All You Need is Love

Love is all around us. I was reminded of this last week after the tragic events that took place in Beirut and Paris. One photo that really moved me was of thousands of people gathered in the streets of Paris the day after the horrific and senseless attacks in the city. They were gathered to say "we are not afraid". To me this picture was a reminder that love conquers all, especially fear. 

Love is all I saw when I looked at that image of people gathered in Paris. It was a powerful image that made me reflect on love and it's meaning in my life. I always follow my heart in all I do and surround myself with it at all costs. I was filled with love this weekend and saw reminders of it everywhere I looked. I noticed seeing more heart shapes that usual (I love hearts and am always on the look out for them). I also noticed so many quotes about love: "Love is the answer", "All you need is love", "Love the life you live"... 

I can truly say that I love my life and love what I do. I am exactly who I want to be and happy with where I am in life. Last week was such a whirlwind of events for the world and in my personal life. But through everything I'm reminded even more that love is so important. It leads me to be the best me I can possibly be and to get though any obstacles thrown my way. Love has led me to completely transform my life, sense of fashion and style and helped me find the vintage me. I love every aspect of my life and am so thankful for the amazing people in my life. By following my heart I have made every change possible to put me in a place to be doing what I truly love. I'm so grateful for love!

What role does love play in your life? Are you doing what you truly love?
