In Another Life

Sometimes its hard to understand why things happen the way they do. They just don’t make sense. Like how can you go through your whole life waiting for and dreaming about a certain moment, then the moment comes and it’s perfect…just the way you dreamed it. Accept it’s not…it came with a catch.

A catch?? Really??

It’s seriously annoying.

The old me would be really discouraged right about now, would probably even feel a little sorry for myself. But the new me realizes that everything that comes into my life, good or bad has been brought to me intentionally for a purpose. Knowing that, takes the sting out of nearly perfect moments. Knowing that, strengthens my belief that the PERFECT moment is yet to come.

I’m so grateful that I can see these experiences as teaching moments. Doesn’t mean that it doesn’t TOTALLY SUCK ASS, because it really does. It’s kinda heartbreakingly sad, really.  The selfish me wants this moment to work out in my favor, wants this experience. But sometimes timing is everything, and that’s just life. I know enough to realize that I cant make anything perfect. I can put my desire out there and let what’s right for me, come to me.

But the good news is, now I know… now I know I drew it to me once, I can do it again. It will be worth the wait, I have complete faith.

Now I know, that feeling is possible. That connection is possible. What the movies depict can happen in real life, I’ll wait patiently for it to happen again. Lightening can strike twice I don’t care what the
skeptics say.



In another life
I would be your girl
We’d keep all our promises 
Be us against the world
In another life
I would make you stay
So I don’t have to say
You were the one that got away.

    Great post, and right in time. You say: “everything that comes into my life, good or bad has been brought to me intentionally for a purpose”, and that’s so true! Recently I’ve realized that when shit starts happening to you, you shouldn’t regard it as a personal challenge or a punishment for something. It happens to make you realize something important and become stronger.
