The Love That Is Meant For You Will Come When You Stop Looking For It

It will come to you when it’s ready.

It will come to you when you least expect it to.

When life feels like it finally fits together and “love” is just an overlooked, almost-forgotten piece of the puzzle, that’s when it will come to you.

It sounds cliche, but it’s true: love will find you when you stop looking for it. 

When you’re searching for romance, you are telling the Universe that you are unhappy with what she has given you already. By wanting something so desperately, so hopelessly, so passionately, you are implying that you don’t have it. The more you think about what you don’t have, the more you’ll attract the fact that you don’t have the thing, the feeling, the person you want.

Love–the real thing–will come to you when the Universe sees your gratitude. When she sees your patience and acceptance for things being what they are. Please understand this: the love that is meant to be yours will find you when you stop looking for it.

And when it comes, it will make itself known. This kind of love – the love that is meant for you – will put you at ease just as often as it will make you face your fears. It will be big and bold and ignite a flame inside of you. It will be strong and beautiful and enchanting. With patience comes virtuous love, and what is meant for you will make its presence known. You’ll meet that person and you’ll think, oh, it’s you I was looking for, and you’ll understand that things come together when it’s time.

So when love comes, open your heart. Let it in. Watch it fit and fold together the way it was meant to.
