most importantly love like it’s the only thing you know how at the end of the day all this means nothing this page where you’re sitting your degree your job the money nothing even matters except love and human connection who you loved and how deeply you loved them how you touched the people around you and how much you gave them
When someone starts to go out of their way to make your life easier (especially when your life is pretty complicated and exhausting) it does, in result, make your life much easier. But in exchange, it adds difficulty to theirs.
And I know, those who give should not expect in return.
And I know, those who go out of their way to help someone are doing it out of their own will.
But it must, at some point, become damaging to the person and/or the relationship as a whole.
And I know, that the taker can give back in return in other ways, but what if it doesn’t compare?
What if it isn’t enough?
What is it isn’t as often?
Is this what leads us to expectations and standards? And when they stops expending, is this what leads us to feel unloved and conclusively lead to downfall?
It’s an extremely gloomy, rainy day here in DC. As soon as I was ready to take some pictures, it started to pour 😦 Lucky enough, it cleared for the rest of the night! My lovely boyfriend was my photographer and actually did so much better than I expected! Although he made fun of me most of the time, I think I’ll keep him (; This is such a casual chic outfit that can be worn for a night out, or with a pair of sneakers for a day having lunch with some friends. I haven’t had many opportunities to expand my closet recently (aka go shopping :P) so I’ve done a lot of playing around with the pieces I have. I think that’s one of the key necessities to being a stylish individual. Spending isn’t always available and we don’t all get clothes for free like the many blogger inspirations we see with new pieces nearly every other day. Making the most of the pieces you have is key. One pair of jeans can make 5 different significant outfits that never look the same! Keep an open mind 🙂
I just wanted to take the time to say a few things to everyone who follows my blog and takes the time to read, like and comment on my posts – you have no idea how amazing you are and how much I appreciate you!!!! I had only realized a few days ago when editing my page and adding an email subscription count that I had above 600 of you and I cannot thank you enough!!! I am so so incredibly honored and grateful.
A few more things:
Someone said to me recently out of the blue, “How many poets does it take to change a lightbulb? None! Poets can write from the darkest places”
Whatever that means to you, I took it the nonliteral way. My writing does tend to be a bit dark and somewhat depressing – this has been the case with the majority of everything I’ve ever written, from poem to song, since I was a freshman in high school. Sorry to be the debby-downer of the poetry world! 🙂 Also, I don’t want anyone to think that I live a depressed, horrible life, because I don’t and I love every person in it. I just hope my writing can touch your soul in some way, and even if you’ve never experienced anything that I’m writing about, I hope it can make you feel a way you never have before. Simply put, I hope you enjoy it 🙂
