Life isn’t exactly like the glossy romantic movies or fairy tales where one fine day,you stumble upon your soul mate- a statuesque picture of perfection,who sweeps you away from your feet, wins your heart all over and takes you out of your misery to a faraway place where you live happily ever after.
By now,we know well enough that it doesn’t work like that.But still, we long to find the perfect lover-Right from the looks to the character to the voice and manners and even the way he cares and loves-the picture of our ideal lover is fairly etched in our minds.
But there is never a perfect person,a perfect day,a perfect place,a perfect time or a perfect moment to fall in love.Love simply happens-the only difference is that sometimes it eventually materializes as time passes by and sometimes it happens in the slightest of moments-when you see a person and sparks fly all around.
That is love for you-it comes unannounced and has the ability and strength to stay as long as forever.Love is the biggest blessing we have,the biggest gift we can give and the biggest treasure that we own,which increases all the more when shared.It doesn’t come with a price tag but is still precious,it doesn’t come with terms and conditions but is still required to be handled with great care
.Love is the synonym of happiness and who doesn’t want happiness in life?So when life offers you love,don’t let it slip by.
Love is not about the perfect people and a perfect relationship-it is about imperfect people and a love that goes beyond perfection.As Jodi Picoult stated in My Sister’s Keeper,“You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.”
An ideal relationship is beyond materialism;one that is simple,sweet and surreal.If the happiness of the person who you love matters to you more than your own happiness,If your love grows deeper and stronger with every passing day,If you feel in your heart that finding the love of your life is the best thing that ever happened to you,If you know and understand that it is meant to be-then what more reasons you seek to make it last forever?
One doesn’t find love,love finds you.Let love find you,and when it does;don’t let it go.Whoever said that whatever happens,happens for good, was right in saying so.Even if you failed at making a relationship last,love will find you again-don’t shut yourself from all the happiness you deserve and can have.Don’t let go of people who love you simply because they don’t love you the way you want them to,because they still love you in their own way.
When love knocks at your door,don’t restrain with the hope of finding a better one
Because in the hope of finding a better one,you may have given away the best you could ever get.
And lastly, remember that life may not always turn out the way you wished it would,but it sure turns out good and what is exactly right for you.I wish you joy,happiness and love and above all,I wish you LIFE!!

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
