Love.

Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being 'in love' which any of us can convince ourselves we are.

Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away and love usually leads a person into falling "in love"

"falling in love" is primarily narcissism , while "loving" is generous and selfless .
We call it "falling" because we tell ourselves and everyone else that it's out of our control, which very conveniently provides the perfect excuse to cover all the damage we do to each other.

There are only two intertwining phases to love. One, is the initial connecting of the body, mind, heart, and spirit. The second is
the succession of choices made over and over that contribute to the living love that two people end up with in their relationship.

Love is no joke. It’s a lot of work. Working to overcome your fears of intimacy, trust, and even a dawning happiness. I know that sounds strange but being happy can be a daunting task.

People falling in love with each other first fall in love with themselves as they see who they are or who they wish to be in their partner.

Loving somebody is a series of choices we make daily for the opportunity to experience
the original rush of love. As we fall more deeply in love with ourselves, we are able to cultivate the most powerful tools required for an enduring, loving relationship to another: trust, kindness, patience, motivation, inspiration, and joy.

Everyone can fall in love , but having and sustaining the opportunity to love someone, is a privilege.

  1. Love can never be one sided, it is always unconditional, falling in love or giving love or taking love, always love is something you can call previlidge. Just sweet words in this article.

BEAUTIFUL EYES

Have you ever been told that your eyes are beautiful? You could be looking into everyone's eyes or in the mirror and wondering how beautiful eyes look like.
Is it the 'V' shape of your eyes or eyebrows?, is it the colour?, is it the size? or it is just another obvious compliment that you are used to hearing.SaD EyEs ArE BEAUTIFUL! Good people have sad eyes. I mean extremely beautiful eyes. And i do not mean that bad people have ugly eyes. Bad people have sad eyes too but lost.
You might be checking in the mirror and wondering where "lost" comes in or even wondering if you are a bad person. Haha! You are definitely not a bad person. You are just a good person but the 'lost' in your sad eyes hides the good in you.What i mean by "lost sad eyes" is that you got lost in your pain and became a bad person. You might have decided to become a completely different person from the original you because you think everyone expects that from you.Let us admit…

Money and Money Disorders.

Everywhere you look, there’s compelling evidence that the single-minded pursuit of wealth often leads smart people to do incredibly stupid things — things that destroy what money can’t buy.I ask myself the same questions. How is it that brilliant people with more money than they’ll ever need allow their hunger for even more money to cause them to lose everything? How much is enough, and why are people willing to risk so much to get more? If money is so alluring, how is it that so many people of great wealth also seem so unhappy?Just about everyone has a complicated relationship with money.The average Kenyan  seemed to suffer from a money disorder.Money disorders are persistent patterns of self-destructive and self-limiting financial behaviors.They result from distorted beliefs about money we develop from our financial flashpoint experiences.Whether it's a childhood of poverty or want, a message about money subconsciously internalized from a parent, a nest egg lost to an economic d…

Marriage.

I had a dream that i was pregnant. It felt so real. In my little white dress, and my hands on my belly.
I felt so special and pretty, a feeling that a model will never feel despite all the runways...
Maybe it was the way i was treated by people around me. I was on a new level.Maybe it was the way the drivers would stop their cars even before i had my right foot on the road. Maybe it was the way people will give way on a busy street . Maybe it was how the driver would turn down the volume when i got in the loud matatu.
Maybe it was the way he opened the door for me and pulled a chair for me. So i sat there thinking about him, the father of my unborn baby. Back to reality, am not pregnant, it must be my hormones playing tricks on me when i am sleeping.Google has many definitions on marriage. I have never come across a positive one.
If not two people who are inlove with each other seeking a paper proof that they can legally live together then it is loving each other even in those days wh…
