Romance is theory

“Romance is theory, love is practice” | Arjun’s blog

I thought this was a beautiful encapsulation of how love – the real thing – takes work.

While written with partners in mind, this is equally applicable to how we deal with ourselves and to ideas that we get excited about.

It is easy, for example, to get excited about a new year resolution. But it takes a lot more than that excitement to put in the work. Every single day for 365 days.

Romance is “easy come, easy go.”

The work begins when we commit to the practice.

It is why love – of any kind – is hard. And powerful.
