True love is choice

Folder: 
2013

 

There is no one made perfectly to match my soul

No person who could complete me

There is just chaos and random opportunities I can choose to embrace or ignore

And people who do their best to be their best because of the best they see in me

And when it works, it won’t be because we are perfectly made for each other

It will be because we make it work

Because we CHOOSE to bring out the best in each other

Because we embraced the chaos and let love come in time

It will be because we complete ourselves

And compliment each other

Bunny, wanted to share with

Bunny, wanted to share with you, my very favorite quote about love and falling in love... I thinkb you will ...love it!!! :-)

 

 

"On romantic love ♥ 
("Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.
~ Captain Corelli's Mandolin~)"

 


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

:) they have done studies

:) they have done studies that show due to the lack of actual responsbility when talkign online, people are able to be more open and fearless, and thus sometimes deep conections can be made 

 

good friends face to face are hard to find, it takes a lot of work and energy, but it is worth it


Much Love

This is a definition of how

This is a definition of how the tapestries of the ages were made...and, btw, the wording weaves itself into itself. A seed of the torus here... love it.
