“Love is any of a number of emotions related to a sense of strong affection and attachment. The word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure to intense interpersonal attraction. This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional states.” - Wiki
The word LOVE sometimes gets tossed around so easily - yet it always holds so much power. Even though it may vary in degrees of satisfaction from “I love my hair” to being the three most important words you express to someone, it always holds the same potency.
Some my argue that the word love has become too generic, because we use the word on an everyday basis as part of our pop culture. However, we all know that “I love those shoes” can never equate to a statement like “I love you.”
My feeling is we all need some type of love in our life , whether it be a tangible item, a best friend or your soul mate. I am happy when my clients say they love their hair, thrilled when my daughter tells me she loves me and smile every time my spouse says “I love you.” So work the word LOVE into your vernacular as often as you can. Feel the power of the word and smile when you say it or it’s said to you.
