A YBP LOVE POST

THE FUTURE OF LOVE ❤️

The most powerful force in the entire universe. Love.

And yet, when we look around and marinate ourselves in global news, we read, we hear, we see a plethora of disturbing violence and destruction. An inundation of doom and gloom.

Then, we begin to wonder, “Does Love really have a future?”

But when you shoot that dark-colored question to people of the Light, you instantly see a world of hope. A ray of beaming smiles. A totally bright future for Love.

These are the very people I celebrate my life with. Theirs are the voices that I listen to. For their messages of Love resonate deep within my soul. 

Yes, I stay most grateful for my Beloveds. My nieces, my nephews, my Godchildren.

They are THE FUTURE OF LOVE!


NICKY, 5 ❤️

Love is mommy, daddy, ate and me. I love my mommy and daddy so much. Daddy is my hero and mommy is my best friend.

CASEY, 7 ❤️

Love is a warm, happy feeling that I get when I am with my family or friends. Love can help me in my future because it gives me inspiration to be a better person. I show my love to my family by being a good kid like being obedient and respectful to them.

GABE, 10 ❤️

Love is a feeling where one person is attracted to another person. Love can help you learn from your old mistakes. I show love by caring for my friends and family. I also help them.

TIGER, 11 ❤️

Love is caring for someone. Helping. Appreciation. Being a better person. I show my love by helping my parents in house chores. Getting good grades.

LIAM, 12 ❤️

Love is like a tree..when it falls apart, love breaks. Love can help me through the love and support of my family. Their love can give me a better future. I can show my love to my family by protecting them all the way.

NATHAN, 13 ❤️

Love is having a deep affection towards someone you’re comfortable with. Love will make you grow not only to become a better person, but a person who values their relationships. You just have to show respect and discipline to your family. That is the simplest way to show your love to them.

NIGEL, 13 ❤️

Love is a strong affection for a person. Love helps me keep doing what I want and it prepares me for something bigger. I can show love by helping others and communicating with them.

NICOLE, 14 ❤️

Love is learning and growing and showing appreciation towards the people you care about. When it comes to love, there will be good and bad things—but that’s okay. I can learn from each of the things I might do whether it be good or bad and apply that in the future so that I know what needs to be done and what I should stop/avoid doing. Love comes in all forms—friendship, family, romantic, etc. But for each, the one thing I can do is show the people around me that I do care by helping them whenever something goes wrong and willingly use my time to prioritize and spend time with them.

CHILI, 15 ❤️

For me, Love is an emotion that does not only allow you to empathize with others, but connect and understand others on a deeper level. Love is what causes multiple emotions in you all at once because of the immense feelings Love can give you. Love will help me shape my future because I know it will allow me to understand my emotions better through the experiences I go through with the people that I continue to and stop loving. I can show Love by having proper communication with others and using kind and encouraging words. Nowadays, we use social media as a means to receive compliments and understand “Love”, yet we forget that simple Face-to-face communication can be more intimate…

DRAKE, 15 ❤️

Love is something that they cannot take away from you. The love I receive from my parents is something I am born with. Love can help me feel better whenever I get low grades in school. The love and support I get helps me to try harder in school and become a better person. I can show my love to my family by giving them good grades. This makes them happy and proud of me.

JEWEL, 16 ❤️

For me, love is giving someone (or even yourself) all the respect and all hope they need. That means that although you may not always agree with them, you still acknowledge their feelings, and sometimes they may make mistakes, but you still care for them despite that. For self-love, it means loving yourself although you yourself know that you’re not perfect. You give yourself time and space to grow. Love can help me in many ways – it can be where I find motivation and hope, and it can also be the one to help me find the purpose of my life. Love doesn’t always have to be romantic, it can come in many shapes and forms, some of them so diverse that it surprises you! I genuinely believe that love is felt in the simplest things – being kind to strangers, helping others with small mundane tasks, it genuinely makes people feel valued and makes them feel real love!

RIANNA, 18 ❤️

Love is when you give a special part of you to someone/something without expecting anything in return. For me, it is as simple as being there for my friends, spending time with my family, and thanking God for my blessings. Love can go in many ways as long as it is from the heart. When we learn to love, we also learn how to see everything with love. We become positive even if we are given the most difficult situations. We treat people with kindness even if they are full of hatred. Futures depend on how we treat our present. As mentioned, when we love, we see things positively. Life can be tough at times, but we can always choose to overcome it. For me, simple things can really go a long way! Love does not have to be buying flowers for your partner, it could also mean asking the person how he/she is. It does not have to be giving the most expensive bag to someone, it could also mean saying “I love you” to your mom every night before bed. Like what was mentioned above, love can be anything as long as it is from the heart. Spread the love!

ARIANNE, 18 ❤️

Love is completely unconditional. It has no conditions. When we truly love someone, we can’t stop loving them, regardless of what they do or say. Love is selfless. True love doesn’t want anything in return, because there is nothing it needs. We just love for the sake of love. When we love someone, we don’t look for them to fill our needs, love us back, and all those types of things.

DARI, 18 ❤️

LOVE is a feeling of comfort, a feeling to be vulnerable and to let go of inhibitions and the borders one builds up with a certain person; to truly be yourself and in the moment with no fear of judgment or hate. Furthermore, LOVE is a willingness to sacrifice, to give up comfort, time and effort to help to those who need it the most and to those who you love. LOVE can help shape my future as I believe it gives a sense of selflessness and charity to the person who practices it. And virtues like that truly help one excel in the future whether near or far. In the concept of making LOVE more real for others. I truly believe that the only way to do that is to have that love deeply rooted within yourself, for it to be firm and steady like a sycamore tree. Because of the fact you cannot genuinely give what you, yourself do not have. So to make LOVE more real for those you intend to share it with, you must learn to truly fall in love with yourself.

MARTIN, 20 ❤️

Love is being there for someone through thick and thin. It can help my future because I know that I have my friends and family who love me and I feel more confident because of that. Always give back the same love that people give to you.

DIEGO, 21 ❤️

Love is a choice. A choice to be selfless, to think about something or someone before yourself! The easiest way love can shape my future is by allowing it to take control of my life. If I allow myself to choose to put others before me, I have already fulfilled life’s greatest mandate–to serve others without expecting anything in return. How do I show my love? Simple, by making sure that I choose them every single day. It’s easy to say that I love my parents or my friends.

REGGIE, 22 ❤️

Love is a feeling towards someone you care for. Love is what makes life beautiful, without love, life will have meaningless chapters. Loving someone is unconditional. You don’t love a person because you need something, you love someone because it is eternal and that is how it will shape your future, by being with the person you will love for a lifetime. Spread love and smiles instead of hate and insecurities!


And so, if at any point in time, you begin to wonder about the future of Love, just look within and find the answer.

YOU are LOVE.

YES.

YOU are THE FUTURE OF LOVE. ❤️

Great news! I’m into gluten-free food too! With you as my special guest, your wish is my command. So I’ll order from any restaurant of your choice. (I don’t cook, haha!)

2.    What is your favorite place to unwind?

My mind. I love my rich inner world. It takes me to so many amazing places all the time.

3.    What is your favorite animal and why?

I love the eagle. It’s got amazing vision, strength, discipline, and perseverance. But above all, it’s fearless.

4.    Where would you like to go on your next vacation?

Would love to return to Europe with my hubby.

5.    Read a book or watch a movie?

Oh, I so love movie dates! It allows for greater romance and sharing of the viewing experience.

6.    If you could, would you like to travel in space?

Hmmm …. I never aspired to be an astronaut. I love admiring God’s awesome creation, and that definitely includes the universe, from a personally comfortable vantage point. Feet planted comfortably here on earth, haha!

7.    Beach or mountains and why?

Beach! I love the sound of the waves crashing to the shore. I love watching the sun kiss the horizon before it dozes off to sleep. And I don’t mind doing that with a wide-brimmed hat and a margarita, haha!

8.    What is your favorite music?

Hands down …. worship music! Totally my music. I love both the reflective melodies and lyrics …. and the upbeat rhythms and victorious messages.

9.    What is your favorite snack?

I love pastries in general. Although, I attempt to reach out for more healthy choices. Sliced apples, carrots, cucumbers would be my preference when I’m in my “healthy zone”.

10.    How do you like to celebrate your birthday?

I love to celebrate my special day with my family …. I’m not one for extravagant parties and fanfare. The more an occasion is closer to my heart, the more I love for it to be intimate.

11.    If Jesus knocked on your door to visit, what would you think?

Oh I would be most blessed. Beyond words. Candidly, I’m not sure if I would fall to my knees in reverent worship or embrace Him like a little girl. Not sure if I would verbalize all my praise and hallelujahs or if I would even be awestruck and speechless. One thing’s for sure, though. I would never want Him to leave.

A YBP LOVE POST, ALL YBP LOVE POSTS

I’M IN LOVE WITH A MARRIED MAN. ❤️

I’m in love with a married man. Silence. There. I admitted it to my husband. There was no denying it. He had to know. For our 22 years together, he deserved to know.

It all started when I saw how similar this mystery man was to my husband. And yet even more strikingly, how different he was altogether.

I met my husband one precious day. It was comfortably warm with a burst of sunshine. The funny thing is, little did I know then that an awesome blessing was rushing my way. I wasn’t ready for the sunshine that was going to explode and overtake me. Oh my heart. Oh my head.

I was conducting a corporate team building workshop and ….. yup, just like that famous scene in a romance film, time stood still when I saw him flash his most infectious, heart-melting smile. The one that made the sun shy away. And his eyes, they beamed along, as they looked my way. Woot woot! Sparks were all over the place! Could you tell that by then I was already gravitating towards him? I found him so handsome, so cute, so endearing, so irresistible.

As we went through the workshop, in his charming quiet confidence, he shared some rich insights. He wasn’t soft-spoken, but he didn’t sound his views blaringly either. He was just so cool. He was just so natural. There was an effortless manner about him. That’s it! That was the clincher. I was drawn to his intelligence and his humility at the same time. As he was feeling his way through the workshop, I sensed that he wasn’t even aware of how amazed I was with his sharp wit and humor.

As love stories would have it, he was likewise magnetized to me and my sunny, effervescent personality. Or is that my biased version of the story? Haha!

So what’s all the fuss about the sun? Well, we loved the warmth and friendly conversations we carried. It’s as if we knew each other forever. Ease. Lots of happy ease. Free from trying to be people we weren’t. There was simply a natural flow in our dynamic and yet, it was charged with exciting electricity. Engaging energy. It felt like a majestic interplay of yin and yang.

These joyous, vibrant, and down-to-earth colors resonate so deeply with my soul to this very day. And that’s the similar road that led me to this mystery man. He makes me feel so happy, so comfortable, so special, so at home. He reminds me so much of the love who stole my heart decades ago.

And yet, as I spend more time with him, he also opens my eyes to a totally new amazing world. He shows me various facets of life that I’ve never ever seen in my earlier years of marriage. He’s just so different from the man that I married. And that’s what makes him so attractive too.

This mystery man has the boldness of a lion. Nothing fazes him. He reminds me that there is always a solution to every problem. He has the vision of an eagle. He is so situationally aware. He knows what’s happening in the world…. even more impressively, in my world. He keeps himself well-informed so that he can make sound judgments. He is passionate about the future. He has the wisdom of an owl. He is quite insightful and abundant with ideas. He challenges my mind. He sees what systems or processes can be improved and is never shy to air his suggestions. He has the tenderness of a puppy. When he is with me, and we are in our own world, he embraces me and snuggles up to me. And that, I love with much fervor. He has the speed of a cheetah. There’s never a dull moment with him. He maps out our adventures and is an architect at compartmentalizing his time. I’m blown away with his many achievements and accomplishments. He works hard. He plays hard. He lives life. He loves life. He has the commanding presence of a shark. He loves me fiercely and intensely. He circles me and readily defends me at the onslaught of any attack. He always protects me with all his might.

Ahhh! The more I think about his qualities, the more I fall deeply, madly, indescribably in love with this mystery man.

It’s been so overwhelming lately, though. My thoughts. My feelings. My sanity. My core. Until guilt totally consumed me one night. I had to finally confess my budding romance with this mystery man. I had to finally break the silence …. and the noise within me. I had to finally tell my husband.

So what’s the point of it all? There is, in fact, a powerful point. For this may speak volumes to some people out there who may feel “trapped” in their marriages.

You see, I am no longer the same woman that my husband married years back. And neither is he the same man with whom I exchanged marriage vows. We both have changed. Vastly. We both have evolved. Vastly.

And so, that fateful night, I finally introduced my husband to this mystery man.

At the dinner table, as we were about to have our cheese platter, I started fidgeting. Awkwardness filled the room. I was waiting for him to ask me about the “important announcement” that I had been dying to make. But he simply sat there. Silent.

It wasn’t going well. To think that it had panned out earlier in my mind. So, I finally mustered the courage to speak. I dove into his eyes and tried to make a meaningful connection. Then slowly, I reached out for his hand and gave him a mirror. With a quizzical look, he asked if it was all a joke. I was uncharacteristically expressionless. Then, after a few seconds, I cajoled him into looking at the mirror.

A smile peeked from his face. And a smile peeked from mine. I raised my glass to him and finally blurted out my “confession”.

“Yes, I’m in love with a married man …….. And that married man ……. is YOU ……. CHEERS HONEY!!! I love you always and forever!”

Wow the sweetest, most delicious relief filled the air. Our wine glasses clinked playfully and we both burst into happy laughter. Oh, and we had the grandest night of all! ❤️

I’M IN LOVE WITH A MARRIED MAN.
