"Oh I just need more."

A good job.
A good life.
Good friends.
A good family.
A strong faith.

Let's say you have all of this and so much more.
Or let's say you don't have it but let's pretend you do.

I've noticed something.
I've noticed that, we as humans, when we get comfortable we want more.

A good paying job, "oh I need a better paying job."
A good significant other, "oh there's just something missing."
A good EVERYTHING, "oh I just need more."

I'm not saying that you should settle for less and nor am I saying that life is perfect but sometimes, just sometimes, we should take some time to appreciate the good things in life AS THEY COME.
What's with the rushing around?
What's with the heavy sighing?
What's with the "needing" more? (side note: there's only one person in this world that knows what we need, therefore this "needing" turns into WANTING!!)

More money.
A faster car.
A bigger house.
A better job.

We want it all in one day without realizing that one day we might have it all or, maybe just maybe, it may all be taken away from us because just as fast as it came it can go away.

Love & summer kisses!

Theres nothing like a GOOD man.

For such a long time I wrote about all the love gone wrong in my life.
Even in the midst of wrong love I knew that one day beautiful love was going to barge into my life, sweep me off my feet, send me hurtling towards the stars, and keep me locked in its formidable embrace for the rest of forever. Yes, I'm that big of a hopeless romantic!

I very much appreciate the man I have by my side. This isn't about boasting, it's about recognizing that good men do exist. It's about being thankful for all the bad love I encountered because my man is unlike any other love I've ever had.
I thank God for him, for this beautiful love, yet I always believe I never thank him enough.
He always ceases to amaze me by loving and respecting me the way he does.
This man elevates me in every sense of the word.
I can't wait to spend the rest of forever with him.
I love you baby! (he reads my blog!!)

I write.

I write because writing doesn't judge me.
I write because writing waits on me hand and foot.
I write because writing listens intently to what I have to say.
I write because writing reads between the lines.
I write because writing knows what I have to say before I even say it.
I write because it's the only right of passage I have.
I write because my fingers can process my thoughts better than I can.
I write because writing so eloquently establishes what I feel.
I write because if I held it in I would probably go insane.
I write because it heals me.
I write because it soothes me.
I write because it calms me.

Writing wraps me up in such a formidable embrace, one I can't fathom to let go of.
It makes me feel safe, guarded, trusted, HEARD.

What do you mean "you don't know" ?!

Excuse my hiatus! Life wrapped me up & wouldn't let me go :)
Anyways on to my post!!

You: "Why do you love me?"
Him/Her: "I just can't explain why..."

Or something of that sort..
This is complete & total bullshit & I just realized it right at this instant.
If the person you're with can't tell or explain to you why they love you, simply put, the don't love you or share mutual feelings.
I'll tell you why I feel this way.

When you ask a professional why they love what they do, they tell you.
When you ask a child why they love a certain game, they tell you.
When you ask your mom why she loves a certain dish your grandmother makes, she'll tell you.
If you ask your dad why he loves sports so much, he'll tell you.
If I ask you why your best friend is your best friend, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to tell me.
Trust me I can go on and on and on and on and on and on about this.

In my past relationships every time I was asked this question I had the same answer: "I don't know why I love you *insert cliche quote here*" hence why none of them worked out because that's exactly what was going on. I DID NOT have a clue about why I loved the person I was with.

Today, at this very moment, if you ask me why I love my boyfriend I can give you millions of reasons why I love him without hesitation. Don't ever be deceived by this question! If someone asks you this question & you don't have an answer other than the above or the other way around, some evaluating needs to happen.

'Till the next time dolls! XO!
