My nephew, who's 11, asked me a question the other day about someone I once knew well.
Hold up...wait a minute! Where did that question come from?!? Total left field!! I bit my lip, smiled, and answered his questions and told him that she was doing great things and that my heart was happy for her. It led me to think about this quote.
I believe this quote to be true, and I can attest to that. I met someone amazing a few years back, and it didn't take long for my heart to know that She was it. She was stunning, intelligent, funny. She exuded confidence. She honestly inspired me to be better than who i was. But i messed up by not realizing that inspiration sooner; by letting life and fear get in the way. I let her slip through my fingers, and she left. I didn't trust what my heart already knew.
That doesn't keep me from hoping. Although I miss her, I am happy that she is happy where she is now. She is doing amazing things.
I can only say this, that if you find or have someone that Special, don't allow life or fear or anything or anyone else to get in the way. Choose Love. Let go and Trust it. Things may be difficult but they will work out if you put in the work. That Love is worth the time, the effort, the patience, the support of each other to be better, and being present. That kind of special doesn't come around very often so take care of it. Life is meant to be shared with those special to you.
I've made a lot of mistakes, and it's taken me a while to get to where I am with myself now. And I'm still growing. I may be a late bloomer, but I always show up. Better late than never!
Looking forward to where I'll be headed next in this life, I'll keep my head up and have a little faith. I still have a lot of things to see in this world. Time to start riding the waves.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Holiday 2018.
