Love. That's what its all about.
This month, I am dedicating my blog to love. Yes this cold, cynical, brutal, analytical, bitter heart of mine is going to focus on love. After all, that's what life is about.
Love comes in all kinds of shapes and sorts. And it is really not just romantic love that counts. There are all kinds of love. Out of all the emotions humans feel, I think love is the most powerful feeling. It can invoke a whole range of other emotions. May the powers that be have mercy on us and guide us.
Happiness, sadness, angst, passion, lust, jealousy, fear, loneliness, unhappiness, pride, passion, joy, gut wrenching pain, heart break, surprise, shock, awe, butterflies in the tummy, pleasure, disappointment, heart break... I could go on and on.
And love is a spectrum of colors. Love is not a rainbow. While it may have red, yellow and orange, it also has dark colors to it. There are blacks and grays. But then there are also hues of silver and gold.
Love is what makes you want to throw logic out of the window. So you make decisions with your heart and not your brain. Matters of the heart. Consequences be damned.
But ultimately, love is what its all about. Nothing matters if you don't have a loved one to share it with.
Question: Have you ever had a crazy crush? And did you do anything crazy for that crush?
My answer: I once stood one 1 leg in a yoga position for 1 hour praying that the boy I had a huge crush on would notice me and love me. I was 15. And he never noticed.
