NaBloPoMo - No love?

Today's writing prompt is...
Do you think people can live without love?
Technically, we need food, water, and shelter to sustain life. So I suppose, if you break it down that way - sure, a person can survive without love.

But truly live? No. I don't believe so.

Life is about more than survival. It's about finding joy and smiles and happiness. It's about knowing you have touched another person's life. It's about knowing you mean the world to someone. It's about letting someone mean the world to you. Life is about embracing all the world has to offer.

Life is about loving.

The good news is - it doesn't have to be romantic love. I'm living proof that's not a requirement to a fulfilling life.

If you don't want romantic love - or even if you do want it, and just don't have it right now - find love other places. Find love with your family and your friends. Love your work; love a hobby. Love a pet. Love a pair of shoes.

Love yourself.

Love your life.

Then you'll truly be living.
