note #91 : love, long days and even longer nights
A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face.
Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you.
When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful.
There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant.
Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you.
You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible.
You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.
Words by Bob Marley.
That, in my opinion, is the finest explanation of love.
The passage of time has been quite fuzzy in my memory lately, what with work and a family tragedy, and 24 hours aren't really enough — but then, this shouldn't stop us from creating and growing.
So here are few articles :
Hope recognises obstacles. It recognises challenges but believes they can be overcome. It acknowledges that growth is possible and setbacks are temporary.
Visualizing your goals can help you keep your mind on them and give you more drive to reach them. By picturing your goals, you can create a sense of excitement and expectation that can help you stay focused and committed to achieving them.
Training your mind to continually zero in on what you want is a key step in attracting the opportunity and resources you’ll need to make your dreams a reality.
Gratitude has a profound impact on our perspective. When we focus on what we are thankful for, we shift our attention away from negative thoughts and emotions. This shift in perspective can help us see the world in a more positive light and appreciate the good things in our lives.
Practising Gratitude Every Day Can Change Your Life. To start, set aside some time daily to think about what you must be thankful for. You can also write down your appreciation and reflections in a diary.
A few quotes that have been floating around in my head.
There is no crime in being lonely.
The darkest hours are just before dawn.
Pain is sometimes our drug of choice.
That’s it from me today, I just wanted to keep things light.
I'll see you in the next one!
