PRUE HALLIWEL ::: OBSERVER OF LIFE

i don't want to get to the end of my life and find that i have just lived the length of it... i want to also have lived the width of it as well... smiling when the sun rises... dreaming until the sun hides... but for now, i'm letting go... and this goodbye isn't just a new start... it confirms my submission to waiting... while searching...

saying i love you...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

three special words... “I Love You”... it is what we would always be hearing when we talk and express love... somebody out there may be waiting to hear these from us... and if we're sincere about it, we can't be reluctant... the big issue, of course, to some of us is WHEN to say it... but is there really a good timing... if you feel love towards anyone, romantic or not, there's got to be no standard or basis or qualified sign when to express it in three big words...

most people worry if the other person feels the same way... and are either hoping or fearing if the other person will say it back to them or not... let's not be this way... it sounds like a cliche but having to say 'i love you' from the heart means having to love without expecting... big deeds for any normal being... but may be... just may be... as soon as we stop expecting, the same affection and appreciation will be endowed to us...

where am i coming from anyway? well, aside from the fact that i really am 'in-love and loving' these days, this entry is also the result of a promise to my friends...
