In a self-scripting class I said I wanted to talk about Love and my teacher--said, "that's too broad."
Bingo! I know it's too broad, that why I want to talk about it.
It's the one thing that everyone/thing needs, but not everyone knows how to give it or even receive it.
Love often gets confused with lust, sex, jealousy, obsession, and a variety of scary words---but love is just love--(until it's not). Love is also NOT "Like".
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
(1 Corinthians 13: 4-7)
Such an overused verse-- available at every wedding ceremony--but it's truly the perfect definition of this "broad" word that dictates our every move.
We do things for "love", we don't do things for "love", we do things we don't "love".
Love is blissful.
Love is painful.
It's a love story---but #therealone. #therawone. we're gonna leave the sugar at home, cuz there's nothing to coat. We're gonna be honest, and be liberated in the embarrassment, the awkwardness, the joy, and the tragedy that is the love between to individuals. the will be words, there will be music, there will be name calling, and if we're lucky maybe someone will make up. If we're lucky--maybe they won't
