I found an unsent and unopened letter from a few years ago today addressed to an ex love interest of mine. The name sounded like a distant memory. Almost immediately, curiosity took over my mind. “I’m sure I’ve ‘found’ this letter more than once before, why haven’t I opened it? And why do I get the sudden urge to open it now? Why now? Why right now? Can I not wait until tomorrow?” Before tonight, I’d forgotten about its existence... why couldn’t I wait just one more day? Had I not found it, I wouldn’t have this sense of urgency!
And I think that’s the way it is with a lot of things in life. It’s like we’re kids again. There’s this “thing” which we lost or forgot we had and we know it’s there, in the back of our minds, just waiting for the “right time” to jump out at us (let’s face it, perfect timing doesn’t exist), and everything’s fine while nothing seems to happen. Then BOOM!! Hello! It’s as if we’ve discovered water for the first time. Or when we lose something, and we’re searching and searching and aren’t successful. Then, when not looking, it reappears in the most seemingly obvious place.
Suddenly, this “thing” is important again (even though it wasn’t 2 minutes ago). It becomes priority. Or we’re just anxious to get to it now.
This post had no real value, just a thought I had simply for finding this old letter (well 2015 ain’t too long ago, right? Maybe I’m just getting old, smh) Sorry, this is how my brain works 🤷🏻♂️ •
