Words Can Mean So Much

I recently have grown quite fond of someone…but it is a very complex situation with more angles and turns than a maze. In evaluating myself and my feelings for him I began to ask myself “What do I want out of life and love?” In asking that question, I realized some words that mean a lot to me. I won’t list out all of their definitions, but they each were significant enough to make my list. My beau often asks why I care so much…and sometimes I don’t think he sees the beauty that lies within him. We haven’t made any type of commitment to each other, but he means so much to me and often it is hard to put my feelings to words. But just in case he is reading this…know that you have a very special place in my heart and with each passing day it grows.

My Words
Adoration
Courage
Faith
Love
Motivation
Passion
Reciprocity
Sacrifice
Simple
Strength 

My favorite of these words is Love. I think it can be simple, it can be passion filled, it has to be reciprocated in order to count and it takes so much courage…to love. I think most of my life I have been blinded by what I thought was love…but now I know that many of my relationships have been filled with many things, but never filled with love.

In order to love someone else, we must first love ourselves. After all, if you aren’t comfortable with you, how can anyone else be? With love comes sacrifice. The ultimate display of love {and sacrifice}…For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life [John 3:16]. What a sacrifice! I am guilty of always wanting things to go my way…sometimes at any cost. I am learning and growing daily. But, you don’t get paid if you don’t do any work…and love is work. I am now not only able, but willing to put in the necessary work. When it is time…if it is meant to be it will be. Until then, I will continue to enjoy this journey that we are on…and I pray that we are able to fulfill its purpose.
So…what do I want out of life? 1. I want to show God that I am grateful for His ultimate sacrifice and reciprocate that love. Being more like Him and less like me. 2. Love. Unyielding love. Eyes wide open love. 3. Success. There's more but I'll stop at 3.

What do I want out of love? Happiness, a love that is all mine, honesty, friendship, devotion, adoration…Simply, Love.

I realize that life {and love} will have ups and downs…but I think if you share life {and love} with the person that God made just for you…it will always be worth it. We should always make sure we love someone worth receiving our love and in turn that we are {in fact} worth loving.
Below is one of my favorite love songs…Love is You by Chrisette Michele. Dedicated to all who have found love and all that are still on the quest for love.



To all that take the time to read my blog, I thank you…and I love you!

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
