I’m smitten!

We met!!!

And it was delicious. Beautiful. Exactly what I was hoping for…and more, actually. Because both of us felt the same way. It was like he says-‘Kismet’.

The concept of destiny, karma, kismet is something I’ve been fascinated with all of my life.

I don’t believe in accidents. I believe everything has a predetermined significance but you don’t know it, since you haven’t lived it yet. The ‘hindsight is 20/20’ phrase means the same thing to me. Reflecting back gives you insight into what you didn’t know at the time. If you did know what was going to happen, would you have made different choices? That’s really hard to know when you aren’t really in that moment. You can theorize and guess, but it’s not going to be accurate.

If we didn’t believe that destiny was a legitimate path in life we wouldn’t have so much discourse about it. We all need to have something to believe in. I think it’s important as a human being to find things that are larger than yourself to hold yourself responsible to. Whether that’s scientific inquiry, religion, the concept of the Universe, Cosmos and the unseen hand that may or may not be called God, love, humanity…anything that is not about ones own self.

Meeting this new love-yes, I am calling it love, is showing me the fruits of my labor. When you truly believe in something, don’t give up on yourself and know that life will give you back what you put into it, how can things not fall in place?

I can’t predict the future, although if I could, I would say this man and I have some serious living to do together. We both have huge lessons we’ve learned in life and are recognizing that we bring so much peace into each others’ worlds around love.

My dream was to find someone I could be open with, share my feelings and thoughts with unabashedly and wholeheartedly with the hope of reciprocation.

That has come true! He not only does all of that, he has helped me peel off more layers of myself that I didn’t know needed to come off.

A good relationship with anyone teaches you how to dig deep and become a better person. They aren’t meant to be easy and smooth sailing. I don’t expect that we will be on this cloud forever, but we just began, so I’m riding it for as long as I can. One day this cloud will rain, but again, if I can predict the future, we will both be holding an umbrella for each other.

  1. I’m so glad you are taking the time to enjoy each other here-and-now. Interesting that on your blog site below, it says it uses ‘Akismet’ to deal with Spam. Your other version of A-Kismet 🙂

    1. Hahahaha!!! Didn’t even realize that! That’s an interesting play on words…
      Thank you my sweet! It’s beautiful to witness myself allowing presence into my life without feeling the tug of the future. Something to be said about our pandemic…

  2. Sweet friend, I am SO happy for you 🥰🥰🥰. Enjoy the journey with him, as much as the present moment. Love you 😘.

    1. Thank you my beautiful sister!!! I am enjoying all of the moments…and the timing is super intriguing…I never thought my time would come during a pandemic. It’s really fascinating and when they say ‘when you least expect it’, I guess ‘they’ knew what they were talking about! I didn’t expect this from COVID-19…or bumble…but am I grateful! ☺️🥰 I love you too!!!
