In the spirit of Valentine’s day I decided to write this post to kinda remind us all that love does not have one definition and how we can find love and happiness in the most unusual places with the most random acts.
When I think of what love is to me, I am left with a fluster of thoughts, ideas and imagination. So because of that, I have decided to not think hard about this and to just let my thoughts and fingers be in sync. These are the things that make my heart flutter and give me occasional butterflies <3
Sometimes it is walking down the streets of London and just being overwhelmed by the mere fact that I am walking down the streets of London! And daydreaming of my other fave cities, Seoul and New York City!
Love is being caught off guard by a fabulous fashion find or finding vintage stores filled with rows and rows of trinkets of history. It also is gastronomical adventures that ignites my taste buds.
I find love in the bright smiles I receive from my ‘not so little’ little brother and the warm hugs from my baby brother. This warms my heart and for a fleeting second whatever worry I have just melts away!
Other times it is in the sound of my mother’s voice calling my name in an endearing manner especially on days when everything isn’t right!
It is the growing excitement of passing by trafalgar square on my way to the cultural centre that holds my dreams and stores my memories of joyful moments of past adventures.
Love is in the moments when someone puts in the effort to make my day a little bit more special by sending positivity, support and good karma my way. And in times when I bring a smile to someone’s face.
It is in the pages I lose myself in when I find a book too good to put down. At odd times it is in hearing a passing stranger speaking Korean or finding someone who loves Harry Potter or Gdragon or really any interest of mine as much as I do!
And sometimes, those special times, it is in the eyes, words, manners and presence of someone who holds a special place in my heart.
Happy Valentine’s Day <3
What is love to you?
