I think it is equally weird and beautiful. How we, as human beings, learn to love. And yes, I just finished watching a very touching romantic movie, but that's just me. It never, ever, ceases to amaze me. Think about it, if only for a moment. At some point in your life, somebody crosses your path. As unexpected and amazing and scary as it is, you let go. It's not giving up, it's giving in. Giving in to every heartbeat, every breath, every smile. It's a leap of faith, in a way. But more than any other person, you have to trust yourself. That this time will be good, that you'll be better.
In love, as in life, what goes around comes around. I don't really believe in karma. I always say so, as sort of a joke. But in the end, I only believe that the love you put into the universe comes around at some point. In rolling waves, you just have to be there when the tide hits. It could be any moment, there's no timetable. I think it's very bad for people to say "Oh, you know, now it's not the time". It's always the time. Honestly, time is always about here and now, no yesterday and no tomorrow. So if you want to miss your chance of whatever this is, you're free to do so. But I will judge you for this. My friends know this about me. I'm all about yes and maybe, I don't take no (and thank you) very well.
There's this quote I love, it basically says love cannot be mediocre. Hell to the yes to that! There are too many mediocre things in life, and I sure don't want it to be one of them. I've become quite the romantic, haven't I? I think we're a breed very close to extinction. Romantic and wild. I'll get that engraved on my headstone one day. "She lived happy, loved wildly, learned daily". That's how I want people to remember me. Actually, it might be soon to think about this, but we never know.
As silly as this sounds, I wasn't planning on one of these "lectures" people try and give on new year's day. It just came right out of me. Don't take this as something written for you, though. It was, and it is, for me. To remember, daily, after 2013 hit, that there's always room for happiness, even in the darkest of times. If only one remembers to turn on the light.
Even if your hands are shaking, and your faith is broken. Even if the eyes are closing, do it with a heart wide open. (good old John Mayer, always knows best)
