Life and Love and Me

So, that was a short lived hiatus, wasn't it? The truth is that I missed people even if they didn't miss me. I missed seeing what was happening in people's lives and talking with them, even if it were just through the internet. I know some would say that I wasn't gone long enough for anyone to miss me and maybe that's the truth. Maybe it's not. After all, there are those that I speak to online every day or via text every day and I still miss them. I miss their physical presence in my life. I miss being able to reach out and touch them or to hug them or to kiss them. I miss looking in their eyes when we speak and seeing the love and affection there. So, just because you're online or on a phone doesn't mean you can't be missing the person.

I came across this graphic the other day and it said in ways that I haven't been able to what I've been going through. It's fairly common knowledge that I'm the girl who is always trying to make sure that everyone around her is happy. It's also known, at least to me, that I don't know how to say I need you..or help...I have friends, real and true friends, scattered all over the globe, but I'm afraid to ask if I can come see them, if I can spend time with them because deep down I know how much I need that connection and what if they say no? People know when I'm down or when I'm up. I don't really try to hide that but sometimes, maybe I do hide just how down or just how much I need something or someone.

So, to all of you who know me and who love me, take this graphic to heart. Reach out to me and reach out to those other happy makers in your life. You never know when your words or your hug might be the thing that makes someone's day. I know, for me personally, that when my phone rings with an unplanned phone call from a friend, it makes a huge difference in my day. It feels good to know that someone is out there missing you or thinking about you. Receiving a random text message that says I love you (yes, with the I..not the casual love you or love ya) or some other silly sweet thing can put a smile on my face but nothing beats hearing someone tell you that they love you and care about you or want you in their lives forever.

I should get off here though. I have a bathroom to clean and a dinner to get ready for..Yes, that's right..I'm actually leaving my house to go be social with a bunch of strangers. Wish me luck! I leave you with this I've been thinking a lot about:

It's hard to wait around for something you know might never happen; but it's even harder to give up when you know it's everything you want.
