happens to you beyond your control. True love is an active choice, that each day you must wake up and make.” My 31st article for Huffington Post, published in April 2016.
Ultimately, we’re not passive recipients of love or happiness. In so many ways we’re taught to sit back and wait for love, wait for happiness, wait for satisfaction to find us when that’s not how it works at all. We ourselves are the active participants in the promotion or prevention of our own lives.” My 27th article for HuffPost, published in Feb 2016.
