What is love? 

What is love?

I am in the love business. I spend most of my days dreaming up and creating happily ever after’s for the characters in my books. I think about, study and write about love very regularly and think I have a pretty good grasp on the difference between lust and love, the desire for both, and the things that make a relationship between a man and a woman truly amazing.

Then again, there are days where I am surprised, surprised by people, days where I have to sit back and just say wow.

Today was one of those days for me, a time when I found something online that made me take another look at what I thought was true, re-examine my perspective on life and love.

There’s a photo documentary of this beautiful couple showing clearly a series of 22  images portraying a couple being truly in love. Check them out here. http://www.buzzfeed.com/txblacklabel/true-love-in-pictures-only-28m7. It’s definitely worth the click.

Their photos are an amazing example of the love we all want, and the love, at the very core that we want to give to another person. It shows that truly loving someone is accepting them for who they are, and who they aren’t, adapting to anything life throws at them and being there to support one another. Love is not about looking a certain way or having money or a certain lifestyle, but it’s about giving your heart and accepting theirs. Forever.

We want love to be beautiful and easy and fun, but that’s not how it works. Sometimes love is hard, sometimes it’s ugly and sometimes it isn’t fun. But those times are the times we really see what we are made of, really see that having love makes it worth slogging through those times and seeing the sunshine at the end of the tunnel, and  love is worth the time and effort and work it takes to prove to ourselves to the people that we love that we will be there for them.

So, I want to know. What does love mean to you?

  14. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if
    you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Thank you!
