Love and Freedom

I recently had a conversation with a friend about the adventure of falling in love. When I asked how many times they’d been in love, their answer surprised me—it was surprisingly low. Love is something we do easily when we’re young. Remember your first love? It was easy to fall for them, even if it was unrequited. You loved them simply because they were there. This was before you intimately knew the sting of heartbreak, the fear, anxiety, and self-doubt that always lurk on the other side of love. Before we knew, we were free.

Throughout my life, I’ve tried to live in that innocent place, doing my best to fall in love as often as I could. Even if it was just for a day, and all we did was get coffee and have a meaningful conversation. This idea of love must also be paired with release. You know that old adage: if you love something, set it free. You have to be able to leave that one-day lover the next day, no strings attached, only appreciation for the experience you shared.

Our fear of the unknown tends to stop us from accomplishing all sorts of things in life. Fear is mostly useless. Doing is where it’s at. I’ve found that life always works out. The universe always finds a way to keep you afloat and balanced.

Living free is the key to a happy life. Just as we let ourselves fall in love freely, without fear or restraint, we should approach life with the same openness. Don’t allow yourself to be shackled by money, a city, a person, or even your dog. Set yourself free from it all. Love hard, experience everything, because we’re not here for a long time; we’re here for a good time. So go out there, fall in love every day, and embrace all that life has to offer. The same freedom that makes love so exhilarating is the freedom that makes life worth living.

Stay strong.
