tumblrbot asked: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INANIMATE OBJECT?
Sometimes, a facelift is required to achieve your inner and outer desires of self-beautification. We all have things about ourselves that we see fit for improvement, and there isn’t anything wrong with that. Throughout life, we are expected to undergo growth and this means plenty of transitions for us all. Maybe it means taking a little reflection time each day to assess your behaviors, reactions, and interactions with others. By doing so you are opening yourself up to change; the first is acknowledgment that there are problems that exist.
For myself, I am thinking of making a list of the top 5 things about myself that I am not completely fond of, including mental mind sets, actions, and physical attributes. I think 5 is a reasonable number to start with because it doesn’t overload me with too many things to focus on simultaneously. I am aware that growth is a very great piece of the pie when it comes to living a happy, successful life. We should always be striving to be the best attainable versions of ourselves. One thing that has always stuck with me is the quote, “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself” -George Bernard Shaw
“What’s your definition of it, how does it make you feel? Tell me what you’d saythat truly makes it real.”
Since the beginning of time, we as a human race have come to many conclusions which explain the phenomena that is LOVE. It is safe to say that although it is universal, love is pretty much subjective. It is both a noun (passionate affection for another person) and a verb (to love, to be loved, to be loving). For some, love (giving it/receiving it) is therapeutic; it keeps some people sane. Some obsess over it and wish to indulge in its beauty and the happiness that it brings. Some of these people fake it, almost as to pretend to possess its magic. Many are hurt and blame love for pain received from emotionally lusting after another.
I’ve learned that love doesn’t hurt people, love teaches people and helps them grow. I’ve learned to look at my faults with past loves and I’ve observed my wrong doings. I have learned to be patient and understanding, because true love does not exist without the two. I’ve learned the importance of loving without fear, for when it is real, and you genuinely know that it is real, nothing can get in the way. Nothing can intrude on a true love. A love that is meant to be will be, no matter what hardships must be endured. The key is to understand that a lasting love requires constant growth and faith.
Many claim to desire a lasting love but only few are willing to pay the cost. Something I’ve come to learn is that if you would like to receive a different outcome from life, you have to do something different. Effect is caused by action, therefore action must be taken to achieve what you desire (no matter what that be). A true love isn’t one free of effort, but one where effort is driven by hope, faith, trust, and happiness. In my opinion love is more than just being content, contentment is not enough, love is satisfaction with what you have. It is not about the physicality’s or what someone can do for you, it is about how they turn a bad day around without words.
As I previously stated, since the beginning of time, we as a human race have all added to the definition of love. It is subjective, it is universal, and it is YOU!
A ride to remember….
Tonight, I took a nice long ride with my grandmother. While navigating through Chicago, she made a comment towards me that I considered to be offensive. I immediately became irritated and a tad bit upset. It reminded me of why I so desperately want to move away from my family. It wasn’t long before it hit me that I was not only being petty, I was ignoring my own personal beliefs in life being too short to hold even the slightest grudge. Although I didn’t let it be known that I was upset, I felt bad for being upset with my grandmother, the person who I hold closest to my heart. I then removed my headphones and proceeded to play music from my laptop. “Imagine” by John Lennon came on and my grandmother began to sing along. As I moderately joined in with her, I had an instant flashback of when I was a small child. When I was younger, my grandmother took me everywhere with her, and she would say everything with song. To be perfectly honest, my grandmother plays a substantial part in my love for music and singing. As I continued to sing along with my Grandmother and the track, I began to feel better, while still being angry with myself for being upset in the first place.
Tonight, I was reminded that every moment spent with a loved one should be cherished because todays reality can be snatched away as quickly as it takes us to inhale life-necessity, air. We can’t help the family that we are blessed to share this earth with. Although my Grandmother’s comment hurt my feelings in a way, I know that her intentions weren’t to do so. It is important that we approach each situation and each person in our lives with care and understanding. I’m growing to not take things so offensively and to understand WHERE they are coming from, for then I can grow from what is being said… Be blessed, and remember to be patient, kind, loving, and understanding with your loved ones. Embrace them as you want them to do the same for you.—-::♥♬勇FEINNIXpen::

One of life’s many beauty’s is to witness the glistening of the sun against a clear body of water. It brings such a serene feeling. Such a hopeful feeling. It reassures that anything is possible. That life’s juiciness is meant to be bitten into, devoured, and enjoyed to the fullest. The waters sensual movement represents peace and harmony as the waves brush each other into the same direction effortlessly, moving with the flow of the universe. To sit upon a rock under a tree and witness such beauty makes small simple moments those of greatness. It clears the mind. Refreshes the spirit. It calms the heart and forces it to beat at a steady pace. Life is like an ocean of waves. They may all be against you and pushing you in the direction that is not meant for you, but with enough power, faith, and might, the journey across the ocean is not only possible, it is inevitable! Remember to enjoy lifes small pleasures, for they are therapeutic and necessary to achieve tranquility and piece of mind. ————————————————————-
The wind pushes north
Then follows the waves
Tranquility sets in
Serenity is engaged
Thoughts are heavily flowing
Yet mind is resting at ease
Muscles relaxed and limber
Spirit free within the breeze
Energy bursting inside
Power exloding from hands
Words are spilling naturally
Thoughts of a calm man
