Purpose and Beliefs

A question came up in a conversation the other day: Is there a purpose to it all?

My thoughts? Honestly, I just plan on living day by day until it’s my time to leave this earth. I don’t think there’s a purpose or something you have to live up to. You just live until you die. How you choose to live during your time is up to you. If you want to believe that you have a purpose or are meant to do or be something larger than yourself, so be it. But it is different dependant upon each person. I don’t have large, unattainable goals because at the end of the day, who’s to tell if you’ll live long enough to achieve them. The only thing I can hope for is that I don’t die today. Anything can happen in the future. I live for the moment, not for the future.

Do I believe in an afterlife? No. I don’t want to believe something that I don’t know for sure. All I know is what I see. Some may call me an atheist but I don’t need a label. Many may not agree with my views, and that’s fine. I don’t downplay any religions. You can believe in what you want to. Like I said, I believe in only what I see.

I know I haven’t been writing much lately. Still in a writing funk. Not much going on with me but so much at the same time. Ah well. Thanks for reading, and be sure to comment your own thoughts on the subject.

Sting (unfinished)

It’s all out in the open now
Doesn’t sting as much as I thought it would
But it still stings nonetheless
It’s not me, it’s you
Was pretty much the answer
Am I supposed to wait?
Can I have time to lick my wounds
And heal from the rejection
So I can put the feelings aside
And focus on me,
On us, as friends, and nothing more?

All we want in this life is someone to share our deepest, darkest thoughts with. Someone who won’t judge. Someone who will love every ounce of your mind, body and soul. Someone who will put up with your bs, who’ll always have your back. When shit hits the fan, we want someone who will support us. To lift us up, to feel with us. Someone who understands you wholly, knows your next move or thought before you do. Someone who could never get too angry with you, or stay mad for too long because they just can’t find it in their heart to. Someone who will, even if for a moment, sacrifice their happiness to feel what it’s like in your footsteps, because they’re walking with you. Not in front leading, or behind being dragged along. You are side by side, sharing life and all it hands you.

Sure you may be able to find it in a friend, but a friend could still be considered an outsider. Not truly living in your world. You may tell them “everything” but to an extent. They may have your back now, but when it gets really tough, will they be there?

We all want that one person who is everything. Beyond a friend, beyond a lover, beyond family. A soulmate, for lack of a better, more meaningful term.

I believe that not everyone has a soulmate. Many of us just long for something that is not in our destiny. And in that longing, we become even more damaged. Greatly in need of that one person who could possibly make it all better, and make everything right with the world. Not everyone is lucky enough to have that feeling of completion. That feeling that, yeah, this is it… this person is a part of my soul, the missing link, if you will.

Screenshots & Quotes

If you’re like me, you have an arsenal of screenshot-ed (making up words now) quotes at your disposal for any and every situation. I don’t know what I did before smartphones but I’m obsessed with this feature. Anyway, my purpose for this post is just to display some of my (19 out of 224 to be exact, not including ones already posted on my Instagram) favorite quotes.

Message for the Nonbelievers

There are so many different types of love. I love food. But not in the same way that I love my family. I also love some of my friends but not in a romantic way which would only be reserved for one person. Everyone and everything is loved differently.

So why is it hard for some people to even mumble the word in casual conversation? They will skip around it in every which way (the L word, or 1•4•3) as if the word is a curse (meanwhile they have no issue saying a typical curse word). Then they go on to wonder why there are so many negative things happening to them in their life. “Woe is me! Why do bad things always seem to happen to me?”

I’ll tell you why…. You have no type of positive outlook on anything really. You expect bad shit to happen, so it does. You act as if there is no love in your life or you don’t believe in it. But as I just said, there are so many types and levels of love in life. You don’t have to be scared of it. Embrace it. If someone tells you they love you, at the very least, say thank you, even if it’s not reciprocated. Because there are some people in this world who actually don’t have that privilege, to have any form of love.

Be grateful, look at life and love in a different light, and then maybe, just maybe, things will start looking up. Instead of dwelling on the negative, on all the bad, dark things that have happened to you or around you, just make even the slightest attempt to change your outlook. Could change your life around, but you never know if you don’t try.

Can’t Hide Love

Lets go back to a time when men weren’t afraid of telling a woman that they loved or wanted them

You want my love and you can’t deny
you know it’s true, but you try to hide, yeah
You turn down love like it’s really bad, ow
You can’t give what you never had, yeah
Well bless your soul, you can fool a few, ha ha
Ah, I know the truth now so do you, how how

(You can’t hide, I betcha, hoo,)
Can’t hide love, can’t hide love, well I betcha
(girl, I betcha)
I can’t hide, yeah
(feel inside)

You can’t pretend there’s nothing there
Girl, I look in your eyes, I see you care

So why not stop trying to run and hide
You won’t find out, if you never try,

(You want my love, I betcha,)
Ooooo, yeah, whoa oh whoa
(Hoo, Betcha)

You want my love, well I betcha
(girl, I betcha)
Whoa oh whoa, I’ve a feeling inside
(feel inside)

Love has found the time for kissing, yeah
can you find the time to listen
Life’s found the time to want you, yeah
can you find the time for blissing, yeah, how, how.

Ah (several verses in harmony)
