All of Me

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you've already seen me gush about this song, All of Me, by John Legend. But, I needed to post it on my blog too. :) I've always loved John Legend's voice, but I think anyone could sing this song and it would still have the same impact because the words are SO unbelievably  beautiful.  I'm in love with this song!

THESE LYRICS! I'm a huge sap... I guess?! But-this could be one of my top favorite songs about Love.

My head's under water But I'm breathing fine You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

'Cause all of me Loves all of you Love your curves and all your edges All your perfect imperfections Give your all to me I'll give my all to you You're my end and my beginning Even when I lose I'm winning 'Cause I give you all of me And you give me all of you

How many times do I have to tell you Even when you're crying you're beautiful too The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood You're my downfall, you're my muse My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues I can't stop singing, it's ringing, in my head for you

Hope you all have a beautiful week. Til' my next post!

Love-Lauren

Sincerity

I was thinking tonight about what makes someone attractive. There are many things but the most obvious one to me is sincerity. You can tell when someone is being honest and open with you, or if they have their guard up and aren't giving you the full truth. Being honest with someone involves a vulnerability that is undeniably attractive. I've always believed that the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. And, life is too short to be anything but completely honest with yourself and to other people. "Mystery" is fascinating and all, but it's not what keeps  things held together; sincerity is.

Sometimes when I write things or I talk to someone, I get concerned about being TOO  honest, I start to get wrapped up in feeling like I need to remain a mystery. But-after thinking about it, I'd rather be too honest..than hold back saying something and regret it later on. Our time is too precious and you may never get a chance to say or do those things you wanted to.

Here are a few quotes I saw tonight that resonated with me.

"Sincerity is not to say everything you think, but to mean everything you say."

“You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.”

"To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to."

Love, Lauren
