When you fall in love, and another falls in love with you, love does not end there. Love is like a study; a childhood profession you grow up wishing for your entire life. The flower you nuture from a seedling- caring, pruning, studying, attending to it every day. Even though you graduate, applying yourself to the field, you soon learn that you are ever the student constantly learning the undiscovered parts of your valued trade. Love requires enthusiasm, diligence, observation, sacrifice, patience, understanding, commitment, insight, positivity, initiative, imagination, confidence, respect, and yes…even suffering, sometimes. For true love, like the weather, it's all consuming and ever shifting. Years of bounty may come to face a sudden drought. Deserts can turn to fields of green; towns can be buried in blizzards, floods can bring destruction or prosperity, and a rocky and unstable start can blossom into a wondrous future. In time you may begin to understand its patterns; to prepare for the Winters and celebrate the Summers. To moonlight in the Falls and give thanks in the Springs. True love is a religion. It is the worship of your idol in life. The one you place above anything and everything. The one for whom you are able to share all moments of happiness, and cry in all moments of pain.
When you love, be the ultimate student. Study hard, apply yourself, and persevere through all troubles with only your successes in sight.
