A Lot Like Love

by Sylvia Ford-George

Ahhh. That’s the sound of a life lived in peace, harmony, comfort, and tranquility. It’s a life lived without worry or fear or anguish or shade or hatred or animosity or jealousy or envy. It’s the place where havoc and weapons and words and evil formed against you go to die. It’s the place where we want, hope, wish, grow to be.

Ahhh. It’s your happy place—no matter what’s going on around you. It’s where you want to live—not just visit. It’s how you want to be 24/7—not just every now and then. It’s where you want to reside—no matter the city, state, neighborhood, or size of abode. Ahhh is what you want to encourage—at home, at work, at play, with everyone you know…including you. Ahhh is what you want to see, feel, hear, taste, smell, think, breathe, do—every single moment, of every single day.


Ahhh won’t cheat, won’t lie, can’t steal or kill. Ahhh is trustworthy, ethical, dependable, honest. Ahhh educates, explains, edifies, trains. Ahhh doesn’t judge, criticize, condemn or reject. Ahhh supports, admires, appreciates and respects.


Ahhh is a lot like love. It awaits you. Live it, breathe it, engage it, wear it, share it. Make ahhh the soundtrack of your life and never let it go.
