I can’t do this challenge…. for a few reasons.
1. I am a sap, an awful, miserable, overly romantic sap.
2. “An Affair To Remember” is my favorite movie ever of all time. If the line “The Empire State Building is the closest thing to heaven in this city” doesn’t mean anythign to you than go watch that movie right now.
3. I am hopelessly, head over heels in love with just one man for the first time in my entire life.
I can’t do it. There is no one I want to see in ten years. And I feel like if I gave anyone, even a random stranger, that piece of paper I would overly romanticize them in my head and begin to wonder if I was really in love or if it even really existed… and I don’t want to doubt it. Not anymore. Not when I just started to believe.
I don’t let go. I don’t move on. I hold on. To people, places, feelings. It’s what I do. I don’t need to try and hold on to someone for ten years. I will hold on, if it’s worth it.
So if I had to give this piece of paper to anyone I’d give it only to MQD. This is exciting to me. In my past I’d have used this an excuse to have a romantic fling in my mind with a handsome stranger. Because those mind-romances were what got me through my day to day. And now… finally… I’m not banking on the future making my heart race.
I wake up that way.
