Hi Ya’ll! Since I have less than a month until I will be in Savannah for work, I figured I need to get down my “ya’ll”. I hope you are all enjoying your week so far. I wanted to have a little decision about LOVE. What is love? How do you know when you’ve fallen in love and can you have more than one love? As you can tell, I am still a HUGE fan of Sex and The City. When I first started watching it, I don’t think I was mature enough to really understand the meaning of the show. Now watching, I just love, love the Carrie character. I like how she compares life & love to everyday things. Plus, now I respect each character and understand their meaning to love.
I feel everyone has a different meaning of love. When I looked it up, here is the definition of love in the encyclopedia –
The English word “love” can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from pleasure to interpersonal attraction. It can refer to an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment (this is how I feel most people use the word “love”) and it can also be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion and affection.
Obviously, you can love many different things, for example, I love my family but I also love the Chicago White Sox. I think you can have many great loves in your lifetime as well. What is the meaning of a great love anyways? Well I don’t know if any of us actually know the meaning of great loves but who cares as long as the love you feel inside is true to yourself. Now onto falling in love or being in love…well, that to me a little tricky. I feel that people “fall” in love with “falling in love”, especially at a young age. I don’t think I fell in love until I was in my early twenties. I am not the girl who married her high school sweetheart or the girl who honestly ever thought I’d be married until I was well into my thirties but things happen and when love is looking you straight in the face, you got to take it.
Now on a sad note, I do feel that people can fall out of love and rather easy in today’s world. That’s why I feel that you can have more than one great love but I do feel you only have one soulmate. I always think of my grandparents and how special their relationship was to each other. They were soulmates, partners for life, best friends. They were both born in the early 1900’s and you don’t see love like their love anymore which is rather sad. Even when I look at movies like the notebook, wow, that was love. Yes, it’s a movie, I get it but still that’s what I think of when I think of love & soulmates.
So in the end, I do have a lot of loves but having THAT great love or soulmate is well, just FABULOUS!! How do you feel about love or falling in love? Is there more than one great love out there for everyone? Do you feel that we have to be our first loves before we can love others? A lot to think about when it comes to love and everyone has their own opinions & feelings which I think is pretty amazing. Have a LOVELY day!! Cheers! xoxo
