The meaning of “Love” – a rant for my good friend

28 Jan

Going to write a post about love – this is dedicated to one of my friends in case she is not sure if what she has is the real deal or not. Let’s break this down shall we…

LOVE is action.

LOVE is never about EXCUSES.

(Excuses some people KNOW are excuses some people have had since they can spend their whole life almost DODGING having to answer anyone truthfully and are almost always about BUYING TIME.)

Love is thoughtful.

Love is NOT disrespectful like being late….not calling WHEN they said they would and NOT making everything about them, their wants, their needs etc.

Love is NOT about bed jumping….love is not about making oneself happy. However it is up to us, to control our own happiness.

Love is about doing little and big things that you know makes someone’s life easier and being there to add something positive to the mix.

Love is knowing that you are giving and receiving equally and not being taken advantage of.

ALL EXCUSE makers or those who PROMISE SOMEDAY or ONE DAY “IT” will be all different  who use phrases like “we will see” or “whatever” that equals NO most of the time……or the people who just make you WAIT and don’t give up on them are ALL con artists who know JUST WHAT to say to BUY time which means in essence waste yours. Do you want that? hell no.

Life is short and needs to be spent with a man or a women who is faithful-truthful-kind and not self centered. If you do not have that……….YOU are not being loved. So if you want to be loved you know what you have got to do. I hate this expression but I am going to say it in this instance simply “do the needful” for yourself – now obviously everyone’s situation is different out there but I am sure some of the points above ring home for some sadly. Its not a selfish thing either to review your love. You have to really weigh up the facts of what you can and can not tolerate in the long run.

Whatever your predicament just remember the following:

Hi readers,

Just a quick sorry to you all. I have been on my other relatively new blog lately which I have set up for the book below. You could say I have been in my own world a bit lately :) Link is here

I will try to get back to posting random blog entries on here and I apologize if I haven’t really done so.

Just so you know I have three little ones all under 5 – baby is going to turn 1 now on Monday so that has left me off here!!

Anyway I do appreciate the people who still come to this site to read my many rants over the last few years. Hope you all have a Happy New Year!! Will write more again…Best Wishes, Barbara.

I finally wrote that e-book! It was on last year’s New Years resolution list lol along with updating the blog. I said I better do that before the end of the year is out lol! And here it is…its a nice short compact read – approx. 23-25 pages in length – available on the Amazon Kindle Store here. I just want to thank all my blog readers, family and friends for all the support they have given to this publication. Here is the book promotion video below. So if you want to forget about your financial woes and enter my world at least for a short while – why not grab your copy here? Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!! or Happy Holidays :)

Sorry to all my readers of this blog. The truth is, I have been off this blog writing a new book.  Hurrah how exciting, huh. Anyway its a relationship book that maybe some of you might just like :) as soon as its complete I will put up a link and not charge much for it woo-hoo.  I just want to help you nothing else. I think its important to humanity to help each other and not just that can be v rewarding. Anyway I have been updating some new shopping websites I have been making – it kind of is useful if you don’t want to spend ages looking on Amazon for things so its a smaller Amazon shop in a way – feel free to have a look – you might find stuff in there you like at nice discounted prices hurrah – just think its really handy for getting presents and what not!!

George Carlin’s wife died early in 2008 and George followed her, dying in July 2008. It is ironic George Carlin – comedian of the 70’s and 80’s – could write something so very eloquent and so very appropriate. An observation by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. 

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. 

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things. 

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. 

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete. 

Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. 

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. 

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.

George Carlin
