PROJECT CUPID x 21-7 MAGAZINE

The short story that I submitted and wrote myself.

Everyone has their own love story. I always sat and wondered when will mine ever unfold. At the young age of 16, I came across somene who to me seemed to be Prince Charming but really was a douchebag wrapped up in aluminum foil. Oh how he swept me off my feet, so I thought. Little did I know the chaos that would take place causing rippled effects in my life. Everything seemed great at first. But then I saw him for who he really was. A monster, the devil in disguise. Never have I met an individual so cold hearted and full of malice. I endured 5 years of abuse. Abuse in all aspects. Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually. I lost myself, I lost my friends and worst of all I lost my faith. Something I promised I would always hold on to. And yet I allowed this guy to come and take it from me. I began to distance myself from the world. I hated everything and everyone, couples I saw that were happier only caused me to become more resentful and bitter. Typical scorned woman right? Right. After 5 years I finally gathered up the courage, it was the final blow, literally final blow because he hit me in the face pretty darn hard. I left and never looked back. It took me 4 years of being single to finally find ME again. To find closure and comfort. I gained my treasures back and found some new ones along the way. I always say things happen for a reason and I often use one of my favorite words. Kismet. This was all meant to be. Even if it took for me to get hurt so badly to find where I needed to be in life. And at this moment in time , this is where I need to be. After much prayer and faith, I finally met someone. Someone who treats me like a QUEEN. Someone who listens to me, someone who is not just a lover but a friend. I know that things will not be perfect but I know what it takes. I know what I want in life. He pushes me to do better, to be better, to smile more. And when I feel like I am slipping he is right there to give me a pep talk. All of his kind words has taking some getting used to because of course my first thought and reaction were " This Dude is Bullshitting me right now". But I built up a wall to keep love out and he just broke those walls down. I can't say that we are madly in love, not yet at least. But it is getting there. Everyday is a step by step progress, every day we learn more and more about one another. And one thing I do know is this, although I did find a wonderful man even if things did not work out we will remain great friends and most importantly I found love...I learned to fall in love with the woman in me, the woman my parents raised right and the woman God created me to be. I finally started to love me.

Smokey Purple Look By SEPHORA

Love Happens.


Eloise & Bruce; both characters made me adore this movie. Eloise was sort of a woman scorned, she has been hurt so when a man gets close she conjures up these negative results and outcomes in her mind leading her to believe that it won't work. Bruce a grief counselor who helps everyone over come their loss but has yet to deal with the loss of his wife.Two individuals who have suffered pain and heart ache cross pathes , both are afraid but both eventually fall in love to give this thing called 'LOVE' another try. "This too shall pass". This movie spoke to me, it touched me, it made me cry of course. As much as I say I do NOT like romance movies, I am a sucker for a good romance flick. And this by far is one of my many favorites. I truely believe that no one is destined to be alone for the rest of their lives. I used to walk around with that mentality. But it is true when they tell you , not to look for love because it will find its way to you. And guess what......CUPID FINALLY STRUCK ME.


I have met the most amazing man. My prayers have finally been answered. I won't say we are in love [yet] but we really really I mean REALLY like each other a lot. We really care for one another. It is so bizarre how we both feel so comfortable around each other. Like we have been great friends for years. I feel like I can be myself around him, with no fear of being judged. That is an amazing feeling. He has changed my perspective on life, on men, on a lot of things. And I look forward to our friendship/relationship blossoming. He makes me feel wanted, he makes me feel appreciated, he makes me feel like what I have to say matters, he makes me feel....bubbly lol. 

For the first time in years I spent the holidays with someone special. Christmas and New Years. I ended 2010 Happy and started of 2011 Happy. God thank you for your blessings. Help me be a better daughter in Christ , help me to resist temptation, help to stand firm in your word.

So I took pictures of course, ENJOY :)





P.S He met my family (they really like him) and he also came to church with (that is a huge deal to me). And he enjoyed the service *gasp* I will be keeping HIM <3 in my prayers. 


"GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD THAT LED ME STRAIGHT TO YOU"

Sincerely,

NEW YEARS 2011 LOOK
