L-O-V-E….the next journal prompt

Today’s journal prompt, and I know it’s been a long time coming, is about our favorite four-letter word….. hold on! hold on! no not that one…the four-letter word I’m talking about right now is l-o-v-e!   Love!!   If you had to grab a piece of paper right now and write down all the people, places and things that you love; could you do it?…. how far down on that list before you include yourself?   We’ve all heard it again and again…. Love is a verb, love is an action,  love is a feeling, love is an emotion.   I think love is all of those things and more; love is how you think, how you treat people, how you respect people, how you treat yourself, how you love yourself, how you take care of your plants, how you take care of your pets, how you treat a stranger, the words you say to someone you don’t know, the words you say to someone who can’t do anything for you. .   I think all of those things are love . We use that word so overly, for lack of a better term, these days that it’s scary!  “Aww… I love my new dress;  oh I love the way he writes; oh I love the new car”   all those things we say that we love, but are we confusing I love it with I enjoy it?…. because is it  love?   Don’t get me wrong, love is to be enjoyed, don’t you enjoy when someone loves you,  don’t you enjoy loving someone else?   so when you think about it, do you love that dress, do you love those new shoes  the way you love …..say your family, your kids, do you love yourself as much as you love things?  Love can be confusing…..  remember being a teenager and in love with that boy, or in love with that girl?   I remember in 9th grade…. I loved this boy so much, at least I thought I did, because by the time we were seniors… I didn’t want to look at his stupid face, was contemplating how I could run him over with my car and get away with it….(lol… that was a joke)   There’s so many different kinds of love; there’s romantic love ,  in the Bible, there is agape love, there’s unconditional love,  that we mostly bestow upon our children and our spouses…. sometimes our spouses…



I personally like to think about self-love, the love that you give to yourself.  It can be romantic, I hope it’s unconditional but I hope above all else that you DO have and express that love for yourself, that respect for yourself,  that you are worthy of love, you are worthy of that good feeling, that you are designed not only to receive love but to give love.   How good does it make you feel when you show someone else you love them?  How good would it make you feel to show yourself that you love you too, so as you get ready to write your journals….. The prompt is this…..” I will love myself by doing________” you fill in the blank, let me know in the comments.
