Celebrate Love in February

Happy February everyone! So it is officially the month of 'love', when the card company's make a mint and we either feel the pressure to show our significant other how much we love them or feel kinda shitty for being single for the 3rd Valentines day in a row. There are definitely a lot of negatives to this time of year if you let it affect you but at the same time, I can't help but love it. 

In today's world there is so much hate. You can't turn on the news or even open Facebook without hearing about the hate one human has committed to another in some form. Whether it be war, abuse, or neglect, hate gets so much air time. 

So why not take this one month of the year to focus on love? I'm not talking solely about love for a partner, which V-day seems to focus on. That is only one kind of love. There are SO many kinds of loves to be celebrated. 

This month I challenge you to look out for love everyday. 

When you're walking down the street look at the way a mother protectively holds their child's hand as they cross the road.
Watch the way a grown man helps his elderly mother do her grocery shopping.
Notice the teenage girls in hysterics laughing with each other over silly things.
See the way lovers link their arms.
Watch how the guys order their 'too drunk friend' a taxi home on a night out.
In the park, notice the way the man embraces his Labrador when he brings him back the stick.

Look at it, take it in and let it fill you with faith in humanity.

Love is everywhere. It so often goes ignored. Rarely making the news or given much attention, love is seen as the mundane. 

I think otherwise though. To me, love is far from mundane. Love is the least mundane of all emotions. Love is like a raging fire in your heart that sets your soul alight. To me, love is what makes life worth living. Without it, their would be little meaning. Love is the only thing that has the power to fix all pain and all hate. 

So whatever you think about Valentine's day, try to celebrate love this month. Look for it around you and appreciate its beauty. Think about the people in your life you love and put a little extra effort into showing them, because as a wise man named John Lennon once said...
 "Love, love, love. All you need is love. Love is all you need"
