“I write because you exist.” by Michael Faudet to Lang Leav. Sure, this couple’s whereabouts somewhere in the cabins of New Zealand remains as a mystery but we can still plaster #relationshipgoals on them and feel instant kilig whenever we read their pieces. This couple shows their public display of affection through relatable prose, poems, and letters. They make love through words that tug your heartstrings, just right there (yeah, right there) where it hurts the most. They can make the dead butterflies in your stomach come back to life and thaw your frigid heart.
Moving on to the next couple, who raised imaginative and inquisitive children, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith. Seems like Jaden and Willow’s open-mindedness extended far more than their eighteen and fourteen years of existence here in our world. Such interesting young minds they have and are willing to open the eyes of our generation. They make music that seep through your marrows, amazing photography skills and visual arts that can alter your perspective and most importantly, statements that motivate you to be this great, unique individual who’s not afraid of people’s judgement. Props to Will and Jada’s amazing parenting skills and for their lovely insights. Here’s to Jada and Will for raising these kids with wonderful minds.
Now, as I type more words (that are out of context) and know that this shall come to an end, I would like to ask you a question (and you’re probably going to hate me after, I’m so sorry). Do you believe in forever? For me, forever isn’t a time duration, it’s something that you do in order to last together forever.
