I think a lot of people don’t understand what real romance is. Anyone can buy flowers, candy and jewelry. The truly romantic things in life are those little things you do every day to show you care, and that you’re thinking of them. It’s going out of your way to make them happy. The way you hold her hand when you know she’s scared, or you save the last piece of cake for him. The random text or call in the middle of the day, just to say “I love you” or “I miss you”. The way he stops to kiss you when he passes by. It’s dedicating her favorite song to her, and letting her eat your fries; telling her she’s beautiful. It’s putting your favorite show on pause so she can tell you about her day, and laughing at his jokes, even the really lame ones. It’s slow dancing in the kitchen and kissing in the rain. Romance isn’t about buying, it’s about giving. True romance is in gestures.
"Being strong doesn’t mean you have to stay and fight all the battles and petty arguments that come your way. Being strong means you don’t have to stay and respond to rude remarks. Don’t retort by throwing insults back at them. It’s what they want. Keep your dignity and don’t lower yourself to their level. True strength is being adult enough to walk away from the nonsense with your head held high."
Life doesn’t have feelings and can’t feel what you are going through. It’s hard to push forward if you let something hold you back.
People have bad days, bad moments and bad hours; yet they still manage to get things done. What makes any of us so special, that we feel the rules don’t apply? No matter what, the sun will rise tomorrow and a new day will be here. That means you have a new 24 hours to make it mean something. I know every decision I make, has already been made before I actually make it and a key element of life is take responsibility for our actions. Being accountable is a good trait; it means we admit to doing, saying, acting certain ways. The reason doesn’t matter, it’s already done and can’t be undone. The worst thing a person can do, is to make excuses. I have learned this the hard way, from experience. I have stumbled so many times, that I laugh after a while. It’s not so much amusing, as it is an admission of my mistake. If I use laughter to help me learn from my mistakes, I can be a better person each time and even smile about it.
I have a lot of work to do and I am going to do that work. Some of it is spiritual, some job-related and some is relationship improvement. If I fail to get what needs to be done, the results will be horrible and I do not want that. It all needs to be done, in order to live life to its fullest.
In fact, there are rewards that can’t be measured by any means. They are the little things that add up to be big things. I have a lot of work to do, but it is all more than worthwhile.
