Love is patient..Love is kind..

    So I’ve sitting around all day AKA working, wondering what to write about…and then it hit me like a ten pound cat-fish! Love…sweet magical, frustrating Love. As the famous Cher quoted “Love don’t need a reason..she can pick you up, or leave you bleeding”. Some of us search our whole life searching for that ONE great love. Some of us find love in other things…maybe your true love is your job, your new baby…your dog. Whatever it is, it’s worth EVERY frustrating, broken heart moment.
    Why do we fall in love SO easy, even when we know it’s not right?  Speaking from personal experience, my aspiration in life is to find and keep great love; I want to be THAT couple that people know they are in presence of GREAT love when around us. YES, I did spend a large chunk (7 years..) of my life with someone I always knew wasn’t exactly right for me. Some would ask, well why would you stay and waste your time? Well, I wouldn’t consider that a waste of time. I suppose you kind of get used to the idea of someone being in your life, and if it works and your happy-ish..why change? As someone who doesn’t like change and enjoys routine, that was right up my alley. We got along, he was my best friend and we had a comfortable life and I think we both just used to it. And sometimes it’s just easier to stay then to leave. Which is kind of sad when you REALLY think about it. Life is SO short, why the HELL do we stay and invest in something that doesn’t make us grow…and we’re just too damn lazy to just make a move….or are we afraid of being, dare I say, ALONE? 
    Sometimes, it takes us meeting that ‘great love” to realize, what exactly, we were missing in our life. That love that makes you question EVERY idea you ever had about life and love in general. And sometimes you have to STOP in your tracks and wonder if this person was created out of your dreams or perhaps someone REALLY is listening to your wishes? People come into your life for many reasons; some stay for a while, and some leave shortly after they’ve entered.  I often used to hear about people finding their “soul mates”, saying “you just know”..”you can feel it”. And I always used to wonder..HOW? HOW can you feel it?? What the HELL does “it” feel like??? But believe ME, when you know you’ve found the person you’re meant to walk this life with, there’s NO more just know.  I remember asking my mom-Faye when she knew my dad was “the one” and she said (without skipping a beat) “after our first date”….THAT is great love at its finest, and I finally understand.
    In conclusion my beautiful reader, I hope that whatever Love you have, it’s great..and NOTHING less than spectacular. That is ALL you deserve, as life is too short to put up with anything less than butterflies…
Love, Laura xoxo

February: Yoga Month!


Good day avid reader!

 First of all, please accept my apologies that this is coming to you a TAD late; seeing as its now February.8th! But I figured I’d let you in on this month’s NEW resolution!  I have decided to peg February as “Yoga Month”! And I’m actually pretty excited for it. I start on Sunday and am happy to be getting back into it.  I am buying a monthly unlimited pass with a friend and we’ve already made out our schedule for the month…SO we have NO excuse!

 Since last month’s resolution was kind of a bust (OK a HUGE mess…), I am determined to make this one a WIN. I’m sure it will because I enjoy yoga and could really use the relaxation.  Anyways, that’s all for now..I will keep you posted on my progress as the time goes on J

January Resolution: Success or complete bust??

Good day!

 So I bet you’re sitting anticipation, DYING to know how my “sober” January went. Well, first let me just say…in order to succeed, you must first fail. In short, sober January, wasn’t very sober. I lasted about 9 days and then peer pressure/random Thursday night shenanigans took control of me..and then the weekend preceded those actions. What can I say? I am a sucker for a goodtime??

 I will say, that Karma is horrible bitch goddess. I put out into the universe AKA Facebook, that I was going to sober up for 1 month and alas I did not. SO, my first weekend back into it, JUST as we were getting ready to get  a cab, I tripped over a friend and ended up spraining my foot..OUCH! But I am SUCH an all-star that I went out anyways and danced on it all night. Needless to say, the next day I did NOT feel like much of an fact I didn’t feel much of anything; minus the BLINDING foot pain. So for about a week after that I limped around, swearing at myself for my drinking failure and lack of will-power (DAMN YOU good times!!). By the time the NEXT weekend rolled around, my sprain-pain had subsided but now I was in a whole NEW kind of pain..on the OTHER side of my foot. The pain was so excruciating, that I layed on the couch for 2 days barely able to move around, and the thought of drinking just irritated me, since THAT was the reason I was in this hot mess!  By Monday morning, I had HAD it! I figured it was pain related to my previous weekends injury, so I went to the doc’s to find out if I MAYBE broke something..or had jaundice of the toe…

 SO, turns out..I had Gout. Yea…GOUT! It was apparent at this moment, the universe was against me and telling me this was a sign to cut out the drinking…for now anyways. IF you don’t know much about gout (I’m a poet and I don’t even know it..HA), it can be brought on my alcohol and/or poor diet…BOTH of which I was going off, as partying leads to next morning grease…it just goes hand in hand. SO, all in all my judgmental reader, the first months resolution did not pan out as least I’ve have 2 sober weekends and I don’t drink during the week…except that random Thursday…!!! Just trying to think about the positive…Alas, I am off the sauce for LONG time, seriously this time…just TRY and stop me!!!


Have a glorious weekend!!
