Sleepless in Seattle…

“What if someone you never met, someone you never saw,someone you never knew was the only someone for you?”

Sleepless In Seattle, Serendipity, and movies alike always have a theme of fate, destiny bringing one another together, and ‘if it’s meant to be then, it will be’ clichés, but are these actually true? See no one knows what life will bring, and when we plan, GOD tends to laugh. So on one side you have people thinking and planning for their tomorrows, for their future, instinctively knowing that their situation will be what they want it to be, only to be let down, many of times. Then we have the people more along the lines of ‘let it flow’, ‘don’t head into a relationship with notions of marriage and long-term commitments’. I’ve learned to accept the latter, maybe because of life experiences, maybe not.

People say stop looking for love, or just wait, it’ll come to you, but what do you do with love when you’ve found it or it’s found you??? Do we embrace it? Do we run from it? Of course we should embrace it! Right?! You’ll be surprised to learn how many actually run from something that could be eternal, two weeks, three years, who knows, in fear that they will be hurt later on. And what do we do when love is lost? When the one you love walks away or you walk away, or you walk away from each other?? Some fight and fight hard in hopes that things will get better, and in some cases they do, others they don’t. And some do just walk away and never look back, they look towards their future and maybe one day they’ll end up making two right turns putting them right back with that person [If, of course, the other person is still there or they have made two left turns themselves]. So does fate really exist? Do we create our own destinies or do we rely on fate to do the work? How about an equal balance of the two, if it is something or someone you truly find significant in your life, do the work it requires to keep that person around, and if you have done all you could have done without taking away from yourself, then that is all you can do. At some point we have to learn to let things go and let it be, for our own sanity. If it is meant to be, then it shall be…we have to let it go..and if it comes back then thats how we know.that its ours and it will be greater this time around then last, because both parties have grown, and realized what is truly needed out of one another. Love at second sight tends to be better than the first go ’round.

Life is all about the choices we make, so never have any regrets and do all you can to own something you feel you deserve. Take a deep breath and exhale…
