Love is a beautiful thing that allows life to take on a world of its own. Love, although many find it hard to find, is not only between two people in a relationship, but is also found throughout many aspects of life. Without love, this world would not operate the same way nor have the same meaningfulness.
As a child, you begin life with love right there to hold your hand. Parents are the first introduction we are given to love and often help us to form our perception of what the word “love” means. Although love comes in many shapes and forms throughout our life, our parents are usually what our foundation of love is built upon.
Parent, family, and sibling love is probably not the first thing people often think of when they hear the word “love” however. Even though it is the first example of love we get, it is not the one that people often find themselves seeking throughout their life. After you are given the example of love and compassion from your parents, the idea grows until it takes another form found through relationships. There are also many types of relationships in which love is found – including love shown for strangers or friends – but, as we enter into adulthood, the main focus falls to the love we find through our mate.
Relationships are very important for many people; especially if you’re a woman. Not everyone is the same of course, but I know that many women I hear from are always searching for that perfect someone to love them. Love is important in life so it only makes sense that people would seek it out and want to have someone there beside them to love them for the rest of their lives.
“First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage.” What a great example of how love can have an influence in your life. In elementary school, I would often hear someone being mocked by this little song, but looking back at it now, it seems to hold a deeper meaning. Love and marriage are important steps in a person’s life and with the birth of a child, well then you are starting the process all over again by introducing love to your newborn. It’s like a perfect circle of never ending love.
Recently being a bride myself, I know how special that moment of marriage can be. It is the ultimate celebration of the love you have for your partner. Taking a journey through your relationship together, love is a beautiful result of an attraction for each other. You hear a lot from people that your wedding day is the happiest day of your life. For me, I can honestly say that it was. The world around me seemed to change into this magical place with my husband at the forefront of it all. For those who are lucky enough to find love, your marriage is a great way to show commitment to that bond of love.
But what else does love influence in the world? Isn’t it just how two people feel? Well, not quite. The world itself seems to be cashing in on this wonderful feeling of love. Valentine’s Day, the cost of weddings, engagement rings, special dates and outings, as well as other presents for each other are all aspects that come with relationships. Love has always been something special that everyone wants to be a part of and celebrate, so it makes sense that a lot of the revenue of businesses come from elements of love. This isn’t a bad thing though – it just shows that love is able to keep everything moving and alive. Everyone needs an income to be able to survive and love can help to provide this.
Love is found everywhere you go; you just have to open your eyes and look around to be able to see it. Family, relationships, and businesses all rely on love to keep going. Without love, the world would be a harsh place to live in. Love is important to everyone and if we all loved just a little bit more, the world would not only keep going around, but it would be a better place for all.
