The Puzzle of Romance

If you have known me, or read my blog, for any length of time at all, I am sure you have heard me say “Every moment is perfect.”

It is one of my favorite beliefs, and yes, I do believe it.

I also understand that many moments feel anything but perfect.  Which is one of the reasons I love the saying so much.  There have been many times when I had to remind myself that ‘Every moment is perfect.’

Similarly, a quote by Deepak Chopra proclaims:  “There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.”

Today is Valentine’s Day.  Last year the weekend before Valentine’s Day I was with a bunch of friends and I heard them referring to the upcoming holiday of romance as “Valloween”.

Most of us enjoying brunch together that day were single women.  And although I did think it was a hysterical nickname for the holiday, I also totally understood why a person could feel that way about a holiday that has as it’s sole purpose the celebration of  romance.

Because let’s face it, when you aren’t having any romance, it’s sort of difficult to want to celebrate it.

And although I am currently in a very happy romantic relationship, I have been single, and I do remember how painful it can be to watch the world around you celebrate their romantic bliss while you patiently wait for the day of hearts and flowers to pass.

It has been during times like that, that I have reminded myself that every moment is perfect, that there are no extra pieces in the Universe.

YOU are not an extra piece.  You are perfect.  This moment is perfect.  Right where you are, right now, is perfect.  And I believe that if romance and partnership are something you desire, that there is a perfect person out there for you.

So if you haven’t found that puzzle piece that fits you perfectly yet, keep searching.  Keep believing that there IS a piece that fits.  And just as when you are working a real jigsaw puzzle, remember that you have to KNOW what the piece looks like.  Get really clear on what you want, and you’ll be that much closer to finding it.

Love & Magic,
