You may be in love right now. Maybe not. But when you think about it, over the years, throughout your life, haven’t you loved a lot? And haven’t you been loved in return? It gives me the warm fuzzies to think back on my first crush, a certain sweetheart, or even a recent flirt. All added up, you and me, we, have loved. A lot! Some believe that love never fades. You may not be feeling it this red-hot minute, but once created, love never dies.
Recently, I was sorting through boxes of memorabilia, trying to figure out what to keep, and what had passed the universal expiration date of ‘worth holding onto.’ Several times, I opened an envelope or card from a long-forgotten friend, someone I had not thought of in years, but who nevertheless in that long-ago moment had written a note expressing gladness for our friendship or love, and I was reduced to tears. Love never fades. We may forget it’s there from time to time, but it never forgets us.
Marianne Williamson says, “Love is what we were born with.” And in the end, love is all that matters. All the love you’ve ever known, will ever know, remains in your heart. It never fades and it never forgets what really matters. Love! love-C
My Two Cents: go tell someone you love them!
Twas’ not my lips you kissed but my soul– Judy Garland
Thats’s how I felt, first love, age 15. First time I fell in love with love and I’ve been hooked ever since. Every boyfriend, romantic comedy and sappy Nicholas Sparks novel. Everything about love was and is magical to me. How people meet, come together, the whole process has always fascinated and delighted me. What attracts you to one person and not another? How can you have these intense feeling for someone you barely know? Why are you so drawn to someone like the planets or something else designed the whole thing? I have loved a lot and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
Even when there is a dry spell between relationships whether by choice or by chance you can tap into the FEELING of love through wonderful memories. That is what people love most about love, it’s how it makes you FEEL.
I guess it has become one of my life’s missions, a life lesson or maybe just a wonderful hobby, to learn all I can about love. xo-K
My two cents: Think back to one of your favorite romantic memories, sit with it and savor it.
