One Hundred and Seventeen
April 26, 2012 § Leave a comment
Every now and then, or maybe just once or twice during your existence, someone will come along and make your life unexpectedly and outstandingly great. You fall head over heels in love, up is down, black is white, and the things you thought you knew for certain are now questionable; you discover an exception to the rule. However, in the case that none of this happens to you (or maybe it happened and then ended leaving you on an unpredictable hiatus) know that there is little that will be capable of distracting you.
Love is a powerful thing. It has the ability to cause blindness, butterflies, and an aching heart. When you long for the affection of another, when you pine for a companion, no amount of baking, shoe shopping, eating or drinking will fill the void. Standing in a cloud of dust kicked up by the heels of all of your friends rushing off to frolic in their new love, you find yourself debating your next move. And it is in these odd moments in life, when you know something wonderful exists just beyond your reach that anticipation mounts to glorious excitement. However, in the case that the odd moment fails to produce any sort of hopeful eagerness know that there is absolutely nothing capable of distracting you.
Loneliness is a powerful thing. It has the ability to cause sleeplessness, weight gain, and poor drinking habits. But in the case that you find yourself standing in that cloud of dust with mere inches of hope left, just wait. Because before you know it you will be head over heels, up will be down, black will be white, and you will be questioning all that you thought you knew. Because before you know it, you will find your exception to the rule.
