The Power of Now

By DJ Italo Laurenthie World of Thoughts ©


“You gotta promise not to break, no matter how far you are bent.”

I think back to my first real relationship, and while I don’t regret falling head over heels, it’s hard not to scratch my head at how blind I became over the course of it.

For now, she might still the one, but will she always be ? I suppose she’s the only one who can get closer to knowing it…

I wouldn’t say I’m in any stage, if there are in fact, stages of love. I’m not trying to move on, nor trying to get her back, not anymore Although, after all I’ve been through the past two years, I just don’t understand how she still has my heart.

I’m not worried though, I’m just surprised. I’m happy taking the most of my now, and all that’s not part of now, I don’t prioritize anymore.

If she can read this. I’d just say keep on going, always follow your heart… For as long as you’re doing that, you will always be right. And that’s all I wish for her and each and every being on Earth.

When You Can’t Get Over The One That Got Away

By Gwendolyn Kansen Thought Catalog ©

It’s been a long time.

You knew him right before you moved on from something important. You didn’t want to end that stage in your life, but you were graduating or you got a new job and it had to be over.

You had to go. Your friends were moving on too maybe, but you didn’t think they felt the loss as acutely as you did.

You’re the kind of person who chops your life into distinct stages in your mind. It’s lonely being like that. You’ve always felt like a fragmented person with a million free-floating pieces. Just a few of them matched anyone else’s.

Until you met him.

He seemed nothing like you at first. But something about the look on his face – those little expressions he made that he thought no one else noticed – said he was your person.

He asked you to smoke. You talked casually. Neither of you are casual talkers. One of you would speak and the other would pause to think before saying the next thing.

Those pauses were loaded and both of you were nervous and it felt like forever had passed between one word and the next. But it always turned out to have been just the right thing to say.

You tumbled into bed like you’d fall into a good book or something: so natural that you didn’t even notice the progression.

Reasons to Stop Chasing After a Crush

By Sonya Matejko | Huffpost Women ©

So, you have a crush. It makes you as crazy as it makes you happy. One moment, you think all hope is lost, and then there’s that one text message that means it’s back on. You scheme and you plot (because we all do it) on how to play the game.

You vent about hating the game, but we all know that if we were truly as forward as we’d like to be, then it’d seem far crazier than our hidden agendas. So, we pretend and we overanalyze everything. Absolutely everything. From punctuation marks to the time it takes to respond, it all means something to us when, in all likelihood, it meant nothing at all.

Chasing someone that may not be pursuing you gets you nowhere except running circles around your own heart. Chasing someone only makes you lose your own breath while they keep theirs. We try to find a silver lining in every flirty comment, but the truest truth is that if someone is into you, you’ll just know.

When you meet the right person, you won’t need to run after them, because you’ll both want to walk together the moment you see eye-to-eye. Your worlds will change and the only direction left to go will be forward, holding hands.

Otherwise, you wind up wasting time conspiring on how to make someone fall for you. You’re forgetting that the right person will fall for you without you even having to try.

You start to forget about the people who are not in your life just temporarily, and you miss out on treasured memories with them while trying to force forgettable memories with infatuation.

You begin to offer your heart to someone who doesn’t deserve you. The one who does will woo you, court you and kill to be with you… because what would life be without you?

Fragile As F*ck: Why The Male Ego Is Basically A 14-Year-Old Girl

By Lauren Martin |  Elite Daily ©


Women often get a bad reputation. We always do. We’re sensitive, insecure and high-maintenance. We’re moody, confusing and never happy.

The worst part of it all, however, is that the people who tell us this are usually guilty of the same things.

Any woman who’s ever been in a relationship knows that while women have their moments, it’s the men who needs the special care and attention. Because contrary to the popular belief, the male ego is not just any child, it’s a 14-year-old girl!

And like with any 14-year-old girl, you have to know how to handle them before they go hormonal on your ass. You have to be able to pacify their whims and accept their tantrums.

You must learn how to love them, until they’re out of this stage, or until they’ve accepted it and has learned to control themselves.

Until then, you must find the right balance between praise and discipline. You must learn how to pacify him, yet also give him the positive reinforcement he needs to feel safe and secure with you.

Because men may try and act all macho, but they have the same feelings of any hormonal teenager.

They say they don’t need love, but they need it more than anyone. They act like they don’t need your advice and praise, but they’re really just waiting for it.

They try to be the man in the relationship, but they’re really just waiting for the right woman to tell them it’s OK not to be.

13 Reasons Why Being A B*tch Is Actually Really Good For Your Health

By Gigi Engle |  Elite Daily ©

Being a bitch is a powerful thing.

No one wants to mess with a bitch.

Unfortunately, bitches get a bad rep because other people are threatened by their forthright, aggressive personalities.

Since it’s undesirable to be considered a bitch, those of us who wear the label proudly are the strongest of the bunch.

We refuse to feel badly for people who can’t handle us. We’re confident and vibrant and strong.

We’re not afraid to speak our minds and, therefore, we get sh*t done. We don’t have time for weak, indecisive people who drag their feet in the mud.

A bitch is a boss. It’s good for your health to embrace your bitch status because you revel in your strength, you take care of yourself, and you never waste your time on stupid stuff that doesn’t matter.

People may hate on you, but you’re the queen, and you know it. Haters will hate.
