Life happens, it continues without hesitation. You can make all the plans in the world, but life doesn’t have to follow your lead. It has taken me years to understand what I am looking for in life and partnership, but I can answer that now. I want my last “first date.” I want a partner that I trust and crave. I want an equal partnership where successes are shared and challenges are overcome together. Someone who believes that “family is family” whether it’s the one you started out with or the one you create together.
If this love that I am searching for is different than my perceived “life plan,” than it will be even better than imagined because it will be what it’s supposed to be. Sometimes it takes a hundred tries to win. And sometimes you have to let go of all your plans to learn that LIFE and LOVE happens while we are busy living. I have to believe that the best way to appreciate something is to go without having it for a while. Life is tricky, but it can take you by the hand and lead you to the most amazing places (and people) if you trust in it.
