Getting what you asked for
I heard this Michael Buble song this morning on the radio. Fun, catchy tune. Made me smile.
And the lyrics...
I might have to wait,
I’ll never give up,
I guess it's half timin', and the other half's luck,
Wherever you are,
Whenever it's right,
You'll come outta nowhere and into my life.
And I know that we can be so amazin',
And baby your love is gonna change me,
And now I can see every possibility, mmmmmm....
Somehow I know that it’ll all turn out,
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out,
And promise you kid, I'll give so much more than I get, mmmm....
I just haven't met you yet.
I had to giggle because it reminded me of my list of fabulous qualities I wanted in a man. It reminded me of all of my hopes and dreams of a man who adores me and how I'd fall and it would be so perfect.
Then, when a real man showed up in my life from out of nowhere, I didn't trust it. I was scared. I didn't want to fall though he was totally fall-in-lovable.
I was laughing out loud at how we TOTALLY get what we ask for.
But are we always ready for it?
Perhaps things happen exactly as they're supposed to. Perhaps we are ready but aren't aware of it. Maybe we are ready on some level and we just have to clear out the cobwebs to find that sense of readiness.
Clearing out the cobwebs. I feel like I've done a lot of that lately. Making room for more.
It starts small. You're making room in your bed by not sleeping in the middle anymore. Making room in your heart. Making room in your life. Feeling with absolute certainty that what you want is on its way. So much certainty that you don't even wish for it anymore. You don't even think about it. You go through life smiling because you can feel the love already.
You never know what's around the next corner. It could be exactly what you've always wanted and you just haven't met him or her yet.
Are you ready?
