We loved with a love that was more than love.

Be in love.

Be in love with the way the sun peeks through your curtains in the morning, or the way that the flames from the candles you light at night make shadows dance on your walls.
 
Be in love with the tone of someone’s voice, or how they say a certain word.
 
Be in love with yourself, your smile, your skin.

Be in love with the ability to have comfort.

Be in love with knowing that everything happens for a reason.

Be in love with a melody, the way music can move you.
Be in love with the moon, the stars.
 
Be in love with your perfume or the incense that burns midday.
 
 Be in love with nostalgia.
Be in love with longing.
 
Be in love with the ability to feel emotion, and what it can move you to do.
 
Be in love with literature, the way that words can be strung together to create something beautiful.
 
Be in love with all the possibilities of your future.

Be in love with how quickly your day can change from bad to good.

Be in love with the ability to trust.

Be in love with the feeling of success after working hard.
Be in love the ability to change your perspective and walk in someone else’s shoes.
Be in love with the cracks in the side walk.

Be in love with the ability that one person has to fix things for you.
Be in love with how strong you can be.
Be in love with knowing that you deserve good.
Be in love with the feeling of ‘home’, where ever that may be for you.
Be in love with possibility.
Be in love with something you shouldn’t be.
It doesn’t matter what you’re in love with. It doesn’t have to be anything big or fancy. It doesn’t have to be anything tangible. It doesn’t have to be a girl friend or a boyfriend, husband or a wife. It doesn’t need to be classified as ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. Just be in love. Simple as that; Be. In. Love.
And maybe even be in love with being in love.
