Every Now and Then…

E N’s quotes to ponder:

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” —Bob Marley

Tough Love

There’s a saying in life that can apply to various situations, and it goes, “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”

How often have you recalled being a child and saying “I can’t wait til I’m grown! Ain’t nobody gon’ be able to tell me nothing!” ?

So, you grow up into a man or a woman with that SAME child-like mentality. Only now, the things you used to do and get away with as a child have adult consequences. Then, you want to revert to being a child again and put the blame on others for your poor decisions because you “grown now and can’t nobody tell you nothing”.

“Yeah, overlooking your tomorrow’s til they finally came”. [Tupac]

“You make your bed hard, you the one that has to sleep in it. Don’t expect me to cosign your BS cause I taught you better. Learn the lessons. Handle your business, and choose your battles wisely”. [A Mother’s Wisdom]

“If you can’t feed your baby, then don’t have a baby”. [Michael J]

“How you gone live right, when you ain’t right within?” [Lauryn Hill]

“Do something TODAY, that your future self will thank you for.” [Proverb]

“Become the change YOU want to see in YOUR OWN Life”.

Patience, perseverance, and prayer.
