Trying Not to Be Slushy

Feb 13, 2014

I am not the most romantic.
My Hubs is certainly more romantic
than me. However, I LOVE 
being in love.

But love is so many different things
to different people.

For me it's not the roses, chocolates
or expensive gifts. It's must simpler than that.

Maybe it's:

*when you catch each others eye
in a crowd and know exactly what your
partner's thinking

*it's that lovely feeling of holding hands; that
warm, strong masculine grip that works every time

*it's knowing that no matter
how wrong you are about something,
you will always be defended (in public
at least ;-)

*it's knowing someone always has your back

*it's knowing that you don't need to
speak to feel each others presence

* it's when the word compromise
doesn't exist; it's just a given

*it's dancing in your pj's to your
favorite song and just losing
all track of the present 

I recently found this fabulous blog
that epitomizes all that is LOVE.
I cry every time I read the posts.
It really is unconditional love at it's most extreme.
You can't help reading the posts whilst
asking yourself "what if this were me?".
Pop over; I defy you not to shed a tear 
or two (you may need to read the post of 4
October 2011 to get the gist of what has happened).

Next grab your favorite drink and take
5 minutes to watch this lovely video; it needs no words

Happy Valentines Lovelies

Message to Hubs

p.s next week I hope to unveil my new website and
new blog/re-branding.
I would love your thoughts as I will
also be offering something just for my 
blog readers.

Meltdown Over

Feb 7, 2014

Hello Lovelies!
First a HUGE thank you for all the heartfelt
comments I got to my previous post.

Right up until yesterday I was receiving
emails from all over the blogosphere
from wonderful women just checking in ;-)

I can't tell you how much strength it has
actually given me.

I also took Dame Taylors advice;
I put on the vampish lipstick and
nail polish and pulled myself together.

However whilst attending my own "pity party" I: 

* learnt my meltdown was more about 
my fear for the people
I love than about my own fears.

*learnt it was more about my anger at someone
disrupting my cosy, happy life

*I learnt that I can lose my head about trivia,
but when it really matters I am "on it"
(as my Hubs so kindly told me)

* I learnt sometimes you just have to
"zap" the toxic people in your life; there is
just no time for discussions. 
You need to move quickly.

*I learnt to not push harder and harder against the problem;
it just gives the issue more energy

*I learnt to continue crafting my life as I wish; in a way that
brings real joy and pleasure

*I remembered not  to rent out my head space
to the gremlins that seem to move in during 
the night. The real estate
in my head is way above their budgets ;-)

*I learnt that sometimes you just have to surrender to what is,
to who people are and to their baggage. You just
don't have to accept their junk in your space

* I remembered just how blessed I am and
that this blip, was merely just that…….a blip.

*I remembered to just trust the wisdom of life, it
always works out as it should.

Happy Weekend Lovelies
