~ It's Only Love | Sheryl Crow ~
For the weak it is unattainable.
For the fearful it is the unknown.
For the bold it is opportunity.
The future has many names.
Living life in the now, knowing that there are opportunities all around us, can earn a happy future. It is all about keeping an open mind and always keeping the future in mind, while learning from past mistakes.
The fearful can realize that the unknown holds opportunity, while moving ahead cautiously. From experience, I know that the fearful can also be bold when opportunity presents itself. Knowing and truly believing that just about anything is possible in the future gives the fearful hope for the future.
Past experience found me finding long distance relationships on the other side of the world. Fear of the unknown and moving on kept love a world away . . . a safe haven . . . lonely, but not really alone . . . proceeding toward love with extreme caution, yet at the same time proving that the opportunity to find an attainable love connection was out there for me when the time was right.
Those closest to me worried that I would live a lonely existence behind a computer monitor the rest of my life urged me to get out into the real world . . . one that I was not ready for. I tried. I failed miserably!
The message I'm trying to get across is to seize opportunities in your time and in your way. Be true to yourself with lots of patience. Fear of the unknown is not a bad thing . . . you can move on boldly and cautiously at the same time, knowing that anything is possible when you believe in yourself, trusting and listening to your instincts.
Who knew that a chance #followfriday on Twitter would lead to an awesome relationship, friendship through emails, chat and phone calls for a long time would lead to the most perfect love I could ever imagine.
We were married two weeks ago.
The future has many names . . . name your future.
