What is Love?
At first glance, it is such a simple word – easy to spell and pronounce. Yet if you take a closer look, you realize it’s a word with alot of complexity behind its meaning. So what is love, in the first place? Honestly, I’m not sure. I’ve been and I have asked that question a million times and, to no one’s surprise, I’ve gotten just as many answers.
I’ve heard it all – from the clichéd quotes down to those bitter heartfelt words. However, I have not experienced all of the kinds of love that there is in this world. Nonetheless, I have my own interpretation:
Love is the most beautiful thing.
It is sincerity, honesty, perseverance, humility, forgiveness, and most importantly, sacrifice. It rejoices not in pain – rather, it seeks felicity in the darkest, and most somber places. Love is like life itself, for we fight to keep it alive and mourn at its loss.

// I decided to change the challenge a bit because I felt like it lacked flexibility, so yeah. I challenge other bloggers to share their own interpretation of love and at the end add their favourite love quote!! I call it the “Love In My Own Words Challenge.” *Plus tag me because I want to see them 🙂 //
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible – it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could. ~ Barbara de Angelis
