    Sometimes I get lost in my own head

    It's funny and you may need to be of my

    generation to get this, but we all grew up being sold the fairy tale. You know the one, the tale of living happily ever after. We were led to believe that by a certain age it would be a certain way, we would be happy, set for life, and have no worries. And maybe we weren't...

    I love to THINK I love to DREAM There is a

    difference although at times, it seems to be a fine line that separates the two. I go all day experiencing different thoughts, many of which are things that I dream of just happening to me. Sometimes we need to push ourselves for our dreams to actually come true but often, we...

    As I Began to Love Myself,

    by Charlie Chaplin As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is "AUTHENTICITY". As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody As I try to...

    I Search For You

    I am always thinking about the purpose of life, the 'reality' of existence, trying to logically fit the pieces of the puzzle together, trying to understand, trying to find answers, trying to find you..... I am always looking for signs, searching eyes, listening for words of...

    I sit back, and puff my smoke,

    and in the voice of Alvin the Chipmunk tell the wind "Virtual omniscience corrupts internally, and it's so sad, and yet so funny" I then say to myself there, oh sweet duplicity, sad and funny. Canst the two authentically come from the same place? Oh yeah, and as with other...

    The Porch Swing

    I spent the better part of this afternoon contemplating the purpose of dreams. Why, I asked myself is the brain capable of creating this conscious manifestation of something that we desire when it is wholly impossible in reality? Cruel occipital lobes, flashing images that then...

    Apparently, my life isn't going to go the way I

    had planned. But that doesn't mean it can't still be great. From the outside, right now probably looks like the lowest point in my life. From my perspective, though, it's definitely not. A couple of years ago, I had what a lot of people dream of. And I was miserable. I had no...

    I am a person who craves emotional,

    intellectual and spiritual honesty. I long to know another human being who craves truth and deepness the way I do. To just connect with this one person is what would really make my life complete and have meaning. Just thoughts of being able to talk with and feel another person's...

    When a woman's worth is judged in terms of her

    appearance, we threaten the meaning of what beauty is. Beauty is not always in the particular, but in the eternal and ephemeral alike. What remains forever is perfect and what is temporary is so perfect that it must be savored. Why can't we be lovers of human and of art, because...

    outside our own mind (brains in a vat)? If what we experience is just a projection and simulated reality...but then it's a bit self centered and focused solely on 'I' and others experiences don't exist...and the way you interact or react wouldn't really matter...but I'm not a...

    My new husband was a single child

    and lived a sheltered life. We have only been married a few weeks now, and since he comes from a religious family, we lived strictly apart until our wedding night. All that went well, so I won’t say more about it. But a couple of days after the “big night” things began to...

    I once dreamed a dream.

    ..that I was crazy enough, and brave enough, to believe in myself to the fullest. And I hoped, upon waking, decades from now as I lie on my deathbed, that I'd realize I had lived my dream

    I like watching women seducing men

    and putting myself in that place. I'd love to act all sexy around someone and watch them not be able to handle themselves.

    Remember when you were a child

    and your mother or father read or told you bedtime stories or fairy tales whatever you call them. I guarantee that 99.9 % of those fairytales had a happy ending. Isn't this the way to promote unrealistic expectation? The whole word expectation gives me a lot to think about. You...

    A funny thing happened today.

    .. I was at work this morning and a random thought sparked inside my mind. I used to think I was weird for not being interested in anyone. I just haven't met anyone interesting yet. Ok, I'm done with my random thought of the day.

    it's amazing how one anonymous person on an app

    Once I took a personality test

    and the result was that I have been born to love. And I feel it is true. I love everything and everyone on this earth. Sometimes I hug trees and whisper to them how much I value them. I love the beautiful sunshine everyday. I love hustle bustle, people and children. I don't...

    Excuse me miss, can I take you out tonight?

    ? Perhaps to the movies or maybe to the park.. Why don't we lay down under the stars and talk about our dreams and plan a future together.. I'd lay wide awake watching you sleep because I know my reality is better than any dream.. so what do you think? forever sounds good to me...

    There's no use in dwelling on what's past,

    unless it's with the express purpose of not repeating it. (((Not to do of course with relaxing nostalgic practices, those are like little massages for a tensed up brain)))

    I dunno if I can deal with my life

    for much longer. I know people have it worse but problems just keep piling on top of one another. The discouraging thing is that I know I will never give up no matter what life throws at me. Been betrayed before, it may happen again.
