Day 9

I suppose,
Love in all of its many forms is beautiful.

I do not pretend to be the expert on love,
Because I don't believe that love is something you fall into.
I believe it is something you learn to do.

It doesn't fix you.
It won't solve your problems.
It won't make a sad person happy,
Or an insecure person secure.

But what it does?

It teaches you to trust.
It enables you to forget yourself.
It motivates you to continue.
(at least the real kind).

Thanks for experiencing this countdown with me.

Happy Valentines Day Friends.

I love what you pointed out! I think that so many people think that being in love with someone will solve their problems and insecurities... when really it is how you said! You have to love yourself first and foremost before you can fully love another person.

Thanks so much for doing this wonderful countdown! I enjoyed reading it every day!
