You know the story, as it’s been written about in a lifetime of stories for centuries and it always starts with….Boy meets girl.
Boy makes girl smile, he makes her laugh and tells her she is pretty, smart, engaging and then, there is the chemistry. I haven’t even gotten to the similarities yet…finishing each other’s thoughts and sentences. Ahh…the beginning of a new relationship is blooming.
I’ve met a man who makes my heart spin cartwheels, he makes me smile so often that my face hurts, and his voice calms me when I hear it. At times, it’s as if we are the very mirror image of one another in many ways.
How is life so cruel? You meet the perfect person for you, seems to be the one, you know the one person that compliments you, the one that you didn’t even know that you were looking for and yet, you don’t have timing on your side. There are clues that something is amiss, but you call it an off moment. Then, you settle into the slow responses, or no responses, then the long silences, and eventually, you say your “goodbyes” and all that you remember is the word “friends” being mentioned. Then, you pick yourself up, put on your mask and step back into the world alone. Again.
Isn’t life funny? This is simply the universe whispering to me that, “Timing is Everything.”
I reply, “Timing is a Bitch!l”
