Passionate Rebel founder El-Amin Jumuah had the wonderful opportunity to connect with founder Brit Harley of the up and coming movement Love Is The Recipe. Brit Harley has alot of ambition and dedication to spreading love in every way. Her mindset and dedication to following her passion in showing love to her community is immensely dope!
How do we embrace love? How do we spread love? How do we pursue the things we love? Love shed its skin through both Interpersonal and Impersonal forms. How we as individuals display love says alot about a person. Generally, we are seeking love from others to make us happy. When we are living in the moment, we are already happy because the thoughts that would normally make us unhappy aren’t there. Since we are naturally happy when we are living in the moment, there is nothing we need or want from others. We can stop looking for others to make us happy… whether that is looking to them to love us, or just fill our needs. If there is nothing we want from others, then we are just free to love.
Our Meaning of Love:
There's no limit to loving individuals. Life is about spreading love to more than just our significant others or romantic partner. We tend to think that the meaning of love is to love one person. But truly, what is the meaning of love? The beautiful thing about love is that we don’t have to limit our loving to just our romantic partner or our family. We can share more with the world. We can love everyone we encounter. When we are present, we have nothing to fear, so we don’t have to create any boundaries about who can receive our love. As humans, we are guarded because to trust a person is one of the scariest things we can do. When we are with anyone without judging them in any way, we feel love for them. It doesn’t matter if this person is our spouse or our waiter in a restaurant.
The hope within Love:
Within loving yourself and others, we tend to hope for certain things. We hope that people will do the same for us as we do for them. We hope for certain things to be seen such as flaws, signs of change, sacrafice, compassion,or even dedication of a person. As a lover of all things in life, I know I've sacraficed certain things for the embetterment of others. Through my actions and words, I've conveyed and display my love and care for alot of people in my life such as my family, friends, and siginificant other. Sometimes you may feel like its not appreciated. You may not even understand why people respond the way that they do; but never let it change your outlook on love. They're billions of people throughout the world. Some of them deserve your full compassion, others may not. All in all, when you love, love hard.
