RELATIONSHIPS: SO YOU THINK YOU ARE RICH?

Congratulations on making all those millions. Who does not like to yield good fruit? All that cash! So you are the hottest thing since sliced bread. Everyone wants a piece of you everyone wants something from you. Now you know you like your coffee (I beg your pardon, your mocha choco something something with a hint of summer something) stirred anti clockwise because you get indigestion if it’s stirred clockwise even if it’s just the one wrong stir! Well, good for you!

So last night when you went to bed, tell me this: who kissed you goodnight? Who was your last call? Who lies next to you? Who cooked you dinner? Let’s assume you answered my question. When you woke up this morning, whom did you call? Your assistant? The office? Your family? What did they say? Was it true? No let me rephrase this. Is it ever about you as the individual you are? Or were they referring to you, the superstar? Does anyone remember your real name superstar? What’s your favourite colour? Movie? Does anyone actually care about anything that does not come out of your pocket? Think about it! So in that moment when you cried and someone reached out and kissed your tears, did they kiss your tears because they love you and hate to see you cry? Or did they kiss the tears because they hoped they would crystallise into money upon touching their lips? Stripped bare of all you own, who are you? Are you anyone significant to anybody? If everything about you these days is about what you wore, what you bought, who you bought and not about what made you laugh or cry and a moment that stopped the world for a second, are you actually living? So back to last night and when you lay in bed, stripped of all your riches and fame superstar no-one even remembers your real name. Therefore you are everything, you are something, but if you have not love, here’s a shocker, you are nobody and you are nothing! You, in the grand scheme of things superstar, are quite un-wealthy! You are nobody until someone loves you. And if you are not persuaded by this point, think of this one instead: you love what you find time to do, what you do in time finds you, make time for love!

RELATIONSHIPS: I’LL CRY TODAY IF I WANT TO!

We live in the crazy world where apparently, we hold destiny in our own hands. We can achieve whatever we desire by following the laws of attraction or praying to our maker, and similar type beliefs. We have to hold on to something right? I intentionally used the idea of faith in a maker and the laws of attraction as examples. These two ideas I subscribe to, except…

What about love? Who knows how this works? I believe that in love, there are no guarantees, but this automatically rubbishes the above ideas. Divorces and break-ups abound everywhere, what did these people do wrong? Did they not pray hard enough? Did they not attract enough positive energy to achieve happily ever after? I am inspired into exploring this idea because during our girls’ night in the other week, a friend of a friend was complimented on being queen bee in her world. Even I am attracted to her when I watch her step out of her black land rover, brushing her hair away from her face, wearing sunglasses that cost almost as much as the car. She told a story about being too busy making a ‘good life’ to remember that she’s celibate. Apparently, she hardly remembers to be lonely; and when she suspects she might be, she counts the money in all her bank accounts, and if said feeling does not cease, she goes shopping in Ann Summers. She had become content with that. Only, the other day she went out with friends and bumped into ‘Mr Remember This?’ ‘Content’, celibate girls all know this man. He comes along from nowhere and dazzles you. It might be charm, unbelievable good looks, similar interests, but whatever the heck it is, he attracts your attention, and when the feeling is mutual, there is nothing crazier. Therefore, when he kisses you the world come to an absolute stand still. You are so sex starved that the electricity flowing through you is almost visible. He reminds you of everything natural that you are missing. When he looks at you with tenderness in his eyes, he awakens within you the once-forgotten cravings of a lonely heart that had bravely learnt to do without.

In effect, we can work hard and make money. If we get knocked down, we get up and try again. We can try repeatedly to make a baby. If not this month heck maybe next month. We can just try. We can build a house and make it look like a home. Red curtains today and the perfect set of pots tomorrow; pot pourri the next. We’ll get there eventually. However, for this issue of love – what makes it work? What brings it our way? The more you try and fail, the less inspired you are to use faith and the laws of attraction to make it happen. You can lose money, take a step back in a career, miss a huge money making deal, but for heartbreak, the feeling is different. Eventually, some people write it off and decide that it is not important, except…. well except it is. I mean there are the lucky few, who this does not apply to, and kudos to you for attracting love your way, but for the other percentage that have not been that lucky, what’s the plan? You block it out, but there will always be Mr/Ms ‘Remember This?’ to remind you, and the truth is, it does matter. Everyone wants a bit of a kiss and a cuddle now and then. For you who sit reading this waiting for my opinion on how to attract love, I say this: I haven’t got a clue mate! I am tongue-tied; and as you know that is a rarity. However, it takes me back to a line I have used in more articles than I care to remember: in love, there are no guarantees. All we can do is hope for the best. I will try to get an answer for you. Today, nothing is forthcoming. I am helpless to this thought and today I will cry if I want to.

PS: Mr/Ms ‘Remember this?’ is almost worth having a long dry spell for, if only for the experience of how they will make you feel. The friend of a friend from the girls’ night in told me this.
