Dear Cozy.

Dear Cozy,

If life gives you lemons, ask for salt and vinegar.

My last letter to you.

Many times, when growing up, I vowed not to allow love again. I had been slapped in the face many times by love and I figured the ‘abuse’ was enough.

Most of the time, I lasted a few weeks or months before I smelt love creeping up on me. Maybe I’m the one that attracts love too easily.

Choosing to embrace love again is hard. It is like deliberately putting oneself into the ring to face a charging bull, again.

Your father had a hard time convincing me that his love for me is real and here to stay.

Life, everyday is a choice… As soon as you wake up.
Love, every time is a choice… As soon as you need it.

Love, Mum.

Just a Little More…

1. Love finds us easily but it can also hurt us freely. There’s a lot of work in love and only those ready for it will survive. Being able to put your all into love is what makes it work and also what makes it hurt so bad if it goes south.

2. I’ve written about love so much and even gotten the tag, “relationship counselor”. Yet, I had given up on love so many times. No one has it figured out, totally. We all seek clarity at some point. I’m glad I could pen down those moments when love had me down. I can look back and smile now.
