Casual Love

Casual love... No, I don't mean casual sex. When I say casual love I mean using the word love in a casual way. Sure you may love your lucky charms, your new car, shoes, chipotle ( oh chipotle how I miss you and your veggie tacos ) but love loses it's value when you use it often, and casually.

I can't really say where the inspiration for this blog came but all I have to say is this: if you truly love someone, look them in the eyes and say it like you mean it. I hate the feeling of the phrase "I love you" becoming nothing but routine. I am the queen of routines and am guilty as charged for making this phrase one of mine. I feel like there is so much more I could express on this subject but seeing as though I am typing this on my phone.. My thumbs are already beginning to shut down.

On that note I will close with this: Don't say I love you unless you really mean it, and when you do, say it with passion as it should be said. Love is such a passionate thing. Don't let that die.

  1. I must say. You are right. saying "I love you" and meaning "I love you. are quite different. You can do one without the other, but doing both is different than just one.
    It is something that gets thrown around quite a bit, and before you realize it you become the boy who cried wolf for things that didn't even matter. Do you really love that inanimate object like you love me, or your grandma or God? Of course not, but do you understand that?
    I am proud of you sister. I can't wait to come to visit you. I cannot wait.]
    You are loved. And I really do love you.

  2. I'm with you. We had these Russian friends in L.A.that had antique business. I remember them telling us that when they see/know couples who were saying, honey this...honey that...along with throwing around "I love you" all the time, they were the ones they knew who ended up apart, because the words were just thrown around out of habit. They were very wise. I agree with you totally on this one. There's the other side of the coin too, i.e., personally never told by my parents that I was loved until my 40's....that is sad too.
