We Can Dance if 24 Wants To

Day 24 brings us A song that I have dance to with my best friend.

I’ve never had someone I consider a best friend, just good friends, and it is with this people that you can just be yourself, especially if that is silly and goofy. And to this, it means I can be myself, and just dance, in the goofiest ways of course. One of the times I’ve been dancing around, being silly, having a good time, was with Boyfriend. We enjoy doing things like that. And it doesn’t matter where we are either. The one that I’m recalling right now was very random. I was in a terribly silly mood, and as we walked over to the grocery store, proceeded to dance to music in my head the whole way there. Once we reached it, I still continued to dance to the beat of the songs playing, just very silly. Boyfriend would smile and keep shopping. Then one particular song came on, and he joined me dancing. Right in the middle of the aisle, we were dancing like no one else was around. We had a lot of fun. He lets me be me, and then joins me as well.

Not many would see this one coming:

Also, we were dancing to this one randomly whilst working on other things too.

My Birthday

So, things have been quiet lately. I’ve hit a dry spell not knowing what to write. How this happened, I’m not quite sure, but I know work has been a main contributor as by the time it’s over, I only want to sleep.  Seriously, I just crawl into bed not long after work, and the next thing I know, it’s time to go back to work.

For my birthday though, I took off of work, and my boyfriend treated me to the best day ever! He took me to one of my favorite places, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. I could have spent all day there, and tried to! It was amazing to have a day with nothing to worry about, and spend it with someone who loves and cares for me. It was pure joy.

Photos were taken of course, about 200 of them. I told you I love my camera. I thought I would share some of them with you whilst I think of new things to write and entertain you with.

My Promise to You

My Promise to You

We may pass through storms
But you say: “Don’t you worry my dear,
there’s nowhere else I want to be
than keeping you near.

Hand in hand, let’s take this step.
This first one, speaks the most
as we start over anew,
letting the past become a ghost.

Let me be your strength,
teaching you how to believe.
Giving you hope to hold onto,
showing you that I’ll never leave.

Let’s make the past fade away
and stop being afraid.
I will never let you fall,
always there to give you aid.

I’ll never want you to be different
I love you for who you are
You make me feel better
Just for being my star.”

Why So Serious?

Why So Serious?

For my boyfriend, with all that he’s shown me.

Acceptance and Blessings

So it has been a while. Things have definitely been busy and crazy, but despite the hardships, I feel blessed.

I’ve met the most amazing and caring person. Not to mention incredibly sexy. (He says no, but I disagree. Though when he says the same to me, I say no as well.)  He’s helped me by just being who he is. He knows who he is and is comfortable with who he has become. He accepts me for who I am, this includes my past. He embraces it, stating it has created me into who I am now, and that is who he loves.

Knowing this, and feeling this love and acceptance, I’ve been able to heal. It’s more of a total healing. I’ve been able to accept myself.  I know, who would have thought this would happen. I never did, but it’s amazing. I really am healing. I am finding my true self, and accepting who I am. When I say accepting, I mean it not in a “Oh that’s just who I am type of way, and it won’t change”, no not that, I’m realizing who I am, what makes me, and embracing it.

That’s right. Embracing who I am and what makes me who I am.

I’m also learning to trust. After everything I have gone through, I’m learning trust, something I thought was gone and would never come back. I won’t lie and say it is easy, because it’s not. Not a chance in the world of that being easy. It’s a constant battle. It’s so engrained into me to be negative and to feel that nothing will work out, but I’m learning to trust. My boyfriend is the best thing to happen to me and helping me with trust. I’m experiencing reasons to trust, and then having these feelings reinforced. I’m not going to say I have this down, and I know what I’m doing. I need reminders. I need help.  But here’s the point, I’m learning and building. I have a reason to trust. Everyone else in my life has shown me that trust is something that cannot be had, now, I know differently.

Kind of nice isn’t it?

Oh… I’ve changed a bit.  There are some pink chunks to my hair, and I now have my symbol on my wrists. My sparrows are with  me where I can see them always. My strength. They’re there whenever I need a reminder. I’m here, and I’m standing stronger. Little by little.

 

A little pink...

A little pink…

My strength, my reminders, my symbols.

My strength, my reminders, my symbols.
