Brrr!

Wow, it has been cold lately! It’s hard to believe that we have another two more months before summer is over. This weekend was chilly with yesterday being the coldest day of summer so far at a high of 60!! This cool weather makes me want to just crawl into bed and cuddle with the love.

I Carry Your Heart With Me

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear, and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling i fear)

no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)

70 Little Ways You Can Tell That Someone Loves You

These are so true. 🙂

Thought Catalog

This cannot come without a big disclaimer: this is not all-encompassing nor universally true and obviously not every single one of these will apply to someone. They are just some ideas, and personal experiences, of the times we think to ourselves, wow, they really do love me.

1. They bring your favorite dinner home by surprise just because.

2. They tell you they like the little things about you, meaning they notice the little things about you.

3. They don’t fight dirty.

4. You say you want to stay in and watch Netflix in bed and they couldn’t be happier to sit next to you and do nothing but that.

5. When you come home from work and you’re happy because you had a great day, they’re all smiley and happy too.

6. You’re okay with being around each other all the time… actually, you want to be.

7. They…

Where To Go From Here?

As I wrap up my second year of service, I ask myself, “Where do I go from here? What else is next?” Each day my work space becomes more and more bare, my mind more and more blank. I am so zoned out right now, so ready for the next thing, the next adventure of my life. Only one more month left, so long yet to go but still so soon.

I worry and wonder about the next path that I will go on and how to get there. The job hunting hat goes on, the resumes are polished, the cover letters are edited. I look at job positions and wonder if that is the direction I want to go in and what I’m going to do with myself. Sigh. Lots of job applications will be going out this month.

Loving Beyond Boundaries

When the caged bird is free, she can enjoy the freedom of being outside and unhindered by walls and chains. She looks at her life from a different perspective, now being on the outside looking in on what her life used to be. The wind upon her breast feels different. The sun beaming on her is warmer, brighter. The world radiates in a way it never did before, in a way she never knew it could before.

I was this bird. Stuck in a relationship that was going nowhere with a guy that did not love or appreciate me as I did him. What’s worse is that he clipped my wings by making me feel inferior in everything I did and did not do and even today, he continues to lower my self-esteem by pointing out all my faults and how our relationship fell apart because I was to blame. But that all doesn’t matter anymore because I have escaped that cage. I have found someone who is not an owner but a mate. He does not possess nor does he lead. Instead, he is present, always there alongside me when I turn around, ready to hold my hand to support me or to give me a little push in the direction I need to go.

Not good enough is now more than enough. Conditions melt away and you, yourself is good enough for him. Passion now lies in place of aggression. To be happy means just simply you and him. What makes you happy is what he wants to do. The bed head, the sweaty self after a long day in the hot sun working out, the make up less face, the casual, tomboyish clothes do not bother him for you alone are enough.  It all does not matter because he loves the heart of you. He loves you and the essence of you. As long as he knows you are there, all he has to do is stare into your eyes for everything else is of mere significance.

You can tell when a guy is pretty crazy about you and I can sure tell he’s pretty crazy about me. Loving without boundaries, conditions or measures. This is how it should be. This is when you know it’s worth being present and invested. He is what makes the battle worth fighting for.

Yes, I never knew the world could radiate like this before but I’m glad I know now.
