You know that little voice in your head that tells you to take a risk, even if you've decided that the risk you're being encouraged to take goes against what you believe to be your best interest? That voice that says, "Do it now. Don't wait." A friend heard that voice prior to a recent adventure ... and the payoff was big.
Here's the story. My friend, like many of us, held Paris in her mind as the city of love, the place you arrive at with your person, the person for whom she held a deep sense of belonging, a deep appreciation. The problem was, she hadn't met that person yet. In planning a trip with her family for the summer, she asked where they should go. Her kids suggested Paris. She hesitated, thinking, "Paris is the place I'm saving for myself and my love." But she hadn't yet met her love. Then a voice inside her whispered, "Go."
So, she did. She and her daughters had a wonderful time. And there in Paris, the city of love, she met someone - someone who made her catch her breath, someone who made her feel a bit funny inside, someone who inspired a feeling she hadn't felt in over 20 years. He pursued her. She gave him a list of ten reasons why it wouldn't work. He read the list and said, "Nine of these aren't real reasons. I'll work on the one that is." That reason was distance. He is actively working on closing the gap.
With him she feels cherished. He meets each item on a list she created prior to meeting him of what an ideal mate would look like. He is her match intellectually, personally, professionally. He is beautiful inside and out and he recognizes and cherishes the beauty in her.
Paris is the city of love for dreamers, soul seekers, the penultimate location for lovers who recognize the best in themselves and their mate. My friend found her love because she took a risk. Reality matched her dreams. The payoff? She is calm. She is sated. And all she had to do was listen. We know the way. Will you take the risk?
