Love Is An Act Of Faith

“@ amynicholson_

Love is not just the fleeting feelings you have when you satisfy someone, when your eyes lock across a shared space, when your laugh falls in sync and suddenly the room spins and everything feels so foreign and yet simply, strangely familiar.

Love is not just the rushed of warmth on your cheek, the pitter-patter of your heart, the way your words seem to roll on your tongue and have trouble passing your lips. Love is not just the hesitation and then the rushing when you eventually step forward or fall into someone else’s arms.

Love is not just the quiet moments, or even the loud, where your love is in a simple espouse or proclaimed in a crowded room.

Love is not just the single option you attain, to let someone into the depths of your heart, but the continued choice you attain, day after day, night after frustrating night. Even when your body is tired and your spirit is worn and your intellect has wandered elsewhere and doubt has become your closest friend.

Love is a commitment, a promise, a decision that you maintain building, even when the world keeps pulling you away. Love is a constant–sometimes beautiful, sometimes heartbreaking–but what you feel and know and believe, despite all odds.

Love is love, putting aside every other whim and desire of the world to say to the person you wish to spend forever with that no matter the obstacle.

It is waking up in the morning and promising to be the best woman or human you can be for that special person. It is putting aside your stubbornness and selfishness to give all that you have, simply because they need it.

It is believing that your bond will stand the test of period, even though you cannot watch what the future holds.

It is confidence and vulnerability and continuance, through all the sunshine and storms and ease and pain of this life. It is disregarding the fears of this world for promises you’ve stimulated, for a connect merely the two of you can see and feel and understand.

And above all, it is religion. In one another. In your bond. In the emotion itself. Falling deeper into each other and choosing one another, every single day.
