Season, Reason, or Lifetime? I'm a huge believer in "Everything happens for a reason"! I believe in "partners", fairness, honesty, integrity, passion. I'd like to consider the glass half full! I am accountable for my actions, and expect the same.
I don't believe in expectations, as they most often lead to disappointments. If you are open, honest, fair and completely being you, there are no need for expectations. Planning is ok for some things, but just as the weather changes, so does our mood, energy level, responsibilitites, etc., therefore, I am often a "last minute" kind of gal; spontaneity, living for the moment, taking the day as it comes.
Fear prohibits us from taking chances.
Protecting ourselves prohibit possibilities.
Are you going to live in the past? Are you going to grow? Are you going to settle - or are you going to be true to what you want? Are you going to forgive? Do you know how to forgive?
Relationships are damn hard - complicated - everyone fights to be right, can't we sometimes just agree to disagree? Be accountable people! Be honest! Be respectful! Smile! Laugh! Cry! Remember the simple things! Be stupid! Have fun! Don't worry! Make memories! And for God's sake - NO EVERYTHING DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ALL SERIOUS ALL THE TIME!
And where has faith and morals gone? Are they out there?
At the end of the day it's all the same! We fear commitment, rejection, abandonment, abuse - men and women! The question is, did you learn and grow? Not just from the outcome, but how you handled it during and after.
Cliche as it sounds - I truly believe you have to be physically attracted to someone. From there....can you carry on a conversation mutually? Do you share common goals, understanding, morals, are you able to be yourself completely without having to "change" or be judged? God help you if you're conforming to what you "think" I want....if you can't be you - move on!
What happens to us in this life is up to NO ONE - but us! People think they can judge us for our choices - hello - you've not been there before?
I care what you're thinking - but not sure I'll ever ask you that! I feel best in jeans - not much of a girly girl.
"It is what it is"!
"It is what we make of it"!
There really isn't ONE person for us out there - I would love to believe in soulmates - but it all comes down to mutual understanding of IT!!! Do I have "IT"???? Do you have "IT"???? Will we have "IT"?????
I am very forthcoming - I callz 'em like I seez em! I'm very sassy....somewhat of a smartass actually - but not rude! NO TIME FOR RUDE! NO TIME FOR NEGATIVITY! I'm a natural fixer - lot's of experience with it - but really don't want to fix anymore - just want to live! I want to laugh, have fun, enjoy the simple things, work through the harder things, snuggle, get stupid, dance in the rain - I can be eccentric - yet shy. I can be serious, and farthest from serious - I'm very vocal, I'm very real, pretty simple and very compassionate about the things that matter in this life.
I'm a very proud, confused, frustrated, heartfelt, tired mother of a 19 year old daughter, 17 year old son, and an 14 year old daughter! I go to the ends of the earth for them - sometimes too far, of course sacrificing my needs - but all worth it - it's not just my job as a parent - but my choices as a person, to do my very best with my kids, and everything that I encounter. 'Cuz although we may "think" we get second chances with relationships - we only get one chance with our kids - birth to 18 - of course we're still parents beyond that - but by that point - they've already decided if we've made their life a living hell - or if their childhood was alright.
Now that my kids are older - I have more time to learn more about me - and what I've sacrified - as they don't "need" mom like they used to! Stages of life - all important - all special - just different.
