Where is the love Wednesday: can a person truly be in love with two people or is it in Lust with two people instead?

Hey friends! Happy Hump day!

I want to discuss a topic that I’ve always questioned when I hear people speak about being in love with two people. No, this has never been me. So of course my stance is Not bible nor how things should be. I’m just curious, is it really Love or Lust?

Love… a feeling, an act that is shown in different ways and often communicated amongst many in intimate relationships (in this case romantic ones). Some feel that when you love someone their needs become a priority just as your own.

Lust.. a feeling and an act as well from chemistry between individuals (usually sexual). Some could say when your in Lust with someone it’s solely your needs and wants only.

As a Millennial, I notice that our generation and of course others have a problem with communicating, being vulnerable enough to allow someone to come in our inner circle, trust and wanting committed relationships. There are so many options : remain single, date around, get married, get divorced, remarry etc…

Now, with stating some of the issues that people face in dating/courting, is it possible for someone who has a hard time being vulnerable, to truly be in love with two people? I do believe you can be attracted to two people at the same time and like them for different reasons but Love?

As I said, my feelings are my feelings and not law. What do you guys think? Has this been you? Have you been in love with two people at once? Let me hear your thoughts.

Feel Good Friday: Love Self!

Happy Friday!!!

Do you remember when you realized you loved You? Yes, you, yourself. Have you accepted you for you and all that it entails? I’m at that point and it feels good.

It’s not easy to do this, but I know that I needed to get to this space because I can’t expect love from others if I don’t possess a love for myself as well. When I say love ourselves that includes the ups and downs, the beautiful and not so beautiful. I know that I’m overall emotional, sensitive (the gift and curse), competitive, stubborn, can be loud, and tend to keep my feelings bottled up until I exploded (oh, not good I know). However, I’m also, loving, honest, loyal, supportive, hardworking and more.

I’m sure many of you share similar characteristics and can relate. So, I ask this question: if we want others to live and accept us as we are, don’t you think we ought to love and accept ourselves as well? I know that I’m growing every day, the many flaws that I have (some I’m sure I forgot to mention lol) I do work on. So, even though I accept and love me, I know the importance of striving to be a better me. I hope and pray you can do the same.

Woo, that felt great! Have a great day everyone and I hope this post helps someone today!

Peace….. Happiness

So much weighs on our minds.

Too much weighs on our hearts.

For many of us, we have to take everything that we deal with, one day at a time.

All the tasks aren’t getting done due to us being overwhelmed with the many distractions that get in the way.

How do we overcome this? How do we find balance? How do we find happiness? My suggestion is to get Peace first.

Having peace is vital and it can help us see the “BIG” picture clearer. We could possibly find solutions to things that are problematic. With Peace comes Acceptance and Happiness will follow not too far behind. Have you struggled with finding happiness? Do you believe you have peace in your life? I’m working on it and pray to get there one day! I hope the same for you all as well.

Feel Good Friday: I love helping people

For the Love of the People.

I love connecting with people and helping them. It brings joy to my heart knowing that I set an impact on someone’s Life.

In the past few weeks, I’ve met new people. Some were from work and others were fellow MS Warriors. I’ve also have made new connections with people from views of my YouTube videos.

Maybe this is my purpose? Being a voice for those who are unable to share their struggle. Being that ear to listen when some feel that there is no one to listen. That support when many feel they are alone.

Therefore, thank you to my new pals. Thank you to my supporters. Thank you to the people who follow or have subscribed to my sites. I appreciate you all more than you will ever know. You all play a vital role in my search for Purpose and Healing.

Helping others, makes me feel good on this “Feel Good Friday”.

The weather

As a child, I never quite understood how older people could tell it was going to rain or when they said “It’s cold, I can feel it in my bones”. It’s funny how life happens because now I say similar things!

Since being diagnosed with MS, my body lets me know if the humidity is high, if it will rain, and if the temperature is very cold. I experience leg weakness during this time, numbness in toes and sometimes very painful nerve pain. As I type this post, my left big toe is curing numb and I’m having nerve pain in both legs. It really sucks.

However, the show has to still go on. On days like this, I still have to be wifey, mommy and assistant supervisor at work. I pray to God for strength, as tears may flow down my cheeks and slowly get it together. I know there are others who experience this and more. There are other warriors with physical ailments and mental issues that can be thrown off due to the weather.

When it rains, it pours. I wish, I could cut back some of the storms, but unfortunately that can’t happen and that’s Life. How we choose to manage IS up to us.

We can let the weather take over us and our spirit or we can dance in the rain and view the rainbow that follows.

The intimacy of holding hands

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a good weekend so far! I was at wedding last night and like many others, it brought back many memories of my own wedding day. Weddings can stir many emotions amongst couples, they might pick up the romantic vibes during the couple’s dance, the exchange of vows and even when look at each other. One thing that I notice besides a smooch here and there are the holding of hands.

I know not all people are not into being lovey dovey constantly while others live off public display affection for one another. I’m affectionate and one of the ways I like to express my love is to hold hands. If I’m holding hands with my DH, I feel special, I feel safe, I feel the warmth of his body and that’s a great feeling.. When I hold hands with my son, I’m making sure he feels the same. My son knows that mommy will protect him and he can Trust me.

The power of a loving physical touch can bring joy and peace into your life. However, interlocking of hands can present an intimacy that is indescribable.

What about you all? Do you like to hold hands?
