Thoughts on Love by Elizabeth from What I Love About Today

 Today you are lucky because we have the lovely Elizabeth from What I Love About Today sharing her thoughts on love! I love what she has to say and I hope you do too!

Also, on a side note...she is sponsoring a giveaway on my blog...soon...and you will freak out at what she is giving away!!! Just saying; it is kind of awesome. Now read on!
Well, hello there fellow Sloanbook readers!
My name is Elizabeth and I blog at What I love About Today
I was tickled pink when Ashley asked me to do a guest post.

My blog is all about finding love in my everyday life. 
Often times, I find it in the simplest of things.
Since Valentine's Day is so near, and I enjoy talking about it,
I thought I would talk about love

I just started working as a teacher, 
and one of the first things I realized about young children
 is how willing they are to love others so unconditionally.

I believe that as we get older that ability to love grows.
 While we may not be as open to loving all those we meet, 
we have the ability to love in a much deeper way. 
I met my husband three years ago. 
I loved him then, so much so that I married him. 
After these three years that love had grown exponentially.
 As I'm sure it will continue to grow in the future.

The older I get, the more I realize that true love is unselfish.
 As a child we love those who took care of us. 
As adults we learn that we love the people that we are serving the most. 
That could be our husbands, boyfriends, children or anyone else for that matter.

I believe that love is much like anything in life, 
we get out of it what we put into it. 
If we are willing to work hard and sacrifice to bring others love,
 chances are that love will be given back to you.

I hope you have a happy Valentine's Day!
And that you will have increasing love in your life.

Question from me: 
How can you increase your love for someone?
I think we all have room for improvement, so...what are your thoughts?
Happy Valentines Day Eve!!!

xoxo
