On love

A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon the TV show "Double Exposure". It's about two world-renown fashion photographers who dysfunctionally work together even though they're no longer romantically involved. As you can expect, there are quite a few heated discussions. Still, these two obviously love each other. In fact, in this episode, Indrani tells her former lover, Markus Klinko:

"I love you too much to be in a relationship with you."

This sentiment especially resonated with me. Take a moment to think about it. It's one of those "so true" statements. And it got me thinking... in this context, what is love? How do you differentiate love that feels like a relationship but isn't?

Over the next few days, I pondered this question. It wasn't an active thought-process but something that popped into my head every now and then. So, without further ado, here are some of the reflections that came to me in my meditation:


♥ does not need to be defined to be true
♥ waits for you to open your heart to it
♥ teaches you to let go & live
♥ is the fire that ignites your dreams & fills you with hope
♥ lights up your heart & everything around you
♥ makes you SMILE!

Hope your hearts are full of love today and all year long.

great post!
I would add that love doesn't fit in a box and doesn't necessarily like labels.

Happy capitalism day! <3 :)

And it can find you out of the blue when you are least expecting nor even seeking it.

Absolutely! That's my favourite part, I think :)

Ahh, love. I've read some of your other posts on love and I think you have a very interesting take on it. Though, I didn't really have an opinion on most of the things you've covered. But, I should and I kinda do now. Love should be care-free. Also, don't pressure yourself into finding love. Let life, love, and chocolate flow! :)

Happy Non-Anatomically Correct Heart Day!
