It’s Love

It’s day 3 of being sick at home.  YUCK, big thumbs down!

It may sound silly, but sitting on my behind in front of the TV is really hard for me!  I’d much rather be outside, running errands, seeing friends or doing mostly anything other than sitting!  No wonder my Dear jokes and says that I am “the worst sick person” ha :P

You know when you buy picture frames there usually is a picture of a lovey-dovey couple or a happy family?!  Well, those cheesy photos are still in all of the picture frames in our apartment…  FAIL!  So this afternoon I took advantage of my “sitting” time and uploaded some photos to the [easy-peasy to use] CVS Photo website!

After scrolling through all of my photos that I have on my computer with my Dear, I thought I would be totes cheesy and share some of them with y’all, as well as some of my favorite LOVE quotes…  Enjoy!

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”

~ Elizabeth Gilbert

“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”

~ Jane Austen

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

~ Marilyn Monroe

~~~~~

“Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it”

~ Nicholas Sparks

“We love the things we love for what they are.”

~ Robert Frost

~~~~~

“Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.”

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

“We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.”

~ Nicholas Sparks

~~~~~

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

~ William W. Purkey

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

~ Dr. Seuss

~~~~~

“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.”

~ Nicholas Sparks

“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.”

~ Elbert Hubbard

~~~~~

“The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.”

~ Marilyn Monroe

“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”

~ Robert A. Heinlein

~~~~~

“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.”

~ Jane Austen

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

~ Mother Teresa

~~~~~

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.”

~Alfred Lord Tennyson

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”

~ Nicholas Sparks

~~~~~

“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

~ Dr. Seuss

“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. Colours 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
