Sharing a part of a book I’m reading, I came across this gem when I went to a bookstore Warehouse Sale. Believing it’s just some book only a few would take a chance on buying because it was cheaply priced at P50 compared to other books on sale. I never thought that I’d find words to live by and thoughts of the author/s that made me say “I could not agree more”.

This particular excerpt struck me the most (though I haven’t finished the book yet) 😉 I hope you too could relate to it.

Real love- whether romantic love, close friendship, or a family relationship-happens long after (love) at first sight. It shows up as people get to know each other more deeply and often they work through tough things together. Real love in relationships isn’t a magic act- it’s a journey.

When people say, “It was love at first sight.” what they really mean is “I was attracted to that person the first time I saw them.” There is nothing wrong with being infatuated with someone at the start of a relationship. The real question, however, is, do you have a love that is growing stronger and deeper everyday?

I don’t believe in Love at first sight; I believe in Love at LAST sight. Each of our relationships has to have the potential to be better the next time we’re together than it was the previous time so that the last time we see each other we’re closer than ever before.

Musings from someone who’s missing

Hello world hope you’re listening

There’s someone I’ve been missing

The better half of me.”

I miss sweet nothings, little surprises,

Romantic evenings till the sun rises.

I miss soft whispers, gentle and sweet,

With arms entwined then our eyes meet.

I miss long walks and adventures

Of destinations we’re not sure

Just the idea of being together

Makes us not mind, no never.

I miss endless conversations over coffee,

Filled with laughter and glee.

I miss serious talks over decisions made,

Agreeing to meet in between and not hate.

I miss building memories with you that’ll last,

Pushing behind a dark-filled past.

I miss us dreaming of things to come

Hoping it’ll come not minding where it’s from.

I miss…I miss a lot about you

I hope and pray that you’re missing me too.

“So hear this now, Come Home, Come Home

I’ve been waiting for you.”

take a breather…enjoy love!

posted this as a comment on my bestfriend’s blog the other day, while i was reading her post i just cant help but hit the COMMENT button. Now I’m posting it here on my blog too…Hope someone out there relates to it too. =)

 

hey, hey, hey, R-E-L-A-X!

Take time,
Breathe,
Enjoy the feeling,
Don’t jump into conclusions yet,
Just enjoy.

Enjoy this phase,
It’s what’s missing in most relationships
They forgot to enjoy things as they unravel
When in fact
when two people agree to take the relationship to the next level,
This phase should still be in the picture.

Like you’re forever discovering each other,
There’s always something new…everyday…
It doesn’t stop..it just goes on and on..
Like LOVE… ♥♥♥
