Things I Think About When I Cannot Sleep

•March 19, 2006 • Leave a Comment

It’s a pretty common belief that women use the left, emotional side of their brain, and men the right, more logical side. But is it really that cut and dry? It seems when it comes to affairs of the heart, there’s a battle between what we know and what we feel. So what do you do when you find yourself in a situation that leaps back and forth between the left side and right side?

When it comes to relationships, is it smarter to follow your heart or your head?

When it comes to relationships, how do you know when enough is enough?

Are we all, in fact, just dating the same person over and over again?

In relationships, what are the deal breakers?

Is timing everything?

What really defines a relationship?

In matters of love, do actions really speak louder than words?

Can you ever really forgive, if you can’t really forget?

In a relationship, when does the art of compromise become compromising?

In matters of love, how do you know when it is right?

If we know the house always wins, why gamble?

Do we need distance to get close?

Just how dangerous is an open heart?

Is it time to stop questioning?

Poop and Scoop

sometimes you get a hug that rocks your world.
sometimes it is from a long lost friend.
sometimes it is from family.
sometimes it is from someone you want to spend the rest of your life with.
sometimes it is from a 5 year old little boy with autism

who walks over to you, looks you straight in the eye, and asks you if you are ok

and along with those words, he puts his little hands and arms around you tight and gives you an incredible hug at exactly the right moment you needed one the most, as if he really knew

and then pulls away and asks you how to spell “poop” and “scoop”.

the end.
