Ok. So I’m kinda hype. This whole blogging thing is giving me a rush. I really couldn’t wait to write my second post. But first things first, there’s something you should know about me. I love music. But when I talk about music I’m not referring to the music you “twerk” to. I’m talking about that “feel-good” music. The kind of music that touches your soul. When I think about LOVE I think about one artist that conveyed the message so well: “Musiq SoulChild”. His neo-soul sound left me captivated. I made it my business to collect all of his albums. One of the albums titled, “Juslissen”, had a very special song. The track was “LOVE”. In my opinion he captured the true essence of what love is. To this day it is still one of my favorite songs. You’re probably wondering “Um why do we need to know this?” Well in order to want this thing called “Love” one must embody it’s full meaning. I mean LOVE is not something you buy in a store, you can’t order it online, it’s not waiting for you at your homegirls/homeboys house. It’s not found on your various social media sites but it’s something that comes from within. You can’t repost, retweet, reblog or pin this thing called LOVE. It’s a deep rooted emotion. A feeling. Sometimes referred to as indescribable, irresistible, powerful. It is the healer of all things. LOVE is where we seek refuge when are world is in disarray. It is where we seek warmth on the coldest of nights. Oh yeah, LOVE is something special! I would be a fool to give up on not having this feeling (again)! LOL. I felt that it was important for me to share with you what LOVE does for me. It makes me feel like I am on cloud 9! I have also learned in my adulthood to continue to surround myself with LOVE. The origin of my LOVE was first unveiled to me by my parents. My mother and father have always shown me what it is to love and love unconditionally. My father shows love through his actions. Always using terms of endearment when he says my name, always providing for me, making sure there was always food on the table. As a man from the island of Jamaica he never was a verbal person but nonverbally he always has made his love for me very clear. My mother, who is also from the island of Jamaica, has shown me LOVE in the morals she has instilled in me, always going the extra mile and making sure I have the best of EVERYTHING. She’s the first to give you her last and she is always there to lend a helping hand. I needed to bring you back to my foundation of LOVE so you can understand my connection with this beautiful thing. I make it my duty to be an example of LOVE. It’s in my walk, my talk, my actions, and most importantly, in my heart. I know God is taking his time in creating the LOVE that’s right for me. He has taken me through these experiences to sharpen my path of LOVE and for that I am forever greatful. They say, “You gotta find people who love like you do”. I couldn’t agree with this statement more. Instead of worrying about a man who can match my “fly”, I have learned I need a man who will match my “LOVE”. ❤️
