What is love? Tough question to answer! Everyone has their own version of love, but here are some things love definitely is:
Love is like a sport. If you approach it with a casual attitude, you will never improve or grow. If you dedicate yourself to working hard, you can become better at it. The more time you spend at it, the easier it will be to practice it every day. The more you practice, the easier it will come to you. You will still face challenges that may seem insurmountable, but you will have confidence in your love and know that it will help you carry the day.
Love is a musical instrument. No one is a virtuoso from the first moment that they begin to play, but it takes a lot of time and effort to become good at playing. If the instrument is out of tune, things tend to go awry and the music made is unpleasant. When the instrument is properly tuned, the harmony is beautiful and can change hearts and minds. If the instrument is uncared for or neglected, it will be far more likely to break or suffer damage next time it is forced to play.
Love is beauty. But not the kind of beauty that can be altered with makeup, plastic surgery, or fancy clothing. It’s a subtle inner beauty that everyone can see, but which no one really understands. It’s an intangible “je ne sais quoi” that we all want, but there is no simple 3-step process to obtaining it. It’s either something you have or you don’t.
