It’s both funny and achingly sad how one decision, action, or reaction can dictate the direction your life gets lost in. They are the moments that will haunt you. They are the haunts that will teach you. They are the teachers who will either push you to grow or will validate you as you are. And when I say funny, I mean you’ll find them funny 50 years from now. Until then… know who you have. I’m talking- recognize, inhale, and let him permeate your heart. Otherwise, if you don’t, you won’t know what it feels like when he’s not beside you to recognize, inhale, nor permeate your anything. You could be at his sister’s wedding today. Or before him, you could have already been married and living on Martha’s Vineyard. You talked about marriage when you were mere friends. And it felt so real. Like he really was your tailor-made soul mate. But if he really was, then no decision, action, or reaction should steer you to diverging paths.
Right? It’s not a definitive “right”, but rather one that begs for several question marks.
However you get to the destination- however you get to the place where you’re sitting on a porch swing with the love of your life 50 years from now laughing about all of the missteps with those you passed to get to the one beside you- it doesn’t really matter. It brought you to the one who loves you at the core and knows that one decision, action, or reaction doesn’t define who you are nor does it lessen the love that you have and can offer. And that recognition is the core for sustainability.
*Disclaimer- When I say “decision, action, or reaction”, I’m not referring to the shattering, harmful, or immoral, but rather the miniscule, irrelevant, and insignificant wrinkles in relationships. This was about the trivial clouds that temporarily hover over an otherwise beautiful day. Some allow their heads to get lost up in those clouds. I’m just not one of them.
