“Make as many memories as you can, because at the end you don’t get to decide which ones you keep”.
In every lifetime, I believe that each soul is given one mate. Don’t get me wrong, I think that a person can fall in love more than one time. But finding your soulmate is a different matter altogether.
You don’t just love that person, you adore him or her; that person is your world; your reason for living. The one thing in this life that will make everything OK. When you find your soul mate, you’ve found your purpose (at least that’s my opinion);to love that one person; to experience life with that one person.
Problem with all this is, what happens when you lose your soul mate? When that one person you will love for eternity is taken from you? it destroys you; it takes a part of you that you will never get back.
Some may say no can heal you; no one can take your soul mate’s place; that person will forever be your other half, your one true love. In some instances, that might be true but for some its not. Take you own faith into your hands, be the one to change your story.
We are told that those who ignore the past are doomed to repeat it, while those who enjoyed the past would love nothing more than to repeat it over and over again. But memories are like photographs, they have a way of fading in time.
Ed Sheeran sang a song titled ‘Photograph’ with lovely lyrics ” We keep this love in a photograph. We made these memories for ourselves.Where our eyes are never closing,Our hearts are never broken,And time’s forever frozen, still”. The lyrics of the song are phenomenal and explains the our photographs are like journals for our memories ( at least that’s my own version).
Some memories are so powerful that they never fade. Memories which become more powerful every time we remember them. It does make you know our present lives seem a little more faded, but let’s not think about now.
I know I’ve been awol for a while, sorry about. But I’m back now and ready to post loads of stuff.
So check in, read posts and comment.
At the end of the day we are going to make mistakes, we are all going to do things we regret even to those we care about its unavoidable. But at the end what matters is how you address your failings, how you treat your family, your friends, how you forgive and how you love.
One more thing I realized is you never get the bucket list done, you just keep adding things to it, because every day there is something new to amaze us it’s how we know we are alive.
So be surprised, cherish the times you have because every day is a gift, every moment is a blessing. It’s not the thing in life that makes us happy, it’s the moments; the memories and the magic that happens when you open your life to new things, people and adventures.
Invest in making your life richer by stepping outside your comforts zone, not following the status quo and cultivating forever lasting memories by traveling and seeing new things.
Some might ask if you believe that after everything you have done for love, was it worth it? If you find someone you love enough to ruin your entire life for, it is always worth it.
There is a good in him/her and when you see the good in someone, you don’t give up on them especially if they don’t see it themselves. And if you are ever lucky enough to find true love, you fight for everyday.
You know that saying “No one knows what’s really going on in a relationship except the two people in it’, if you are not in it, don’t force yourself to try and understand it.
What is sacred about love is that tingle in your stomach that lets you know the one you love is in the room even before you see them. What’s sacred is that look in their eyes that you know they can only give to you. What’s sacred is whatever that spark is between people that no one, as far as I can tell, has ever been able to properly describe even though everybody from poets to scientists have tried.
The word “I love you”, doesn’t simply mean “ I like you”. It means that through you, I’ve found a new me. The words “I love you” is a pledge that you’d overcome insecurities and create new moments every day
Those words stand as a promise that you will think of this moment as everlasting, rather than worrying about the future.
It has been 24years, 24 long years since I’ve been here/alive. Looking back on what I said a while back; all the hopes and dreams I had, I’ve come to the conclusion that if having things turn out the way you wanted them to is a measure of a successful life then some would say I’m a failure.
The important thing is not to be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past and recognize that everyday won’t be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness of despair, remember that it’s only in the black of night that you can see the stars and those stars will lead you back home.
So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, because most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you’ll get everything you wish for, maybe you’ll get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where life will take you; the road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination.
