Just Wondering

Have you ever been afraid to want something too much?
To allow yourself to hope for what you've always wanted?
To dare to let go of your doubts for a while and think you deserved it?
To be brave enough to open your heart with no guarantee of return?

Scary stuff, huh?


Sorry I haven't been around much. I have a computer-related shoulder injury. No kidding. It hurts a lot (yes, I'm a big baby). I've decided to blame the person who invented ergonomics.

Oh God yes, to all of the above. Although the opening of the heart one always fucks me in the end. Every stinking time.

Scary stuff indeed.....

In the course of our lives, we sometimes spring to life again, so swiftly, so effortlessly, it makes a terrible fool of us if it doesn't work! But sometimes it's worth it!

I with Queen, every single time, so much that part of me is broken beyond repair.

Yes. And then I have to remind myself that nothing is free, nothing is easy. I don't know if I ever truly let myself go. The closest I've ever been to completely free is with Mr. Zoom - so that time it paid off. Huge.

Stupid life making the good stuff only reachable through crap stuff.

Oh yeah. And while opening, I try to control so it ain't as scary which makes it scarier when I fail to control. This is also the girl that sometimes wonders if she more afraid of success than failure.

QoP - Sometimes the part in between the opening and the ending makes it all worthwhile. The endings hurt like hell, but if we try real hard, we can remember and cherish the sweet parts in the middle.

Ron - When it comes to matters of the heart, I've lost count of the number of times I've felt foolish. Still, it's better than giving in to hopelessness.

Spin - "beyond repair"? ... I can't wait to hear you retract those words. You're far too HOT to give up on Love.

Zoooom - You and Mr. Zoooom are perfect!

Aisha - I'm still learning to give up control and make friends with my fear.
Love is a gift; and like any true gift, our generosity shouldn't be motivated by what we expect in return. We can't make someone else love us by giving them Love. It just doesn't work that way .... easy to say, hard to do.

Yes...to all of it...fear kicks me in the ass...but how boring is it NOT to take a chance? Easier said than done...I know.

Hope you are feeling better soon, baby ; )

To be brave enough to let the dream of having it die?

Sigh, yes.

Chick - Perhaps nothing truely precious is free. We pay for the really good stuff by putting our hopes, dreams and hearts on the line.

NNM - Heartbreaking grief is another level of courage altogether, isn't it?

Lovely Lady,

I've been there more times than I care to remember.

It's the life of hermit for me.

Nos-too - You? a hermit? No way! I simply won't allow it!

Hey girl!!!

Long time... I know.

To answer your question: The way I see it, you have to take chances in life to truly live.

Love ya :-)

I've got cold chils just thinking about it. Yes. Yes I do.

Yes.
