Trying to Touch the Stars

It’s Monday and I am quasi-betwixt high-gravity and mellow. It’s one of those silly dating anniversary’s I suppose. Love is such an invisible yet tangible force of nature isn’t it? It’s tendrils wrap tightly about your heart, sometimes squeezing just a little too tightly, other times you hardly feel the weight there, it just is. I’ve learned a few things over the years about love, you don’t date this long and not do so, thats for sure. I think the most important life love lesson that has touched me as I have aged is; though true love is unconditional, a healthy, loving relationship is always conditional. There should always be boundaries to which each partner dare not tread, a partnership of forward motion and helpfulness, not a smothering takeover of the other’s heart. Me and you, may become we, but it should be ruled with duality, not one over powering another. Honestly, who needs someone that sees what’s good about us? What we need is someone who see’s the bad and inspite of it, still wants us. So we slog on through, trying but never quite finding “the one.” But somewhere between the heartaches and waiting we are given another chance to be found by someone who can show us that we don’t deserve to be just an option, that to this one person we are their choice. Not their best choice, their only choice.

Trying to Touch the Stars A little cheeky just for Peep! ❤

You know the one, it’s that person, that moment in time when you look at them and realize, this is it, this is the real thing, I love him and they just smile because they already knew. They knew it all along. The person you miss when they are not with you but you know distance will never seperate your two hearts because your memories of each other span the miles and no matter the distance you always, in seconds, will be there. Together in some cosmic moment scattered in space. How though you miss them, deep inside you know the more important issue is that you have that special one to miss. I think thats the stepping stone that makes the world forge on, creeping through years, evolving, softening, melding to form new colors, new families, a soft blending within us, making us stronger than who we were before we knew each other. Love. Just Love.

Take from? Love is in the air, it’s a palpable presence in my world, right beyond my fingertips, if only I would just reach a little further. Just a touch further. Love is, but above all things, the most important when trying to touch the stars, is never forget the most important thing of all. Love yourself.

  1. Are you sure you don’t have my house bugged or something? My husband is in TN visiting his family for 16 days and we were having this exact conversation last night. All I can say is he is definitely the one worth dating for. Wonderful post and it never hurts to flash a bit of gratuitous cheek. 😛 ❤ ❤

  2. Lovely post Cao! I have missed you. Been busy with the big event..you know the one lol. I am glad you are talking about love,it spins the world. I don’t think I believe in “THE ONE” anymore, but someone for everyone that is different. I also know we have to be receptive to it and not bogged down in a relationship that does not work. I know so many that settle for a blah relationship to keep from being alone. Not me I would rather have no relationship than a blah one. Which brings up your last point. You have to love you first of all, because if you don’t love you it is impossible to love someone else, not fully at least. This is not a negative spin on it, it is more about not settling for less than what makes you happiest. I think I will take myself out of the house some day and see if he is out there lol. Nice tushy too. Love you my extremely insightful friend. Is love blooming over there for the Doc, I hope so:-)

    1. I’ve missed you too, I hope you are having fun? It’s funny I oft think of you as I write, as if your hand is in mine, guiding me WWSD (what would Spirit Do) a favorite thought of mine because I think in many ways we are similar in spirituality and lifes lessons. You are my twin from another mother. You will one day find your toe-curlng man, I just know it. Wander out the door. If I can find a spork accepting, crazy family loving, Mad Cao adoring feller (thanks mum) I know there is a certain someone for a calm normal YOU. As for love blooming, all I can say is this day has been one of no words needed smiles for miles. 😀 ❤ Love you gorgie girl!

    *just sighs and nods* You have such a way of expressing what I feel, Cao. I think this might just have become my favourite love quote ❤

    (oh, and the cheeky pic didn't get past me, girly!) 😉

    1. hahaha how could it get past you since I referenced you in the captioning! 😀 I can’t tell you how much your kind words about my writing mean to me Peep, bc I just love your writing so much too. You are always so wonderfully happy and funny. Love you girlie-cue, cheeks and all! ❤

  4. Ah, these words. 🙂 I feel this strongly. For nearly 5 years now, my Man and I have been apart for 4 weeks each time (he works away). He will be home this week so excuse me while I blub and nod all the way through your post.

    “Me and you, may become we, but it should be ruled with duality, not one over powering another.” Yes. YESYESYES. On the same line, this is what bothers me about the idea that ‘when you love each other, you complete each other’, as if insinuating that two people who are already complete on their own cannot also feel the same love. I was complete before I met him, I will be had I not met him. No problem with duality. There shouldn’t be a ‘true love is this’ criteria.

    “Honestly, who needs someone that sees what’s good about us? What we need is someone who see’s the bad and inspite of it, still wants us.” Amen.

  5. i adore you and your little snippets of love and life to ponder on. so important to be able to just be you in a relationship and that you can also give the person your with that same space. not so easy sometimes but so worth it.

    and that cheeky peek only ads to the adorability 🙂

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
