Finding your constant.

Something is wrong when your world belongs to someone else before it belongs to you. Hawkes Bay has had it's fair share of suicides over the last few years and they've all been youth who have had relationship woes.

You're going to fall in love a lot in your life and in those moments its going to feel like there is nothing else in the world that will undo those impressions. It will feel like the one you are with is your one in a million ... and you will feel that way about the next 3 or 4 before you actually find the compatiable one.

I've told my nieces before .. you grow in love, you don't fall. Falling is a negative and it's complete and without understanding. Growing is gradual and offers room for progression and learning. Wouldn't you much rather steadily work at something rather than throw yourself at it's feet, crossing your fingers? This only leads to a disdain for oneself.

Love is a journey undertaken by those ready and willing to do the work necessary to manoeuvre through the storms. Love is not an easy way out when the venture gets rough.

Love my growing nieces and nephews a little more today.


Me said…
love is like sailing a boat to somewhere beautiful not jumping off a cliff.

scenario one: its tough, tricky, takes some getting usd to, but fun, and challengin and you learn and grow, and you get where you were going with more than what you had.

scenario two: you get a rush adn hit rock bottom.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
