i have been sitting here thinking about LOVE… the emotion that has the ability to take you so very high… and drop you so hard on your ass that you will wish you couldnt feel anything at all…

to LOVE feels wonderful… but most times we LOVE with ulterior motives… because we want to be loved back… because we want to feel the safety and security of LOVE…

The truth is … LOVE doesnt have to happen for a reason… it doesnt require reciprocation…

LOVE  just is…

when people we love die… the LOVE never ends… it is infinite…

when songs we LOVE stop playing… we LOVE and remember them just as fondly…

When perfumes we LOVE discontinue… we can close our eyes and still recall the scent and the LOVE…

when you LOVE someone who doesnt LOVE you back… it is LOVE all the same…

a quote that i LOVE…

If I LOVE you, what business is it of yours? ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

its my heart, and i will LOVE if i wanna…

The River

river1You know a dream is like a river, ever changing as it flows.
And a dreamer’s just a vessel that must follow where it goes.
Trying to learn from what’s behind you and never knowing what’s in store
makes each day a constant battle just to stay between the shores.
And I will sail my vessel ’til the river runs dry.
Like a bird upon the wind, these waters are my sky.
I’ll never reach my destination if I never try,
So I will sail my vessel ’til the river runs dry.
Too many times we stand aside and let the water slip away.
To what we put off ’til tomorrow has now become today.
So don’t you sit upon the shore and say you’re satisfied.
Choose to chance the rapids and dare to dance the tides.

-Garth Brooks, song “The River” co-written with Victoria Shaw

Holy crap!  There are so many things that can distract you when you are trying to stay focused.

  • Twitter
  • Myspace
  • Facebook
  • Reading blogs
  • Snooping on people via the internet (don’t you judge me)

How does one manage to stay focused?  This is the tricky part for me.  I need to write EVERY single day, so my plan is to write about everything (i.e. feeling unfocused, distractions, feeling blocked, etc.).  Hey writing is writing right?  As I get more into the zone I will hopefully be writing actual stories and poems…but I am just not feeling anything yet.

These quotes inspire me to stay focused:

Action is the foundational key to all success.
Pablo Picasso

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.
Dale Carnegie

Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
David Frost

If you want to achieve things in life, you’ve just got to do them, and if you’re talented and smart, you’ll succeed.
Juliana Hatfield

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
Bill Cosby
