At some point in your life, you’ll meet someone, and it’ll be so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, as friends, as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive.
A year ago, it was apparently my turn, when my heart went on the greatest adventure… When I met the one I now call my Angel of music and who I felt so comfortable talking to… who I felt shelter to talk to.
A year ago, I was embarked on this magical mystery ride of life, when you meet that someone who changes your life for the better. Random and happy circumstances are very likely to be the key words to summarise that day. Circumstances, which allowed me to breathe again and feel alive after years and years of under-water living.
A year ago, I found a matching heart and soul, at least as crazy and weird as I am and who sees things, and life in general, the way I do.
So… I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something – something great and strong, powerful and unbreakable.
A friend of mine once told me that some people were just meant to be together eventually… and that when this happens, when we meet someone we feel so connected to, giving up is absolutely not allowed, not even worth considering.
Unfortunately, life circumstances sometimes separate you from friends, family and lovers, but I truly think that when someone deeply gets into your blood, heart, mind and soul, it takes way more than “circumstances” to erase what’s just born – the feeling the meeting created and the power of the connection.
Love is precious. No matter what kind of love it is. Love is not about obligation. Love is about spontaneity. Love is about caring and keeping your other half safe.
Annie Dillard once wrote that « if we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business because we’d be too cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.” We need to go with our passions, be led by them. We should never ask ourselves if this is realistic or not. Why should we listen to our brains? They only prevent us from flying and being who we really want to be. They keep our feet on Earth and never allow us to take off. We only live once and living the normative way, according to society’s rules and conventions, simply is unimaginable.
But today was not that day of a year ago and nothing extraordinary really happened, so today… I took a deep breath and listened to the old whistle of my heart, still looking towards to what’s going to happen next.
Life is an adventure I don’t want to miss a single step of.
“With love, there are no rules. The heart decides and what it decides is all that really matters.”
― Paulo Coelho
