the missing piece.

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

i never knew writing would become one of my passions, ever. it hit me out of the blue.

i suppose that's how love is. it hits you when you least expect it.

often times, in matters of meeting the one, i think about the missing piece meets the big o by shel silverstein {i think we all grew up with a little where the sidewalk ends in our lives, yes?}.

to me, it's about being your own whole person before you meet your match. to be in true, real love, we cannot serve as the missing or filler piece for the other person just as we cannot expect another person to serve this purpose for us.

falling in love, to me, means two wholes coming together, and as shel puts it "rolling together."

two wholes, well, make an even bigger whole. i like it this way.

here's to being your own big o so you can meet your most perfect o match.

might i suggest reading the entire book online here, too. it'll warm your heart, and i bet you'll take away a sweet message.

tonight as i flipped through my own personal copy of the book, i had a flashback of when i received it.

{handwritten messages inside book covers are such a treat, don't you agree?}

the note reads...

june 2008


i hope you enjoy this book as much as i do! you are such a treasure and the world is a more beautiful place with you in it! your friendship and insight bring me joy, soul sister! here's to rolling!


the world is a more beautiful place with you in it.

if this isn't the best compliment in all the world, i don't know what is. re-reading this three years later gives me the utmost gratitude.

now, i've since lost touch with this particular soul sister, but i hope she knows what an impact she had on my life. it's almost as if this simple gift she gave me in june of 2008 has helped shape my view on love.

pay it forward, my friends.

even the smallest gestures can impact us in the biggest of ways. i thank you, karen, wherever you are today. sending you goodness and love. i hope you've found somebody to roll with.
