On Love

Love is the key to my life, without a doubt. It's the biggest thing. Everything I do is because I love it (even if not completely shown), and everyone I surround myself with, I love, and love dearly. 

It's true. I love, love. I'm a love nut. 

I love seeing people who are in love, or even in 'like'. 
I love seeing people hold hands, walk with their arms around eachother.
I love seeing people sitting really close to one another, talking with their faces close together, smiling.
I love seeing people laugh with eachother. 
I love when people wink at one another.
I love when people are silly with one another.
I love knowing people are joking about an inside joke of theirs. 
I love seeing people whisper to one another.
I love feeling so connected to the person you're in love with.
I love having that one other person to share your entire world with, and you share theirs completely.
I love when people tell eachother their beautiful - no matter what - and they really mean their inner beauty flowing out.
I love unselfish love - where you put loved ones first.
I love respectful love. Faithful love.
I love the feeling of butterflies.
I love seeing and receiving those long, tight, close hugs.
I love when people support eachother in their relationships.
This world is hard sometimes, but it's so nice to have someone who you can always count on -
They're the biggest fans of your life.

I love seeing Moms who are so in love with their kids.
I love it when Moms hold their kids hands, or hold them on their hip.
I love catching Moms just watching their kids, smiling.
I love when Moms give their kids kisses on the cheek, with their eyes closed so tight.
I love when Moms cry because they're so happy.
I love when Moms would do anything for their kids, regardless.
I love when Moms teach their kids to be good people, nice people, to love kindly and always.
I love when moms are always there to talk to you, no matter what.

I love seeing Dads playing with their kids.
I love seeing Dads goofing around, telling jokes and carrying their kids.
I love when Dads do their daughter's hair.
I love when Dads give their kids really long, tight hugs - down on their knees. 
I love seeing Dads so proud of their kids.
I love when Dads give high-fives and say, "GREAT JOB BUDDY!"
I love when Dads cry when they're so happy.
I love when Dads love to be Dads, because it shows.

I love when sisters are close to one another.
I love when brothers are best friends.
I love when brother and sisters are eachother's biggest fans.

I've found being in a close family, and seeing families who are close - 
is such an amazing feeling.

I love the sight of 
aged love.
Love that has stood the test of time.
Growing old with someone is such a beautiful thing -
in a world when so much can go wrong.
It's such a privilege that I think we all over see.
Life just seems so much more blissful with your other half -
forever -
Whoever or whatever that may be.

Regardless of race, sex, nationality.
When you connect, you connect and nothing is more beautiful than that.
It's love.
You should love who you love. Forget the rest. 

I LOVE kisses. Anywhere, anytime, for whatever reason.
The best are for no reason at all.
Kisses on the forehead.
I love simple, sweet public displays of affection.
Who cares who sees? You're in love. And that's life.

All you need is love.
I believe in love.
I live in love.

For me, love just needs to be real. It needs to be felt more than it's thought. "Life is too short to be with someone who isn't quite right. Someone who makes you think more than they make you feel." (Anaïs Escobar) I've found this quote to be so true. It really goes for anything - not just another person. If you're engaged in something that you're not feeling, it pulls you down more than brings you up - than it's not love. I run, and run fast from those things, thoughts. I throw my whole body, soul, life into things I place in my life because it's love. I can't help it.

At the end of the day, nothing is going to ever be perfect. No relationship you have is ever going to be. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater. The love you have for someone, or something, should be bigger than all the other small differences. And that's the key. Love in a relationship should be the biggest part above EVERYTHING else. 

I look for "real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't live without each other love." Sex and the City.

My wish for everyone is that they find love in some aspect of their life -  it takes them over, makes them a better person, makes things around them better for being in their presence. Love can make up for a lot.
"Distance is not for the fearful, it's for the BOLD. For those willing to spend a lot of time alone, in exchange for a little time with the one they LOVE. It's for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough."

"There are no shortcuts in life or love. The pain is must be felt. It's what makes us special; what makes us beautiful; what makes us worthy. The pain of how we love - but that pain is accompanied by something else as well. Hope. With pain there is hope." Brothers and Sisters

"I guess, if anything, it's about taking chances, even when you think you're all out of chances. It's about giving forgiveness and unconditional love, even when it seems like you should only do the opposite. It's about trusting that God puts people in your life at certain times so that you can capitalize on the opportunity. It's all about the possibility. It's all about what you do with those possibilities. Life is short, but it moves so fast. Hang on and enjoy the ride. And when someone comes along with whom you enjoy spending the ride with - hold on tight!"

“Maybe mistakes are what make our fate... without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart... and if you're very lucky, a plane ride away..." Sex and the City
