Love is the only true adventure

We love because it's the only true adventure.

— Nikki Giovanni

The American poet, Nikki Giovanni, struck a true chord when she penned, “We love because it’s the only true adventure.” The truest adventure is opening your heart to another, rather than hiding it in a safe box under lock and key. After all, falling in love is not for the faint of heart. It takes a special kind of courage to entangle your heartstrings with another’s and wander hand in hand into an unknown future together. Every unknown involves an element of risk, but daring to love has the utmost risk. It meas trusting your heart to another in hopes that they will give you theirs in exchange. Everyone knows love can be unpredictable. There is no map to pull out and examine when you get lost. There are twists and turns and you never know where the road will lead next or if it will suddenly and abruptly end. However, the reward of the journey is invaluable and infuses meaning into life like all great adventures do.
