Dare you to jump

Today's Smile-Inducer : Courage. Courage should not be limited to the confines of a battlefield. It's in the little steps you suck in a breath at, close your eyes and finally plunge in, eyes wide open.

Battle weary and energy-sapped, I crawled into my sanctuary of oblivion to lick my wounds. Dug up a bar of chocolate and indulged in one of my guilty secrets…sappy romances. Watched A Walk to Remember for what must be the 50th time now. And well, let’s put it this way : the faucet leaked for the 50th time.

I don’t want empty promises and sweet nothings. I’m waiting for the love that resides in the cozy pages of female fantasies or the shimmery instruments of actors and actresses. Love that is capable of withstanding the test of time. Love, that is everything Disney has inscribed into the heads of little girls all around the world.

I want it to take on life, leap up, reach out for me, engulf and bury me in a tidal wave of ecstasy. The kind of love that is constant, patient, deeply-abiding. Rob me of all sane thoughts for fickle I may be, but hey, a girl can dream.

Someone once asked me. If you could be with The One for one day, and one day only.. would you give him your everything? I know now that a part of me would crash headfirst into the slimmest glimpse of happily ever after, even if ever after only lasts 24 hours...A fleeting illusion it may be, but fading memories are better than none. What say you?

So here’s my question. Would you trade in a day of your life or brazen through a lifetime of regrets and what ifs?

You know, Joanna... A Walk To Remember is not as bad as P.S. I Love You. I watched A Walk To Remember and I only cried a few times-tht time is when Mandy Moore died.

However, when I watched and read P.S I Love You, my bloody dam bursts, and I cried through the pages and also throughout the movie. OMG, So sad. I'd really love to hate it! *SOBS*

Cleffairy : Oh my ! P.S I love you, I cried from his funeral till well .. the whole time he was dead.Only time I didn't cry was the first 5 minutes :P

It was a wonder anything went into my head through my tear blind eyes ...Which was why I only dared to watch the movie alone..hate leaking in front of people :P

Hi Joanna, laugh when you can, apologise when you should and let go of what you can't change.
Play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything and have no regrets.
Life's too short to be anything but happy.

Live your life with no excuses, love with no regrets.
You have a beautiful Sunday, and keep a song in your heart.
Best regards, Lee.
