Lah-Lah Lotta Love


Love - an emotion desired by all, and misunderstood by a few. It’s an intriguing feeling that some people assert as the only thing that matters in life.

In fact, love is everywhere. It’s been portrayed in all formats. Movies, literature, songs, even on TV commercials, groceries, billboards, you name it. It works like a magical substance, leading you to irrational and impulsive decisions. It’s been the primary focus of harmless American movies and Shakespearian tragedies alike.

Love plays tricks on your brain. When people speak of love, they may mean infatuation or physical attraction. Happy couples fall in and out of love all the time, changing their minds at the speed of light. Suddenly, the whole relationship goes sour.

Despite the turnabouts and heartbreak between couples, there is another level of love: unconditional love. Think of devoted parents strongly connected to their not-so-perfect children; they see the beauty in spite of their sons’ and daughters’ bad habits.

This month, everyone will have a chance to share their feelings with their loved ones. Regardless of age, race, gender, civil status, distance, time, intensity or gifts, feeling love can inspire you to be a better version of yourself, and to see the world as a better place to live. This month is a time to remember to give more love, without expecting anything in return.
