A blog post really got me thinking about love once again. It was a post that featured “I Got You, Babe” by Sonny and Cher. I started watching the video, and since I can pick up the vibes of people in a photo, I started to feel something. It was Sonny’s love for Cher, and her tepid interest. Not every photograph that flipped by felt that intense, but there were definitely a few where his love for her just poured over her disinterest. It’s almost like a feeling of “I am in awe” love. It was nice. I love the song anyway, but the video that accompanied it really added to the overall affect.
As August begins, and my summer comes to a close, I am happy with my ability to stay single and happy. This has been one of the most wonderful times in my life, and I am amazed that I feel that way. For so many years, I equated only romantic love with happiness, and now I am finding love in so many different ways.
I still want to find a partner to share my life with. I still want what I could feel from the above video. I know that what was there for them has gone and changed, but the reality remains the same. Sonny loved Cher long after their relationship was over.
Overall, I think for now I am finally okay with just me. I know I still have a ways to go, but I am happy with how far I have come.
