In light of the Grammy’s last night, I actually have some questions with regard to how we look at love sometimes.  I don’t know if it’s all the time, however, do you sometimes feel that the way you feel about love and the way that you love is sometimes influenced by what you hear in songs?  I would have to admit that sometimes I would have to say that ‘yes’, I believe I have been influenced by how certain artists portray attraction, relationships, and their definition of love, however, I don’t know if I would agree with them 100% of the time.

I think when it comes right down to it, there are many ways that people encounter, respond/react, appreciate love.  I am learning (EVERYDAY) that these ways do not always match my views of love, and it certainly doesn’t always satisfy me the way some people look at love.  I don’t have a particular song…ok, I lied, I have a song by Liz Longley that hasn’t been released yet, and I know I posted one of her songs a few days back.  She does something interesting with her new album and I think a few musicians have done this in the past; they have differing aspects of love that they like to share with fans.  For me, it’s helpful if things are consistent, especially with love, but HOW we love I think has to be mixed up and changed quite often, otherwise it may get stale on us!

Challenge for my subscribers/readers/friends/family:  Take this week in particular to listen to some of your favorite love songs as well as some newer “never listened to songs” and check out their ideas of love.  Are you influenced toward seeing love their way in some aspects?  Do you already easily understand how they look at love from each particular song?  Are you completely opposed to love songs? 😉
