What's Love Got to Do With It

Love, sweet love.... the same love that creates fear, and then allows us to overcome it.  The same love that rocks our world, then breaks our heart.  The very love that makes us blissfully happy and then lost and hopeless. When we feel that love, we are happy...  people skip, hum, do things with the slightest of ease, and breeze by all shiny and new... smiles are sure to follow... as The Beatles say, "all you need is love."  There have been many studies done on happiness that show that no matter what people's end goal is in life, their motivation in having it is generally because they think it will make them happy.  Which me leads me to the question... when it comes to happiness... and what's love got to do with it?

Buddha says, "There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way." Well if happiness is the way... I say that love is the thing that keeps you moving.  So many times I've heard people wanting love, seeking love... but from my experience love can only be experienced, not held... it is not a noun, (for those of you who don't play madlibs, a noun is a person, place or thing), but a verb, (again, just incase, a verb is an action:-).  We cannot expect anything to make us happy, we can only do things which keep us happy.  When we look as it as a noun and try to hold it, we stand still, and often lose that love, as well as our happiness... but when we keep the wheels turning on the love train, we keep moving along on our happy way :-)

Today's Silver Lining
"What's love got to do, got to do with it, What's love but a sweet old fashioned notion, What's love got to do, got to do with it, Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken." What's Love Got To Do With It- By Tina Turner
