Love Is...

Hello dear readers,
I hope you had a wonderful start of the week. Before heading home today, I wanted to comment on a wonderful post written by Sierra from Ocean DreamsShe talks about her first love and how heartbroken she was after such unforgettable experience ended; but she also talks about finding love again and discovering a whole other meaning to it, and something that I really loved about the post was the second to last paragraph, where she reminds us of something extremely important that everyone should remember:

"[...] love is not desperation, is not always fireworks, is not sacrificing everything, is not materialism, is not becoming a weaker person. My haunt managed to make me feel inferior and not good enough, no haunt or person for that matter should ever make you feel this way Ocean Dreamers. Instead love is mainly loyalty, cherishing someone, not leaving them, consistency not manipulation, improving someone and encouraging them to be an even better person, having the same goals, and trust [...]"

had an argument with my boyfriend recently, and sometimes when that happens I get sad because things are not perfect. But once in a while, we need a reminder that that's how love is supposed to be... not perfect. We need difficult moments to learn, to grow as people. We need 'tests' for our love to be stronger [the distance, in my case, is an excellent example]. Next time I have an argument with him, I want to remember Sierra's words; I don't want to try to manipulate the subject. I want to understand him and for him to understand me, thus helping each other become better. Sometimes we all forget to do that...  and sometimes we may not notice it, but the very own roots of the problems are the clues that that person cares about you and loves you in that 'perfect' way you desire. 



  1. I just finished reading her post, it was a really great story that she shared. I have felt the same way when I have gotten into arguments with my fiance, where I feel horrible that for that moment that things were seemingly not perfect. And like you mentioned, love is not perfect, and arguments are going to happen in relationships and that is okay.

  2. I agree. Thank you for sharing. :)

  3. I really like this post! It's so true. I recently posted the following quote on my blog, which I think is in line with what you've (and ocean dreams) said:

    "He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry. He’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy who is perfect for you." ~ Bob Marley

  4. Thanks so much love for doing a post on love and what it is - glad I could help inspire you to write about it. You are such a sweetheart, I hope you have an amazing night. Oh, and don't feel bad about it at all, but my name is actually Sierra. Thanks again love! :)

  5. So true - life is sooo not perfect. But looking back on imperfections throughout life and learning from it makes us stronger, like you said. Also, I find some imperfections endearing - like how my husband at 28 STILL can't swim, hahahaha.

  6. Thank you all for your comments! I must say I made a little mistake by putting "Kelly" instead of Sierra. Sierra is her name, and she has a lovely blog as I said. I really like that Bob Marley quote, thank you Miss Moose. And Dionne, that is cute hehe. I hope he doesn't stop trying, one day he will learn :)

  7. That is so funny we did the same blog title... great minds think alike : )

  8. It's so true. I'm not dating anyone right now, but I'm working on getting over a crush. I still like him...a lot...but a few things have made me not completely trust him, and if I can trust him then why would I want to even contemplate dating him? Trust is a must for any relationship I have; they don't have to be perfect, but there has to be trust. It make so much sense, yet my heart isn't quite ready to listen yet.

    Great post!


Yes! Put your cursor on that lovely white box and start typing :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!
