Love…we’ve all got our own interpretations to that particular word. In my mind, love is felt. An emotion felt for someone or perhaps something. It’s a feeling that makes one feel warm, tender and jittery on the inside. A truly one of a kind sensation. 

Contentment...knowing for certainty that you don’t need to hear the exact words “I love you” on repeat. But to know, that you are in fact loved. 

Affection…the secret way of ‘love’ showing itself in physical form. For those that believe actions speak louder than words. 

It’s everywhere and anywhere, just listen and look for it.
