Never Too Much Love

One thing you can never overdo is love.

“Stop loving me so much!” — said no one ever.

Iterating and reiterating love is always welcome.

Even better than that? Finding a new way to love someone, or a new thing to love about them. Or (oh yes!) a new thing to love about yourself. Indeed one inevitably leads to the other: outward love to inward love and inward love to outward love.

To clarify, I’m not talking about romance here. Romantic love feels huge to us but is actually quite small when compared to the other loves.

The best loves are unrequited; they seek nothing in return. Their only purpose is to allow us to reach another heart, something at which we cannot fail if we truly want it to happen.

So, go out and love. Love with words. Love with action. Love in secret. Love in the beautiful light of day. Love when it hurts and love when you don’t think you can.

Whichever direction you face, however loud or soft your message, that love you send is for you. It will land on you. It will nourish you in ways you weren’t expecting.

Love is the only thing you get more of when you give it away.

A resource we can’t deplete.

But all need.

And deserve.
