I want to tell you about Love.
It is unlike everything you have ever believed it to be. It is unlike the movies that portray it, the books that wandered within it & the stories reminisced of it by those you trust. It is unlike all of those venues.
I understand that is a bold statement but I promise you, I Promise You, it is the truest statement I have ever known.
Love is not magical. It is not a Fairy Tale. It is Better than that.
Love does not happen in an instant. There is no First Sight. Love is like the sediment that builds up the banks of a small creek, a wide river or the oceans themselves. It takes far longer than the time you have to offer, but it works far quicker when you're not paying attention.
Love is not having to say a word and knowing that being silent is OK. Love is a small smile when everyone else is showing their teeth. Love is not hope, it's hoping. Love is shitting with the bathroom door ajar... and laughing about the sounds. Hey, that's just the truth.
Love Happens... but it does not, has never & will never just Happen.
My hope for you is that one day you can find someone who hates your flaws and yet adores the fact that you have them. The Loving is easy... the Living with it is the hard part.
Your eyes will always tell the truths your mouth hasn't learned to convey.
Find your mirror when you're ready. Love the reflection.
And if they make funny faces at you.. You Win.
