Here’s the scoop about lost loves.
The ones who got away, and the almost lovers.
The love that was a love when the timing wasn’t right.
We fall in love with these people in the most complicated of times, when we’re fresh out of an old love, and dancing in the flames of a new one. This is the ‘transition time’ when we try to leave our old wounds to heal themselves, and time is your new best friend. You’ve probably come across this love once, and you fought yourself over it every single step of the way. And eventually these people have moved out and on, and so have you, and you continue to name them the “the one you loved when the timing wasn’t right.”
This conventional love in an unconventional time is the worst, but it didn’t have to be.
Love is love, no matter the time; fighting all the boundaries and breaking their way in. This love takes the biggest parts of you, turns it all inside out, and brings your crazy straight to the surface.
The important part about this love, is that you can choose.
Choose right then and there that loving that person when the timing wasn’t right is worth it. You don’t have to miss them, or wish that they’d return. Hope to run into them back in your hometown, or when the songs that you both shared come on, only to change the radio station.
When you choose to love this person when the timing isn’t right, you commit to a whole new kind of love, the one that is taken with the worst and given to the best. Choosing this person means that love conquers it all. That there weren’t any moments spared, that life was lived, the battles fought, and fires lit.
When you choose; you choose to dance to the shared song, and walk down those hometown streets. Always together and never wishing.
Open that special wine, take the vacation, learn the language, but most of all; forget the time and fall in love.
Much Love, Miranda
