This is another example of positive thinking, so well written!... He should write more often and post as I am sure lots enjoy what he write, by giving a good example of how we should live our lives, take a look at ourselves and see what we can do to change it, or do we want to change it? Change it for the better? I think we all would live a happier life if we follow Jazen example of positive thinking. More I read about positive thinking, the less fear I have, it doesn't totally go away, but it ease the way you feel about yourself.

A diary, I suppose, or a journal where I'd jot down my personal thoughts when the mood struck. For those that may have experienced what we want to call true love, and I believe it's an individual experience, maybe you can relate in some fashion or share your own personal thoughts if so desired.
You see, true love is very different. Different than any other emotion one can experience. Far too often, and unfortunately for one's entire lifetime, it may remain elusive. For one not to have experienced true love in this life is nothing short of a tragedy. It seems certain as human beings that giving and receiving love is the very essence of our existence. It lays the foundation for everything we do in life and it becomes crystal clear that this will be something that you will cherish for eternity.
I have come to realize that this type of love lives with you forever. The hole left in your heart eventually becomes the perfect place to store all of the beautiful memories that you shared. The hole fills, so to speak, with every special second from your lives, leaving no room for pain or sorrow or bitterness or anger. And most importantly, as time washes away the sudden changes of loss and your new life slowly melts into normal, there simply is no room for regret.
All this being said, the writing in my own personal journal looks and feels very different to what it did five years ago. I consider myself lucky for the experience and am in a wonderful place in my life right now.
A small snippet from my journal dated approximately 2 years ago:
..i try to grasp the memory of the way she made me feel but I can't. Not completely. At times, I will catch her scent in a warm summer wind or feel her warmth, suddenly and very brief, on a cold winter day. I'll catch her gaze in a stranger or hear her whisper over my shoulder - just for a split second - and suddenly she is gone..
