This one's for you :)


Some people in our lives are so special n precious that u jus wana guard them n hide them in a corner of ur heart where no one would ever inflict any harm on them, life would never be mean or unfair to them, no evil will ever brush past them.... I guess thats what they call Love!!!!
this post is my attempt to send into the universe the gratitude i feel for finally having met the love of my life....
well i would be lying if i say i wasn bothered or i was too busy in my career to think of love n such stuff... i may have laughed over the subject a dozen of times with close friends over a cup of coffee but we all knew life was acting up big time... all of my friends are doing well professionally but none of us were truly happy.. we all had arrived in our ways...proved ourselves in various walks of life.... climbed mountains to reach where we all r today but most of us were groping in the dark for the "love of our life"....
have u ever noticed life gives u the best of stuff when u least expect it to..or when u r so caught up in some insignificant event that u couldn care for anythng else...
i guess thats how i was introduced to the one i m dedicating this post to....
The universe does conspire to give u wat u wish for with all ur soul n conviction..n i m lucky my prayers were answered.. i dono wat to call him... my fiance or my boy friend or whatever.. i jus realised u cant name some emotions ..they jus form the core of ur existence and thats it... he wrote a beautiful quote for me which goes like

"Love is primarily giving, not recieving. Giving is the
highest expression of potency. Giving is more joyous than
recieving,not because it is deprivation, but because
in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness...."
Erich Fromm

its a beautiful thought... we r all so consumed by the thought of acquiring , receiving that we forget to give... when we give unconditionally frm our soul we shall reach the divinity that love is all about.... n thats where i wana go with him........

Sometimes we discover the best things when not actually searching...When you give more in a relationship...you receive more...Wish you much joy!

You got it so right! Life springs surprises on us when we least expect it to :) Sometimes the joy is just in the giving. When the happiness of the "love of your life" becomes your source of sunshine :)
Wish you the worlds happiness Nups!!

Wowiee !! That's some powerful love gurl .. :) You are lucky to have found your special someone, and I hope you cherish him not just today, but forever. Both of you, each other !!

It's true... Life takes the most incredible turns when least expected !! I remember when my hubby and I had started talking, he'd asked me what I craved in life and I'd responded ... " emotional stability " And touch wood, I found that in each other ... I too was lost and found myself again when I met him ...

I find it weird though , that it's when we know we are content with ourselves in all other fields do we turn around and find that which we truly want in life !!

The quote your " to be " has written is truly beautiful !! For love is about giving to each other ... It's about loving and being and caring and understanding and knowing when to walk towards each other even if walking together seems hard :)

Cheers gurl !! Wish you both happiness always ...

ps - funny how a love story, who ever's it might be totally warms us all inside :)

Nups,

Quote full of depth. Very true too. Good that you posted this as I had been thinking of asking you - when is the D-Day? I am sure you will prove to be a good soulmate to him with lots of tender care.
