Konichiwa fellow Word Up Ninja lovers! I’m Lady Ninja (like Lady Gaga, but less meat dresses and more pink nunchuks). I am the newest member of the Word Up Ninja team!
Okay let’s get real....you come to this site to read posts that make you say, “Yeah! That’s exactly what I think!” or “Whaaaat the heck is the Love Ninja on about!?!” but the main point is you come to hear opinions and compare them to your opinions!
The great news is (drum roll please...) now you have another Ninja’s perspective to read! (cue bells, whistles and a quick Ninja booty shake)
So to start it off I’ll share with you a little quote that I live by:
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable” –Bruce Lee
What does this mean? Well I see it as a video of what love is! We often seek the flame of love—hot, pretty and fierce—but we forget that it is short lived and superficial! It is the coals that represent a true quality relationship (whether that’s romantic or just friendship!)
Here’s my question to you:
DO YOU PREFER A “FLICKERING FLAME” TO “UNQUENCHABLE COALS”?
When you meet someone do you look only for a fire and when it passes also let the opportunity for a strong relationship pass as well? Or do you recognize that the fire is what draws you in and the deep-burning coals are truly the gift you long for!!
Heavy stuff for a first intro post hey?!! Haha!
