The process, not the goal

Loved the quote embedded in this post…

By looking at “love” as a goal instead of a process, we are set up for despair and failure.

I hear people saying that they want to “be in love.” So, my question is: once you’re there, then what? We all want love, and to be loved. But, we should think of love as a garden–for it to be beautiful, it has to be tended to, or it’ll be overrun with weeds.

Love is a conscious effort.
