1. I believe in Sunday mornings. The kind where you wake up too early in a still-slightly-drunk fog and lay in bed smiling as the one you love still sleeps.

2. I believe in iced coffee, and as many as you need to get through the day. But, it should always be the unsweetened kind that isn’t ruined by the yucky syrup.

3. I believe in real friendships. The kind that you’ve had since you were in Kindergarten. Also the kind that are built standing in the corner of a college apartment huddled around a bottle of cheap Barefoot wine.

4. And even though friendships are built around wine, I firmly believe that beer is better than wine, except when we’re talking about Sangria, which trumps just about everything. While on the topic of alcohol, it is worth saying that I also believe we only drink…

Love…

Standard

Whenever I hear a guy say…”she’s too wild, too much, too hard to figure out, too complicated, too intense, too emotional, too opinionated, or crazy”…I hear…”I’d a burned her ass at the stake back in Salem. She is too connected to the Goddess. I won’t be able to tame her. I won’t understand her. I won’t be able to keep her. She won’t need me. She is too powerful and won’t love the wounded parts of me.”

Au contraire, she will see the parts of you that you’re afraid of and love them anyway. A women unleashed will love you without every needing to change you. She will connect to you on a primal level, needing your body, succumbing to her inner fire, her passion and will rock your world. As a lover, she’ll not just make love to your body or heart, but to your soul. You will wonder how you ever called it living before you met her. She will piss you off and when you fight, it will suck. When you make up, you will realize you felt like you were dying as you thought of life without her, but she’s taught you of your strength and how your vulnerability makes you brave. She makes you realize you could survive anything, even losing her, because she taught you to believe in yourself. She will demand more of you and you will be glad she knew you had it in you all along. She will fiercely love you and teach you, nurture you and reach you, which at times make you uncomfortable. She will love the scared, little boy inside that you are afraid exists and acknowledging him makes you feel like the old you died, the one that lived a lie, that BS guy. That part of you that feels not good enough will come up to heal and she will see through your façade. She’ll push your buttons and make you reach for more within yourself. She will make you ask yourself questions, making you grow, and know way more you thought was even possible. She will challenge you and never will she be boring. She will excite you and infuriate you with her boldness, that she allows herself to just be all of herself, and not parts. Her tears will scare you and you will want to fix her, her problems, and the world. She will reassure you that this is one way she expresses herself and that it doesn’t mean weakness, that you can cry when you are angry, happy, sad, and for no reason at all. That tears are like an elixir for the soul, a catalyst for letting go, a signal of a change in energy. It will be a wild ride, an adventure that takes you to the edge of yourself.

Love a wild one. Let her bewitch you, entrance you, bedazzle you, seduce you, mesmerize you, enchant you, and let her free you..

“Close friends …

Quote

“Close friends are truly life’s treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone.”
– Vincent van Gogh –

Life and its absences.

Standard

Life is too ironic.

It takes sadness to know what happiness is,

noise to appreciate silence,

and absence to value presence.

I found that quote by unknown shared by one of my friends on facebook. I think it makes sense. But if you think about it, it also make sense in vice-versa.

These are some examples i found:
Heat is the absence of Cold,while Evil is the absence of Goodness.

From this, I believe that just like yin and yang,
everything needs its opposite to exist by the balance they creates to each other.
