How To Fall In Love With Life

Reminders amid a bitter world

Idiosyncrasies. Those quirks, those many wonderful small things that make up a person. You know you love someone when you love their idiosyncrasies, even the more agitating ones. You remember them, celebrate them, and see how unique those details are.

It’s often difficult to see anything good in the world. We wake up to listen to dire news of animosity spreading rapidly everywhere. In addition to global issues, there are personal ones. Things happen. Life is unpredictable. Changing our own lives can be strenuous, let alone the world.

So how do you fall in love — or keep the love you have — with life? Exactly how you love others: idiosyncrasies. On the days where the world seems to be falling apart, where you’re sick of a mundane routine, or where life just seems like an endless series of exhausting events, you remember the details. The small, yet monumental aspects of being alive.

I’m going to give you a list of life’s details. There may be some that are not applicable, and many more that are, for this is subjective.

These are in no particular order:

  1. Sunsets and sunrises.We begin and end the day with paintings in the sky.

These are just a few of life’s idiosyncrasies to remember. There are many, many more little things.

Even in the constant change, the big and little moments, the uncertainty, the torment occurring around the world, there is consistency in the details. Recognize and appreciate them, for they are the key to falling in love with life.
