All of it.
Love is a phrase that is used way too often, and not often enough. Love is ever-evolving and flexible. Love is patient(Soooo much patience).Love is infuriating. Love is just as fierce as it is kind. Love is everything, but love is not the only thing. Love is powerful.
All of it.
Saying the word love doesn't make you loving, just like discussing flight doesn't make you an eagle.Being capable of love doesn't always mean that you are loving. The fear, the passion, the boredom, the hope, the comfort, the frustration- everything waxes and wanes. Love has to be both kind and fierce to be fully understanding. Love is the back and forth. Everyone has these feelings. It's how you deal with those feelings that's important. It's how you express those feelings that makes it special. Love is a choice. It's putting in the effort towards the good things, building a solid foundation, so that on your worst days you're still okay... that make it worth it.
Love is romantic. It's a mirror and motivator to your hopes and dreams, as well as an opportunity to share the burden of your largest fears.
I love hard. I breathe in the insecurities, strengths, and goals of what I love in my life, and place them in front. Whether it's a person, a job, or a dream, I go all out. If I cowered or if I was afraid to be bold, how would I learn? Make mistakes, pay attention, don't make those mistakes again, and repeat.
Think you love someone? Think you love something?
Okay. Love all of it.
