Love, Love, Love
Yeah baby… love. So a person told me not very long ago there are many forms of love. Which yeah there are. I just really don’t think about it very much. Does anyone?
You love your family. Yeah
You love your friends. Yeah
You love your pets. Yeah
Then there is that one love.. Amor. The stuff you read about and movies are made of. That soul sucking, heart wrenching, mind melting stuff people dream of. Is it real? Damn straight it is. Ask any Latina out there. We love hard and so when we get broken.. we break hard. Haven’t you heard any of our sad, broken hearted songs? They make country songs sound like a ray of sunshine. Ok ok I’m kidding, kinda.
People use the term I love you all the time. The meaning seems to vary depending on the person saying it. I find that actions are so much louder. People are busy, life is busy. So for someone to take a little time in their day is indeed a sign. Then again no message is also a message.
Someone dear to me brought this song to my attention, Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. A few lines from it are:
Those three words
are said too much
They’re not enough
I have to agree. You can tell a person all day how much you care or love them, but at the end of the day its going to be how you treat that person. If you value their heart you will treat it with care, as if it were your own. Not just at first, because its new and exciting. But later on too.
ok I’m gonna come off as a fairytale reading kind of person. However it’s my story so deal.
Shouldn’t there be a bigger connection? Is there a bigger connection?
Ahh yeah, that one connection… The one who gets you, who doesn’t care about yesterday. This person knows that’s what made you today. Made you the person he or she adores. No judgement, just a learning and a yearning. Like that? Lol. They are also around to be there for you. To raise you up, not break you down.
What’s this got to do with this blog? Happiness, the pursuit of happiness. Love has to be a part of it doesn’t it?
