Getting A Feeling So Complicated


Ever been overcome with an emotion so great that you cant quite put into words how exactly you’re feeling? Happens to all of us from time to time but most recently to me. I was asked a question of “would you like to talk about your feelings?”  I took a second to think about the emotions I were currently feeling and in the end, found myself unable to respond because there was no one way I could express how I felt. The question becomes harder when asked by an significant other because no one word or sentence can be used to described how you feel

Of course it doesn’t have to be related to just a loved one; you may feel strongly about food, a certain activity, your favorite TV show, and your favorite game. That’s what our journals and blogs exist for right? I could tell my journal that my girlfriend and I are like peas and carrots; we just go hand in hand, we’re a perfect match. When she looks at me my heart starts pumping and I find myself stumbling over my words. I’m always being asked to repeat myself because I get so caught up admiring her beauty instead of thinking of what I’m trying to say next.

I could go on and on about the many things I feel but there’s just no one way to say it. The sensation is so great that it’d complicate things if I were to try and explain. I believe one of the best ways to express the way you feel about certain things are to write it all down with no holding back, and share your thoughts with others who may feel the same as you. Although , words aren’t the only way to get your thoughts and feelings across.


First is Yourself

I am proud of you. You’re a kind person, very caring and selfless. Most would say you are a push over with with a fragile heart. But you are no weakling, for it takes a strong heart and will to endure the hurdles you’ve overcome. You amaze me with how strong and tall you stand when life gives you beat down after beat down.

I admire your courage and I look to you for inspiration when needed. If I could describe you in one word I have to say you are simply one of a kind.  Not too reckless but you take life by the horns and throw it over your shoulders.

I don’t need to tell you to keep doing your best or congratulate you with a good job. I will only say stay true to yourself, and know that you make me proud every single day. I’m happy to be along on this path we call life with you.

Love is in the air

love-is-in-the-air-600x411Thoughts on this love matter you speak of? It’s all over, in the air so to speak. Love is a subjective thing though, so what is it really? What does it really mean to experience love?

Well love is the warmth and excitement you get from seeing a special person. The tingle in your feet, the racing heart in your chest, the lump in your throat, the hair rising up on your skin. Sweaty palms, birds flying around in your stomach, words seemingly escape your mouth, then all train of thought goes blank.

The feeling you get from that person, like you’re on another far-plane and there’s no such thing as bad days. That is the feeling of love.
