Love, is an unnatural attachment to another living thing. It’s the root cause of most personal problems people have. – Virginia C. Andrews

Virginia stated this about love and some I agree with….that it’s not something natural. I know that it cannot be forced. True love just happens so it is unnatural. I think that people get into trouble when it comes to love when you are with someone that you don’t love or that doesn’t love you. That’s where the problems come in. We’re quick to jump on certain feelings and love while it just happens it also takes grooming, and time, and patience, and understanding and a whole lot of other things.

What is normal? Normal is only ordinary; mediocre. Life belongs to the rare, exceptional individual who dares to be different. – V.C. Andrews

I know for myself that I’m not normal and I’m okay with that. I agree with Virginia’s statement about being normal. Normal is boring, ordinary and sometimes that is something that we strive for…. we all want some kind of sense of normalcy. But I think life is better lived by the rare or exceptional people who are artists, musicians, inventors, writers, creators…however whatever makes you different. So dare to be different and unique.

I remembered Grandmere Catherine used to tell me your first impressions about people usually prove to be the truest because your heart is the first to react. – V.C. Andrews

This goes to prove or may prove that the heart wants what it wants. We also can sense what a person is like by our gut feelings without them even talking. Those instincts are something that we really need to listen to and pay close attention to because they tend to give away true nature of people. If you get those little hairs on the back of your neck that stand up or an ill or sick feeling in the pit of your stomach or maybe it’s the good feeling, the butterflies, the spark….regardless we need to be more self aware and pay attention to those signs.
