Good afternoon! I am inspired, again, to write about true love because every store I enter has created an environment to entice our memory of love. Some people walking through will feel happiness and some will feel sadness. True love is a unique feeling. It’s the type of feeling you experience that you can measure every relationship against. It’s a feeling you share with one unique individual that you are drawn so strongly towards – like two powerful magnets connecting. A type of relationship that allows you to experience emotions so strong and so deep that it does not equate to any other emotion that you will be exposed to in your life – which is what makes it ‘unique’. I am not speaking of passing attractions or fixes to temporary urges because ‘true love’ in no way compares to such false emotions. ‘True love’ is authentic! ‘True love’ is so real that it makes you wonder if this ‘level of real’ is even possible – which is why some people feel like they are ‘simply dreaming’. ‘True love’ is very real! For those of you who have found ‘true love’ — you know what I mean by the way you look at each other and everything else around you becomes a blurrrrr; the way your hand feels so secure in theirs when they meet and your fingers lock immediately – like a piece of a puzzle that fits perfectly in place; the way you hug so tightly – because you never want to let go – that you actually forget, in that moment, that you ‘need’ air to breathe; the way you can detect their very voice in a room full of many loud voices; the way you stare at the cell phone after talking for hours – as if they are going to climb out of that tiny screen and jump into your arms; the way you can detect their very scent even if they were in a candle store with all the many fragrances colliding in the air; the way one word takes on a new meaning as a code that only the two of you can decipher; and oooh the way you kiss this particular person – it is more intimate than any other kiss you ever experienced – – each one feeling like your very first combined with the fear of it being you very last exudes deep passion — is so very intimate that the feeling lingers for hours, sometimes days, and, yes, sometimes years. Many people will only get to experience this once in their lifetime. A few are fortunate and get a second chance, or even a third – but it is hard for me to believe that one would get many chances because this experience is so unique that these two people want to feel this way forever – which is why they invest time, patience, and whatever is necessary to nurture such a unique experience to never lose it. Many of us are so busy or distracted that we, sadly, allow it to pass-on-by! To those of you who have never experienced true love, my heart aches for you because this is the type of emotion that leaves an everlasting imprint on your heart – one that I feel everyone should have the opportunity to experience at least once in their lifetime. For those of you who let this unique love slip through your fingers – I say do not give up on love! For those of you who fear letting someone know that you feel any of these emotions in their presence – I encourage you to be brave enough to share it because you lose less when you share ‘real love’ – try looking at your fear from this positive point of view – even if you get rejected, you will feel love in your own heart from the courage you exercised to risk exposing your feelings to an uncertain outcome. Another benefit is that you will no longer go through life ‘wondering’ – “What if they are feeling the same towards me? How will I know unless I tell them how I feel?” Taking action to get answers to these lingering questions brings clarity in your heart. Once you gain such clarity, you can make room for true love to enter your heart! I want to close my post today with a snippet of a short poem that I have treasured for many years. I do not have a clue who owns these amazingly patterned words – in honoring credit to them – I am identifying them as “Unknown” and thank them for writing these motivational words — “The love in your heart was not put there to stay — love is not love until you give it away!”

Good afternoon! Countdown – Six Hours to 50 years of Football Madness! Oh yeah, it’s that time of year again – 50 amazing years of bonding on the football field! I will be watching the BIG GAME today – “…she says as she controls the tear attempting to escape her eye – as her team did NOT make it, yet, again! Yep, I am hopeful that next year my team will be on the field!” Nevertheless, I am a fan of this AMAZING sport – and I, too, have chosen a side for today’s showdown to begin in only six hours EST. Let’s support the great, amazing, game of FOOTBALL! Oh…and it’s ok to write during half-time! LOL. Enjoy the game, my fellow writers!
Good morning! “Beauty is as Beauty Does!” An amazing gift exists for writers – while many in the world search for beauty externally – a writer’s beauty is internal. Our beauty has sustenance. We are very much in love with WORDS! We research words and are very selective in the words we choose. We spend a lot of time with our chosen words – sometimes we get very attached to our chosen words, even to the point that we need consultants to force us to ‘let go’ – really, the bond with our words is ridiculously deep! LOL (Ask any writer!) Why are we so attached to these words – because words are beautiful! Writers can find beauty in any word – from “A”; “the”; “being”; “knowing”; “audacious”; “hurt”; “hate”; “lure”; “deny”; “inspire”; “imagine”, “observe”…..this is just a sample of an infinite list of beautiful words. Writers embrace this endless list of beautiful words and let their imagination create amazing stories. Here’s a little insight into a writer’s beautiful mind — We are protective of our thoughts because we want to mold them in a manner to show you, our readers, who we are individually. When you read one of our pieces, you have been connected to a very intimate piece of our soul. This is what makes writers beautiful – our beauty comes from within – not externally. Because within our hearts and souls is an unbreakable bond with beautiful words. SEE the beauty in every writer you have connected with. When you FEEL one of our pieces – you have experienced our beauty! Oh, how our beauty exudes – when we are willing to SHARE our relationship with beautiful words. This special bond with words exudes beauty onto the pages of the pieces we share with you, our lovely readers. Please share with us…what is your favorite beautiful word?
