Every day I take at least two one and a half mile walks. This fitness regime along with sensible eating has allowed me to lose almost 30lbs and 6 inches off of my waist in the last 2 months but everyday I walk you will see that like many others I have sprouted headphones on which I listen to a fairly eclectic selection of music on my mp3 player.
Today one particular song really stood out. Affirmation by Savage Garden. Not new I know but this song has always been an inspiration to me being mainly about Karma.
In particular one line of the lyrics stood out for me.
‘ I believe you can’t appreciate real love ’til you’ve been burned.’
And it rang so true within me. Me and my Raven have been through a pretty hard time over the last few months, For me that has meant plumbing the depths of despair and severe anxiety. I even thought I may lose her forever, but now we seem to be on track again after being so frighteningly close to the edge. I have always loved that lady with all my heart but that line seemed so true to me. Sometimes we don’t appreciate the love we have for another person and the love they return to us until we get to that terrible point where you fear they may no longer be in your life. Sometimes we seem to forget how incredibly much we can love someone
I am so thankful that we did find our way, as to be honest I do not know how I could have gone on without that wonderful lady in my life. I really do not think I could have survived.
