My World is Spinning Too Fast

A PRETTY RARE HAPPINESS

I’ll be hitting a pause in this blog for a couple of days. My mythical pet giraffe demands that I stop blathering here and focus on offline things, like writing, catching up with old friends and meeting new people. Plus, saving the world, one coffee cup at a time. It also said maybe I should lay off on social media for a bit, while I’m at it. I can probably give up Snapchat and Instagram, but Twitter? TWITTER? How dare you, mythical pet giraffe. Twitter is, like, my very own playground. I get a lot of entertainment and brain food there. IT’S SACRED.

Now let’s switch the channel. Turn the knob once, twice, thrice, and we arrive here:

Maybe two is better than one
But there’s so much time to figure out the rest of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone

I don’t know what it is about him, exactly. Words don’t do justice when it comes to him. Maybe that’s why I can’t be clearer or more coherent about it. All I know is that whatever it is that he has going on, it’s the good kind. Good enough to make me feel better about myself. Good enough to make me see some of the things in life differently. Good enough to make me see that broken hearts don’t always mean the end. Good enough to see the good in him. THANK YOU.

Take my hand, let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
I’ll be damned, Cupid’s demanding back his arrow

It’s too bad I had the timing wrong. Or maybe I didn’t know. Maybe I never knew what to do with you, until it was too late. All right, Cupid, here’s your arrow. You wanted it back, right? Go on. Consider it relinquished.

“I’ll be damned, Cupid’s demanding back his arrow”

For weeks, I needed the time to catch my breath because, you know, FEELINGS. Okay, I know I said I’ll be braver and more courageous about that, but I think… well, baby steps, amiright? 😀 For now, it’s enough that I said what I wanted to say and that I did not expect anything in return. The things — consequences, if you will — that followed after that are things I had to deal with and accept, but at a time where I’m okay again. I think I’m okay now. I wish I could say the same for the other person. *sigh* (Poor person. It’s like I threw a grenade at the doorstep without warning. I’m really sorry about that.)

I’ve mentioned in the past that things change us before we are even aware of it. And if my life has been nothing but epiphanies since November of last year, then it would be a shame to not grow from those experiences and apply the lessons I’ve learned about life and love. Well, Cupid, here’s your arrow. You have won. ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?
