You know that feeling you get in your tummy, the butterflies. You know the feeling you get in your heart, the fast pitter-patter. You know the feeling you get in your mind, the awe.
I came to life when you kissed me.
I’m a firm believer in everything happens for a reason. That we should put a little more stock in fate. When someone comes into my life out of the blue, you damn well better know that I am going through all of the reasons why. You came into my life for a reason and I came into yours for another. It won’t always be clear but I know that I will always be thankful for allowing myself to go with the flow.
In this life, I hope we can all stop second guessing our actions or thoughts. Stop deleting the words that you want to say and just say them. Yes, they are going to be a little imperfect, sloppy but they will be honest. They will be the feelings that have been waiting to be exposed. I hope that we can stop hesitating when someone we care for grabs us for a hug and squeezes a little tighter. We need to allow ourselves to be raw and vulnerable with them.
The best me has her arms wrapped around you.
I want to believe that there will be times when we can all just listen a little closer to our own hearts and stop locking it away. Real feelings and actions are meant to be felt with all we have to give, it makes them become something greater than we could ever expect. I hope that one day we can take action and just do it. The only way you are ever going to get further in this life is if you take it yourself. You have to make things happen, you have let yourself free.
I hope that we can carelessly walk forward, move through life a little less calculated. That we can just put one foot in front of the next without knowing what is going to happen next. If the bad things happen, they happen. We learn, take our pride back, and move on. Time moves quickly and it won’t wait for us to catch up.
There are too many things in life that are temporary – even our lives. There is no such thing as forever but there is beauty in it. There is beauty in new life, in creating life, falling in love, laughter. Finding a love that stands the test of time. Having it challenge everything and having it push us, proving that real emotion doesn’t have an expiration date like the milk in the fridge.
You make this a better place to be.
I want to stop thinking about all the ways it could go wrong or feelings not being reciprocated or having my heart broken. I want to stop counting the losses and focus on the wins. I want to act on my feelings. I want to grab life by the hand and let it guide me. I want you to take me in your arms, look into my eyes, and stop talking. I want to get lost in you.
I hope we can push away the past and remember to live in the now. I hope we can come to quit over-thinking, wondering, doubting.
I hope we can kiss, and kiss with such a reckless abandon that it is like pulling a magnet apart when we take a breath. Having all of our feelings pushed together by our lips. Our hands pulling us closer, forgetting all time and space. Forgetting the uncertainty of it all. Forgetting our fears. I hope we can kiss without hesitation and let love bind us. I hope we can kiss and find something real.
I hope we talk less and kiss more.
Life is temporary, darling, this will save us.
