SOULMATES (VALENTINE’S DAY REFLECTIONS)

Somehow, out of all the twists and turns

our lives could have taken, and out of all

the chances we might have missed, it almost

seems like we were given a meant – to – be

moment … to meet, to get to know each

other, and to set the stage for a special

            togetherness.

 

When I’m with you, I know I am in

the presence of someone who makes my

life more complete.  I feel like you’re

my soul mate, and I want you to know

that my world is reassured by you, my

tomorrows need to have you near, so

many of my smiles depend on you and

my heart is so thankful that you are here.

                        I LOVE YOU!

A SOULMATE

A Soulmate is someone you can

be completely comfortable with.

Someone with whom you share unconditional love

and when you look into each other’s eyes,

you know that you are home.

I AM BLESSED

I AM BLESSED

Every night I count my blessings

and I‘m thankful for each one

’cause I know I‘ve not been promised

I‘ll see the rising sun

 

Every moment is so precious

every day is special too

but the memories that I treasure most

have all been made with you

 

You are the love I‘ve longed for

You are my dream come true

and I know each day

that I am Blessed

when I wake up next to you

Happy Valentine’s Day 2017

There is nothing quite so wonderful as waking up with your BELOVED!!!

ROLLING THE DICE

ROLLING THE DICE

By Charles Robert Lindholm  2-7-2017  at 4:10 a.m.

Some times you take your chances

you roll the dice and stay

you bet your heart and risk it all

living in harms way

 

you’ve heard about the rumors

but they’re not scaring you

you’ll beat the odds of losing

with you they will be true

 

and so it goes

but with some time

the truth starts sinking in

as you’re picking up the pieces

of a broken heart, again

 Been there, done that!  Not so much fun when it’s over.  It’s hard to explain the magical thinking that comes over you when you actually suspend rational thinking in the face of reality.  Gambling is that way.  You know the odds are stacked against you from the “get go” but hey!  You are going to beat them and come out the winner, right? 

Sometimes love can be that way too.  We are so hyped up on the thrill of “being in love” as we are speeding past the multiple warning signs that the bridge is out that we can’t understand how we ended up in a crash – “It seemed so right?”

I’m guessing this is the kind of thing they (other crash victims) are talking about when they say, “Love is blind?”  Sometimes your love interest may be hiding behind a mask but more often than not they are actually hiding in plain sight, right before your eyes.  The problem is that you are not seeing straight. 

Everything is blurred and tinted by “being in love”.  Amazingly, some will even come right out and tell you the way it is but you don’t believe it because with you it will be different.  What you believe is that your love will “conquer all”.

Picking up the pieces is painful after a crash.  Hopefully, we learn to be more careful, to make better choices, to listen to better advice from others who love us and from our inner self, instead of just dusting ourselves off and starting to look for the next “ride”.

Your Soulmate is out there!  It’s just better if you let them find you rather than you trying to “Hunt them down” and trying to make it happen.

I hope you have or will find your Soulmate, sooner rather than later!

A CONSCIOUS COMA

 By CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM  2-2-2017 AT 4:00 A.M.

 

I CAN SURVIVE

WITHOUT YOU

BUT WHY

WOULD I,

WANT TO

DO THAT?

 

SURVIVING IS NOT LIVING

IT’S AN IMPOSTER

A POSER

GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS

A CONSCIOUS COMA

COPYCAT OF LIVING

 

A HEART THAT GOES ON BEATING

WITH A SOUL THAT DOESN’T CARE

A MIRROR WITH NO REFLECTION

AND A MIND THAT ISN’T THERE

 

I CAN SURVIVE

WITHOUT YOU

BUT WHY

WOULD I,

WANT TO

DO THAT?

 

A ME WITHOUT YOU

WHAT WOULD IT BE

BUT A CONSCIOUS

COMA

Here is the Motivation for “Conscious Coma”

How do you know if you have found your Soulmate?

How do you know if you have found your Soulmate?  When you both pick out the exact same card for your Anniversary!  When two hearts beat as one. When you always get excited about being able to get back home to see your Sweetie.

When you look around your life and your home and the most important thing you see is your Soulmate.  When you can remember where and when and why you did this or that and how you came to pick out that souvenir or admire an old photo you will know the feeling.

We live in a retirement community (15,000 people) not too far from the main road, and it never fails that at least once a day you can hear a siren go by and the reality of “The Circle of Life” is once again impressed upon you.  When I was younger I could never quite understand how it was that so often when one spouse of a couple who had been married for  30, 40 or 50 years passed on that the other spouse, who seemed to be in good health, would be very likely to pass on within a year of losing their Soulmate.  Now that I have a Soulmate I understand.  They lose the desire to live on without their Beloved!!!

Losing the desire to live – It seems so crazy when the basic instinct of life is self survival at all costs, but for those who have been lucky enough to have found a little Heaven on Earth with a Soulmate it makes perfect sense.

I always feel so sad for the one who is left behind and I have had too many opportunities to see it up close – and we want to be like the ending in the movie “The Notebook” or like the very most romantic shot in the whole movie “Titanic” where the little old couple is shown spooning in their cabin as the water is coming in (that shot made me cry).

If you have been lucky enough to have had a little Heaven on Earth with a Soulmate it makes perfect sense that you would want to be in Heaven again!
