The purpose of our lives… the deepest place where we find meaning and satisfaction… transcends any relationship, job or circumstance.
This is a story worth reading, really made me picture life from someone else’s eyes. Posted by: A Buick in the Land of Lexus
I snapped a picture of my surroundings and sent it to him, so somebody would know where I was.
“Pretty,” he said. “Where is that?”
Downtown Newark, New Jersey is anything but pretty, but nighttime hides a multitude of sins.
“Are you going to score?”
“Yes” I texted.
“Don’t be a dumbass” he responded.
“If you don’t hear from me in an hour-there’s a problem.”
An hour later, I was laying in front of a magical Christmas fireplace with the whole family I never had.
The most magnificent church bells rang in my soul.
My brain was massaged by Kafka and Burroughs,
as I bathed in the warm golden sunshine of a perfect life.
I squinted at my cell phone at 7:45 the next morning. My cell phone alarm had been beeping for 45 minutes.
7:45? Fuck. I usually am up at 6:30. Get my kid up at 7.

If someone was to ask you what are your convictions in life, would you know how to answer?
I’m not a soul to be entrapped by four walls.
I must be able to spread my wings,
Either to fly or to simply feel the wind on my feathers.
Freedom is what I require,
To be inspired and refreshed.
To bring out the best in me
And illuminate the rest.
Falling in love with self ! Posted by Jump For Joy
“Falling in love with yourself is as beautiful as any experience of love is. It’s learning to laugh at your awkward tendencies and smile at all your quirky habits. It’s learning to be grateful for the many sides you have – confident, crazy, shy, sexy, nerdy, angry, weird, and all the rest of them. It is realizing that you’re one of a kind and that you deserve to give the world the best person you can be. Falling in love with yourself is being happy in your life and knowing that in this one moment in time, you’re beautiful simply because you are you.” – Kovie Biakolo
Advice, something I have always given but haven’t had the regularity of receiving. I guess people tend to associate a person who is always giving advice and encouragement as a person who doesn’t exactly need it. I think they need it the most.
A heart that feel for others more than itself, is a heart that sometimes needs to be rejuvenated. I’m still human and sometimes I need to be reminded that they are still people who feel the same way I do and love the same I way do.
Today I was reminded.
