Once upon a time, happier ever after. The stories we tell are the stuff of dreams. Fairy tales don't come true. Reality is much stormier. Much murkier. Much scarier. Reality it’s so much more interesting than living happily ever after.
Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely because almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope and faith that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true.
Maybe I do believe it. All this meant to be stuff. Why not believe it? Really, who doesn’t want more romance in their life? Maybe it’s just up to us to make it happen, to show up and be that for each other. At least that way we’ll find out for sure if you’re meant to be or not.
Carpe diem, how annoying is carpe diem? How are you supposed to plan a life, a career, a family, if you’re always carpe-ing the diem? If we all ceased every moment of every day, there wouldn’t be doctors who would sit through med school. We’d all be too busy living in the now. Whatever that means.
