I Need Your Love

I need your love
I need your time
When everything’s wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

This is the kind of love I need πŸ™‚

What are your needs in life? We all need the basics – food, shelter, etc…but what else do you need to feel alive? What things are required for you to feel that you are living a fulfilled life? I’ve been thinking about this lately – probably because I’m busier than a one-legged man in an arse-kicking contest these days, and I no longer have the time to do the things I want…I can barely find enough hours in the day to take care of the necessities. But what are those necessities? For me, I think they are this: time with the Wee One – I never have enough of that. That sweet child is my raison d’Γͺtre, and without large doses of her, I feel empty and just not right. I also need to be gainfully employed and feel like I am making a difference. I’ve never really had a job-job, the kind where you go, punch the clock in, do something, and then leave – I’ve always worked in schools, brought work home with me, and been part of something bigger. I don’t know that I would – or could – be happy with a job-job…it’s too important for me personally to feel a sense of fulfillment. For example, in my new job (which I LOOOOOOVE with every fiber of my being, btw!), I find that even the smallest, most simple of tasks fill me full of joy – every day that I get to go to work makes me feel like I have a purpose, and I feel like I belong. That is just the absolute best feeling EVER! πŸ™‚ I’ve got a steep learning curve ahead of me, I am aware, but….I’m really excited, and I still can’t believe my incredible good fortune. Yaa! πŸ™‚


I also need time with my friends – we don’t have to do much, just being in their company, whether in person or on the phone is enough. 95% of the time I would be hard-pressed to tell you what we talk about when we’re together…but it’s soothing – and essential – for my spirit. Another need of mine is peace and quiet when I’m on the potty – I find it beyond rude when someone rushes me there, and frankly the solitary alone time is awesome. πŸ˜‰ Speaking of that, I need time to myself – which I’ve been struggling to find lately. It has taken me a lot of years to get to the point where I am now – I love my company, and I really enjoy spending time withΒ me.Β I used to go snaky when I had too much time on my own – but now I relish it. I can do everything, or nothing…and it’s fantastic. I like the time to just sit on my arse on the couch, watch crap television, smell the cinnamon candles that I always have burning, and just doΒ nothing. I think that is blissful and essential to my well-being – it’s definitely a need, and not a want. πŸ™‚ I need to find more time for this.

I also need to have love and attention – I don’t like to feel ignored, unappreciated, or unwanted. I believe that feeling valued and cherished by those around me is imperative to my mental health. Sadly when those things disappear, I pretty much shut down…and that’s just not a good thing. I also need to have people around me that I can care about – my heart is huge, and there’s an awful lot of love there to give…the trick is finding people worthy of giving it to! πŸ˜‰

Christmas drinks from Starbucks are always worthy of my love πŸ™‚

There are soo many other things I would like to have in this world – a new car, more money, freedom to travel, a skinny arse, lots of shoes, a new wardrobe…but these aren’t things I need, and I will survive without them. However, those needs of mine that I listed up there are pretty important – I shudder to think what a mess I’d be without them. 😦

How about you, friends? What do you need in your life? What things are essential to your happiness? I know one more thing I should add to my list – YOU. I need you. πŸ™‚ Love you, friends! πŸ™‚
