Life is Love

Life is love.

When I first came up with the idea for this blog, I was sitting with my mom in Cheesecake Factory rambling on about my thoughts on it and how I’m not really sure how I would answer what life is.

She immediately said, “Life is love.”

There is so many things I admire about my mom. There was a time when I moved out that I couldn’t delete any of her voicemails, so afraid that if something happened to her it would be all I had left when I needed to hear her voice. She is so strong, and captivatingly beautiful inside and out. One thing people always tell me, is that I open myself up so quickly, and that I get so curious and excited over the simplest things. I know this is a trait I have acquired from my mother, the sense of bewilderment for life and I’m thankful for it. I’m thankful for her, for sharing her light and love with me, and for supporting absolutely everything I could have ever wanted to do.

I couldn’t sum up my answer for what life is in three words, I just never thought it was that simple. So trying my best to understand what my mom could have meant, she was the first person that I interviewed.

What do you feel has shaped your belief in what life is?

“Having parents that were kind to me, becoming a mom at 19. Also, having the core belief that if you let yourself be an expression of love, things will unfold as they should.”

“What is an event in your life where you realized how valuable life is?”

My mom dying, and my youngest daughter getting sick.

How did your mom dying affect you?

“I couldn’t.. I was just trying to survive. I found my peace in knowing that everything would be okay. I had to be the love that my mother gave.”

If you could say one thing to everyone in the world what would it be?

“Okay, it’s not a quote of mine.”

That’s fine.

“There’s no doubt that the universe is unfolding exactly as it should.”
