    I Believe Love Is the Meaning of Life

    Love is a funny thing. It's all powerful, with the ability to uplift a person to highs never imagined, as well as shatter a persons soul to lows never dreamed. Whats funnier is how different people perceive Love in their life. There are those who live to feel it's warmth...

    Love what you have and you'll receive more love.

    I try to practice this everyday. I'm still waiting to receive that love I give. Sometimes I don't think he'll ever know how to love me properly again. -little rants at 1Am

    As much as people idealize romantic love.

    As much as I enjoy romantic love. I think there is a much greater love, a love that engulfs familial love, platonic love, romantic love, etc. Ever see those concentric circles? each has a name, but there is a place in the middle of the cluster that overlaps and that place...

    We can always love, starting by ourselves.

    More you love, more you bring to the world, and trust me, every living creature can use a little magic through kindness, compassion and love. I believe everything has a spirit to be cherished.
