30 day blog challenge day five


Day 5 – Define what is important to you in terms of a significant relationship.

Well there are many things that make a relationship significant to me. Number one, is trust.. not really that they can trust in me, but that I can trust in them. It feels so selfish of me to say that, but its very true. I am confident in the person I am and that I can show someone I am trustworthy but its not always the case with others. (When I say these things I am talking about all relationships, not just marital/ sexual ones) Number two, I believe is kindness. If you give someone as much kindness as possible and all you get in return is attitude or spite, I’m going to want to return in the same way. Not that I try to.. it just happens. I am a huge fan of the phrase “treat others the way you want to be treated” and I stand by it. If I am treated with disrespect, I will return disrespect.. or at least no longer expect you to respect me. The third thing I think is important is that this person is willing to work with you through any tough times that may come their way. I am not a huge fan of weak hearted people because I am not one myself. I need strong people in my life because weakness only brings me down.

In a personal relationship, like mine and David’s, it is important that we are able to communicate. Even if something comes up that were frustrated about either with each other or with other people, we are able to talk about it and get past it. Talking and thinking things through TOGETHER is key. If there is only one side to the relationship it is doomed to fail.

My Simple Man


Come sit beside me, my oldest son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this it’ll help you some sunny day

Oh, take your time don’t live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
Go find a woman you’ll find love
And don’t forget son there is someone up above

And be a simple kind of man
Be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won’t you do this for me son if you can?

Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold
All that you need is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you my son is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won’t you do this for me son if you can?

Boy, don’t you worry you’ll find yourself
Follow your heart and nothing else
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you my son is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won’t you do this for me son if you can?

Baby be a simple, be a simple man
Be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man

My adaptation of Simple man by Lynyrd Skynyrd
