Sentimental? Oh Yes! – Daily Prompt!

The Daily Prompt –  Sentimental.  Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. 

Sentimental? Oh Yes!

People are wired differently and they see life differently.  I can’t say I am not a sentimental person. Yes, I am very emotional and that affects the way I reason and the way I see things sometimes.

I am a very conscious human being and pay attention to the slightest detail. I exude positive energy and notice when you are sad and hurting and I’m quick to offer my shoulders for you to cry on. But most importantly, I’d bring you out of that low moment. My presence is ever infectious,  a contagious spirit I like to call it.

I like to turn ordinary moments into beautiful moments, just so to etch the sweetness of life into the memory. These days, I am attaching so much sentiments to the season and loving the fleeting beauty of its elegance.

What about you? Are you sentimental? Do you allow sentiments to rule your world?

Well, at some point I think we all do. But perhaps you are not one of us and that’s pretty much okay.

Sentimentally attached:

When emotions and sentiments play a major role than reality.

When you remember precious moments with old flames and refuse to do away with such insane thoughts after they have moved on.

When you keep telling everyone that your mother’s food taste better and that everyone else is a bad cook, huh!

When as a mother you still see him as the little boy of yesterday even after he was married.

When all you do is surround yourself with old photos when he/she left you broken hearted.

When you refuse to change your phone because it was a birthday present from a loved one.

When instead of looking ahead, you kept returning to the past.

You  reflect about the dead and get too attached to their possessions.

When you refuse to jettison old ideologies. And abhor change because you are still trapped in your grand parents theory.

When you indulge the child too much and refuse to be realistic.

When you read this and say to yourself – she must be really sentimental!

Really! Was I sentimental? Yes I was, indeed.

Peace and Love!

  1. I am pretty sentimental. I like that you seem to know yourself and your strength and are not afraid to share it. I can tell you are a positive person. Good for you! God bless you.

  2. Being sentimental is my biggest undoing….I’m attached to everything. My heart grabs hold of random stuff and just won’t let go. I sit in the same seat at church every Sunday…I can’t stop wearing my beat up jersey because I bought it with my first paycheck. I cry when i see people eating sugar buns because that’s so darn cute…lol. Or maybe I’m just weird…lol

    1. LOL. No, Dear Ntomby, you are not weird. That is being yourself and attaching emotions to everything. Being sentimental is normal and a way of life. Being overly sentimental becomes a problem I’d say. 🙂

  3. Simple this is not, as I was disturbed three times while reading this.
    Since it created a dimple on my heart, I didn’t want to get it loose.
    I read it completely in a way so adamantly.
    Was I again sentimental about it, in a way, I was isn’t?
    Now, I ask the Heart to remember again, that its job is to pump blood, that’s it.
    OK! Heart!! My Dear!!!
    SimpleDimple this is great!!!!!

  4. What I have found a compelling perspective of the Maya is their belief that our feelings are our true sixth sense. It is a traditional way of offering prayers as an expression of feelings… a language of the heart. YAY for sentimental and the ways we feel love!
