Sometimes I tell myself it’s silly. That I’m totally ridiculous to be this strong, independent, forward thinking woman and still get flutters in my heart when I think of what might be my happy ending.
Happy ending. Doesn’t that sound silly?
I mean, it might but I have to admit, I believe in it. My soul longs for it. I can feel it in my bones that it is out there.
Don’t get me wrong, I know life is not a fairy tale in the typical sense of the word but I choose to believe that my version of it exists.
And why do I choose to believe that? Because I feel it. I can feel it. I can see it. And I’m working every day to build and prepare for it.
The things I desire in a partner, in a shared lifestyle, in an empire, but more so in the CONNECTION, I think about all the time. The connection I long for. The connection I’m preparing for every day. The connection I’m open and ready for. I won’t settle for less than that connection and maybe that is MY version of a fairy tale.
So yes, I’m a hopeless romantic. I cry at random sweet moments in movies, I watch Disney movies and feel like a kid at heart, I even hear sappy songs and believe that there’s no way that there isn’t something like that out there.
Yes, the super tough, get shit done, jeep driving, hell raisin, bad ass chick is a hopeless romantic too. And there is nothing wrong with that!
That’s my point here… if you feel something in your core, if you have a deep desire or belief in your heart that you think doesn’t “fit” or might not make sense or might seem silly, don’t ignore it. You feel it for a reason. It doesn’t have to make sense to anyone else.
And the biggest thing I want you to understand is that just because someone else thinks it’s silly or society tells you it doesn’t make sense, doesn’t mean you’re wrong.
Feel your feels.
Follow your heart.
And never settle for less than butterflies.
