Something Nice from Nice

Made me wanna go visit NICE!

CATHERINE RYAN HOWARD

I’m in Nice.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know that this isn’t my first time in Nice. For 6-8 weeks every Autumn for three years beginning in 2011 – I’ll give you a moment to catch your breath after that weird sentence construction – I came here, supposedly, to write. That sounds very decadent, I know, but I was living with my parents at the time and had no real financial responsibilities. (Now I have rent to pay in Dublin “The Rent On This Telephone Box Will Make Your Eyes Water” City and university fees to cover, so it all balances out.) Plus the work I was doing was freelance, so all I needed to do it was a laptop and an internet connection.

In 2009, I’d rented a somewhat isolated holiday home near the sea in East Cork for a six week period that started…

Do not settle with the thought of finding a man who just loves you more

People kept saying that find a man who loves you more or a guy who exceeds the love you give in return. Yes, he may love you more than you do to him but haven’t you realized that is being selfish? You want to be with someone who’s not gonna leave you, someone who’s going to stay forever. You are too full of the idea of yourself being in someone’s arms for years that you forgot the effect of those “ideals” to your man.

Be kind to your man. Give back. Be fair to each other. No one should feel inferior

My friend, we (women) are made not for men to spoil us nor provide all the dream we have. God made us to help them. Stop measuring love. If he loves you, love him back. If he loves you so much, love him so much! If he fails to remind you that he loves you, continue loving him and do not be driven by what the world dictates to not keep a man who doesn’t love you more. Remind him through acts of love and he will do the same if you’re the one who forgets.

Let us understand that this is not a measurement of who loves more, rather if he loves the Lord. I know that the point of you wanting to be loved more, is so that he will not leave you. Hey, if your man loves God? I tell you, he is more likely to stay. He will endure. He loves God so much that he obeys Him. He would not want to hurt God by hurting you; the helpmate God created for him.

Now, if your man loves you more but does not love God? Rethink. He may fail and break your heart into pieces again and would not even mind. But if he loves the Lord our God? His faith to God itself will strengthen your relationship.

Genuine love from cheap people? Don’t even presume.

Adolescents nowadays are fond of hopping from one guy/girl to another; boys exchanging girlfriends from the same circle of friends. I am very much saddened seeing teenagers posting on social medias about what they are looking for towards a guy. Not even realizing that the guy who will love them for reals would not need to see those posts, nor need to be nagged about what they “ideally” search for a man. This goes the same for guys out there towards a girl.

Genuine love goes through a process. A couple for 50 years didn’t reach that stage without tough molding and continuous learning process.

You know what they say, YOU CANNOT FIND THE ONE WHO WILL TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY IN CLUBS OR BARS. If you are jealous of relationships lasting long despite imperfections, then you need to wake up and step away from worldly assumptions of finding the love of your life. You cannot expect genuine love from cheap people. You cannot expect to be taken seriously from the people you just met on facebook (w/c can 98% of the time, be disguising to be a handsome looking guy or a sexy chick) nor from people you just danced within clubs and had pre-game with at the bar.

Ladies and gentlemen, the person of your life whom you have been dreaming about? Can be found from decent places, introduced to you by a friend of a mutual friend and a believer of God. I don’t literally mean cheap people, it’s somewhat like a metaphor of cheap instances where you found the person you can brag about to your friends. You found cheap love because you were in a hurry, you’re too desperate to have one, so you didn’t bother to assess the quality of the love you’re going to have.

You need to discern the most genuine from what is mostly a distraction. Stop “fitting in” to the world. You will not find your happiness from the love story of others; basically from those people you’ve been stalking on social media. YOU NEED NOT TO LIKE WHAT THEY LIKE nor COPY THE STANDARDS THEY HAVE IN MIND FOR A RELATIONSHIP. Seek God and genuine love will be the one to find you 🙂

Within me.

yLOP9XIO6XsWh4JQxVKe9OLNGB544PgaGpF9nO57OyifSI90QDO_2eEhcP-G_BGEMkLfGQR1f6VwEt3Q6kafDWwIxXotrSr3l0M5BZDlaL7KP3fEasdr7DQ08yrxp-wGm2v2ig=w470-h313-nc

Since grade school, I have always been fond of writing and public speaking. However, during college, been too busy with deadlines and more and more quizzes that I get no time to pursue my passion for writing essays or poems or stories. I am not superb on blogging; not even close on exquisite photo shooting, yet I feel the desire within me to start talking, start sharing my thoughts and learnings to people; technically, to start from scratch.

You see, I have faith that made me pursue this passion. And I know that babysteps can go a loooooong way 🙂
