I am in love….there, I said it!
I believed that love existed and I believed it could be. But, I was pretty skeptical about it ever happening to me.
Then, I met her…this amazing women whom for the long time was a friend. I’m not mentioning her name here right now because, frankly, I didn’t ask permission to do so.
The more I got to know her, the more I wanted to know. Curiosity turned into something else…appreciation…affection…love. And this time, I didn’t fight it. Every other thought about her began to turn into every single thought.
Interesting thing about love…real, genuine love. It makes you want to be a better person. You’ll want to step up your A-game. You’ll want to think of awesome ways to make that person you truly care about feel special. You even want to improve and grow and learn a little better. And everything in your life gradually stops being all about “me,” but turns into “we.”
You know the feeling, right? Your heart races, you get lightheaded and you can barely speak because it’s like the wind got knocked out of you and, add to it, silence seems to say so much more than your own words.
The feeling is AMAZING. It’s like, as Charlie Brown said in “The Peanuts Movie,” “all of life’s possibilities become so clear.”
Part of me, as I write this, wants to say, “you should try falling in love sometime,” but that would be like asking you to experience something that is actually a gift…a gift that I didn’t think I was truly ready or capable of handling…until now.
