Searching for it? Falling into it? Maybe you’ve already found it?

A very dear friend of mine is falling in love with somebody special. I’m serious! My friend is falling in love as I type this. For the past few weeks I’ve listened and read about every lovey dovey sentiment known to womankind ….. and it’s so frikken cute!

{Darling anonymous friend, if you’re reading this ….. “sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G”}.

Remember the crazy butterfly feeling you get when you fall in love? Being giddy with excitement and every waking moment is consumed by thoughts of your lover? {It’s been a while for me, but I think I remember it feeling like this}.

Love is what we’re all wanting and ultimately the greatest gift we can give somebody. It’s affection and pleasure. It’s a virtue, a state of mind, an intimacy. Love makes us do crazy things. It also centres us, fills us with compassion and kindness.

And let’s not forget about lust!


Searching for love? It always happens when you least expect it. Increase your social life. Say ‘YES’ to every invitation. Have faith that your life is exactly where it’s supposed to be right now.

Falling in love? You start dating, meet friends, meet family, become exclusive, send 100 texts a day, wear cute knickers, talk and talk on the phone, snuggle on the couch with a bad rom com movie, leave love notes in cars/drawers/pillow, discuss future dreams …. and before you know the words ‘I LOVE YOU’ have escaped your lips without warning.

Found love? Love and pure happiness is waking up in the middle of the night, and feeling the heat of the person next to you. You turn around and see them in their most peaceful and vulnerable state. You smile, kiss their face in the most gentle manner so as not to wake them. You turn back around and an involuntary grin forms on your own face. You feel an arm wrap around your waist and you know it doesn’t get any better than this. That’s love.


Love is complicated and yet so simple, don’t you think? I feel extremely blessed to have found ‘The One’ that makes me want to wake up every morning and kiss his face.
