Happy Valentines Day Everyone <3: What's Love Got to Do With It?

valentines-day-web_G-1110x581Love is shared each and everyday, not for just one day. Though on a day dedicated to love, we are able to shower our closest friends and family with the sweetest treats, giant teddy bears, red balloons, and other wonderful surprises. I could say more, but I rather share this interesting myth of Valentine’s Day shall we…?

You guys can research this if you like! It all began with a priest who went by the name of Valentine believed in love at first sight. He was a sucker for love like some of us, me actually lol (Don’t tell anyone!). He believed that love was extraordinary and those who believed too would have the ability to marry their soulmates and lifelong partners. Of course there’s always a villain in a story and so the Emperor Claudis II had other plans. He didn’t believe in love stating that his soldiers were better off single and unmarried; outlawing marriage. Anyone who participated in the bliss of love would be doomed for death. Well, Valentine felt otherwise and continued to marry lovers of the world until he found himself captured and locked away. Then one day, he found himself falling in love with a girl of his dreams, writing love letters and signing them, “From your Valentine.” (Hint: we say this phrase today!) Of course, the more he fought to spread the deed of love, he was eventually killed. So guys, moral of the story…live a life of love and get don’t get beheaded, haha!

Now as usual, I’d like to share a poem in the name of love, life, and happiness 

In just a few mins
I’ll be asleep
bundled up
under desirable flames
drifting my dreams
to the right side of me
where they wait to meet you for the first time

Have a marvelous day everyone!

Living Room Chaos

It rained
on the days
I thought of you
flipping your hair
in the daring sun
as I sat still
in the same spot you
whispered “I love you”
in the living room

[Blogging Mindset] Never, Ever, Ever Give Up

This is a beautifully written piece that deserves more than just a repost, more so a standing ovation!

The Art of Blogging

“What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.”  —  C.S. Lewis

When asked how he writes so fast, Stephen King answered, “One word at a time.”

This is the kind of answer that no one believes in. And the fact that there’s an abundance of related cliches doesn’t help either.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Or something like that. The Great Wall of China was built by laying one brick after another.

It is not the mountains to conquer that make you give up, but rather the pebble in your shoe.

All cliches. Terrible, terrible cliches that we can’t help but fear and loathe at the same time.

Want to know why?

Because they are so damn true.

Wednesday: Quotes For the Day

Image result for quotes for the day goodmorning

How do you start your morning? Do you wake up and turn some Katy Perry on while you wait for your waffles and eggs to sizzle in the pan before you throw on your living my best life jeans? Or maybe a morning prayer or a 5-minute meditation session over your daily devotion to shed positive vibes?  I’ve listed a few quotes that may describe the feeling in your heart or mind that contributes to love, relationships, and life. 

  • You gave meanings to these love songs that I hear on the radio
  • Your words catered to my heart
  • I’ve missed blame in the mouth and swallowed all of my regret while craving a love that was as sweet and bitter as the integrity I gained.
  • I fell on your doorstep hoping to land in your heart
  • I hate to get on your nerves and make you mad, but I love showing you that I care
  • Being lost in the world wasn’t as fearful as loving you more than myself
  • I can’t take away the moments we were most alive because we spent too much time dying slowly.

Symphony

I danced on strings
of your guitar
and loved on parts
of your vibration
as a wanderer
in the galaxies
of stars and dust
until your hands met my waistline
arousing the hymns
that took place
in my auditorium
