Yes I am romantic – I can’t help it

March 16, 2009

I am quite a romantic and I won’t apologize for it….I don’t believe in fairy tales as in the shoe will fit or my pumpkin will turn in car and vice versa but I do believe in romance and the feeling of butterflies. The more I think about this the more I believe. I may not be perfect but I will be perfect for someone and this is a fact. I think to succeed in life you have to take chances, not have regrets and be a pretty open person and don’t be afraid. To fear the unknown is to fear life and honestly if you fear life you will always be sitting in the back seat of your own car and who wants that?

This all spawns from music ok ok lyrics from songs which I take so personally and I embrace all types of music because lyrics can impact your life or mirror your life at all the stages it has gone thru. Alright I guess movies and books do the same for me. I can see a movie and just cry – like last night I caught the end of, “The Story of Us” and I love this movie and how she confesses everything in the parking lot of how thru all the ups and downs it is still the story of them and its HISTORY and that is hard to repeat. They say history repeats itself but I hope not when it comes to relationships because not to say I have not had good ones and good times but I want more – the WHOLE kit and caboodle. I deserve it all and more. I want the best. The reason I can expect all of this is because I give it back two-fold. I am a giver – I put my whole self into a relationship I believe in and can only hope it becomes the future. I want to stand in a parking lot and River Dance (see the movie you will get it).

I also read a lot, they may not be the intellectual books that I should be reading but I enjoy a good chick book. Chick books can teach you a lot but it can also screw with what you think love should be…Take a Nora Robert book where the cowboy becomes the best man and he fights for you and rides a horse and its so Days of our Lives but you buy into it and want it! Now read Straight up and Dirty or He’s just not that into you and its REAL – this is not fiction but real women/men who have been there done that and it opens your eyes. (Oh My gosh go to the web site and click on the 10 Chick flick cliches NOT found in the movie – how I love these men).
Some favorite quotes are listed below.
He’s Just Not That Into You (Book)
•You deserve to be with someone who is nice to you all the time.
•He is a man made up entirely of your excuses. And the minute you stop making excuses for him, he will completely disappear from your life.
•Men, for the most part, like to pursue women. We (men) like not knowing if we can catch you. We feel rewarded when we do.
•Every man you have ever dated who has said he doesn’t want to get married or doesn’t believe in marriage, or has “issues” with marriage, will … rest assured … someday be married. It just will never be with you
•There’s a guy out there who’s going to be really happy that you didn’t get back together with your crappy ex-boyfriend
•Life is hard enough as it is without choosing someone difficult to share it with
He’s Just Not That Into You (Movie)
•If you can find him, then he can find you. If he wants to find you, he will.
•Men don’t forget how much they like you. So put down the phone.
•You are good enough to be asked out.
•Don’t get tricked into asking him out. If he likes you, he’ll do the asking.
Straight Up and Dirty (Book)
•Tell the truth, or someone will tell it for you.
•Don’t be so damn hard on yourself. Yeah, you screwed up. You’re not perfect, fine. Learn from it. But don’t punish yourself. Be kind to you, even when you screw up. You’ll bounce back eventually. You’ll make up for it
•I had no one to hold. What if this was my life, attending weddings, sitting in pews, listening to I do’s, perpetually wishing for someone to share my life with? Where the fuck was the alcohol?
•You learn to be friends with someone, get to really know them before you get all excited about the guy. You have to keep it tempered and figure out if you even like him, for who he is, not how he feels about you. I know it’s not easy. Believe me, I know. But this thrill you feel.. is probably only there because things are new and uncertain. It’s not about him. It’s you, caught up in you. Your mind craves anxiety, the good exciting kind and the bad I-can’t-function-at-work kind. You need to deprive your body and recognize that your propensity to chase codependency is leading you toward a fat, greasy life of miserable

Well I am off my soapbox for today but I just really felt like I need to get this all down…I would like to think I am pretty happy person but who doesn’t want more out of life…I am ready and open to all the possibilities of life and where this journey may take me. I think everyone has something to teach you just open your eyes and heart to find out what that is and extract it with all your being. I may be getting older but that isn’t going to stop me from following my dreams of happiness as with age comes experience and with experience comes memories.

Best goodbye ever – Have an amazing day 😉
