An open heart

ettika-earrings
Whatever happened to romance? Perhaps I’ve just been one of the “unlucky” ones, but I always find myself in the same situation from one after the other. In no way am I in a rush for anything, but naturally I’m a lover. The thought of falling in love adds a sense of tranquility all over my body and soul. I love everything to do with love, and although things don’t always work out, I never give up on it.

Our life path is such an interesting thing — even when we think it’s complex it really isn’t. We may get into these situations where we feel it’s not in our control, and even if it’s not going in the direction we want it, the way we handle it is in our full control. What I’ve learned is that putting your heart on your sleeve doesn’t always guarantee results — that’s okay. I know that when heartache occurs, “tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all”, initially feels completely inadequate. But as you give yourself as much needed time to heal and rebuild a relationship with yourself again, you then realize how important these chapters are to have in your life story. Every person who enters into your life is always going to be an experience or lesson for you to grow from.

Love is a drug,
& when you’re in it
you’re blinded by it.
It’s only natural to sometimes get caught up in a song or two that remind you of certain people, places, and special moments. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve imagined and reevaluated memories that meant the most to me at the time. It’s crazy how joy and sadness can be blended into one from remembering a specific look, a touch, or a smile from someone who you once knew. Regardless of how things ended up, I never regret any of those moments and feelings since they were created and added into my life for a reason. I’ve had just as many good times as bad times — I’ve loved in different time zones and gotten on planes just to be with it — I’ve laughed and cried, yet felt like I had it all — heck, I loved every moment of it and wouldn’t trade my love stories for the world.

  1. Ah I love this post! Not only are the photos beautiful (I mean like always though), but your post is so beautiful. It is so clear that you love so deeply. I hope that one day someone who loves just as much as you do can inhale that and immerse you with it.
    You know that saying “love finds you when you’re not looking”? it’s so true. And as you already know not to look, it’s hard to be patient when you feel like you’re doing everything you can to let the stars align. but don’t worry, it will totally come! My boyfriend came out of NOWHERE let me tell ya haha. It was my third year of college and I was not expecting to meet anyone new because of how shy I was already so if the stars can align for me, it’s only a matter of time my dear! I love that you never give up and give everyone new a fair chance. I hope you find your love <3

      Thanks Linda! You’re seriously the sweetest thing ever and you have such uplifting words that help a lot <3. How long have you been with your boyfriend??? My last serious relationship came out of nowhere too, in fact the night that I met my ex I was trying to make out with this guy I liked LOL 😛

    This was such a beautiful post. We are definitely mind readers, I’ve decided. I’ve never had a deep relationship, but every guy I have dated, even if it was just 2 dates– there was always something to learn from. And you are 100% correct– none of
    Us can control what happens in our lives, but we can control how we react
    To them.

      For sure! Even just a simple date you can learn a lot from…it’s crazy how much you can learn in just a few hours….good and bad lol. We just gotta live in the moment and when something happens it happened for for that reason.

  5. It’s so so true what you said about how every person is a lesson. I try to think about breakups and lost friendships and, you know, bad things in general as lessons learned and relevant experiences 🙂

      Definitely, for me it’s sometimes to get past when someone hurt me whether it was a friend or a ex boyfriend, but we all eventually find something better <3

    Such gorgeous photos and what lovely words you’ve shared. For me, love was something that came along when I least expected it. It’s definitely not a natural state for me, but I’m definitely softened to it, hoping I will continue to do so 🙂

      Love the the greatest feeling when you didn’t expect it! I think especially now a days that’s very rare since there’s so many online dating apps lol

  8. This is a very beautiful post. I’m a lot like you, when I love, I really love deeply. Trust me though, when you least expects it, love will find you and it will be better than before but I also believe that one has to be ready for it and accepts it when it does come along. Your photos are beautiful! xx

    • Stacey says:

      I know it’s late to reply but I loved your comment that I just has to say thanks! The part you said about being ready for it too is very true. I’ll definitely keep that in mind too. Thanks again Ann-Marie!
