“I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.”
     — Arthur Rubinstein

It may sound simple, but many truths are just that — simple, but profound.

What kind of day will you have today?

Will you struggle against life, or will you open your arms and embrace it?

If you love life, life will love you back.

Loving life is not always an easy thing to do.  Just like people do, life can sometimes challenge our love.  It is easy to love the person who agrees with us, who has loved us first, who has the same values, who makes the same choices, who has our best interest at heart.  It is more challenging to love the person who disagrees, who stands at a distance, who has offended us, or who does not love us back.  Loving life has similar challenges, but the rewards for loving are great.  Choose to love life today and sooner or later you will see that life has loved you back.

If you encounter nothing but smooth sailing, you will overflow with joy.

If you face adversity, you will learn how strong you are.

If you encounter hatred, you will see how powerful love can be.

If you encounter sorrow, you will see how love can make your heart strong.

If you meet with fear, you will see how love can give you courage.

Life is filled with infinite experiences, challenges, sorrows, and joys.  We can struggle against them, or we can open our arms wide and embrace it all.  When we take in life and embrace it whole-heartedly, we discover the simple truth that life will love us back.
