Everyone has their definition of love.
I believe love is multifaceted. There’s love for family, love for children, love for people, and love for your partner.
One thing that I do know…
Love is always apparent, transparent and never a conundrum.
Love is a white blood cell that seeks out the virus that is hatred, anger, resentment, bitterness, envy, fear, and eradicates them.
Love isn’t roses for a day, it’s my word, my bond, my honesty and my heart for life.
Love is sacrifice… love is giving selflessly without thoughts of reciprocation.
Love is a lifetime, being in-love is a moment in that lifetime.
Love doesn’t take our breath away, it breathes life into you.
Love is thoughtfulness, note-taking, memorization of your partner’s needs and wants.
Love is writing your name on a piece of paper but changing the last name to your partner’s last name.
Love is proactive, it doesn’t wait… because love is like that orgasm that you can’t hold… it needs to be great.
Love isn’t petty. Love isn’t spiteful.
Love is honest expression when it hurts to say.
Love has conquered more people than Napoleon, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Tamerlane, and Genghis Khan put together. Love is ruthless in that way.
From the hardest of hearts, to the most stubborn of minds, love finds a way.
So many people say… “Love is not enough.” We made love not enough.
Love is easy… we make it complex with all our lists, standards, expectations, preferences, and the lot. We call that love, that’s not love. Love is something we forgot.
Love was apparent when we were kids. We just didn’t recognize it. But it was easy… it was truly organic in its creation. It was trying to make your girlfriend smile just because you liked her. It was secret kisses, letters passed throughout class. It was phone calls where you stayed up until the wee hours of the morning until one of you (if not both of you) fell asleep.
That’s what love looks like to me. No makeup, no accessories, no taper, just raw, unmitigated passion for the other person in their purest form
On this Valentine’s Day, I wish you all the best in your current or future love.
