Love and Happiness

Let love bind you both but let happiness fuel each of you.

I was always of the opinion that love and happiness go hand in hand. Years ago, that was all I believed in. However…i have grown older… and wiser and have come to understand that this pair of love and happiness do go hand in hand and they don’t. They exist on their own and off course together they become a beautiful symphony.

I was reminded very recently from an Instagram post about this very thought and have decided to blog about it. So.. let’s talk about love…the love between two people. We have all fallen in love. Remember all those butterflies and you can’t think straight kind of love… or the he gives me peace love…the one you will spend the rest of your life with kind of love….. So many different variations of love. We have all seeked it. We all want it. We all want love.

So now let’s talk of happiness… where does that come from? Does it come from the love that you seek or/and receive? Yes it does and it doesn’t. Stay with me now…. if we seek happiness from others or in others, we are going to end up feeling empty one day. Why? Because, true happiness comes from with in, it comes from being all that you can be, it comes from being honest with yourself and with those around you, it comes from living with no regrets…it comes from a place deep within.

If you are in love, don’t lose your self in it.. as your love evolves remember that you also evolve. If you are seeking love… stop and focus on you. Love will come because when you are happy from within you are all the more attractive, your personality will stand out. Do what you love, do what you care about.. live life for u and together u will be strong, independent people bound by love and fueled with happiness from within.

To love another we must first love our selves. To be happy together,we must first be happy our selves.

Finding Me

Look at you…

You are all grown up now..

Strong, independent, intelligent and passionate.

I knew you always had it in you.

You can go anywhere, become anything.

Don’t ever forget that you are wonderfully made.

I have watched you love and let go

And I know you feel alone.

We have always been connected

Life threw us apart, the universe brought us together.

So hold on.

You will always have me where ever you go.

Now that I have found you,

I promised myself that I won’t let you go.

Stripped to my Soul

I have not posted in ages. But here goes…

When you have been just going with the flow…. being complacent… it numbs so many parts of you and it also changes you unknowingly. But then, there is a restlessness that starts to build up inside.. you can’t put your finger on what is going on! I battled this restlessness, it has been a fight that I did not understand, I burried my self into my daily home routine. I had no clue from where or what this restlessness was until it broke me. I found myself not sleeping at night… the crazy headaches…. the sadness…. the tears….and I did not know why.

I have a family that I do love very much. So what was it that was making me so miserable? And then the day came, I did not want to wake up, to get out of bed, I wanted to stay under the covers and cry. Nobody knew the struggle I was facing.. what could I tell them? I have been a person carrying a smile around and had it all together.. a strong person.

Finally, I said it. I am broken. Broken inside. I am lost.

I went into myself…. my brain was being stubborn. It resfused to bow down to my heart’s sorrow. I could not find any answers there. Then it came upon me like a storm… It swept over me these feelings, desires, needs, goals. And that’s when I began to listen to my soul. A forgotten part… just ‘Me’. And I realised that I needed to please my soul….i have to nourish it… I have to love it a whole lot more for who she is…embrace all that she wants to be… All her dreams, her desires, everything.

So here I am, fully aware of myself. I am a whole lot of woman. I am exploding with energy from with in. I am taking baby steps. Only I can fuel the road ahead. Changes. It’s chaotic. But complacency, now that is the killer. Let’s live our lives, being true to our selves. Let’s not just go with the flow, do things like it’s always been done… remember that times change and situations change, you cannot expect to function the same way.

So live. Listen to your soul. Your heart is just afraid of being broken, don’t let it stop you. Your mind is influenced by your soul. So those butterflies that you feel in your belly when you want to make a change…. it’s a good thing. You have to believe in yourself, enough to know that it’s ok to fall, it’s ok to be disappointed, because it’s not going to be easy…. Change is going to be hard. So when you are ready to take that step….go ahead….. Make your move…..lean on somebody….if you can…. Be broken… feel low… it’s ok. You will rise… above everything that you have… everything… you will see all that you want to be…And you can start from there.

Until one day

Until one day,

He woke up never to feel any pain

The sun seemed to shine a little brighter

The air smelled fresh.

Until one day,

He no longer missed her smile

Did not long for her touch

Did not hear her voice in her head.

Until one day,

He decided to walk away

From the clutches of toxic waste and

Bow out with his dignity in tact.

Between You and I

Its been so long

I cant remember you

I look in to the mirror

I look into your eyes

I can barely remember you.

So much has changed

I am not the women that you remember

I am a wife and a mother

And now after so long I find myself searching for you

Only to find you standing behind me all along.

I shut you out and you understood.

You know that I will always be someone’s someone

And that I have always loved you

I have overlooked you

But now I see

Without you there is no me and

Somewhere between You and I is Me.
