Do you think romantic love is a choice? I don’t mean at the very beginning when it takes ahold of you even when you are trying to fight it. I mean later, when your pulse stops involuntarily racing at the sight of the person who used to make your pulse involuntarily race. Then does it become a choice? A choice that you make over and over again.
Or is love like the ocean? Does it ebb and flow?
I don’t know, I’m still living my great love story and the truth is that even when it isn’t great, it’s great or at least it is greater than me. This particular love story challenges and makes me grow. Sometimes I think it is a choice that I make over and over again and other times I feel like I have no choice in the matter. There is something really beautiful about being with someone for a long time and seeing them change, watching them age, and loving them through all of it.
I’m not sure I agree with everything that Bob Marley has to say about love in the quote below, but he makes some very good points.
I’m a sucker for love stories and my life is full of them. They’re not all romantic love stories, but they are most definitely love stories.
And now your Friday Fortune Cookie
