Has anyone heard the song ‘Just a Kiss’ by Lady Antebellum? Have you taken a moment to really listen to what they’re saying? What about this:
“Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight”
Does anyone realize this concept, or what this could mean? How beautiful it is to think that he could be that person for me. We all think it, maybe not with each and every person we date, but we do think it more than one time. Unfortunately though, most of us are guilty of acting on this feeling. We assume forever and act accordingly.
Obviously, time and time again, Life tells you “no, this person is NOT it.” Yet some of us give ourselves so wholly and completely to that person, and then it ends.
How beautiful would it be if we all were okay with just a kiss. If we so wholly believe that he or she is the one for us, then why is it that we want more? If this person is supposed to be with us for the rest of our lives, then we should act accordingly to that belief and wait to give ourselves completely until that beautiful moment comes to us. Why must we rush it, always? The time will come for more.
I suppose the problem with our generation is that we are a now generation. I now want you, so I shall have you. I now want this, so I must have it right this second. We not only do this with our commercialism, but with our relationships; our choices for our hearts.
“I know that if we give this a little time
It’ll only bring us closer to the love we wanna find”
Time is all we need. Trust that.
Oh, dears. It’s been 9 days since my last post. I’m a terrible blogger. Things have been so busy, but I’m in love with every moment of it.
First off, my mum came to visit last week to help take care of my sick aunt. My mum is such a beautiful person. She worked so hard to get things done to make it easier for not only my aunt, but also my grandparents who have been working incessantly to help my aunt with everything going on.
Secondly, Christmas shopping has been a blast of positively joyous moments and hair-pulling screamers. Money is tight, but it’s our (and my) first Christmas where we can buy loved ones gifts, so we’ve done our best with what we have. Isn’t that what my Carrie taught me? (:
I have my first Christmas tree, too. It’s a beautiful white one, with red and gold ornaments. T and I went shopping for presents and decided to surprise Chris (who was sick) with a little Christmas tree. We saved the best part just for him. (:
Everything has been so wonderful, stressful, and amazing. I’ve been helping out at a medical staffing agency by doing a working interview. So far, so wonderful. I really enjoy it, and the people I’ve been working with. I worked last Thursday and Friday, and they’ve asked me to come back for the whole of this week. My fingers are crossed and prayers are whispered that this is the one. It seems too perfect not to be.
Along with all this wondrous news: I believe the best moment of this week thus far is when Chris surprised me with coffee and lunch today. We haven’t had any money for anything extra lately, so when we had a few dollars extra, he treated me to a peppermint mocha from Starbucks. (: I love the little things. They mean the most.
I’ve recently read all of “Winnie the Pooh”.
Honestly, I’m wondering why my parents never read it to me. It’s such a wonderful story, and so quirky! It’s a wondrous classic. I want to read it to my children as they grow (:
It was sweet in such a strange way.
How is everyone’s weekend? I’m getting a few errands done, and then going to visit a family member.
Dream well, sweets.
