Beyonce has been on a 123-show tour since March. She kicked off 2013 singing the National Anthem at the inauguration and then performed at the Super Bowl. And in between taking care of her small child and Instagramming her every bowel movement she somehow found time to secretly record an entire album PLUS 14 music videos and NO ONE leaked any of it to the world? Meanwhile I have a shelf from ikea that’s been sitting unfinished in a corner since May.
That’s what romance is really all about, that simple smile, that simple kiss, the simple going out of your way to make someones day a better one. When we think of romance, we often connect it to the desired end result of sex. Romance is more than sex, romance is the passion and love and everything else that comes before that. We always mistakenly think that romance requires a five star production.Simple words of love, no longer tease our senses and neither do they light up our face with a smile. The problem lies, not in the repetitively spoken words, but in the lack of passion with which they come out. We expect so much, from the ones we love.
We picture hours of elaborate and expensive preparations for an event that they’ll will never forget. But sometimes simple is better than complex, and the element of surprise can be our greatest friend. It’s about cherishing them for who they are, meaning what you say, laying down in a cuddle watching a movie, saying jokes about each other just so you can hear each other laugh. It’s the noticing, and listening more than anything, it’s showing that appreciation, that’s romance. Maybe you want to make that special someone feel special, but your ideas are running low. Keep it simple, cute and sweet and I promise it will be just as amazing, as anything else. <3
If humans are so smart then why are we the only species that pay to live on the planet we were born on??? Why, while other species are free and wander and live their natural lives, are we slaving away for other people to make money? I refuse to accept “that’s just the way things are” because that’s only the way things are so long as you let them be that way.
