She could hug a million people a day, but no one could ever come close to making her feel as warm and safe.
Every time he laughed time would slow down. His nose gently wrinkles as seconds turn to minutes. His eyes would twinkle, glimpses of golden caught light beneath crisp blue. His playful smile would widen. A chuckle would escape. Looking at me, giggling, watching this sight to see. Still in disbelief, that he chose me. Minutes begin to slip back into seconds, as I gasp for air. Those perfect 3 seconds are the reason no one else can compare.
When it comes to fairytales everyone has their own version. Some want the red carpet rolled out, others want a best friend; some just want a hand to hold. So when we all have different versions and ideas as to what a dream worthy relationship is, is it possible for everyone to have a fairytale ending? And if you do get one, how will you know? After all, relationships aren't always rainbows and unicorns, sometimes we hit rough patches. So in those moments can the fairytale be not only getting through those patches but having love at the end? The feeling that you wouldn't want to go through these tough moments with anyone else. Simply choosing the other person over and over again, no matter how you see a "perfect relationship", isn't that the ultimate fairytale we all want? Someone that never stops choosing us?
When it comes to planning out love is it ever a good idea? Or is our want to plan just a subconscious foreshadow of whats to come. Are we simply just trying to cover up the inevitable by talking about what we would like to happen to make ourselves feel better? Because we always know right? When you meet someone within the first date or time together you know. We often times don't like admitting this to ourselves for lack of wanting to start all over again. But what about when we don't feel the need to plan or don't want to for fear of "jinxing it". Are we also trying to hide something? Maybe we don't see this going anywhere? Or maybe, we feel so comfortable due to just knowing that we don't need to plan. Planning when you know about someone would be like a stranger telling you the grass is green. Its obvious. Often times when a not so good relationship ends somebody will always say "I had a feeling they weren't right from the beginning". If this is true why do we sing ourselves a song we know is impossible to finish? Maybe we need to learn something? Maybe the thing we need to learn most is when we actually know vs. when we act like we know.
When it comes to dating do we always have to make it evident we are a "thing" with someone in order for anything to come out of it? Or can we just go by the feeling we get? Why is there such a need to lay everything out and have both people say they are all in? Is it due to fear? Therefore when someone doesn't lay it all out making it evident they want to be with you are they fearless? Maybe more secure? Or is that old saying "he's just not that into you" the truth behind it all?
Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go
