So I want to believe in magic and romance and true love, so what? I know it isn’t always happy bubbles and sunshine. I know that you have to have the bad to know how to cherish the good. But why can’t true love exist? Why can’t we have a real life romance?
I’ve been shown that people like that exist, that gentlemen are actually real. So maybe the romance and fairytale can be real too… I know fairytale seems unrealistic but I don’t want some Disney fairytale where everything always turns out perfect. I want a real life romantic fairytale. One where there is bad and nitty gritty and things don’t always turn out ok…but through everything we’re there for each other.
Why can’t love win??? Why can’t I have love? That kind of love, that I’ve always dreamed of??? I don’t expect happily ever after, just happy together. Through all of the tough shit we are still together and will always fight for each other. Why can’t that be real?
Maybe I’m naive. Maybe I’m asking too much. Maybe I’m a dreamer who’s just dreaming to big. But maybe, just maybe, dreams can come true. I don’t care, let me be naive and live in my dream that one day someone will sweep me off my feet. They say our thoughts can shape our reality, so let me dream. Maybe one day I’ll be more than just a dreamer…
Death. It’s something we all know is coming. We all have been touched by it in one way or another. We don’t like to think about it, because it means losing someone, or everyone. But death is the most important part of life. Because without death, there is no motivation to live. If we have forever, what drive do we have to do anything right now, in this moment? Death makes every moment important…precious. It’s what gives us drive and forces us to live in this moment…to savor it. Because we know this moment will never come again, and life has only so many moments.
When asked about regrets in life, most elderly will tell you they don’t regret the things they did, but the things they didn’t do, the chances they didn’t take. They’ll tell you that the memories that are most important when you look back aren’t the big things you’ve done, but the small moments that matter…that’s what makes life special.
Because we have a time limit on this earth we want to do things now and live every minute fully. Without that time limit, the moments don’t seem as precious as they really are.
I believe it was DaVinci that once said, “a life without love is no life at all.” He was right. I don’t know if he meant romance, but as beautiful as romance may be, life has to have love but not necessarily romance. Your whole life is made of love in one way or another. Your friends. Your family. Your pets. Your children. The list goes on. All of these people you love in one way or another. And all of these people make up your life. You live for you, yes, but what would your life be without the people you love? Love is life. And life is fleeting. Cherish every moment. Don’t take one second for granted. Because in an instant…it could all be gone… Love freely and wildly.
