Have you ever been in love? I mean truly in love. I'm not necessarily talking about just with another person, but more so with life, with yourself, with the details. Lately I've battled with the thought of have I ever truly been in love. Have I ever really been head over hills, overly joyed, and filled with fire? Have I ever felt that I would risk everything for something or someone because I was in love?
I realized I hadn't reached that feeling. I had love in me, but I wasn't deeply in love. And I wanted to feel what that was like. I wanted to exemplify every characteristic of love in every way possible and not have second thoughts about it.
I've heard countless times in some fashion that "love hurts," and that it simply not the truth. Knowing love and the traits that it holds does not provide hurt in any manner. And if it did then that was not love, or it certainly was not the love I wanted to fall into. I want to fall in the kind of love where it feels like I am forever floating on a cloud going straight into heaven's gates. The kind of love that only my God can give.
I want to fall in love with someone special and show them what true love looks like. I want to fall in love with my friendships and relationships so that I would never feel like I'm taking anyone for granted and not giving everything I have and more. I want to fall in love with the gift God placed in me and put in on display to the world, so that they can see the love within it. So that the world can see my heart, and all the contents that it carries. I want to fall in love with my purpose so that I would never lose sight of what really matters. I want to fall in love with my current situation and the life around me. I want to embrace every single moment of life and all the experiences that will take place. I want to fall in love with the details. The details that make up the big picture. The details that are over looked but matter the most. I want to fall in love with being a vessel for new life. I simply want to fall in love, be in love, and live in love.
Everyday I continue to ask myself, am I truly in love? Knowing that the thought is in the back of my mind keeps me motivated and inspired to pursue and radiate love in every aspect of my life. I never want to lose that fire, and I never want to stop adventuring through life's experiences that lead me to being in love and appreciating it.
Are you truly in love?
