Good evening! Hopefully yall missed me, but had wonderful days nonetheless. I had a very busy but blessed day. There are so many things I want to talk about. I guess we have nothing but time and cyber space so I'll take my time.

So the title of this blog is The GAME of LOVE because I am in love with the sitcom. For those of you who know what I'm talking about you may be in the same boat as me is so GOOD!! It use to air on the CW network but was cancelled. I am pleased to announce that it has since been picked up by BET and I'm so glad they did!

The show is filled with relationship drama, family spats, betrayal, heartbreak, comedy, and some real-life know, all the qualities of an addictive show. And that's exactly what I am!!

Yesterday, I was catching up on some episodes that I missed from some of the seasons. It was the show where Melanie (Tia) finds out that Derwin (Pooch) did more than just kiss his friend Drew (a Melanie over hears Dionne (Derwin's old PR person) confronting him about having sex with Drew. CRAZY RIGHT?! Yeah, so anyway...Melanie ends up slapping him and having a big argument in front of everyone.

Lots of stuff happens..(I'm not one to spoil shows if you ever want to watch LoL)...but long story short. Melanie and Derwin get into it and he violently begs her to stay. She declines...of course! LoL ...then the tear jerker scene that inspired this blog comes on. Derwin is devastated (as he should be) and falls asleep on the couch after Melanie leaves. The scene begins to play John Mayer's "Dreaming with a Broken Heart" BEAUTIFUL SONG!!! As the song plays, Derwin is dreaming of Melanie being there, only to awaken and find that he was only dreaming. He begins to cry...and SO DO I!! haha...

The song was PERFECT for this scene. I immediatey went and found the song because I fell in love with it. I found the lyrics as well and it really touched me. I have dreamed with a broken heart before and it truly is a painful thing...I'm what one could call, a "hopeless romantic." I want someone to fight for me (emotionally, the physical stuff is for kids). I want someone to love me with no holds barge, someone who isn't afraid to tell me how they're feeling about me and what they want.

I may be young but I know real love when it hits me, and it would be great to have someone love you with the same tenacity and zeal that you have for them. Being the only one in love can really take its toll on a person. I know first hand... all too well. Sometimes we want someone so bad to just be what we expect them to be; you know, the way we envision them in our heads? The perfect life you build in your brain with that special someone. But what happens when you're the only one with that vision? What happens when you have to face the reality that what you planned is ruined or out of reach? What happens when you are forced to let go of the one person you feel closest too and love so dearly?

How do you handle that? Is there a guide? Is time truly the healer of all heart/emotional wounds? And if so, how much time does one need to stop the broken hearted dreams? I like to think that we all want requited love, but the sad reality is: not everyone knows HOW to love. Love is a verb, meaning it requires ACTION. Without action, it's just an empty four letter word. I turned to the bible to help explain. 1Corinthians 13: 1-13:
1. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
2. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
3. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
4. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
9. For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
10. But when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
11. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
12. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Enough said...If we all loved in this way life would be just a little bit easier, to say the least. I can't say that I am perfect with showing love but I have God as my example and He's the one I practice loving daily so when the time comes I'll know how to recognize true love and be able to love my husband correctly; ending all my broken hearted dreams.

If you love someone, don't be afraid to SHOW it. Don't wait till it's too late. Dare to love and be loved. I've posted the song so you all can hear it. It's simply beautiful. I hope I've inspired, encouraged, or gave someone something to think about today. Don't hesitate to follow my blog! I'd love to hear feedback from those of you who are reading...Enjoy the song and have a wonderful night all...I'm off to dream. Goodnight!!
