He was everything I needed in that moment.
He shook me.
He woke up my heart, my mind, and my body. He helped me open my heart again to love. He helped me open my mind to accepting all the things in this world that I have no control over—which is everything.
But most importantly, he helped me realize that I am all I have, so never compromise myself for anyone or anything.
I thank you, all of you, for breaking a piece of me so I can build it back. For allowing yourself to love me, if only for that moment. For allowing me to love you, for that moment.
For the unbeknown guidance to the next journey in my life. Thank you for showing me myself in that microscopic moment in time.
And sometimes we find a piece of ourselves in someone they just met. We are drawn to them with no explanation why, like moths to a flame if I were to cliche this instance. They feel familiar, like home and you suddenly don’t want to leave.
Hours fly by, for time is of no essence here, and it’s that little tap to your knee or a touch of their hand on yours that sends your mind and blood swirling in crazy circles.
There is so much chemistry….
Now we wait
I hate this
Some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies
Just below the surface we are all raw and exposed
Even in laughter the heart may ache, and the end of joy may be grief. The backslider in heart will be filled with the fruit of his ways, and a good man will be filled with the fruit of his ways.
It’s hard to find people who will love you no matter what, but when you do, make sure to appreciate them because everyone has a limit of how much they can handle. Limits are based not only on the person but how much they are willing to give of themselves and try.
Blessings aplenty, but be sure to count yours
