What just happened is not an isolated event. Things like this happen on a beautifully regular basis in my life. They are why I turned from someone who thought the world was completely doomed, to believing that the world is filled with beautiful, kind, caring souls. I’d been hanging out … Continue reading

E.E. Cummings


“Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.”

I stumbled across this quote on one of my layovers. I was on a 10 hour layover in Richmond, VA watching a movie. Layovers like this do not give you time to enjoy the place so it was a time of relaxation. As I watched the movie one of the characters stated this quote. After the movie I proceeded to look it up and discovered how much I enjoyed and related to the quote. It has now become one of my all time favorite quotes.

Follow your heart no matter how tough life gets and don’t be afraid of taking chances. I have always believed that your heart will lead you in the right direction and that at times it is smarter than your brain. Trusting my gut or my heart has always lead…

30 Signs You’re A Lucky Girl Dating A Simple Guy



We all thought we wanted the mysterious, romantic “bad guy.” We thought we wanted the guy that had feelings as deep as the ocean, and knew exactly what to say. It’s natural to want to be a part of that enticing image painted before you in romance novels and movies with pretty bad actors. However, often times the reality is not as beautiful as the dream. That guy isn’t really the best guy. The excitement of the drama wears away quickly when the stress and instability start to swallow you. We all want the epic love, but the best lovers are also the best friends.

The men you stay with are the ones with dependable, honest, comical and caring natures. They are the ones that put you first, and bring simple laughter to your life, rather than more stress. They are laid back and positive. They don’t try to consume…

26 Signs You Basically Rock At Being a Couple



People are like puzzle pieces. You search and search for the right ones. You pick up a few that don’t fit, and frustratingly place them back in the pile. A few fall on the floor, and you seemingly lose them forever at that point. A few feel absolutely impossible to find. But sometimes, a piece just fits. You don’t have to rotate it around. You don’t have to force it into the space. It just falls into place seamlessly. Sometimes, relationships are like that too. Sometimes, you just fit, and it’s incredibly clear that you are supposed to be that way.

1. Your personalities compliment each other well, and you bring out the brightest, most comfortable versions of each other.

2. You appreciate and are genuinely interested in each other’s passions.

3. You get along simply as friends, naturally and easily. Even when you do disagree, i’ts clear that you’re working…

Finding Someone Who ‘Gets’ You: The Electric Feeling of Connecting with Another Intuitive Thinker


78196986What is the thing you desire most in a relationship? What is the crucial piece you crave or must have in order for your heart to sing? After my marriage ended, I swore I would never be in another relationship without a deep connection. I wanted someone to ‘get me’ and I them.

A key element to have in common with your partner?

According to a study of 375 married couples done by Myers Briggs, the most likely function to have in common with your spouse is the perceiving one; the one that explains how you take in the world and what information you like and trust. There are two options in the perceiving category: Sensing and Intuition. We all use both options to a degree but people who have a Sensing preference are more comfortable with facts, details, sequential steps, past experience and the information that is available to the senses…

10 Common Problems Old Souls Experience At Least Once In Their Life

we are just weird in general…

Thought Catalog

intrepidation intrepidation

1. The inexperience of feeling truly understood.

Old souls can be seen as strange people because they often hold unconventional ideals and standards of living. They often feel a sense of separation from themselves and the “real world” because things like obtaining great wealth, owning a lot of expensive possessions, and other traits of living a materialistic lifestyle aren’t really an interest to them. In a world fueled by consumerism this can seem kind of weird to most people. Having a different set of expectations and ideas about living can make it hard to feel like anyone truly understands you and what drives you in life.

2. People don’t understand how easygoing and forgiving you can be at times.

Old souls tend to have a philosophical viewpoint about life and look at things on a larger spectrum. What does this mean? When problems arise and old souls are forced…

10 Fantastic Gifts For Your Perfect (And Introverted) Significant Other

So it’s time for you to pick up a gift, eh? While this might be a breeze for some of the people on your list, others pose more of a challenge. Take, for example, the introvert in your life. What on earth do you get the person who seems withdrawn, quiet, and hard to know? (Bonus tip: we only seem like that. Put a little effort into getting to know us and you’ll see how fabulous introverts are.)

Anyway, we put our little introverted heads together and compiled a list of the best gifts for our people. We are a varied lot, and have a wide array of interests and passions, but there are a few things we can all agree on. Books, for example, are always a safe bet. We introverts love being able to leave behind this world for a while and…

15 Little Panic Attacks All Introverts Have When They Go Home For The Holidays

The Family StoneThe Family Stone

1. When you have not had enough alone time and are starting to feel like you are about to lose your mind. You’re like, can I just go to a Starbucks alone and sit there in silence and have nobody ask me about what I’m doing with my life for just ten damn minutes please?

2. When you’re at a restaurant with what feels like a hundred relatives and the volume is too loud and there are too many conversations happening at once and you just want to retreat into a corner, throw some earbuds in, and listen to your most calming, relaxing music (Enya?) so you can find some semblance of peace… if only for one freaking second of your life!

3. When nobody in your family knows anything about personal boundaries and how do you tell your mom who’s been waiting months for you to…

Why I’ll Never Learn How To Be The One Who Cares Less

Thought Catalog

simonlefebvre simonlefebvre

I’ve always heard the one who cares more in a relationship has less power and the one who cares less always wins. Maybe this is true but I think while it’s easy to not give a shit it’s even easier to love someone.

I have very idealistic views about life and relationships in general. This is something I know and I’m aware of. I look at life on a larger scale and attempt to make all of my connections with people meaningful if I can, if they’ll allow it. That’s just the problem though – most people are closed off, emotionally weary, healing wounds other people have left. It’s hard to break through those walls when the other person isn’t open or receptive to having anything deeper than surface level interactions.

So many people live in this grey area where they’re barely existing, partaking in experiences with people they…
