It's Strange How Things Work Out

So just the other month I was talking to my friend/neighbor about how I think I'm better off being single, how I want to focus on me and my career and just getting it out of this college town as soon as possible.

However, just days after saying that, I meet this guy who works at a store next to mine and he asks me to hangout...which then turns into seeing a movie. Then before you know it, we've been hanging out at least once a week, seeing each other all the time at work, and just being constant with it. But it's just strange how after years of never getting anywhere with a guy except the usual, after years without having the guy I like like me back or vice versa, I'm finding myself in the pre-relationship stage. A place I haven't been in since ninth grade. And it's strange to think that it's when you feel like letting go or giving up completely when something happens to snap you right back into things. Something comes along to give you hope again.

It's just strange to see life work out the way it does.

Yes, it is very strange isn't it. Sometimes, when we want something very badly, we can appear "desperate" but once we no longer want the thing so badly, we are relaxed and when we are relaxed, things can happen, in a nice way. Hope your relationship flowers gently.

That is how it was when I got together with my husband many years ago. I had been in a relationship that was not a good one. After I broke up with the guy, I knew I still did want to find the right one but I felt like I was never going to find the one. I told God in my prayers, "that if it is not meant for me to marry that is fine, I will focus on finding myself a job etc",, then shortly after that prayer, I got together with my husband. It is interesting how things turn out.
