100 Words on Love, by Jamie Utt
If there’s anything I know about love, it’s this: love is an act of will that’s at once endlessly selfless and powerfully selfish.
Love is an act of will, a choice that I must make in every moment to extend myself for my own well-being and the well-being of others.
Endlessly selfless: always working to meet the needs of those I love before my own. Powerfully selfish: always prioritizing the self care and self love that enables me to love outwardly.
Knowing is one thing. Practice is a different matter entirely.
