What We Can Learn From Jason Mraz

"It takes no time to fall in love... but it takes you years to know what love is."
- Jason Mraz, Life is Wonderful (which is a pretty cool song, check it out!)

That quote from that song has got me thinking. What IS love, and when, exactly, do you know what it is?
One thing's for sure : I've fallen in and out of love (or so I thought) more than once, and pretty quickly too. It's simple - you see some guy, (or girl, depending on who's reading this...)your heat starts beating super fast, and you can't tear your eyes away. For the next few days, weeks, or even months, you watch them from afar, longing that they would look your way. But, when they finally start liking you too, you meet someone else! BAM! Maybe the cycle starts all over again. Maybe someone breaks your heart. Maybe you realize that you don't even love the person you thought you loved. It's enough to make someone crazy!
I think this is what Jason was talking about. People are prone to falling head-over-heels instantly, but that's not love. With love-the real deal, the whole enchilada- you have to give it time to grow, and you have to give yourself time to learn what it is. It can't be taught to you.
Well, i guess that's it for my whole mooshy love speech... ha, I just wanted to elaborate on that quote and stuff. Whatever. xoxo till next time!
