How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1806 - 1861
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace. [...]
Here are the top three things that make me the happiest tonight.
- A husband that loves me so dearly and will come home from work excited to take me out on a date night. Look at that man's beautiful face. There's nothing more beautiful to me in this world.
- Having a job that pays and one that I feel I am good at. There is something very fulfilling about finding satisfaction in your work. Whether that is your day job or following your dreams for nothing, find something.
- Having a passion beyond my day job: writing. Without the written word, and without my constant fuel and muse to write, I wouldn't likely be where I am today.
