Unrequited Love may pave your way to Greatness – The Love-story of Pope Francis.

I quote from Shafali’s Caricatures and Cartoons

Pope Francis’s unrequited Love

Amalia Damonte who still lives in the same house where she grew up (at 555 Membranilla Street in the Flores district of Buenos Aires (the capital of Argentina,)) was proposed to by a young boy called Jorge Bergoglio. He was 12 and she was 13…and she is the reason why Jorge Bergoglio is Pope Francis now. Had she not turned down his proposal, he wouldn’t have embraced priesthood – for his letter told her in no uncertain terms – that if she didn’t agree to become his wife, he’d become a priest. He was quite serious about the matter as she’s got it in black and white…or whatever was the color of the ink that Jorge favored when he was young.

So…you see now. There’s a woman behind every successful man…even the Pope :)

Now, he is the leader of 1.2 Billion Catholics world-wide.

This love-story had an end different from what lovers hope for, yet it has a great end. Sometimes, your love isn’t returned for a reason. Either fate has other, higher-order plans for you, or the object-of-your-affection knows something that you don’t…something that you are better off not knowing. Every once in a while, your love may not be returned, because returning your love could do more harm than good to you – and so that love for you is forever kept under lock and key. When this happens to you, don’t take it as an affront to your dignity, don’t assume that your love was not returned because there was a fault with you – it could be that your love-interest realizes that he or she won’t measure up to you – or perhaps that you were meant for greater things 🙂

On the other hand,

it’s a good idea to do your best before you decide to call it quits. For instance, you must send all the love letters that you can and try to best to beat your greedy, unethical rival in the game of love. Girls, are you game?

True Love Story 1 – Patrick creates NYGirlofMyDreams and Finds Camille :)

NYGirlofMyDreams

(A True Love-Story)

You may have heard or read about Patrick’s love-story, but I hadn’t.  I chanced upon this link  on the Reader’s Digest site, and I was smitten. This story is about a young man who thought of a novel way of finding the girl of his dreams. 

Here’s this short and sweet love-story, in my words – presenting the images that formed in my mind as I went through the above link.

Patrick threw away the blanket, leaped out of the bed. He had an idea.

He rushed to his table and pulled out his sketchbook from under the huge untidy pile of papers and books. Some of the books caught the momentum and flew off the desk, as did a few papers, and his box of color-pencils. He’d pick them up later. Right now, he had to do something that was a lot more important. Sketch her. He pulled his chair, caught a pencil that was about to roll off the table, and opened the sketchbook…and then it hit him. His scanner wasn’t working. So what? He was a web-designer and he had Photoshop – the God of all image-editing applications!

So, he began drawing. It was a basic drawing, but it had all the information. The yellow flower in her partly braided hair, the light-blue shorts over the dark-blue slacks, and the notebook too. The notebook that she was scribbling something in. What was she scribbling? This wasn’t the time to ask questions – perhaps there would be a time…perhaps he’d find her.

He had lost his heart to her when he had seen her at the Union Square subway station in New York City. He and she had gotten on the same train – but then she disappeared in the crowd that got into the train at the Bowling Green station. He couldn’t follow her. That would be stalking and Patrick wouldn’t do something as crass as that. He didn’t know then that her name was Camille and that she was an Australian. But he had carried home a picture of this pretty girl with a flower in her hair, and it was this picture that will help him find her.

Up came a new website called nygirlofmydreams.com, and along came a spate of information and a flood of women infatuated with this romantic man. Luckily for him and perhaps for her too, Camille’s friend came to know about this website, and he got in touch with Patrick.

So Patrick found Camille. There first meeting happened on Good Morning America…(weird?)… and this is how they look together.

This is how we tell ourselves that true loves shows us the way…or why would Patrick think of putting up a website, why would the website go viral, and why would it be seen by Camille’s friends?

Do you think not?

I think you don’t 🙂

Important Note. This story is based on real-events (refer to the links). However, the story is the author’s visualization and narration. If you like this story, pass it around to people in love. Let them know that when love waves its magic wand, you’ll discover ways to find the prince or the princess of your dreams.

The Greatest Love-stories told with added sugar and spice…coming soon to this blog :)

Folks,

February is about to welcome March to this blog. March brings spring along. In my humble opinion, March and April are the months when love really and truly blooms. Actually, there’s no season or time for love, it’s just that when nature herself is at her prettiest best, you feel more like celebrating love.

In these months, I’ll bring you the best love-stories of the world. I won’t copy-and-paste them from anywhere, because I hate cheating whether in love or in writing. So I’ll write them for you – and if there’s time, I’ll even sketch those two loving souls for you.

If you want these stories to land in your inbox, just click the subscribe button in the right sidebar.

That’s all for now 🙂

I’ll be back with the first story in a couple of days.

Now go, give a kiss to your love. Remember, love thrives when expressed 🙂

– Nifty.

Yes,

Love Thrives when Expressed.
