Love is Love – (Free Post!)


Happy Valentines Day! (that’s of course, if you celebrate it or have someone to celebrate it.)

I want you to really think about everything as you read this…

Let’s face it; we live in a materialistic and superficial world. We get caught up in things that really don’t matter. We are so caught up in what this person or that person is doing, what they have, what they are wearing, who they are dating, that we don’t ever just sit back and look at our own lives.

I sign on to Facebook and see countless “I hate love” posts and “This holiday is stupid” ( and they’re right about that, it’s a Hallmark holiday :-P). We don’t know how to evaluate situations and ask if it’s worth feeling a certain way. For whatever reason, you may have this feeling but hey, it’s not the end!!! We’ve all had break ups and whether you are at fault or not or even if it’s mutual, LIFE must and will go on. 

Quick Story:

I’ve had my fair share of relationships. For whatever reason, me and any of those great girls aren’t together. Why? Things happen, people fall apart, times change…what it all boils down to is THEY WEREN’T CUT OUT FOR ME…and if you’re reading this and thinking about past love, it should now make sense…

/End story

Life is one gigantic puzzle. Our family, career, hobbies, likes, dislikes, etc. all play a major part but the pieces fit. A relationship is no different.  You cannot expect to fit a puzzle piece in a space it’s not meant for. You will just bend the edges and well…it still won’t fit. 

Like lifting in the gym (c’mon, you knew there would be a fitness reference), the most optimal results take time and A LOT of hard work. It’s progressive. There can and will be setbacks, no doubt about it. How you KEEP MOVING FORWARD will determine your ultimate success. 

So here’s what I say to you: if you are a reader happily involved, ENJOY YOUR DAY. Fellas, cook her something damn good, or at least order out and put it in a pot like you cooked it ;-). If you are single, just keep your head up. Everything happens for a reason. If all those pictures on Instagram and Facebook get you down, sign off…

…if you still can’t seem to shake it, go to the gym and lift…until you can’t anymore…that’s what I did. 🙂


P.S. – Stay away from the chocolate. Nothing tastes as good as being shredded feels. 😛
