I use to think that love was just a weekend thing, the way you make me feel, sharing a moment
of emptiness, but you see that wasn’t nothing, cause the moment he left I forgot about him, until you came in and you showed me what it really felt to be loved, and kissed, and held, and prayed for, and
wanted, and nutured and guided, and to be understood
No pressure.. .. the lines of communication are open..
I mean we need to talk.. nothing in particular.. but everything and nothing..
The more you talk.. the more I listen..
the more I can decipher.. the more I learn..
but no pressure.. I just want to check out your vibrations..
Do you speak to me when no words are spoken..
Can I grow from you?
wonderful things have been created in the friend zone.
I seen Sharon again to on my way to pick up thr kids.. Sharon is the lady who is bi-polar who inspired me to get my passport. I notice she was walking with one shoe on down MLK which is a pretty busy intersection . I was on the phone with my cousin and decided to pull over and give her the slides i had on because it looked like her feet was hurting.. I got out barefooted during rush hour and tried to hand them to her. She started talking and said “oh no darling i don’t want them.. but i remember your face” I didn’t know how to take it.. people in traffic looking at me crazy so I went back to my car and drove off.
I’m not sure why me and Sharon paths keep crossing.. but im sending positive vibes and energy her way.
This morning I got up and walk 2+ miles, and I feel great! I walked with my friend Keke and when i tell you the convo was good!.. I haven’t known her for long but she drops nothing by realness. Str8 no chaser!
I love our morning walks!
Every wants to feel connected.. wether its with a person, a group.. or a thing.
I wish we all could have someone who loves us for us.. with out intentions, or motives.
You guys have a good day.
(I totally wanted to go somewhere else with this piece, but I received a call and totally lost my train of thought)
Being told no doesn’t get me upset.. I honestly gives me power.. and some what of an adrenaline rush to get what I need and want. I thank the heavens for my mom.. she taught me early on to no accept no for and answer. Its like you tell me no.. ok.. now what are my options.. sit and sulk.. or get off my butt and make things happen.. I will always be an over achiever because of this.. what one won’t teach me.. I will teach myself.
Straight like that.
I was getting my oil changed today and a guy walked up to me and asked where I’m from.. I told him I was born and raised here.. He was like “nah beautiful.. You can’t be.. You look too organic” I was like “no uno organic?” he started to laugh.. He stayed that my face brings peace and told me to keep smiling ..he went on a bit more, but
That brighten my day.. Nothing more .. Nothing less.
Finally done with work. I need to get better with my sleep schedule, i’ve totally been having street-walker hours.. lol I literally laughed out loud when I wrote that. Well good night my friends.. here is a random picture for you to look at.
I know its not Wednesday.. but this spoke to me.. please read:
“1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.”
― Miguel Ruiz
So I’ve been dating for the pass few months, most of them have been hits, some are total miss. Most of the time I attract guys who are the old school type, that like to pay for everything, which I’m cool with, but I also like to pay to give it some balance.
I’ve notice that once you are interested in that person you want to spend more time with them, and that can become costly. Lets take a look at it. If we go out three times a week, rather is just dinner, movies or a concert, that can be a small car note.
My question is does it take money to date? I personally think it doesn’t take a bunch.. but it take some.. even if it covers gas.. But other than that no. If you have an imagination and resourceful You can pocket that cash and save it for a trip.
Here are a few date that don’t cost any money and could actually help you get to know that person better:
- Trip to the library: A trip to the library will help you find out what type of literature your date is into. I love reading, and if my date is an avid reader like I am, his reading interest may be a great conversation starter.
- Check out the local Saturday market: This is one of my faves. On Saturday morning there is a community market that has an array of activities available, that’s all free. You can check out the locally grown fruit and veggie, while getting to know what your date like and dislike(you may get hints on favorite meals etc). You can also try bake goods while walking and talking.
- late night walk on the beach: this by far is my favorite. Usually the beach houses novelty stores, bars and cool little activities that are mostly free. Water puts me at ease and makes me totally relaxed, so that will make the conversation flow.
- Check out this video where Male Translation podcast talks about dating with out using money, and let me know your thoughts.
