Celebration of Life

On Thursday, May 3rd, I celebrated the beginning of another decade of life – 30. This birthday to me, represented the ending of 10 tumultuous years; a mixture of beautiful and painful moments, realizations, friendships, loss, and much more than I can even begin to recall.

Throughout the past 10 years, I learned a lot about one sentiment in particular – love; what it is and what it is not. When I stumbled upon this quote the other day, I believed it was not simply a coincidence, but a reminder of the insight I’ve acquired over the years. To me, love is not simply words; it is not simply telling someone they are loved, but showing it, whether it is by leaving the light on, preparing a mug of coffee in the morning, writing out a reminder; acknowledgements of love can be in the smallest of ways, but mean more than words can explain.

What Love Is

On my birthday, I felt more love than I can begin to express. Having the opportunity to celebrate and commemorate another year of life with my family is a gift of love in itself.
