I Believe In Love

Yesterday, I got hired to sing for a guy who was asking his girlfriend to marry him. I was rolling my eyes and joking that I would write them a special song called “It’s all downhill from here” (which might not be a bad idea, actually). But when the big moment came and he got down on one knee and tears filled her eyes, I was fighting back tears, too.

And at that moment, I knew that despite everything it’s done to me over the years, every time it’s chewed me up and spit me out, I still believe wholeheartedly in love. Maybe I approach it with more caution these days. Maybe I’m a little wary about how quickly I give my heart away, or maybe I’m just extremely picky about who I give it to. But I’ll never stop believing in love.

Because the only thing sadder than a broken heart is a songwriter who doesn’t believe in love.

Wishing you love and success in the New Year.
