all you need is love

Riding in the backseat of my moms 1989 Cadillac Eldorado listening to the oldies station, I heard my first glimpse of the answer: “All you need is LOVE” by The Beatles.
Love is all around us. Love is where life lives. Of course, in order for McCartney’s words to ring true we must truly understand the definition of the word ‘LoVe’. Love is not just a word we say.
Love is not always kisses & snuggles. Love is not a big, gorgeous wedding. Love is not sunshine & cupcakes for days. Love is not life filled with perfection. Love is a CHOICE and it takes WORK!
Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is never boastful. LOVE is also understanding, compassionate, empathetic, trustworthy, tolerant, peaceful, loyal, hopeful & honest.
Love is all encompassing. Love is buying a cup of coffee for a homeless person. Love is truly understanding other human for their differences. Love is accepting those whose values we don’t necessarily agree with. Love is helping someone in need. Love is smiling at someone who is frowning. Spread love, focus on love and allow this world to FEEL more LOVE because love IS the answer!
All you need is love. Love. Love is all you need. Love hard, my friends x
