THOUGHTS ON LOVE
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner which has got me thinking about love a lot recently. There are hundreds of thousands of love songs, thousands of romance stories across thousands of pages and screens both big and little. Love is everywhere yet It’s such a complicated emotion, and it seems we do our absolute best to make it even more complicated nowadays. When it comes to the subject of love, I for one am still that hopeful little girl watching romcoms on the weekend. To me it’s the most important thing in life. It’s the driving force behind both passion and compassion. When I think about the way I want to live my life and how I see the world years from now I always come to the same conclusion: that love is our purpose. My purpose. The memories you share with your loved ones is what you will think of on your death bed. These are the kind of things that will matter - Who is around you and what kind of mark you left on this world.. how many people were touched by your love and kindness? Did you love yourself enough to work hard for the life you wanted to live, regardless of your fears? Did you wake up everyday DOING what you love?
So, why do we make it so complicated these days? Why do we deprive ourselves from the relationships, or careers, or memories or LIVES that we deserve? Why do we swipe right and left through each partner and each day? Have we settled for temporary feelings of contentment instead of a lifetime of love? These are the thoughts that consume me as of lately. I hope as a whole, that we can do better. I choose to live my life full of love for myself and those around me. It’s not always easy but it’s definitely worth it.
Oh, and since it’s been awhile here’s another playlist. I didn’t make this one, Spotify found it for me but if I were to make a playlist full of love songs this is pretty close to what it would look like. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do xo
