What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Maybe this is why I adore falling -a little bit- in love with all the people around me. It gives me a chance to experience the world with their perspective; allowing me to gain infinitely many more perspectives than I ever could on my own.
In a way, I guess you can say it is like living a hundred different lives all at once. Falling in love has allowed me the pleasure to experience so much more than any one person could in a lifetime. Falling in love has allowed me to yield time; to morph it.
In a sense, falling in love has provided me with immortality. Falling in love is how I never feel the fear of time running out.
