Love Really Is Life

Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life. – Leo Buscaglia

I purposely chose this quote for Valentine’s day.  Not because I have a valentine.  Quite the opposite in fact.  I am what I think of as terminally single.  And yes, I jokingly put up a Happy Singles Awareness day on my facebook this morning. But the fact of the matter is, love is love.  It can be passionate love, familial love, or the love between friends.  Heck, it can even be self-love, which is a pretty important type of love if you ask me.  It can be love love really is lifebetween yourself and your deity, or the love of a devoted pet.  Love isn’t limited to passionate or romantic love.  So many people today are talking about how miserable they are because they don’t have a “special someone” in their lives.  Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, focus on the love you do have.  Because love really is life, and if you live a life without love, I don’t really think you’re living at all.

When it comes right down to it, the most important love in that list is self-love.  Think about it.  If you’re not happy with who you are and what you’re doing in life, how can you be happy with anybody else.  I would even go so far to say that if you don’t have a healthy case of self-love, any relationship you are in will never be as fulfilling as it possibly could be.

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not overjoyed that I’m not in a romantic relationship, I miss that part of life.  But that doesn’t mean I’m sitting around sulking about it.  I go out, I do things, and I’m living a great life.  If a romantic love is in my future, that’s great, but if it’s not, that’s okay too.  I am not defined by my relationships, and nobody else should be either.  Define yourself by who you are and what you do, not who you are with!  Get out there and live your life, and live it to the fullest.  Celebrate the love that you do have and allow it to fill up your life.
