Love Is a Choice

“LOVE Is a Choice”

Image

Never simple, and often not rational, but within our control to the extent of showing up with a willingness be present to others, fully and without pretense.

What does the quote,”Love is a Choice” mean to you?

I think being present–authentically present–makes perfect sense, and sounds simple, but it is very difficult to do.

So, if love is a choice, what gets in the way of choosing love? What do you choose instead of love?

Image

Is it fear? Self-focus? Anger? Judgements? Expectations? Being right? Being busy? Laziness? The list goes on and on. Usually we choose, without know we are choosing. We just aren’t paying attention.

So during this Valentine’s Week, let’s “Do Love” a little better by “Choosing Love,” and most importantly, “Showing Love.”

That Guru of Love, John Mayer gets it right when he sings…

Love is a verb
It ain’t a thing
It’s not something you own
It’s not something you screamWhen you show me love
I don’t need your words
Yeah love ain’t a thing
Love is a verb
Love ain’t a thing
Love is a verb

Love ain’t a crutch
It ain’t an excuse
No you can’t get through love
On just a pile of I-O-Us

Love ain’t a drug
Despite what you’ve heard
Yeah love ain’t a thing
Love is a verb
Love ain’t a thing
Love is a verb

So you gotta show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
That love is a verb

You gotta show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
Show, show, show me
That love is a verb

Love ain’t a thing
Love is a verb

I LOVE YOU JOHN MAYER
