AMINAN is about a guy that I witnessed confessing his love for a girl at Dangwa. Aminan in English means; to confess to one another. I was at the flower market taking pictures of the colorful flower sellers and the then I saw these two college students just standing there waiting for a jeepney ride.
Then all of a sudden, I noticed that their body language suddenly changed from simply just standing there to hugging each other, smiling and looking at each other's eyes.
The scene was as sweet at it sounds, the fragrance of all the combined fresh flowers abloom, the setting sun behind them and the smile on their faces revealing their feelings to one another.
It doesn't matter if it's young love, too soon for their age or too sudden for the other to react. Indeed love is a risk worth taking, even more so the heart pounding moment when confessing one's love to another.
Confessing one's love could be planned or it could be blurted out all of a sudden, out of nowhere, as tears fall or hearts be broken. It might be received and given back by the other, only time will tell if it would last.
We've all been there, and to some of us who have confessed one's love by confessing it face to face, or through poetry and love letters, or the private message of a close friend who has secretly admired us from the first day, confessing our feelings to someone is not easy to do.
Even though if the other person doesn't feel the same way, it's still something we need to do to find out if they feel the same.
Whatever the outcome, I found that if you do not tell the person you adore how you feel, you're bound to feel something. Either pain or relief, depending if they do or don't feel the same. You have to have guts, and it comes first when confessing your love.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
I am head over heals in love with this man and I don’t thank him enough for all that he does! Let alone working full time and commuting to Seattle M-F, he’s been working overtime & getting home @ 8 only to go to bed and do it all over again! He rarely complains and we are oh so thankful for him - we spend our days missing the heck out of him and can’t wait for Friday afternoon to roll around, and Sunday evening is dreadful.
It’s easy for life to getcha, to get so wrapped up in kids and house work and never ending laundry.
To do lists & cleaning and trying to get caught up - but one thing I’ve realized time and time again, is the importance of each other. To not forget about each-other or make one another feel special and loved.
That’s where the story starts.. you..... and him (or her). Don’t forget to take time out of your daily routine to remember that, even if it’s just a moment. You NEED that bond, that connection, that love, to keep the wheels rollin and the fire burnin 🔥 - because without that - you can’t be the best version of yourself.
I love you Kramer ❤️ can’t believe we’ve been together almost TEN years, but this will be the best year yet 🔥💗❤️ #younglove #fourkids #marriage #husbandandwife #realmendrinkpink #bestfriend #loveofmylife
Seen so many people post theirs. I wanted to do ours because even though we look a little more youthful 😂 in the first photo we were still so young and just finding out who we were in this crazy thing called life. We are so much more happier, wiser, comfortable in our own skin and more in love than ever now thanks to 2 kids and almost 10 years of marriage. Bring on 10 more ✌️

This is me and Bill. On January 13, 1989, we met. It was a Friday the 13th, and that combined with a case of the hiccups during our first kiss, is how I’ve always remembered the date. I was a senior in high school at Millbrook in Raleigh, North Carolina, and he was a sophomore at N.C.State University. My friends Saralyn and @cfroosh both had college boyfriends who lived in Owen dorm, so I tagged along on a visit to see their boyfriends, and that’s when I met Bill, a civil engineer student. We dated off and on for three years. Bill introduced me to The Dead (we attended shows together), and that one time he grew pot in the closet of his apartment kind of freaked me out, and oh the countless late-night conversations and love letters and angst over the future of...us. And of course life took us in different directions, but who would have guessed that 30 years later we’d still know each other. Bill just recovered from cancer, and I’m busy raising unique children during a difficult time in our country/world, so screw the current trend of the 10-year challenge, how about 30 When we were young and wild and free...
“Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young.” J.K. Rowling

My shorty has a crush/ experiencing her first identifiable attraction to someone.
And I am geeked, like, We are in there! 6. Hormones activated and warming up.
They held hands. Y’all. Two lil babies holding hands!!! Just cause it felt right. I’m cheesing.
She told me! *falls on bended knee in gratitude for a spirit of comfort, trust, and friendship that is present in our relationship* god, it’s my life’s purpose to sustain this.
It’s a “handsome” baby named Lennox, strolling around here bringing a whole new awareness of feelings, emotions, and experiences into my daughters world. Bless him, his heart, and his parents.
WE READY!!!! I’ve accepted that I very soon will be talking to Kenz about sex. I’m walking towards it. Not running from it. Cause uhhhhh shorty asked me... Kenz: “have you seen him (like I’m in class with her 😒)
Me: girl no
Kenz: his body (pauses long enough for me to turn my head around)
Me: is (Desperately reminding myself that I can be more than uncomfortable, I don’t have to let that be the emotion I chose, hold me steady Jesus)
Kenz: *heavy swoon/sigh*
Me: lol you think he’s cute huh
Honestly. I’m geeked. I’m excited to roll alongside her. I’m trying not to put pressure on myself, but the way we navigate this first journey of “love”, will lay cement/pave the road for later ventures. Right now, side by side then I’ll be in the back, till she’s driving alone.
But for noooow.... we got a crush!!! I now see why parents needn’t have media. I now see why my business was floated around the family.
Parents just get excited y’all. ❤️ #raisingkenz #motherdaughtertingz
