On feelings and best friend(s)

“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.” — Louis de Bernieres


That explains it all- it does!

I have no idea how I feel about today. Tomorrow is my cousin's bachelorette party and I have no idea what to wear..I don’t want the week to start yet. I am not in the mood for work. I don’t think I am in the mood for much other than just relaxing, looking at beautiful things and listening to good music.
I was reminded by what was our song. It felt like a milder version of what it feels like when I remember my grandfather.

Guess who is going shopping? I am! And it’s not half as exciting as it should be. Blame it on the PMS. Plus the fact that I woke up with that feeling that someone is not ok. Does anyone have any idea what I am talking about? It’s a gut feeling…or my sixth sense and it didn’t feel good. So shopping therapy it is! With the best friend and the cousin.

Speaking of my best friend, I met this girl yesterday, who knows us both, but hasn’t seen us for ages- or at least me, and for a second, she thought I was her. Mind you, my best friend and I have skin tones that are far from similar- that’s for one. But we tend to have something about us that would remind you of the other. I love you.

Blah days are okay, and shopping days are therapy! At least I consider them therapy!! ;)

Argh!! Damn you PMS... shopping therapy on the contrary... is a bliss.... I understand how you feel Sara... Love the way you write and loved the way you began this post with that quote.....

Feel better soon... Muah

great qoute explains a lot.. but what i am wondering is that why would women solve any issue with shopping..

men would only buy when they need and really need.. so man would go out to the mall just to see what good he can buy.. we waste our money differently thou..

anyway good luck shopping....

That quote is beautiful, it made me sad in a way, but I think it is true and indeed it is a good thing. Thank you for sharing that. I hope you have a fun day shopping as well! Buy something nice for yourself! And feel better! I hope you are all rested up by the end of the weekend!

I love that quote from 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin'. I'm thinking of using it somewhere in my wedding next year :)

I hope you had fun shopping and that whatever made you feel like someone wasn't okay has now gone and that person is okay.

I'm celebrating 19 years of married life tomorrow, my temporary madness / love seems to have gone on a bit and no sign of easing, not complaining though :)

Winnie said...

Oh that is so sweet, my friends are all really different to me but I wonder if people think the same?

UnKown said...

You know.. i knew her when she was 17 and i was 19 ..we passed through a hell alot of things together.. and believe me i still love her up to this min.. but i know that it will never work out and i just dont want to stop thinking about her because it keeps me company in my solitude..

And what a wonderful quote!

Gracie said...

Shopping is always good! Nothing like some good ol' retail therapy. And I too don't feel like working. I wish I was relaxing, being creative and reading.

A very logical way of putting love in words. Beautiful I think. Because it explains that love is not just feeling. It surpasses all the spark and excitement...
