Hi everyone and happy Wednesday! Ritu from But I Smile Anyway started the #Loveuary challenge today. I think it’s a great idea because the world needs a lot of love these days. The challenge takes place everyday throughout February. You can check out her post from today here. If you’d like, please feel free to join the challenge today or any day in February. You can choose any of Ritu’s prompts or do your own thing. I’m currently working on several writing projects. I’m still going to try my best to participate in the challenge everyday. My normal posts will also be included. My Loveuary posts will include a variety of romantic songs, quotes, recipes, stories, opinion pieces and maybe, just maybe a poem or two! It’s been YEARS since I’ve written a poem! Ritu’s day one prompt is to explain my definition of love.
My definition of Love
Love is a wonderful and happy feeling that can’t be seen but only felt. However, the words and actions from love can be seen. Three different types of love exist for me. There’s the unconditional love you have for family and friends, the one you have for a significant other and the love you have for favorite objects. For example, your favorite food and/or vacation spot. I like to show loved ones I love them by giving them hugs, buying them something they’ll enjoy and spending time with them. Unconditional love is when you love a person through good or bad times. For example, I love my son regardless of what he does. I’ll always want what’s best for him. I like to see him healthy and happy. I’ll always want to protect him from evil, even when he’s an old man. I want to take care of him when he’s sick. When you become a mother, your child is always on your mind. I always wonder if he ate all of his lunch at school. I wonder if he got to school safe and on time in the bus. The list goes on…
The love I feel for my significant other is unconditional with a slice of great chemistry and passion. He has become one of my best friends in life. I enjoy talking to him about how our day went while we share a pizza and watch TV. I enjoy lying down with him and having an hour-long conversation about different subjects. I like to cuddle with him in bed while we’re watching something on YouTube or “Game of Thrones.” I can honestly say he’s seen me during some really low points in life yet he’s still around. I want to see him succeed in life, especially as a nurse. He’s always on my mind. Despite all of the hard times we’ve been through, I can see myself growing old with him. I can see us raising my son and future child together. I’m not saying it will be easy but I’m in it for the long journey. I can’t really explain love for objects. They are just things you always want to eat or enjoy doing. 🙂 For example, I have lots of love for going on a fun vacation, blogging and eating delicious food!
