Life can be measured by all the moments that made you laugh. Take time to fall in love with each and every one of them. ~sms
They say love is a tricky word, a touchy subject-
I’ve heard it’s complicated, overrated, frustrating, irritating and at times even disappointing. I’ve seen couples that have been together their entire life and individuals who are still looking for the right one to come along. There’s people who have it, but don’t want it. And there are people who want it because they feel like they’ve never had it. I’ve learned that love is unique, in whatever form it may come in. Some people may spend their entire lives looking for true love, trying to perfect it; but meanwhile. they miss out on all the things there are to love in life and appreciate all the reasons it was meant to be different. I’ve learned that just because it’s different doesn’t mean that it’s not one in the same. And just because it can be the same- it doesn’t mean that it will never change. I’ve learned that there’s no such thing as being in it or without it because it’s always there if you choose to open your eyes and see it. Some people believe that falling in love means finding someone who is looking for the same thing as you. And for the sake of everyone reading this, I hope that has or will one day happen, if that is something (or the only thing) you may truly want. I know that I still have a lot to learn, and so far I haven’t gone in search of that someone, but I’ve been able to fall in love over and over again by choosing to see that its not important how or with what– it only matters that you do. It can be whatever you want- walking on the beach in the middle of winter, staying up too late watching re-runs that have played a million times or laying on the ground looking up at the clouds, simply doing nothing at all. Its about understanding that it is there. Maybe its not in the way you’d expect or thought to look. Or maybe it is. But if you haven’t found what you are looking for, theres nothing saying that it isn’t possible.
Whether you’ve already found your Romeo or Juliet- if it is that someone you are still looking for – or if you enjoy watching re-runs on the couch with a dog that happens to be named Buddy…. remember that like everything else in life- love has the freedom to change and grow, as long as you are willing to let it. All you have to do is learn to live and enjoy every moment along the way.
