I want love, I want success, in that order. That is, if it was that easy.
Love is a special feeling that nothing else can match. The feeling of love makes you angry, happy,or better yet, bipolar. That's the best part. Compared to everything else in life, for example food, love can make you feel differently every moment. Love reminds me that the best part about life is its imperfections. Life can be on your side today, but tomorrow take you through hell. It's like riding a roller coaster... is it going down, turning or what? Then, you blink and it's the end of the roller coaster. Love moves so fast that you forget about time, the ups and down, and just take it for what it is. If you think about it, we accept life for the pain in the butt that it is, just like we accept the complexity of love. You get out of it, what you put in. There is no time for confusion, you want it or you don't. If anything, love holds us accountable to who we are, which is why love is afar from some of our lives; And that's said in a situational way.
Better said, love requires the things that we oversee. Truthfully, love is about more than you (and me). Love is about truth. The truth in feelings, affection, commitment, and resiliency. Through feelings, you show your admiration to the person that is special to you. Affection is empowered by your feelings. The more affection you give, the more feelings you share with the person. In regards to commitment, it speaks for itself. You either have loyalty or you don't. Lastly, through resiliency you show your ability to move past hard rocks in your relationship. Love is complex, so resiliency is the ultimate challenge in every relationship. When the love gets tough, what do you do? Do you run or resolve your part in the relationship? Sometimes, its best to do both. However, that's another topic for another day... Love is always on my mind, because I believe in it. I believe that it will give me special happiness. Put it like this, I want love.
Being able to spell, means you're a success right? Yeah, true, if you're ten years old. On the verge of 20 years old, success looks differently and means something way more complicated than ABC's and 123's. There is no standard for success, besides the one we set for ourselves. For example, Oprah Winfrey. After she accomplished her very popular talk show, she ventured on and established her own television network. Of course, her network wasn't an immediate hit because all things take work. Basically, success wasn't given to Oprah when she launched her network and success will not be given away to you either. The bottom line is, when you want to achieve something, work to achieve it and you will achieve it. Ambition is a powerful feeling because its empowered by motivation and commitment. The energy that motivation and commitment provide is astounding!
We can want this and that, but what are we going to do to get those things?
