Hola folks! 🙂
Today’s post is all about LOVE. The most exquisite feeling on this planet, and in this universe as well. 😉 And I just can’t verbalize how phenomenal I feel whenever I talk, think, see, feel, share and give love. I think it is ‘THE MOST’ paramount factor in our lives which makes us feel vibrant. Don’t you guys agree? 🙂
The idea of love has always been about giving and sacrificing for the other person. Often, people lose themselves in it. But, love isn’t an agreement. Love is a funny thing. I expect it to be easy. I expect it to be a world of roses and laughs and perfect moments that you find only in movies. The ones which feels like a fairytale. I expect you to always say the right things, and always know exactly how you feel, or exactly how to react to it. :O
I expect you to calm me down when I’m yelling, or to chase me when I walk away. I expect so much that I feel entirely, and utterly defeated when something doesn’t exactly match up with all my plans. This happens, with all of us, no denying.
But that’s the thing. Love isn’t a plan. 😉
It doesn’t have a certain beginning, and it certainly has no end or visible finish line to those deeply in it. In fact, it doesn’t involve any forethought. Love happens – it is so incredibly messy. 🙂 People around me can’t comprehend why I do the things I do, or why I fight so hard for something that seems to cause me so much pain.
Because simply, they can’t see. They can’t see the invisible ring of insanity that surrounds me when I’m in love. It’s inconvenient and painful and devastating at times, but we can’t live without it. 🙂
What you don’t absorb is how serene love is. How much faith it takes. How much of ourselves we have to put into it. How it isn’t worth it until we are complete and utter idiots about it. 🙂
Love isn’t you calming me down when I yell. It’s you yelling, just as loud, just as hard, right back at me, right in my face to wake me up and to keep me grounded. It isn’t me bringing you roses everyday, or cute things that make our relationship appear more presentable. It’s after a long fight, that drains the life and bones right out of us both, and yet me showing up the next morning anyway. It’s not you saying all the right things or knowing exactly how to handle me. It’s not you sacrificing your comforts for me. 🙂
So no, it’s not me caressing your hair and telling you everything is going to be alright. It’s me standing there, admitting I’m just as scared as you are. It’s ‘US’ waking up every morning earlier than we must and imagining the possibilities each day could hold, daydreaming about the future. 🙂
You have to remember that with love, you’re not the only one involved. You’ve unknowingly put your life, your heart into the palms of another persons’ hands and said, “Here. Do what you will. Mash it into mince meat. Or forget I ever handed it to you. As long as you have it.” It makes us crazy. It makes us forget reality. 🙂 This feels so pure and genuine that once you get a whiff of it, you could never really stay away from it. It makes dreams visible, and it erases all the lines that we shouldn’t cross. It’s me being with you, accepting all the flaws yet being grateful for it. It’s sharing our intimate feelings and fears and overcoming it together. It’s not you guiding me, it is ‘US’ finding our way together. Love doesn’t calls it to be perfect. Love accepts the blemishes, it even makes fun of them sometimes. But most primarily, love is being honest about them, and that’s what matters. Because love isn’t about fencing ourselves in; feeling safe, feeling sure about the future. It’s about scaring the shit out of every nerve in our body, but pushing forward anyway. Because all the fighting and all the tears and all the uncertainty is worth it. 🙂
So, yes. Say yes to love. In fact be open to it. If you find someone who has a heart of gold and walks with you matching all your steps, makes you feel special, sees your faults and accepts them, sees the light and embraces the dark with you, someone who’s against all odds, then keep them closer. Not everybody is going to be that way. So, when you find that ‘SPECIAL SOMEONE’, say ‘YES’ to them and make them your life. 🙂
And it’s a hell of a lot better, than being 100% happy without someone to show us that there is a world of a difference between feeling ‘happy’ and feeling whole. 🙂
Until next time, stay blessed and always be in love. 🙂
