What Does It Mean to Love Someone?

“I will not live without love.” – Vincent van Gogh

Falling in love is easy. Too easy sometimes. We fall in love with someone who’s a little bit different than all the others we have met before, we fall in love when someone tells us something new about ourselves, we fall in love with the way someone acts or talks, we fall in love with people who have traits that are similar or exactly the opposite of ours.

There are just about a million different reasons why we fall in love. Continue reading

Imagination

imagination

“Imagination is the voice of daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that. He dared to imagine everything.” – Henry Miller

When I tell people I’m a writer they usually say something about a writer being required to have imagination. Or something like that. And I don’t think imagination is really that important. Yes, it’s kind of a cool thing, but I don’t think it’s a crucial factor to being a writer, or any other kind of artist, for that matter.

I often say that what we admire most in any form of artistic expression is the human element… that core we can all relate to (or respond to, or understand or hate.) All great stories are about people, about how they interact with each other and how they react to certain events.

Resilience

strength“You never know how strong you are… until being strong is the only choice you have.” – Cayla Mills

I’m going to tell you something no motivational speaker would ever dare tell you: genuine strength can’t be taught, learned, bought, borrowed, or understood. Genuine strength, defined as the ambition, courage, and stamina to do whatever you want to do most in this world comes from the realization that you are the only one who’s going to pay the price for success.

That is it.

You really don’t need someone to keep you motivated, someone to keep an eye on you so you don’t become lazy. There’s no point in doing something if you can’t do it by yourself, for yourself, because you can and want to.

I enjoy watching those motivational videos on Youtube, or reading about this or that person who reached a breaking point in their life. I like to read about struggles that makes us human. But it never really helped me achieve anything.

The truth is, you have to do this by yourself. The moment you can’t find any more excuses, the moment you can’t blame anyone else for your mistakes, that’s when you can either give up or try again. You can run and hide, or simply try to take over the world.

It’s really simple. Continue reading

[Movie Review] Joker: Heartbreaking

irevuo

“The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.”African proverb

Just trying to gather my thoughts and emotions about this movie makes me feel like crying.

Those who are high in social intelligence/empathy will find it hard to watch this movie. It is, contrary to what some might expect, not the origins story of a maniac supervillain who only wants to watch the world burn. Joker tells the story of a man who has to go through one of the worst fates, that of an outcast rejected by society, abandoned by those whose companionship he seeks.

Kill Them With Kindness

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” —  Martin Luther King Jr.

Being mean to someone else, particularly when dealing with situations in which the other person is displaying incompetence, is effortless and often quite effective. The result is that you’ve probably ruined their day. It can be difficult to keep cool in such situations, especially when you feel your precious time being wasted, but that’s the thing about being kind: it’s not supposed to be easy.

There’s often a choice to be made: efficient reproach, or less effective, patient kindness.

By choosing the latter, you’ve made the world a slightly better place.

After all, one cannot be kind unless is kind towards those who least deserve it. Continue reading

Of Kisses and Tears,

Our Valid Thoughts

I can’t stop thinking about him.

About our first kiss; how soft, almost unnoticeable it was.

How it was so quick, so fleeting that I had to take a moment to process if it had really happened.

And then there were the kisses afterwards, more purposeful and full of intent, but delicate nonetheless.

I keep thinking about his lips pressed to my neck, how wonderful a feeling.

How sweet he was, how considerate it all was.

I can’t stop imagining myself underneath him, those same lips on my own once again, but needier than before, as if waiting had taken a toll on us.

It’s been a year since I first imagined those lips grazing upon mine.

But it’s been worth the wait.

Yet, I’m not patient enough to wait even more.


I’m tired of waiting.

I’m crying as I write this.

You made me cry today.

It’s my birthday…
