Have You Ever Risked Everything For Love? Excerpt From 'Embrace the Change Be a Rebel on Purpose'
“When you meet the one who changes the way your heart beats, dance with them to that rhythm for as long as the song lasts.” —Kirk Diedrich
Have you ever risked everything for love? Have you ever risked everything for your soulmate? Were you afraid to take the plunge? Did you find that perfect someone that changes the way you have always thought about love? Did you find that person who changes your life without even trying? Did you find that someone who enters your life at the most unexpected moment and sets your heart ablaze with a fire you have never felt before?
Love is a risk; no one is ever ready for it, but it’s worth the risk. Take the chance, because you will never know if it was the perfect love if you don’t. Finding that connection with your soulmate is the most wonderful experience you can have. Do not be afraid to take that risk, or you will never know if they were the one that was going to change your entire life.
Don’t let fear stop you from having what could be the most amazing experience of your life. I would rather take the risk of finding love and happiness than to never know what it could be like. Don’t be afraid to go where you have never gone, for you may like it there. Love will always be a risk, but your heart will be fuller from having experienced it.
The moment you open your heart to someone, you are taking a risk. It’s terrifying to love so deeply, but you will be richer for having loved. You need to take the risk to find the love that you deserve to have. Just know that you do deserve that love. You deserve the love that comes out of nowhere. You deserve the love that your heart knew from the start would be the one that would fulfill your dreams, be a complement to your strengths, and help you overcome your weaknesses. It will be a feeling beyond anything that you have imagined.
For what it’s worth, it is never too late to find love. There is no time limit, and there are no rules. Maybe it won’t work out, but maybe it will. Just make the best of it while you can. If it didn’t work out, it wasn’t a mistake; it was a lesson.
Lord Tennyson said it well: “Tis better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.”
