Falling, for yourself...

Who says we have to follow all those silly rules about not calling til three days later and not messaging too much, and when it's OK to go over and when its not, what you should say and when is the right time to say it? sending different messages all dependent upon what you wear, do, say, order, joke about, or what cologne you where, or how your hair is done....why do we do these things? Are they nature? or are they done because it's what you "should" do when dating or beginning a relationship?

Why do they call it falling? If that's the 'accepted' term shouldn't it feel a little something like this:





Where you just feel like it just grabbed you out of nowhere and down you go, hoping you can get your hands out just in time to catch you. But maybe the actual fall feels a little more like this, like you don't necessarily want it to end:


So what about all these rules we mentioned in the beginning? Are they guidelines for falling in love?...to fall in love be sure to: followed by an unwritten list of rules. Is that how we are supposed to live? supposed to love? What about after you are married? Isn't everything on the table? Or is that wishful thinking of me to assume that you would know each other in a way you have never known anyone else?

I suppose in an ideal sense one would hope that their love was pure and built on each others essence, character, and personality and who one another truly is. But, if since the beginning of your courtship you were doing things that were out of character for you that had an impact on the feelings the other person had for you, wouldn't your love be untrue? Is it just like every other love between any other two people? That's just the way it is, people do things they wouldn't normally do to make another fall for them?

Maybe this is all irrelevant because what you fall in love with is not the fact that they said the right thing at just the right point in your relationship but you fall in love with who they are inside and the potential that they have within them. You love them because of who they have made you: a better human being, someone who brings out the greatest in them as well.

I think I like that fairytale best.
You fall in love because in actuality you love who you are when you are with the one you have fallen for.
What a fantastic way to live.
I'll take it.

Running for smoothies

So I just created the most delicious pumpkin smoothie known to my little stomach. Ohhh you know what would take this smoothie from delicious to scrumptious? Some graham cracker sticks to dip or some graham cracker crumbs mixed in. Here is the real question...to run or not to run? I feel like I should because who wants to weigh 300 pounds right? but then again I don't want to because there will be many a folk walking right on my running path at this time of day except they have a very different purpose for going in the same direction I would be forcing my body to trudge along. They are enhancing their own knowledge, increasing their education and filling their minds with useful (and sometimes useless) information.

Okay new question, is any information really useless? I shall ponder on this for a time and hopefully come up with something substantial to say.

Hello?

This is so foreign to me. I don't even know if I am doing this right. Who wants to read about the simplistic details of my life?? I suppose that's why I didn't tell anyone I had this(I don't really want anyone to read it anyway). I mean to say every person has their own life, their own obligations, their own thoughts and their own engagements...so what would provoke them to read about my life?

But then again I suppose my writing this partially exposes my assumption that someone would read whatever I happen to spill onto this silly page. So I'll keep assuming and I suppose if anyone is out there, you may continue to read.

I think these things also serve as journals and vaults where people can "vent" without any real repercussions, responsibilities, or consequences for their actions and words, or lack thereof.
I hear these things get pretty vicious...watch your back!
